Trev and Gary's "frugal" tablescape

Thought it would be fun to post a tablescape of our cousin's this time. Pat and I challenged Trev to design a table "on the cheap" without using any of his Waterford, Spode, Haviland, Epiag, Lenox, sterling silver, etc. So he took us up on it and came up with a pretty neat table. None of the dishes, glasses, or placemats were over a dollar. He borrowed some items and went to garden and the neighbor's for flowers.

Trev and Gary's dining room table holds six comfortably - they were having seven people over for dinner. They set up a small square table nearby and used the same theme. Both tables were beautiful. I only wished I had taken more pictures.

Just another view

Dollar store stemware worked well for the theme.

Trev made two gorgeous flower arrangements in soup bowls of the same dish pattern.

Simple and elegant salt and pepper shakers (not cheap but we let it slide......)

Gary turned the lights down just before serving the meal.

A quick look at the "extra" table. Naturally, it has a fresh flower arrangement, too.

One last look.
