A Patriotic Tablescape on a Thrifty Budget???
Sure thing, ...and just in time for the 4th of July!
Thriftiness can be beautifully assembled from items purchased at yard sales, thrift stores, and DOLLAR Stores!
And we can't forget, ...freebies and gifts! Doesn't get any cheaper than that! :)
Come take a look....
White cow and rabbit pitchers, and red and white striped polished cotton remnant (1/2 yard), thrift store purchases. (fabric, 50 cents)
Four small milkglass vases at each placesetting, found at various thrift stores, yard sales, and flea markets for an average of 50 cents each.
Noritake "Sweet Swirl" glasses, wedding gifts.
(Not a thrifty buy, but "free" to me! "smiles!)
Forged aluminum "butler" found at a local antique shop.
White dinner plate (used as a charger) and salad plate, part of a set purchased at Big Lots exactly four years ago. (Tuscany Classics)
Blue and white dinner plate, (and teapot and sugar and creamer), part of a set passed down from my Grandmother B.
Small blue star shaped dish, perfect for sherbet, found at General Dollar, for $1 each.
Blue placemats, another Big Lots purchase, for $1 each.
Glass stars found at Dollar Tree, as well as the three stems of red and blue flowers used throughout.
Forks, Gorham, passed down from Father-in-law.
Knives, Wallace, Christmas gift from parents.
$1.75 from Dollar General.
The cow pitcher is elevated on a beautiful vintage white scalloped cake plate, found on ebay several years ago, which can't be seen for the fabric.Just a few more shots...
