As I was planning my "back from vacation" tablescape, I was thinking I would either do a very bright spring table or perhaps a blue and white table.....but somehow this week.....
....it turned into a soft sweet pink.
Please join me for "Sweet Pink".
It all started with these flowers I found at the grocery store Saturday. The pinks reminded me of the "sweet" pinks in life....baby feet....flower girls....puppy kisses.....kitten paws..... cotton candy....pink clouds at sunset.....white iced birthday cakes with soft pink roses made of icing so sweet it makes your teeth tingle!
So I set about my house searching for sweet pinks. These pink flowered butter pats were a last minute addition...so they aren't in every photo. I found these on several different thrifting explorations. They're all different.
This cut glass piece came from my in-laws estate and made a pretty vase.
I started out with this vintage tablecloth found a few years ago.
Soft pink napkins from Tuesday Morning earlier in the spring. Sheer napkins - e-bay store and vintage bow napkin rings.
Pink glasses from eBay last year.
A layering of dishes and Target flatware. Shall we "unpeel" the layers?
Salad plates were an eBay purchase a couple of years ago. I've still seen them there recently.
They're a Gibson pattern.
Soft pink glass plates were also found a couple of years ago on eBay - (I believe I was planning a ladies luncheon at the time)
A closer look at the rose design.
White Gibson dishes from Big Lots -- from the great Blogger dish rush a couple of years ago!
Soft green chargers found on a 75% sale at a Virginia Beach boutique a couple of years ago.
A few more table shots.
I hope your week is filled with the sweetness of soft pinks! Be sure to visit Susan at "Between Naps on the Porch" this week and enjoy the array of dishes and tablescape set just for you!
