Still Thinking Pink


Since pink has been on my brain this week, why not continue the thought on this week’s tablescape?

Mother’s china is the place to start.

Rather than placemats this week, the plates will be set on gold chargers that are a nice complement to the beautiful handwoven cloth from Morocco.

The chargers are a bit dressy and the Richlieu pattern is a little more girly than is usual for me, so the challenge is to add a few touches that make the table more relaxed.

Pink and green floral napkins are more casual, and tucked into these funky napkin rings they will be just the right touch.

In the center of the table are sassy tulips and poppies which are a bold contrast to the  pinks.

 

 

 

 

 

Here, as on most of my tables, the stemmed glassware doesn’t match.  I have always been drawn to etched stemware from the late 1800’s-mid 20th century and have a number of patterns from those eras.  For me, having things that don’t match add a bit of whimsy to even the most serious table.

Twilight is settling in, the table is ready, and now all we need is you to join us for dinner.

i love your comments, so jump right in and share your thoughts

  7. Beautiful and so elegant.

  8. Beautiful. And I agree, I don’t think everything has to be matchy matchy. I have a collection of china tea cups/dessert plates–all different, all gorgeous. I think they look great out on the table at the same time. Very festive.

  9. Okay, I’m in and seated at this gorgeous spread 😉
    Thanks for the invitation!

  10. Well let me say I love your mixtures. So pretty. Your mother’s china is lovely and I love how you’ve arranged your flowers — sort of looks like a spring garden on your table.
