Short and Sweet

Strawberry shortcake..that girl is sooo sweet just like her name, Strawberry shortcake! Can you tell I have a young daughter? We sang that song while putting this weeks tablescape together.

That is my daughter, NOT getting in the picture.

This is the inspiration for the table.
I found it at a thrift store over the weekend. I buy Christmas stuff whenever I find it and just store it away till the end of the year. It's fun because I like opening my bins and finding stuff I forgot I bought. My DH doesn't think it's NORMAL. But anyways cute place mat right?I was thrilled it was reversible. So I thought hmm it kinda reminds me of Vintage Strawberry Shortcake. So before I stored it away I thought I could try and pull off a tablescape with random things around the house. Granted my house has LOTS of random things, but this is how it went.First, a bowl. It has a cute little Turkey painted on the inside. It is actually not mine. My sister in law left it over Thanks giving last year (Yes Molly I have your turkey bowl hostage...I don't think you really read my blog like you say you do, but if you did...)
and I added a grass mat

and a cute little watering can with some flowers,
a matching bow and Shortcake herself.

Brilliant right?! Well not really I suppose...but my daughter does seems to think so.

No turkey bowl was hurt during this segment.

My 4 year old niece wants a Strawberry Shortcake party in August when she turns 5! I love strawberry shortcake. :)

Where did you get the grass mat? I've been looking and I did find some at a Prom decorating place...maybe Stumps, can't remember. But they were tissue. Is yours tissue?
