Tablescape Thursday

Join me at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday!

This isn’t really a tablescape but it’s kind of LOL. It’s the cutest tea set and dishes that I got at Marshalls! I just love it. They called it toile and it kind of is. It’s really nice! I also got a black and white toile basket!

Do you like it!?! I just love it. There is also a matching tiered server that I forgot to take pictures of! But you can imagine what it looks like :) I hope everyone is well! Sorry I’ve been so busy I am in summer school and that takes up a lot of time! All the best everyone!

Great taste for such a young thing. Did you learn from your mom? My daughter has total different taste than I.

Denise said...

That is such a pretty set. I never think to look in my local Marshals (or TJ Max for that matter). I should go and see what treasures I find ;-)

Rosemary said...

Hi Allie,
I love it! It would go great at my house too!

Very pretty. I made to a new Marshall's in a town close by yesterday and thought of you when I spotted a serving set based on brightly colored cupcakes! I took photos with my cell phone and will have to see if I and get them on a post!

School starting soon?

This set is gorgeous! I bet they just love to see you come through the door at your Marshalls! This is a very different kind of toile...very beautiful and simple. Just lovely. >:)

Sares said...

It looks pretty Alli! I guess all your shopping paid off when you finally got to put everything together. Love those dishes!

If you are not currently dating someone, you may have to make a confession--at least by your third date--girl, you are hooked!! Very pretty!

Tracey said...

Karen said...

Allison! How DO you find all these great things? I'm going to start shopping at your Marshalls! :)

Brenda said...

I saw some of those pieces in there! I would have bought them, but I don't have much to match it. Now if it had been blue and white, home it would have come with me. It is a classic color combination, however, and you will use it in all kinds of ways over the years! Good buy!

Sharlotte said...

I saw this at my Home Goods store and LOVED it! I'm so glad that you purchased the set and it looks GREAT! Have fun decorating with it {and using it too!}

Mary said...

It's a lovely toile print, with the birds, and not too busy. I hope you'll show it again when you've set the table for dinner, so we can see the server, too!

I love it! It's so versatile. You can use this for any occasion and just change your linens. I mean really, it's nice and classy. It would look great for the holidays with green or red linens all festive, but it's perfect for everyday.

Love black toile. Really cute set. Now all you need is a tea party. I am off to Marshall's to check out the tea server.

Chatelaine said...

I went to Marshall's and I bought the tiered server. I had been searching for one.

I also found an Eiffel Tower tray that was really cute too. When I have company over I am always looking for trays for cheese, fruit, etc.

Thanks for telling us about the set.
