For some reason, it seems like everywhere I turn, a flamingo catches my eye! Last summer, I bought my first flamingo. Well, it was a set of flamingo glasses from the Salvation Army.
They came in this little basket with a set of six glasses. Now, I’m down to five! Hunter accidentally broke one just a couple of days after I got them.
I’ve been wanting to do a tablescape with some flamingo touches and since I picked up a metal flamingo at Old Time Pottery, I decided to do one for this week.
It’s going to look so cute in one of my flower beds!
I started by using a vintage tablecloth that my mom gave me. The leaves on the tablecloth reminds me of big tropical leaves. I used my flamingo glasses and candlewick glasses.
The table setting consists of rattan chargers (Walmart) topped with robin’s egg blue dinner plate ($ Tree). I then layered a white salad plate (Pier One) with a clear clam plate.
Hot pink napkins added a little pop! The pink flatware is a recent purchase from Goodwill.
Salt and pepper shakers are a Florida souvenir.
I found the little flamingoes at the Dollar Store.
TIP OF THE WEEK: When hosting a party or get together where you serve scoops of ice cream, get a head start by softening the ice cream, scoop individual portions onto a tray covered with wax paper. Put the tray in the freezer. Once the scoops firm up, put them into a larger bowl with a lid. When ready to serve, it will be super easy and quick to get the ice cream ready!
