Tablescape Thursday

These paper dolls were my
Mother's when she was a little girl.
I was once part of a
birthday club
and every month we would
pick a theme and celebrate.
One month this cute little girl provided
inspiration with her wardrobe.
Each place setting--place mat & dishes--
coordinated with a different dress.

~this was what mine looked like~

Now your invited to pour a cup of tea,
wander over to Susan's and
peek through the window.

Enjoy all the TABLESCAPES

Your mother's paper dolls are a real treasure! I wish I had saved some of mine, I loved playing paper dolls! I have bought some in the past few years.

The tablescape idea using the paper dolls is darling. I used to be in a tea party club and we did a different theme every month! It was a lot of fun!
