Painting the Garden Pink!

I usually like to do my tablescapes on Mondays or Tuesdays. But, we have had some crazy wind, and today was the first opportunity to put something together without the worry of it blowing away! The color this week is pink!

I hope you enjoy!

The lighting changes, because I took some
photos in the morning and some in the afternoon.

St. Francis has a way of making everything seem serene.

Of course, I had to mix things up, using a striped plate with a floral one. I think the addition of striped napkins makes it okay. Besides, there are no rules, right?

These napkins were once a valance!

Thank you so much for visiting!

Tablecloths, flatware, and napkin rings have been mine for years
Floral, striped, and white plates, pink glasses, glass bird,
carafe, and napkins are from Goodwill
Candle holders are from Partylite
Crystal glasses are from Ross
Pink bowls are from Tuesday Morning

So sweet! I am tempted to set a table outside if the wind would ever stop blowing! I have the same pink stems from the same glass boutique, Goodwill, lol! I love your St. Francis statue. Your flowers fooled me! I thought they were real! Another beautiful table :-)

Hi Elaine!

The striped plates go beautifully with the floral plates. I just love pink! I can't believe you got all those lovey dishes and glasses at the GW. I need to go to a more 'upscale" Goodwill, lol!

Thanks for sharing at my party this week.

I love stripes and florals together and this pink reminds me of ice cream like we used to get (minus the chocolate stripe!). I think we do have the same pink wineglasses. Both from GW but thousands of miles apart!

I just can't imagine someone giving those up to Goodwill!!! What a great find! And the pink stemware, too??? This is just crazy!!! I am a pink lover from WAY back, and this table is aces!!!
