New Tablescape

I went to Walmart yesterday and found this fabric for $1/yard. I bought four yards.

I did not realize that I had such a perfect match with this combination of dishes. I love the mustard, evergreen and rust colors.

See these gold glasses? They were a wedding gift in 1974.
It's amazing how well they have held up.
Unfortunately that groom did not fare nearly as well and had to be replaced years ago. :)

I also bought 4 yards of each of these bold fabrics.
I can't wait to do a table with the black one and my black dishes. I will have to do it for a birthday as it just screams "birthday" to me.


  1. That looks so festive Zoey! I love buying fabric too.


  2. Can't wait to see what you do with that fabric.
    Hmmmm I had a 70's model groom also that had to be replaced:))

  3. I love dishes and making "tablescapes" for various occasions with my dish collections.
    Don't you just love mix 'n match tablescapes?!!
    Your dishes and fabrics looks awesome!
    Love your site!

  4. You must have been a child bride. : )
    I got married 10 yrs later and I was 24.
    And your tablescape looks wonderful! Sandra Lee would be so proud.

  5. I had to laugh at the 70's model groom line!
    (I have a 60's model and he's still going strong)lol!
    Love your fabric. Your tablescapes are always amazing!

  6. Thanks, Tea.

    Pat, Do you think the 1970's models were flawed and they had to recall them all? ha ha

    Linda T, Welcome! I am so glad you are enjoying your visit.

    I was a child bride, Dianne. I married one month before I graduated from high school!

    Sue, they just don't make 'em like they used to! LOL. Although my 1980's model has yet to show a flaw.

  7. I always say I need to get remarried so that I can get all new stuff for the house! lol I just LOVE the materials you found to use as come up with such brilliant ideas, ya know that??!! Oh yes, that black one with the coloured polka dots certainly does say Birthday on it:-)

  8. I had to laugh at comparing the longevity of your wedding present versus the original husband. Amber glass was very popular in the 1970s.

    I find myself visualizing a dark green placemat under each place setting to make the light-coloured edge of the plate "pop" a bit more than it does on the busy pattern -- which I love, by the way, as well as the others.
