Winter Tablescape

Thoughts of putting up my Valentine's Day decorations floated through my head this weekend and that is exactly where they stayed!  I decided to leave my winter decorations up for at least another week.  I just love the silver and aqua and couldn't bear to take it down just yet.  
 One of these days when I have more money to buy every kind of dish and glass there is as well as more space to store it all, I will have amazing tablescapes.  Until then, I will do my best to create tablescapes with what little I have.  Of course I can't leave out the chairs!
 White tulle, silk aqua ribbon and glittery silver stars are the perfect little chair decoration.  You know what kind of plates I can afford a lot of?  Paper plates!  I love to buy matching plates and napkins for every holiday.  These particular ones are from JoAnn's, purchased after Christmas so they were even more affordable!  Don't you just love the color and the sweet deer?  They are sitting on a crystal plate from the Dollar Tree.
 These aqua Ball jars work so well for drinking out of and the color matches perfect.  The silver charges with rhinestone trim are from Michael's.  I got them a few years ago but they always seem to have them around this time of year.
 Inside my cloche centerpiece is another Ball jar with a strand of aqua beads falling out of it onto the silver plate.  The star ornaments were purchased for 90% off at Shopko and are so pretty.  I bought all 4 that were left!  The big peacock feather ornament is from Wal-Mart and matches everything so perfectly.
 The beads are from Shopko too.  I paid 80 cents for them.  I love after Christmas clearance sales!
 Since there are only 2 of us, I usually only set up the table for two.  We hardly ever eat at the table but when we do, I try to make it feel special!
 I got new silverware for Christmas and it is still so shiny and new. I love the way the silver looks on the napkin and next to the charger.
 Silver and aqua are two colors that make me swoon!

 I just love my pretty winter tablescape and think it definitely deserves to be on display for at least one more week!
Do you have a 3 day weekend?  We don't take Martin Luther King Jr Day as a holiday since we are a private college, but I am taking it as a personal day.  My BFF and I are celebrating our 10 year "Friendiversary" tomorrow.  We will start out with coffee followed by a pedicure and then lunch.  I am really looking forward to a day of pampering and spending time with someone I hardly see anymore!  Have a great week!

How pretty this all is. I adore your new pretty.
Like you, one of my favorite colors is turquoise and the good thing, it can be used year 'round....including holidays. :)

Just goes to show ya! Even paper plates can be used for a tablescape--it's the details (as you've done so beautifully) that really make all the difference. Your table is so sweet. I hope you had a good friend day today! ~Zuni

I love that colour. When I redo my kitchen I want to go with the aqua for the accent colour I love the Ball jars and have quite a few.

Your table would perk up any winter day, and you show how much can be done with very little. Love that you and your BFF make time for each other. Good, good friends are worth keeping.

Hi Trisha,

I don't blame you one bit for keeping your pretty winter tablescape for another week. It is very pretty. The aqua canning jars just "glow".

Lovely color scheme, and if you change a couple of things out and add a little purple and red, it could be a Mardi Gras table!

Trisha, I love aqua and silver together also! Don't blame you one bit for wanting to hang on to this pretty décor a bit longer. Love, love your chairs! Everything looks very pretty. The plates are fun and gorgeous new silverware! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
