We will start tonight off by having a thrifty, nifty little tequila bottle turned vase. Yep, that's right. I use Patron Tequila to make margaritas and save the bottles when empty. I just love the shape of these bottles. The possibilities for these little gems are endless...a trio on a mantle or in a window sill. Yesterday I spotted a bottle for sale at a local thrift store. Sadly, I didn't need to purchase it, as I have several!! My neighbors really do help with the consumption. :) It just occurred to me, wonder what the bars do with the bottles when they are empty? Maybe one could ask for the empty bottles. Anyway, I added epsom salt and some red gems to the inside,stuck a couple of carnations in and taped some ribbon around the neck. That's all...
The chargers were .99 each, last spring at Hobby Lobby
The dinner plates are Scarlett Fiesta ware.
The little monogram salad plate I purchased recently at Tuesday Morning. Sorry I can't remember the price.
The beauty on the table is the flatware.(Sorry, I tried and tried to get a picture of it alone but the glare made for a bad picture) My girlfriend, Lucille, collects this pattern First Love by Rogers in memory of her parents, as this was the pattern that they started their marriage with so many years ago. She had more than she needed and last spring gifted 4 place settings to me. :) I really do love my girlfriend!
Please head on over to Susan and Leigh's blogs to see some wonderful thrifty finds and lots and lots of great table settings.
