Every once in a while, I pay a visit to one of our local Dollar Tree Stores. Recently,
I did just that, and I found packages of disposable flatware that looked too good
to pass by. Eight silver and black, sturdy place settings for $ l.00. I also found
attractive black and white designed placemats for a dollar each.
Here I used them with Costco sturdy disposable/reusable plates, for a casual luncheon.
Of course a few fresh flowers and a candle, make everything look better.
Right? Thank you Dollar Tree, for providing some fun surprises for people like me.
This week, while keeping our three grandchildren, I let our
granddaughter use the purchases to set up her pretend tea
party. She also used the empty yogurt jars and a
faux carnation that I had in the cupboard, to finish her
tea party table top.
This was the plate of food that she served to me:), in the early morning hours
of her play time.
I purchased extra fruit in anticipation of their visit.
design. Here I chose to serve my fruit, using the forks. It was a fun way to serve
fresh fruit and dip. She loves helping me in the kitchen, and I enjoy teaching her
ways to add beauty to food served, especially using my dollar finds.
It is a cloudy, overcast day here, so I thought I would share a touch of sunshine with you.
This basket of sunflowers were on the floor of a local market we visited on Friday.
Thank you for stopping by today!
