"Toyland" - Tablescape Thursday

Welcome to anther Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan over at Between Naps On The Porch.  The holidays may be weeks away, but blogland is all abuzz with great ideas for tables and other wonderful decor.

"Toyland" is a vintage tablecloth shown with Lemongrass Post 86 Fiesta and decorative salad plates.  The glassware is from Home Goods, flatware from Macy's, napkins from Tuesday Morning. The toys enjoying a ringside seat for this informal gathering are from my childhood days, so you know they are true antiques! There are also a few contemporary ornaments that seemed to fit right in with the older pieces.

These cute little vintage mushroom salt and pepper shakers look like they were made for this tablecloth!

The candle holders are all from Home Goods.

The wonderful graphics on this cloth reminded me of some of my toys the first time I saw it.

And then there are the toys.

There are some contemporary ornaments mixed in with the vintage toys too.


  1. Oh your table is just too cute! Love the whimsy! What a fantasy land!

  2. What a fun tablecloth and all the candles are a nice touch along with the wooden ornaments. Pretty tree too. How many tablecloths do you own and where do you store them all?

  9. Thanks ladies, it is fun isn't it? And makes for a great conversation piece with all the little toys.

    Joyce I store all of my vintage linens in a large antique pine armoir with glass shelves in it. I'm hoping to do a post sometime in January about how I store all my dishes and tablescape things.

    Sheila, this cloth came from eBay, some from local haunts, some from friends. They just seem to multiply at will!

    Check back on Friday for Pink Fish for Foodie Friday and a nutcracker Show and Tell Friday!
