Welcome to Tablescape Thursday! Today I bring to the table my Economical Elephants table. Why Economical Elephants you may say? I have been to a garage sale. THAT is a big event - in fact I went to the same sale twice! I never go to garage sales, but this time I drove by one and there was a lot of glassware. "Grandma" was from Spain and loved to entertain -- yes, that does rhyme ;) The grandkids had no interest in her glassware -- isn't that sad! Anyway several of the
elephants elements are from "Grandma." Truth be told most of my tablescapes are economical ones....
The stars of this table, of course, are the elephant plates -- love it that they are square.
I placed the fruit in the terra cotta baker. Shhh!! Don't tell anyone, but when I bought the Asian Pears, I thought they were yellow delicious apples ;)! I can't wait to make some roasted vegetables in the baker in the fall. "Grandma;s" roaster, with a cover, was $3.00.
I love "Grandma's flan dishes. Most like creme brulee will be served in these bakers. I recently saw some bakers like this in a Spanish importing catalogue. They sold "Grandma's" for 5 for $2.00. Love the pop of the orange napkin which provides a tropical feel, don't you think?
The green goblets are plastic and were on clearance for a dollar at Wal-Mart this spring.
I set the new orchid plant my husband brought home for me. Better get a shot of it now, it will die soon, under my care ;).
