Which is loveliest in a rose? Its coy beauty when it's budding, or its splendour when it blows?
The weather has been really nasty this morning with rain pouring down. Since it’s too yucky to get out and all my cleaning is finished (yeah!), I decided to play around with a very simple table setting for tonight’s dinner.
It’s been a while since I’ve actually set the table and we ate in the dining area. In fact, I think the last time was at Christmas! My youngest daughter told me yesterday that we really need to start eating together at the table…so this setting is for her. Dinner at the table tonight…she’ll be tickled, especially since we’ll be dining by candlelight (she loves that!).
Just a simple setting…I used a pink tablecloth layered with a white lace cloth. I added pink napkins with silver napkin rings.
To anchor each setting, I used a pink charger. The dinner and salad plates are one of my favorite sets. The pattern is “English Rose” featuring delicate pink and red roses on a sagey green background.
The footed glasses are “Heritage” by Fostoria.
The silverware belonged to my grandmother. I always loved this pattern when I was growing up.
For the centerpiece, I used a silver footed tray that I found a couple of weeks ago at the thrift store. A few glass marbles, two crystal votive candholders and one pink mosaic candleholder (another thrift store find!)…and I called it finished!
I’m joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
I always enjoy your visits, so thanks for stopping by!
