I did find an aqua Ball canning jar for a quarter, AND these awesome placements, 4 for $1. Paired with a black tablecloth, a turquoise vase from Dollar General, flowers from Hobby Lobby for 67¢ a stem, and black plates picked up from Goodwill a couple years ago, I think it makes a very modern looking tablescape:
I forgot to take photos with the empty plates on the placements ... bad blogger! On second thought, it's good for you to see food on the plate - you might want my recipe for Pressure Cooker Riblets.
I'm linking this up with Rhoda's Thrifty Treasures at her blog, Southern Hospitality. Go see what other thrifters have found!
