Table For Two

I missed Tablescape Thursday last week because we were on our way to Chicago. I'm so glad to be home and have a few things to show everyone!

This weeks tablescape is set up in our basement family room.

A big Thank You to Ellen, Cherry Kay and Anita for letting me know the name of the footed sherbet glasses  that I used in a tablescape awhile back. They were handed down to me from my mom and while I really loved them, I didn't know their name. Mr. Fanatic bought me a set of 12 of Iced Tea, Water and Juice glasses for my birthday (which is today). The pattern is Boopie and they were made by Anchor Hocking back in the 50's -70's.

The left one is an Iced Tea glass and the one on the right is a Water glass.

Here's the Sherbet/Champagne glass that I used in my tablescape awhile back.



I found the small cake stand at HomeGoods in Wheaton Illinois, while on my trip this past weekend.
The bottom cake stand is one that I previously bought at my local HomeGoods & looks a lot like the Boopie pattern.


I used a couple of  Boopie juice glasses as vases for the ivy.

After showing my mother in law a photo of the vintage linens I found at Goodwill , she gave me some of hers that she didn't use anymore. The tatted doilies were her mother's.

She also gave me this lovely runner and square tablecloth.





Last, but not least, the table is a recent Craigslist find. I've been wanting to replace my rectangular breakfast table with a round pedestal table which takes up less space. After I refinish it, I will bring it upstairs.

Thanks for stopping by!

  9. I feel right at home with this tablescape. I have a passion for birds and our master bedroom is done in these same colors and it features, you guessed it, quite a few birds!

    Thanks so much for visiting my new little blog and leaving such an encouraging comment about my first tablescape. Your comment about bringing home takeout was pure genius. I will have to try that!

    And....Happy Birthday!!!!

  11. The Boopie Crystal is a wonderful treasure. Mr. Fanatic came through for your birthday in a major way! I love your pattern for a number of reasons. First of all, it feels really good in your hand...weight and proportion is outstanding. Second, it's a design that works for formal or casual; traditional, transitional, or contemporary. AND...it's a wonderful family treasure, too! Your table is beautiful. Thank you for sharing your charming design and for stopping by my post. Come visit any time. Cherry Kay

    Great Table & Tablescape. I too have the Boopie glassware in Forest Green. My mother had a few but sold them in GS before I bagan my collection. They were a free giveaway in tea when I was young.
    There are about 5 different sizes and I almost have 10 of each one. This might give the Mr. Fanatic ideas for the next gift.
