Rednesday,Tablescape Thursday and Thrifty Thursday

Tonight I am participating in Rednesday, Tablescape Thursday and Thrifty Thursday.  Why?  Well most of the red and green table setting used tonight I purchased very, very cheaply.  Or should I say, I was a very thrifty shopper!!  So please head over to Susan's blog to see wonderful tablesettings and to Leigh's blog to see other thrifty deals and of course Sue's blog to see lots of red treasures. : )

Once again, we are dining in the butler's pantry.  The formal living room is knee deep in packing boxes and worldly treasures waiting to be wrapped in paper and packed in a box!  I just love red and green so much together.  I came up with a little table setting showcasing both colors.  Enjoy...

Sorry the sun is so bright coming in the window.  What can I say, we live in Arizona!  And yes that is a tv mounted on the wall in our butler's pantry. : ) We all have our vices!

OK~ I purchased the green paneled grape vase for .25 at a yard sale
          The red striped salad plates I purchased at Fry's/Kroger after Valentines Day for .62 each.
          The little red lidded candle crock I purchased for .25 at a flea market.
          The red and white hot pad that the Fiesta pitcher is sitting atop I also purchased for .25 at the same flea
           market.
          The red doily chargers I purchased 2 years ago at Anthropologie  clearanced for $2.48 each.
          Both the votive holders and the candles in them were a gift from my friend, Lydia.

So I think that about wraps it up for this weeks triple header!

What great finds! And they all look perfect together! I love this red and green tablesetting; the little cherries on the napkins and glasses are so cute! It looks like a very lovely country farmhouse dinner!

Me and you have the same taste. I love the elegance of Kings Crown, but I adore red, retro, and cherries and then mixing stripes, checkered and different patterns. What I would do to sit at that comfy cozy table in the morning with a cup of coffee!!!

Ann, I am so happy to see the use of red/green for other than Christmas...those colors were made for each other. The charger plates are really pretty, you could use them with just about any color plates.
Are you near Bisbee and the Copper Queen? I love that area of Arizona...actually, to me that is home, after living there for almost 25 years.!

Blondie's Journal said...

This is such a fun and cheery table...I love it!! I like the idea of having a butler's pantry, too!! Your dishes are great and I love all the deals you got. I love Anthropologie clearance items...I have some dishes in my tablescape today that I bought online on clearance. Can't beat the prices.

Nicely done!! :-)

Hi again Ann,

I hear you are interested in a little cherry reamer. Please e-mail me if you were serious because I have one just like Sue's that I was going to send to her until she blogged about hers. She didn't need a twin!

This is one of my most favorite tablescapes of all time! I love the red and green together. It's just so summery. Those striped plates are really cute, but I especially love those doily chargers. I need to hunt some of those down!
Happy REDnesday!

I have lingered at your table setting! The green checks and the cherry red accents are wonderful -- this has a hint of retro, and you've updated and modernized it. Delightful! And I love the two picnic baskets -- what a great idea for storage (I'm always on the hunt for storage)!! Great, great table.

Ann, you are so obviously in your creative groove when you work with red and green! If only you had been sitting in the pics wearing your cherry sweater! :) Any chance the new house has a butler's pantry? xoxo
