Tablescape Thursday

Last Sunday we went to our friend's Family Day at their church and so I didn't do a tablescape that day, but I do have a few photos to share from a Tupperware party I had last month.

The shabby chic garden theme was one I used for my sister-in-law's bridal shower. It was a little more embellished... I used planters (like the one on the mantle, in the background) and put glass dishes in them to serve the salads. Since I am decorating with them and my menu for the TW party wasn't as extensive I didn't use them. I love this counter that overlooks the family room. It is great for setting out the food for get togethers that aren't formal! You can't see it here, but it "L's" a little bit on the right.


I love this two tiered basket! I lined it with plastic wrap so I could use it to serve the chips. Soon the basket will be used in my office/craft room to hold who know what!


This candle was actually pink! I love pink, green and a creamy white together! I got busy and didn't take pictures of the food, but we had chicken salad croissants, vegetables and dip, chips, brownies and Spanish Coffee Cake cupcakes.

Although this is a favorite color palate, this was the last time of this year to use this cheerful springy collection. Pink and green will show up again, but not the garden theme. Be sure to check out other great tablescapes over on Susan's Porch!

Bars like this are so great for informal dining..everyone can get what they want and makes it easy on everyone. We do this a lot at my cottage, too.
Your tablescape is wonderful and the menu sounds delicious.

Your counter use for a tablescape is a great idea. I have a similar counter and you've inspired some ideas for me. Also...I have something similar to your 2-tiered basket. Never thought of lining it and using it to serve. Great sharing ideas!! Hugs!
