I really struggled with something to use as a centerpiece, I think this will be a work in progress over the next week or so, all ideas are welcome.
I found the gingham checked plates at HomeGoods as well as the quilted polka dot runner.
I had the place cards which matched perfectly.
I thought it would be fun to add a little luck from the leprechaun and found these at the Target dollar spot. I filled the baskets with some candy as well.
Our menu consisted of a green salad and lasagna. The girls all brought wines and one brought nummy oatmeal raisin cookies. The wine glasses are Riedel Pinot Noir glasses, my favorite. These are actually the shorter stemmed version, I also have the longer stems.
The napkin rings I bought at an estate sale, set of 8 for probably $2. They have a great basket weave pattern on them. The napkins are a set of 12, hotel, from HomeGoods which I believe were $6.99. I use these with a fall tablescape as well.
So, now I am off to the thrift store to see if I can't get some more inspiration for my centerpiece as well as my mantle. I realize soon enough I will be decorating for Easter, but I have some special guests arriving next weekend, so I want to do something a little different.
