You may remember that I used them to fill Dollar Tree vases wrapped in burlap for my Pottery Barn inspired Easter tablescape …
…and the galvanized sap buckets that I found at the Country Living Fair on my Farmhouse spring porch! White tulips are my new favorite flower for spring!
And now, finally, my favorite way to use my white tulips…filling one of my double happiness jars…
…and spilling over into a Chinese-style pitcher and an octagonal ginger jar! I love the way the blue and white make the green leaves pop!
Then I added some blue and white candlesticks with long, white tapers…
…and sprinkled in some vintage silverplate, like this roll-top butter dish, a Goodwill find from several years ago.
Then I finished it off with a place setting that echoed the colors…blue and white with more vintage silver.
At each place is a beaded plate from Dollar Tree (yes…you read that right), a lotus bowl from Pier 1, which echoes the tulip shape, and a blue and white porcelain dessert plate with a Chinese pattern and silver trim around the rim. The bowls were another Goodwill find from four years ago (at seven for $4.54!) that I first showed you in my “saladscape” here. The set of six plates…on clearance for only $17…came from Bombay Company many years ago.
The silverware is my mom’s Silver Flutes from Towle, which adds just the right amount of simple elegance!
And finally, at each place is an Irish lead crystal tea glass paired with a wine glass from Goodwill. I find that mixing high end items with thrifting finds allows you to achieve an expensive look without having to spend a lot of money.
Not bad, huh? I think I have done a pretty good job of echoing the spirit of my inspiration tablescape…and without spending a dime on anything other than the tulips!
It’s not a perfect copy, but it has a sort of relaxed elegance (if there is such a thing) that I like.
I am loving the blue and white mixed with little sophisticated pops of silver and the sparkle of the glass!
However, Miss Kitty, in usual feline fashion, is not impressed. Her suggestion…next time go for black and white! Hmmm…I wonder where she gets that idea! LOL
