One Of Those Days Tablescape

I'm having one of those days, weeks acutally.  You know the ones that I mean - there is more to do than there is time to do it.  This week has been pretty busy all around, work, home etc.  As a result, I have not had an opportunity to put together a tablescape....but, I did want to participate in Susan's weekly party....so, I'm keeping it real and sharing the magic of my life today.


Dinner plate and salad plate are white on white with a scallop trim pattern on the edge of the salad plate, which compliments the rope edging of the dinner plate.  Placemat is educational as well as functional adn consists of the current 'for Dummies' books that I need this week. 


Plasticware Silverware Flatware is black, which coordinates nicely with the yellow and white of the overall setting.  Accessories include glasses, flung carelessly on the setting as a fit of frustration erupts....Aleve and Tums are for...well, you know. 


I almost forgot to mention my glassware...it is new this week and found at Walmart.  Comes with an expiration date, can be recycled and since it is diet, cancels out all unhealthy items placed in the consumer's mouth.  Great concept and a bargain at about 79 cents.

Hope you enjoyed my tablescape this week.  Please join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to see some great ideas in tablescaping. 

All The Best,
Pin It!
