Lilly Pulitzer End of Summer Tablescape


I could not let Summer end without displaying my Lilly Pulitzer for Target collection. I love everything Lilly and was so happy to score the Lilly Pulitzer for Target salad plates online on "Pink Sunday".   The Target website had it's first ever meltdown that night or I would have purchased many more items.   After about 2 hours sleep I crawled out of bed to head to my local Target and stand in line for the store opening.   When I arrived at 0630 AM I was 20th in line.   As I waited for the store to open the line grew to over 200 people and I was happy I made the choice to get there early.   I knew it would be a madhouse once they unlocked the doors at 0800 AM.   Thankfully the store manager provided a floor diagram with the location of the LFT items.  My main goal was the napkins to match the plates I had already purchased online.   When the door opened I ran to the home department along with several other Lilly lovers.  A lady started grabbing everything and throwing it in her cart.  I grabbed for a set of napkins and she grabbed at the same time.   She didn't want to share but, she finally gave in as the store only had two sets.   I'm sure everything she put in her cart was on eBay before noon.   I also picked up a few clothing items and the beautiful Nosie Posey clutch.    Over the next few weeks I checked all the Target stores in my area to pick up returned items and found everything but the glasses and coffee mugs.   I finally found the glasses on eBay at a very reasonable price, but no mugs yet.   They will come in time.  If you love Lilly Pulitzer I'm sure you will enjoy the table.

Flamingos and elephants are signature Lilly Pulitzer.  When I found the palm tree fabric with a light pink background I knew it would be perfect for the charger plate covers for this table.  

Lilly for Target cocktail glasses are perfect for a nice margarita, but can be used for other chilled drinks.  I decided to use the LFT porcelain dessert plates as coasters under the cocktail glasses.

I love the Flamingo Salt & Pepper.   I found these at Cracker Barrel Country Store in May.   

More flamingos and elephants.

I found the little Dept 56 flamingos last summer at Salem Creek in Winston-Salem. 


The elephant salt and pepper shakers were found at World Market this season. 

I fell in love with this little teapot when I spotted it at Home Goods a few months ago.  I knew it would be perfect for my Lilly Pulitzer table.

  1. What a fun, happy table! You're lucky to have gotten at least a few of the LP for Target items when they went on sale. Will have to check ebay from time to time, although I really hate to support the people who grabbed things up to resell. I do love your table, though, especially all the flamingo things. Great job!

    1. Thank you Joy. I was lucky to be online before the crash and order the plates as they were not sold in the store. I also ordered a blouse online that night before it crashed. Most of the other home items were only sold in the store so it was a challenge getting those items. The napkins are still going for over $100.00 on resale sights. I was so lucky to find the glasses at the same price they sold on the introduction date. One of these days I will find the coffee mugs at good price. I love the entire collection.

  2. Oh, I am a flamingo lover, too, so this is great! I didn't pick up any of the Lilly Pulitzer items, but I did host a fun flamingo party with a tablescape this summer! I will be stopping by again to check out your tablescapes! I host a link party on Monday evenings, Celebrate Your Story! I hope you stop by and share some of your great tablescapes!

  8. Happy Pink Saturday, Catherine. I am so glad you joined us, and I hope you will be back every week for Pink Saturday.

    This post is being featured on my Pink Saturday post this week as "the one that caught my eye". After all, who can resist Lilly and all those pink flamingos.♥

    I see you you are now living in south Florida, and that you are from welcome. I was born in North Carolina, but we left when I was two years old. I lived most of my life in southern Florida, mainly Fort Lauderdale. I grew up in a Lilly world filled with flamingos and all things pretty.

    I do believe one of my cousin's husband might be from Welcome. I'll have to ask her, but it sure is "ringing a bell".

  9. Hi Beverly, Thank you for the feature. I'm new at blogging and learning more and more with each post. It's a very small world. We live very close to each other and I work at KFLL. You'll have to check on the Welcome connection. I moved from Lexington to Deerfield in 1999 so I feel like a real Floridian now. Thank you again for the feature and I will be sure to check in tomorrow and post my Lighthouse Point table.

  11. I'm not a fan of Lily P., but I LOVE that flamingo centerpiece. I am assuming it's one of those lawn ornaments put in a vase and surrounded by pink peonies? It's very creative. I love it!

    1. Thank you Amy and you are correct about the flamingo. It was intended for yard use, but never made it outdoors. I've used it several times in tablescape arrangements and a flamingo wreath. Living in South Florida it makes it's way out of storage often.
