Pizza~Italiano Party Table!

Time for a Pizza Party Tablescape!

This tablecloth is great!  So different...
a California Handprints
that I coveted and finally nabbed.

Such a  fun cloth with great graphics. 

Topped by thrifty things, of course!
Dollar store white plates, red paper plates,
and thrift store glasses.

Lemons & limes thrown in for a "pop" of color.

Both sets of candlesticks are Avon, "thrifted".
Pearlized Sheffield knives (gift).
Reed and Barton Sterling forks(Diadem). 
Why, don't you always eat your pizza
with sterling silverware?

White fire king bowls I found when "Birthday thrifting"
(shown in last weeks post),  and  a pair of  
"thrifted" Noritake S & P shakers, all 
sitting on a Wilendur Dogwood tea towel.

I've had the short Avon Cape Cod candleholders
for a few years, and just added the tall pair
from last Saturday's "thrifting". 

A nice glass of wine, served in winery glasses
from a recent tour & tasting. 

Great tablecloth graphics: wine vinegar, pizza pie, mushrooms and spaghetti.

A close up of more of the graphics.

Feel like some Pizza?
Buon Appetito!

  19. Oh how fun is your table? I love all Italian food. I once had to embroider your Italian saying onto a white table runner in black thread for some girls who were taking Italian lessons. They were buying it for another member of the group. They even went to Tuscany for a holiday with their tutor and stayed in a Tuscan villa.
    Your post brought back the memory of how enjoyable it was embroidering for these girls. One day I will go there too. I have promised myself. :)
