I'm joining Susan at Between Naps On The Porch for Tablescape Thursday AND I'm also joining Suzanne over at Coloradolady, for Vintage Thingy Thursday.
Happy Birthday Melissa! One of my BFF's birthday is Friday Dec 18th... as any of you who have a birthday in December knows, it often gets LOST in all the Christmas hoopla. This happens to be a pretty big birthday for Melissa she is turning 40~(whoops don't tell her I told you that). I wanted to have a luncheon for her and while I wanted a festive tablescape I didn't want it to be Christmas so I went with a blue, white and silver theme.
I used many Vintage items on this table. To start I used a milk glass bowl found on the Longest Yard Sale in 2008 for $1 and added blue and silver ornaments bought last week in a bag from the GW. I added a few silver floral picks. I had a silver jingle bell wreath that I set the bowl in for more sparkle.
I used round placemats found on sale last year at Kohl's for 95 cents each. I added my vintage milk glass luncheon plates with matching cups in the grape pattern. I found the 4 plates at one thrift and then was very lucky to be able to find 4 matching cups. I layered a cobalt blue bread plate on top with a dark blue napkin in a silver napkin ring. The silverware with blue handles was picked up at the thrift for $4.
This centerpiece is so glittery! I love how the light catches the different colors, textures and shapes of the blue and silver ornaments.
I plan to serve soup in the cups and have a variety of salads to choose from. I will have homemade sourdough bread and crackers.
I used plain glasses for ice tea and added a little bow with some leftover ribbon from my daughters wedding 3 years ago.... I like how it adds another texture and more sparkle.
I turned the plate long way with the cup at the top. I like the the oval look you get by doing this.
A better look at the luncheon plates and cups.
This is a piece of Cobalt Blue Depression glass I won on ebay. I love the handle on this little dish, I will use it to hold olives and pickles.
Then of course here is the cake plate that will hold a small chocolate brownie cake...My friend LOVES chocolate. I found this cute cake plate at Marshall's marked down to $2 (yippee) and a cheese plate dome for $1.
A little more silver and blue bling on the table along with white tea lights.
Vintage milk glass, cobalt blue depression glass and new pieces make a sparkly fun luncheon table...So Melissa Happy 40th Birthday!
I will be setting my Christmas table next week.....come back and visit if you have time....Merry Christmas everyone!
