Can you say Tablescape?

Hello all you tablescape lovers, we have a special treat for you this week! On Saturday a tablescapes luncheon was held by the Health Center Auxiliary in our community of Carrington, ND. The funds raised at the event will be used to help purchase medical monitoring equipment for our ambulances.

Cassie co-chaired the event (on a fractured foot, no less!). Lynette, Cassie and Andrea each participated this year by decorating their own tables. It was so much fun!

We will start off this tablescape series of posts with Lynette's table.

It was called "Springtime Flea Market - Open Rain or Shine".


This lovely, heavy statue was part of the centerpiece for her table. She was perfectly worn and weathered and adorned with some junky jewels and a flower. Awesome, huh?

At the base of the statue stood, well, another statue of course!

The bow tie was the perfect touch!

Around the base of the statues were all sorts of great, interesting objects she has found at flea markets and thrift stores. It was all so stunning together and these pictures really don't do it justice - it was colorful and F-U-N!

The details on her amber-colored glasses were beautiful. Lynette attached metal numbers and letters to the stem - the perfect touch!

Her plates were a grey and cream, and in between them and the top glass plate was a peacock feather. Cool.

Another fabulous detail: Old wrist watches used as napkin rings...

Oh, didn't I mention over the table hung this umbrella? Crystals hung on fishing line to resemble raindrops. Wow! (Get her theme now? - Springtime Flea Market - rain or shine!)

As if that wasn't enough, the luncheon guests at her table each received a small homemade pecan pie made by Lynette! (It was yummy, by the way!)

"Carol could never be sure if it was her sexy glasses that kept Howard lingering at the table...or if it was her pecan pie."

Hilarious, Lynette, and your table was over-the-top!

*Stay tuned to our blog: Cassie's table is up next!*

We're partying with Donna at SNS 81....come along!
