Welcome to my pansy garden today for Tablescape Thursday - hosted every Thursday by the very gracious Susan of "Between Naps on the Porch".
My pansies are really feeling the heat - they do much better in cooler weather, so this is probably about the end for this season until fall. However I've set a cheerful table today with the last pansies of spring.
As always, there's a place set just for you. Let's see what's on the table today.
Pansy bread and butter plates with silver spreaders.
I bought these amethyst glasses about 20 years ago -- and I believe they came from Walmart.
A peek at the layers of dishes along with the silverware that came from my husband's family.
Plain white hotel napkins came from Marshall's last year and the napkin rings were found at an antique store last year as well.
This little flat bowl that contains floating pansies and a votive was my grandmother's.
My favorite color combination for the table is usually pink and green, but I've found myself attracted to a lot of the purple and green tables I've seen on TT lately. I found these pansy salad dishes for a bargain on eBay and for $3.99 and no extra shipping cost the seller also included the four matching bread and butter plates. What a sweet little set.
This is the marking on the back, but I don't know anything about them.
I found these green plates at the end of last summer for 75% off at Cracker Barrel.
White dishes from Big Lots last summer.
I posted a couple of weeks ago about this vintage tablecloth that I found on eBay.
A closer look at the pansy bouquet on the dishes.
A look at the real pansies from my yard. Don't they have sweet little "faces"?

So glad that you could join me this week. For lots of dish inspirations, be sure to visit "Between Naps on the Porch" where you're sure to find a table set just for you! I'm having a hard time catching up with everyone since we were out of town for a long weekend last week and in a couple of days we're going out of town again for our nephews wedding at Berry Hill Plantation in South Boston, VA. I'll be trying to catch up when we get back when I can take the time for a good visit!
