The Find: Table Talk

While I find everything about this tabletop charming and cheerful, from the Pyrex bowls holding popcorn to the wildflowers in colored metal glasses, I especially love seeing the bean pot that my mom and dad got on their wedding day in 1962 nestled in the front corner. Photographed by Jim Franco for The Find: The Housing Works Book of Decorating With Thrift Shop Treasures, Flea Market Objects, and Vintage Details, this image is the creation of my Brooklyn pals Michael Quinn and Heather Kerr, two party throwers extraordinaire.

Even though this gathering took place in the autumn, the bright hues and the whimsical touches in this scenario are a perfect prelude to spring, bringing with it the much-anticipated garage sale season and picnic weather

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter
