TABLESCAPE THURSDAY: PINK FLOWERS

It's Thursday and I am joining Susan from Between Naps On The Porch and many other friends for Tablescape Thursday. Visit Susan's blog to see a list of the participants. I'm off to visit them all in a bit and I hope you do too.
The roses that I received from The Husband on Valentine's Day are really opening up and I so wanted to use them in one of my rare times participating in this event. And coincidentally, I had 4 dessert/appetizer plates that I recently found at Marshall's. The flowers take center stage.

I am using cut work place mats with raised floral stitching in an ivory color. The napkins are matching. They came from a local shop called Mona Lisa. The dinner plates are from HomeGoods.
The silver plate flatware is the same that I have always used, none of it matches, so it always looks different! The wine glasses are vintage reproductions from Napa Style.

This is one of my favorite pieces, a sugar scuttle that I ordered from a website called The Lazy Peacock. If you get the chance, you have to visit this blog and Etsy shop...beautiful things. Below is a picture of the scoop which I rested on the handle so you can see it better...
Mmmm... I am dreaming of a stack of home style pancakes with a scoop of powdered sugar, some blueberries and whipped cream!
This condiment dish is also from The Lazy Peacock. Isn't the spoon darling?
So this is my tablescape this week. I thank you for visiting and hope you are having a wonderful day!
Oops, it looks like Milo popped in for dinner. He's looking a bit embarrassed as he always does when I have the camera out. I hope he likes my table setting!! ;-)

Oh Jane Sweetie...
So cute. I think Milo wanted a little sugar for himself to heck with the camera.

I love the silver and the place settings, so beautiful and those roses, I can just smell them. They smell so fragrant, and are just the softest pink of all.

Beautiful sweetie...Just beautiful. I thank you for sharing with me. Country hugs and so much love, Sherry

First of all your roses are just gorgeous! I love your setting and everything looks absolutely beautiful! Your plates from Marshall are lovely and I just love Napa Style, I'll have to check out those wine glasses.

The Lazy Peacock has such lovely things, I could go absolutely nuts and drain my bank account there. I seriously love everything!

Milo is so cute!

Hugs,
Karyn

Lori E said...

Ha, ha, Milo is sweet. What is it with dogs looking embarrassed in front of the camera? I mean they clean themselves right in front of us.
Your roses are glorious. How pink and perfectly romantic.
The plates pull it all together. Looks great.

Phyllis AROUND THE HOUSE said...

Hi Jane, well you should do tablescape more often, your table is just beautiful, love the pink flower salad plates with your lovely dinner plates, everything is lovely and I liked seeing the doggie, so cute....Phyllis

xinex said...

Your tablescape is very pretty and romantic, Janie. The centerpiece is perfect with the salad plates. I love the silver scuttle you bought. I have similar ones but mine are salt cellars so they are small. As for my menu on the exotic safari tablescape, we had Caesar salad, broiled salmon, pork adobo and chop suey, flan for dessert. I can't remember what else but our guest said we had enough for 8 people, lol...Christine

Kathy said...

Your roses are such a delicate shade of pink...Delicious!
Love the plates too...happy scaping,
xoxo~Kathy @ Sweet Up-North Mornings...

AshTreeCottage said...

Your tablescape is lovely. That sugar scuttle is just the best. So pretty. I have a condiment bowl and spoon just like yours. It was my Grandmother's. Your pink roses are so sweet and compliment your settings. Milo has perfect timing. Does he always join you for dinner? Bentley does. Well he waits patiently hoping that something will be saved for him. Great job Blondie!

Love,
Susan and Bentley

Hi Janie,
Your flowers are wonderful as well as your table. I love your photos too with the light coming in. I was trying to get a photography lesson last night but I think I failed... Your silver pieces and dishes are such a nice match with your lovely flowers. What time do we eat those delicious pancakes with powdered sugar and blueberries? I'm sure I can work it into my schedule!!!

Susie from Bienvenue said...

Is the table still set? I'll be right over for those pancakes - or even a peanut butter sandwich would do in that setting.
Gorgeous!

Any suggestions?

Gorgeous table. Really beautiful, from the smaller chintz plates to the silver touches -- and those roses are spectacular. I love roses.

I first wanted to say thank you for all your lovely comments and support on my blog. It means the world to me when I find such lovely people as yourself, and the fact that you actually take the time to comment on my posts means the world to me.

Your tabletop looks divine, I love all the pink! I am really loving that table though. So rustic, and yet with all those pretty things sitting atop it, it just looks down right refined! I would love to attend a dinner here :)

Lorrie said...

This is such an appealing tablescape Jane. The table itself reminds me of those at the Tavern in the village of Old Salem, Winston-Salem, NC. So, it was easy for me to imagine myself there enjoying a delicious lunch--perfect rainy day distraction for me.
