Welcome to Antique Plaza’s first tablescape post! Our shop is filled to the brim with housewares and we want to show you how to be the ‘hostess with the mostess’ and put together a table that will make ANY occasion memorable.
So stay tuned, because Kat and I each have put together our own set ups for you to take a look at. Here’s mine…
For a daughter on her birthday…
The finest backyard tea party for her and three of her best friends, comprised exclusively from Antique Plaza’s vendors’ items.
The girls all get their own special aprons. Used as place mats at the gathering, they can be taken home as party favors too!
These adorable crocheted cup covers were the inspiration for the entire table and set the tone for color and mood. Reds, pinks, oranges, purples and blues are sprinkled throughout in both vibrant and pale hues to add youthful contrast.
A menagerie of tea pots, tea cups, and beloved stuffed animals makes for a festive yet casual party on the lawn. The blue cup candelabra was a great find. It was as if it was made just for this occasion!
The perfect pocket for the girls to keep their most prized possessions: gum, notes or mom’s lipstick.
Each guest has their own personal tea pots and tea cups…and with gorgeous pieces like this they definitely won’t be any fighting over who gets what!
EVERYTHING associated with this layout can be purchased at the Antique Plaza (with the exception of Kat’s pink elephant) starting now!
