I am happy to join Diann at the Thrifty Groove for her Thrifty Tablescapes Party #4.
The sunflower table topper was a gift from one of my clients in the bank where I was working, several years ago. Here is a closeup of the detail.
The yellow dinner plates are from Dollar Tree. The brown star shaped plates are from Bed Bath & Beyond, originally priced at $7.99, I found them on sale for $1.99 a couple of months ago, I bought four of them.
The flatware is a recent purchase from Ross, which I discovered in New Jersey. It is the closest one to me. I think the 20 pcs. for 4 was $9.99. It picks up every color in the salad dish.
The amber glasses were my mother's, I remember them as a child, so they are at least 45-50 years old.
If anyone knows anything about them, like name brand, please let me know. There are no markings on the glasses. I had more than a dozen but with two moves, I am down to four of them.
These adorable bee napkin rings are a giveaway from Diann after her very first Thrifty Tablescapes party in June. They are from Christmas Tree Shop. (I received other goodies as well, but they will be introduced in future posts). Every one knows how much bees like sunflowers. The napkins, in keeping with the "thrifty theme", are paper but pretty.
My "centerpiece" of sorts - the "B" is from Stein Mart several years ago, and the shelf sitter scarecrow is from Cracker Barrel a month or so ago. He will be showing up again as I start to take out autumn decorations.
