22nd Tablescape - Yellow Spring

Spring is so colorful. This week I choose "yellow" as my theme color;
The center pieces are two pillar candles one is green and one is yellow - I purchased them at PAWS thrift store they were marked $4 each - but she gave them both to me for $4. I set them on small mirror pcs that I purchased at Dollar Tree for $1 each of course.

The center green vase is absolutely beautiful - it is embossed with flowers - a steal of a deal from PAWS Thrift Store $5.

The flowers came with another vase that I purchased from another thrift store for $2.

The beige doilie runner is from another thrift store $2

These sunflower desert plates I couldn't pass up - they were $2 for both; the tea towels were $1 for both - all purchased at Hospice Thrift Store.

The placesettings are each a little different - white chargers set on blue/orange placemats
Usinge 4 different colored napkins: orange, blue, green & yellow - one at each setting w/2 different napkin rings - stripes and flowers.

I used these cute sunflower bowls that I purchased all 4 for $2.99 at Jericho Thrift Store.
using my Pflatzgraff "Italian Vine" dinner plates and desert plates
I love the glaze of the Pflatzgraff plates - always on the lookout for more...

These cute margarita glasses bring spring to the lips

They are hand painted with different colored flowers on each glass - pink, white & yellow - purchased at Shepherd Center Thrift store $.50 each.
Then I placed a small white flower candle in each - evening comes the candles are all lite - Beautiful!
Tablescaping on a budget - it is easy; affordable and satisfies the "bargain-hunter" in me....Thanks to my sister, Dawn, for teaching me how to make my pics larger.
