How about a simple, festive, plastic and paper tablescape? I enjoy doing all the pretties for a tablescape but I do like the ease of simple too! Especially when we can eat off of it and toss it in the garbage!  Decided to do something festive and easy. 

Decided to make my centerpiece first and then pull colors from that. 

 The lilies came from Walmart and the rest was from the Dollar tree including the fruit I used. Found the cute planter at Dollar General. Less that $10 bucks for it all. 

 Apple, Orange and Lemon went into the centerpiece. 

Had this sweet little book that was given to me in 1998 when I participated in Secret Sisters at church. Brought back lots of memories and decided it would be perfect for my festive look.

Then I needed to add a couple of candles to match. Found these at Walmart for $1 each.

The colorful table runner was a piece of material I had.

Ooh, love my little bowls. $1 each from the Dollar Tree.  Goes right along with my colors. The wooden stand the bowls are sitting on was odds and ends that a friend of mine had sitting around and made me 4 little stands. Works great to hold hot pots too! Or to give something a little extra height.

Then I found the paper goods. The orange plates are plastic and was 4 for $1 at Walmart. Found the yellow and green paper plates, green plastic silverware and napkins at Walmart cheap.

Green cups: 4 for $1 at Walmart

I love my little wooden stands. Perfect to hold things. Had an old Cambells Soup Cook book that was orange that a friend gave to me long ago. I have a set of toothpick holders in which the tops are pink, green and yellow. Decided to use the green top one. The candle piece, lemons/limes and birdie cup just made it. 

Lots of festive color, plastic, paper and cheap!

Hope you have enjoyed my fun and festive tablescape today. Come on over and we'll have a little Fiesta Salad and some Raspberry Tea!

Hugs and blessings, Cindy
