    I love the bright colors you added to your patio this year. Would you share where you found the seahorse (lime green)?

    I love the charger plates but at $200 each I can’t afford that. It would be nice to
    have plates in a range of $20-$50. Thanks for allowing me to tell you my

    1. Hi Debbie,

      I hear you and I understand. I offer a broad range of ideas and price points on the blog. While I aim to inspire, some things are meant to be aspirational and others are more literal. But please also realize, for every person who wants popular priced items and designer looks for less, there are those who ask for the exact item I used no matter the cost. So I try to offer a little bit for everyone.

      My own personal method of decorating is to mix in more affordable pieces with one or two exceptional things that I don’t mind saving up for.

      So in the case of the gold rimmed chargers, they truly are special pieces and I’ve not seen anything with that look for $20 or even $50. However, here are a few gold trimmed chargers that are in you price range, if designed a bit simpler. (They are offered in sets, keeping the price lower.):


      Hope that helps… 🙂
