My First Posted Tablescape

My middle son was off work yesterday, so he dropped by our house for lunch and then he and his dad hung out for awhile in town.
I made a simple, but very tasty meal of meatloaf, mashed potatoes, broccoli  and my hubby's favorite side dish, yellow hominy.
The pictures are not the best since I just grabbed my phone to take some quick shots before the guys sat down to eat.
This tablescape photo shoot actually includes food on the table. (I had forgotten the napkins until after the pictures were taken but used yellow ones to go with the color scheme)

Got the awesome vase at Marshalls. The elephants from Ross and the candle holders from Hobby Lobby.
Those awesome white serving bowls came from Ross.

Love my fun elephant plates that I picked up at Ross the other day. They had only 4 of these and one larger dinner plate, which I am using as a serving plater for this meal. The black chargers were bought on our travels and I can't remember where I got them. The silverware came from Target. Love the shape of the spoons.

Ha! The meat loaf on the larger dinner plate/platter!

The table as a whole.

A little closer view of the plates.
