Inspired by QVC

Did I miss Tablescape Thursday last week? These few days have been going so fast that I can't remember what I do from one day to the next. Anyway, I am not missing it this time even if I only have a small one. Go to Susan's blog at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ to see bigger, better prepared and more elegant tablescapes.



Linking with Michael, AKA Gollum for Foodie Friday at http://www.designsbygollum.blogspot.com/ too.

I was in the home office surfing the web when my hubby called me to the family room. He was watching TV and came across QVC selling Polish pottery. And nope, I did not buy any cause they were too expensive at over $110 for each serving dish. But it gave me an inspiration for my tablescape.

I had already cooked chili and we planned to watch a DVD I got from Netflix, "Bad Company", so why not just eat in the family room while watching? Well, that's exactly what we did. I set the coffee table with Polish pottery.




I like to mix and match when I use the Polish pottery because different patterns all go well together since they all have the basic cobalt blue color on them somehow.



The lidded bean pot was just the perfect size to serve the chili for just the 2 of us.


I just grabbed 2 diet cokes from the frig. and took the 2 Polish pottery goblets (I only have 2 cause they are very hard to find) and filled them with ice. This is a very informal and casual dinner.

The napkin rings are rustic angel wings. I just bought them on clearance at Pottery Barn for $1.99, when we went shopping in Spanish Fort on Christmas eve.






I served the shredded cheese in an ice cream dish.


I used 2 crackled votive holders with cobalt blue rims. I bought them from Goodwill for $1.99 each. I was going to sell them at the store but could not part with them, lol.



I served some crackers on a flat oval dish.


And here's my whole tablescape. Simple and fast!




Right outside the window is this beautiful sunset and all we have to do is turn to the left to enjoy it.




We really enjoyed the relaxing meal and the movie too. If you want to see a funny movie with lots of action, go see "Bad Company". Thanks for stopping by and thanks again to our lovely hosstesses, Susan and Sally!
