Hot Lady!

On my birthday, Mr. Wonderful came home with a dozen roses for me. It turned out, these particular roses are called Hot Lady. I thought they were appropriate for me because, well, I'm hot ninety percent of each day. But, I'm sure the name refers to the "hot" pink color. Anyway, these roses were the inspiration for my tablescape.

I hope you enjoy!

I bought these placemats for the reverse side which is black and white polka dot. Who knew I would use the pink side first!

I decided to mix contemporary dishes, stemware, and flatware, with traditional lead crystal candlesticks. I think the roses pull it all together.

Perfect setting for my glass bird.

The colors changed as the sun started to go down.

Ever have one rose that goes limp before the others? Don't throw it out--you can use the petals, like I did here! They should last through dinner before drying up.

Take away two place settings, and you have a romantic Valentine's Day dinner!

Stemware, white plates, glass bird, and candlesticks are from Goodwill
Napkins and black plates are from World Market
Flatware is from Burlington Coat Factory
White bowls are from Big Lots
