Casual Tablescape

There's still plenty of time to enter my Cottage Charm Giveaway.  Just click on the link in my sidebar.

The other night I made a fun tablescape on a whim while getting ready for dinner.  Here's what I came up with.

The centerpiece urn I got for $5 at a yardsale last year.  Forsythia stems are from A.C. Moore.

I love the color it adds to the kitchen.

Wine is from our visit to Peddler's Village and was made at the nearby Chadds Ford Winery.  Can you tell I was having a bad day?  Ha!
The glasses I purchased years ago at Sam's Club.

Table linens are from Bed, Bath & Beyond.

I got a set of twelve wicker chargers at a yard sale last year for $3.  The melamine plates are from Walmart.  Napkin rings are from a church flea market a couple years ago.  They are sweet little watering cans with a weathered green patina.  

Hope you are enjoying your week.  It's been gloomy and rainy here all week.  Looking forward to a sunny weekend!

I love the color of the plates and the napkins! I also love wedding bells (that is what we call the yellow flowers. :o)

Setting a pretty table makes a good meal all the more enjoyable. Your table looks so inviting. The Chadd's Ford Winery label is quite colorful!

I love forsythia, it is so cheerful. This table certainly brightens up a cloudy day. I love the napkion rings too!

We are in the "rain belt", too. Your table is a ray of sunshine! I love all the greens.

Isn't it crazy how much impact forsythia can have?
