Place Setting...Starting small.

I have always been in total awe of all the wonderfully talented bloggers out there who have shared their amazing tablescapes...They all make setting a table seem so easy. Well, let me tell you that it does not come easy to me. I guess it will take me some practice...But where to begin? Well, I thought starting small would be the way to go for me.

So I present to you the small place setting I put together....
And it is with all thrift store finds...
Even the cute little faux egg is from the thrift store...I ♥ Thrift Stores!
Can you believe I found these beautiful rose print, made in France plates at the TS? I love them!

So what do you think for my first attempt at a place setting styled especially for my blog?



Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend.



Hugs and Kisses,

My mouth dropped when I read that everything was from the thrift stores! It's lovely Ana, beautiful plates!

That's just because you never put your mind into it... also because everyone else seems to have 100 family guests for lunch ahahahah

You have an amazing creative mind. So that's a start. The head in fact. You just haven't invested on it.

I love this table setting you created. And no Miss. It might be for one but nothing small about it. Look the napkin ring detail... the color of glasses bringing out the best of rose...

And you did it without robbing the bank. I bow to you!

Don't mind what I say, though, ask "experts" because I absolutely adore table settings for two. I do! And this one is a winner!

This is one of the prettiest table setting I have ever seen.
So delightfully charming.
Your blogging sister, Connie :)

I set the table every night with colorful placemats, linen napkins, candles, coordinated dishes, etc.

But, my table settings never look like the amazing ones I see on blogs. I agree, it is harder than it looks.

Yours looks very sweet.

It's just as charming as everything else you do! Your thrift store finds are amazing. You've got a good eye for spotting treasures and know just how to display them beautifully. Well done!

That's a beautiful place setting, my sweet friend. Your plates are really gorgeous as well as the pink glass and the little egg cup complete with egg.
You've done a great job on your first table scape.
Hugs, Cindy
