Good Buys at Tuesday A.M.

I got a flyer in the mail this week for Tuesday Morning and knew I wanted to get there when they opened on the day the sale started. I love things that are monogrammed but don't usually have any luck finding our initial. They are either sold out or don't have enough of the item with our initial to complete a set. I was there when they opened and sure enough they only had two sets of these dishes with a J on them. I got the sets of salad plates, two trivets, coasters and even paper plates and napkins. I was a happy camper. I have black and white dinner plates so I thought they would be very versatile.
We had our daughter and grandchildren over for dinner last night and I decided to use them. If you remember the high chair post, I had extra material and used it for a square table cloth.
I put a bird cloche in the center with a bird nest under it and a couple of candles on the side.

The word Love.

An initial I painted and pulled out of my office.

Here's the coaster. Sorry for the glare.

They even had paper plates and napkins to match the real dishes, so I picked some up for desserts.

Thanks for coming by. I hope your week has been a good one so far.

I got that same flyer and intended on going over to see all of the monogrammed goodies too. I had to work the first day of the sale but headed on over there right after work.

I picked up 4 of the plates, napkins, and paper plates. Not alot of "C"s available. I also picked up a few for gifts. I think we scored big time!

Beautiful table, as usual! We have Tuesday Morning right down from my gym, but I never get an ad, so don't go in there. Hmmm. Maybe I should.

HI there.
I love gong into Tues Morning. You just never know what you are gong to find.And trust me, you never walk out empty handed.
I have become addicted to the bell jars and the cloches. And I thought my dish addiction was bad!!!
Your table looks great - and from the pictures you can't tell they are paper plates. You added all the finishing touches and it is gorgeous. Great job!
Have a wonderful Easter!

Thanks for your sweet comments on my easter tablescape! I love yours! What awesome plates from tuesday morning. I have a "B" flag similar to this pattern. I bet it's from the same line. I love the centerpiece on your table too. Everything is perfect. I'm going to check our Tuesday morning for letter "B" plates tomorrow, if they got them in I bet their gone, but it's worth a shot. Glad you posted this, I love everything! Kristen

Happy Easter sweet friend. I love your table and that fabric like mine. What a deal you got on the dishes and all the matching accents are fantastic. I love the whole look with the bell dome in the center too. Mine is very similar that I used for the cookie party. Your home always looks like it should be in a magazine. Love, love your decor so much.

Thanks for stopping by my giveaway.
Good Luck and have a special Easter with your family.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

What a gorgeous table, Ro! I saw the initialed tableware in Tuesday's ad but sadly, our store has closed and move much further away. I miss it! You did a beautiful job - love the black and white.
