June Birthday Tablescape

It's been a long time since my last post.....*sigh*....I've just been too busy for my own good!  But with my upcoming birthday, I've decided to set my table with June flowers and my favorite colors.

I do hope you'll join me at my rose covered table.

There's nothing new on my table.....I've just filled it with some of my old favorites.

A glance at my layers of dishes.

Since pink and green are my favorite colors.....I decided to add both colors with my stemware.

A few knockout roses from my tiny flower garden.
Overview of my tabletop rose garden.

I've decided to take time to smell the roses and slow down a little.

How about a look through the layers of dishes....starting with these pink rose dishes.

I love the hand painted look.  I found these on ebay a few years ago.... they were a Gibson pattern that I think was sold at Target at one time.

These soft pink glass dinner plates were also an ebay find from several years back.....see the roses etched into the glass?
These white dishes came from Big Lots.....actually they were a birthday present from a friend several years ago.

And my Pier One chargers that I loved at first sight.....As soon as I started seeing these on several tablescapes.....I was hooked!  One of the few things I've purchased not on sale.....but I've gotten my money's worth.

I found this tablecloth at a vintage shop and loved the pink and green combination.

Usually I have set the table with softer colors on this tablecloth, but today I wanted a brighter look and really liked how well this shade of green napkin blended in.  And I thought my pink bud napkin rings were a perfect match.
What could be more perfect.......

.....than pink roses in June?

I'm so glad you stopped by about joining me for a big old slice of hummingbird cake?  I just finished icing it.  I hope we can visit again soon.  I'm linking up with Cuisine Kathleen at Let's Dish and Susan at Between Naps on Porch  Can't wait to see what's on all the tables in blogland this week.

See ya!

  2. Welcome back, Martha. I have fallen out of Blogland, too -- it's been a busy spring/early summer. Your birthday table is gorgeous, and the roses are perfect with your pretty pink and green. I especially love that overhead shot!

  7. I've been wanting to make a hummingbird cake for two years now. LOL Happy Birthday Martha! I love your table setting, and must say that you chose wisely on the Pier One chargers. I have 12 of them and use them quite often.

  8. Your table is so pretty! I love the tablecloth, chargers & dishes. Happy Birthday and I would love a piece of hummingbird cake! I haven't made it in a long time. Thank you for reminding me!

  10. such a pretty table set with beautiful colors.
    you did well!

  11. Martha, it's beautiful. I love your vintage tablecloth, and what great ebay purchases. I always love seeing those Pier 1 chargers too, and I regret that I was too cheap to buy them. I keep thinking they might show up at an estate sale some day. The pink and green stems look so pretty with that table cloth. laurie
