We do not have a dining table in any of our outdoor spaces.
We used to, until I called the nice people at The Salvation Army and asked them if they would come and pick up our old deck resin wicker furniture that I had just dragged out in to our driveway. Big Daddy is still bitter about this. Apparently he didn’t mind having to get a Tetanus shot after eating at that table and chairs.
I am serious. That stuff was all to pieces.
So today I am setting a 4th of July table in our dining room. And I am not using anything particularly 4th of July-ish, either. I am taking the opportunity to put it all together using my ever-growing collection of blue and white dinnerware!
I found a stack of these Finlandia bowls at my Goodwill for $4. They were all shrink-wrapped together so It was kinda a $4 leap of faith. Three were newer Churchill and four where the original maker.
Out of all seven bowls, only one was chipped 🙂
The blue striped napkins I actually found last Fall in the Dollar Spot at Target.
They were $3 for a pack of two.
This little plate was also a Goodwill find for a quarter.
The table runner is actually a scarf I found on clearance at Walmart 🙂
Five bucks y’all .
The centerpiece I made from red flowering annuals I found marked down in the garden section at Walmart. I spent less than eight bucks. I had the container and the round woven tray that I added for a little texture.
Love that little rooster!
I gotta tell y’all I am really enjoying collecting, displaying and setting tables with blue and white tableware. If I wasn’t a cheapskate it would be a lot easier to find.
But what in this world fun would that be?
Blogs I love!
