Thrifty Tuesday

Some antique plates I bought on the weekend (last one I got a few weeks ago). I bought others but I'll show them another time! In total I got about 10 plates and they all cost next to nothing. From left to right: $1, $6, $2.

I also got this beautiful lace doily for $12 which covers our 'new' round table (which we salvaged from a neighbour who was throwing it out a few months ago). The doily looks so pretty and because the table has a glass top it can fit underneath and avoid all the usual spills that come from dining.

But what, I hear you ask, has all this got to do with Easter?

Simple, all you need to do is arrange some favourite (mismatching) china plates on a table, add nests, eggs, flowers to you hearts content (I cheated and bought meringue nests!) and voila you have a beautiful setting for Easter tea!

  1. What a lovely idea. I wish I had of seen this before we had our easter sunday morning tea. This would have been perfect!


It's so wonderful to read all your comments, thanks for stopping by Cornflakes & Honey! x :-)
