My First Tablescape--Thrifty St. Patrick's Day Tablescape!

This is my version of a green...as in dollar friendly, St. Patrick's Day Tablescape!

 My 13 year old daughter Tati has a different take for a St. Patrick's Day Tablescape...she set a more formal tablescape using some of the same items.  We had a lot of fun setting up our different tablescapes using some of the same items.  You can find her tablescape at this link:http://polkadotpantrysweets.blogspot.com/2010/02/st-patricks-day-table-setting.html.

We are linking up at Tablescape Thursday!  Come see many more tablescapes on display.  The link for this is:http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/.


 I am kind of undecided on the napkins.  There is actually green on it, but it doesn't show up well in the photos.  At home, I thought the red napkin was a nice contrast to the green...I am not so sure now.


These glasses were a happy find at the Dollar Store!  I just love the stem!


The bowls were found at the Dollar Store.  The placemats were from Wal-Mart bought for, I think, fifty cents in a post-season sale last year.


The plates were bought for fifty cents at the Dollar Store.  They were on clearance!  The silverware is from Wal-Mart.  The napkins were a gift from my sister-in-law Camille.

The plates, bowls, and stemware are all still available at my Dollar Store.  Maybe they are still available at your Dollar Store! 
Happy Tablescaping!

That's pretty! And you have taught your daughter well. Amazing to see how well she is doing with cooking, tablescaping, photography and blogging - at 13 years old! You must be very proud of Tati!

It was fun to read both your post and your daughter's. I am surprised she is only 13! I like your take with the colored napkin and am amazed at your dollar store finds!

So refreshing and makes me long for summer. Love how you show different ways to go with your pretty dishes. And I like those fun goblets too. Look forward to seeing more tablescapes from you.
