Pastel Floral Themed Tablescape-Bargain Decorating with Laurie

I bought this needlework tablecloth at an estate sale years ago. I've never used it, because it is impossible to iron. It puckers everywhere. Before I turn it into something else (or sell it), I decided to use it on this feminine tablescape.

Plate stack for luncheon-Bargain Decorating with Laurie

Chargers in different pastel colors are the base of each place setting. They're different colors, because I bought them when a store went out of business. They had samples of one of each color for customers to choose which they wanted to order. The salad plates are Roscher.

A pink Depression Glass footed server will serve the butter. I bought it at a friend's yard sale. People love to have a yard sale with me, because I buy what they bring to sell!

That tablecloth is a lovely background for your table setting, and I love the various colors of the chargers with it. Pink DG is a special favorite of mine, too. I'm sure your girlfriends enjoyed it, too.

Beautiful tablescape Laurie, that pink depression glass dish is one of my fav's. It reminds me of all the depression glass I used to have that was passed down. Very pretty!
