It’s nice to settle down to a nice, casual winter dinner after the craziness of the holiday season begins.
I’ve used a vintage holiday tablecloth found at a yard sale. I like that it features pinecones and has those random red blocks throughout for just a little pop of color.
The green dinner plates were a thrift store find. They were the perfect green to accent the Fortessa Evergreen bone china plates which I picked up at one of their warehouse sales.
I’m also using the green Whitehall glasses and compotes I found at a thrift shop. The flatware is a Dansk pattern we have had for years. It came from the Dansk outlet which has since closed; I still miss that store! I used brown Bed, Bath & Beyond napkins from my napkin stash with yard sale wooden napkin rings.
Also featured is this fabulous tureen I snagged at one of my favorite thrifts. I couldn’t believe the super price on this piece, which also came with six matching soup bowls. It is a Bordallo Pinheiro set for which I paid $18. Yes, you read that correcty, $18. Wowser!
I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my thrifty purchases in action. I hope you, too, have a chance to enjoy a relaxed, casual dinner with your loved ones sometime in the coming month.
