This was how my table looked like when I welcomed mom and dad on Friday evening- they were to stay at mine for the weekend. It was 7 and I really didn’t know whether they would like to dine immediately or have a cup of tea first. Hence the mixed arrangement in gold and warm pinks: primarily because the season called for it and secondly because it also happens to be my mum’s favorite color. However, what I’m really intrigued to show and tell you is that most of the elements that went into giving this tablescape its warm and rich look actually came from the flea market and a dollar store. Now, howzzat?
Here’s a closeup, you might like! I wish I could take a picture of its maker, but I shall update this post with the name. And here’s the cost/item. Such a bliss to the eyes these price tags are.
Gold, hand blown glasses: 1$ each
Antique candle stand with cherubs: 2.5$ each
Teacups: 5$ for a set of 4 (on sale, dollar store)Coaster: Self made
Side plates: 2.5$ for a set of 6 (dollar store)
My mom not only loved it but actually was very impressed that her genes have expressed themselves in me quite well. We had so much fun making old school breakfasts and traditional lunch. I’m gonna miss mom and pa terribly, now that they will be gone in less than 24 hours. Why do happy days always tend to end before we even realize its started? *sobs*.
