Soft as a Lamb!

They say March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.




This March has been all lamb and no lion. So, this week I decided to create a soft tablescape...soft and pink and romantic.


I hope you enjoy this table set for two.









I made a few changes to this container of silk flowers--mostly painting it a light color so the detail shows up and adding some pearls.



All of the dishes, chargers, painted wine glasses, tablecloth, candlesticks, and centerpiece came from thrift stores.



Our mild weather has enticed many birds to our yard, which makes Eddie very happy.















I also painted the chargers (they were gold) a soft white.







Candlelight always adds romance.




















Thank you so much for visiting!

Absolutely gorgeous - and frugally purchased as well - wow, that is gorgeous.

I love you made the changes necessary (painting) to bring this together.

I especially love that tablecloth - love the color and the "pearl look" on it.

Those dishes are amazing - I cannot believe what people donate - I wouldn't let those go for the world!

Love it!

Those dishes are SO pretty! I like the "pearl" look to the whole table. Great thrift finds that made for a very romantic table.

What a beautiful, beautiful tablecloth! It looks so delicate and refined, as does the whole table. Kind of reminds me of a 1950s socialite! The pearl napkin rings work so well with it all, too! Great job on painting the chargers...they have a really fabulous finish! This is super pretty, and not just because I love pink and pearls!!! Have a great weekend! Good job!!!!!!!!
