Table Setting Inspiration & my 'pieces'

I have been following these 2 blogs {This Young House & Bower Power} by these wonderful, funny, amusing, fun girls. They started off as bloggy friends and eventually turned their love for fabulous deals, good humor, and conscious living into a beautiful friendship. They came together at Bower Power's house and made this humorous video, that inspired me to come up with a beautiful table setting. With a few pieces I picked up from my antique shopping trip, here is what I came up with. I had to go with the 4 people table setting because we do have a family to place at the table, but they had some wonderful ideas and I can't wait to try out some other ones.

Here's the crystal vase I picked up.

I planted a few plants in my finds and placed them around the house. Kitchen plant:

I also forgot to post a picture of these 4 old books I picked up for $2. This is the milk white planter I got for $2 as well:

See accessorising your house doesn't have to be expensive, you just have to use your imagination.

It looks so great Brandy! Thanks so much for the sweet shout out. You scored some lovely little finds (without breaking the bank) and we adore the chic table setting and all the little planters, books and other finishing touches that you've brought home as well. Fab, fab, fab.
