I'm joining Susan of "Between Naps on the Porch" for another Tablescape Thursday. This week my table is centered around one of my favorite things - ivy. With many of you packing up kids for college - I sort of tongue in cheek have called this my "Ivy League" tablescape.
Welcome to this weeks table where....
....there's always a place set just for you!
I was delighted to find this vintage tablecloth at an antique store in Centerville, VA earlier this summer when we attended our nephew's wedding.
It's in great shape and I fell in love with the ivy and lattice motif.
I brought out my little shabby terrarium and filled it with ivy.
These smoked water glasses seem to bring out the grey of the lattice design.
A layering of the dishes and the mis-matched silverplate.
Each place is topped with green cloth napkins tied up with a green gingham bow.
White "Gollum" dishes.
These green chargers I found last fall at a boutique in Virginia Beach named "The Ragged Robin".
I picked up this little white leafed dish in Atlanta last year at a Ross store.
The Target birdies flew in for a visit.
This little iron birdbath was perfect for holding a tea light. I found this last summer at one of my favorite little local antique stores that's going to close shop next month. I'm really sorry to see them go -- very nice and helpful owners. I was able to find some nice things on sale last weekend that I'll be using in some upcoming tablescapes.

And a little busy bee has buzzed by too.

One more closer look before we say....
...."good-night" this week from the Ivy League Tablescape.
