One of my closest buddies, “G” did the sweetest thing for me recently. She helped me snag more Lilly Pulitzer items from the Lilly for Target collection. You may recall my recent post (here) about how pretty much everything was sold out by the time I reached my local store.
Almost a month after the collection has sold out, I get a call from my friend, “G” (sister from another mother) that the Target by her workplace had a small display of Lilly home items left.
I almost spit up my Lobster bisque in excitement! So glad I heard my cell ring during lunch!
Thanks to modern technology (aka: cellphone pic of goods on shelf), I asked G to help me buy the 3 items below:
1) Porcelain dessert plates with 18kt gold embossed rim – $25.00
2) Outdoor blanket with fringe trim – $30.00
3) Glass votive candle holders – $15.00
CREATING A TABLESCAPE USING LILLY FOR TARGET HOME ACCESSORIES
Seeing that the items I bought were perfect for a dinner party table setting, I decided to come up with my own “Lilly for Target Tablescape.”
Here is how I created a Simple & Pretty Tablescape:
1) I took some clippings from outdoor plants in our garden. So nice to have “greens” on the fly!
2) I placed the plant clippings into my votive holders. I love using votives as mini-vases. Since the dessert plates were so tiny, I used them as votive coasters. 😉
3) For a dose of “flower power” [It is Lilly Pulitzer, after all], I incorporated pink roses from our garden. They were FREE…Love it! Flowers just make everything look so much more beau-tee-ful!
By the way, I used my new outdoor blanket as a tablecloth. Ties in well with the “feminine” tablescape.
4) Next, I added plates, napkins, and cuttery to complete the look. Notice the colorful Lilly drinking glasses that I purchased a month ago? So glad they have buddies now! 😀
Now, I mentioned how sweet my friend “G” was in helping me get the additional Lilly Pulitzer items. Well, do you know what’s even sweeter than that? How about bringing a 51 pound Lilly for Target hammock stand to her car and driving it back home…only to find out it did not include the hammock!
Poor “G.” Okay, her husband was the one who had to bring it back to the store for a refund. But still… she went through the trouble…all for me…the girl who is a little floral obsessed.
I think it’s safe to say that the next time G and her family comes over, I’ll be recreating this Lilly Pulitzer tablescape. Dinner on me. I cannot wait!
Every time I look at these Lilly for Target items in my home, I will remember this sweet gesture made by a buddy who did more than help me add pretty accessories to my home. She reminds me how friends will extend themselves to make another friend “s–m–i–l–e.” 🙂

Such a sweet friend! I love having those friends that just know when to call you because they found something that is so you…and you did a great job at the tablescape! So beautiful and feminine.
This is gorgeous! So jealous that you managed to land some Lilly finds!

I love your tablescape. That pink tablecloth is gorgeous and those plates are stunning!
I love how you put the table together. And the accents add a classy touch. With pink being my favorite color it will be a win no matter what you put on it
Thanks, Angela. I have a thing for pink too. Good thing I have 2 girls because they are on my side. My hubby probably could do w/o all the pink :).
I would have been afraid to pick that pink tablecloth, but it looks amazing! Great job!
Thanks, Roxanne 🙂
Those little plates are the cutest! Its one of those things that I pass by in the store, but once I see someone use them I’ll love it! I really love those plates and I probably never would have used the votive holders like that, but super cute!
Thank you! You should try using votives as little vases one day :).
I want things a few things but we were on a road trip at the time so I didn’t get to stop.
This looks great! Love the idea of using votives as mini vases!
Sooo many heart eyes for this setup! Beautiful!:)
This looks so pretty! I love the little plates and the vases. This is such a fun and whimsical feel to the table.
Oh my gosh, it is all so pretty! Love the colors!
So pretty! I love the little gold accented trim on everything! Such a lovely setting.
Thanks so much, Debbie! The gold accents are among my favorites 🙂
