I'm calling this week's tablescape La Vie en Rose (Life through Rose-Colored Glasses). I am not normally a pink person, but the color is definitely growing on me...as you can see!
This is actually my Easter tablescape, so I wanted it to have a Spring feel. We had a small family gathering that evening and, after a long day of 10,000 egg hunts and chocolate bunnies, I was bunnied and egged out, so they were banned from the table!
Instead, I tried to keep it as simple as possible, using only pink, white and gold as the colors.
I might add that they brought with them two new Hollywood friends, Humphrey and Lauren, who were the guests of honor at the opposite end of the table. Or is that Pierre and Marie at the opposite end? Hmmm...hard to tell. Baby Kitty is absent this evening...too many birds!!
I am using my "gold" flatware from Target. My son-in-law asked me if he could take it to the gold exchange and trade it in for cash. lol The plates are from the clearance aisle at TJ Maxx and so are the chargers.
Here's a close-up of the plates. I love the ruffles and bows around the rim!
And.....once again, I'm using my pink depression glass as serving pieces. I even found little individual fruit dishes for each place! I like having a creamer and two sugars...one for my Splenda!
I have shown you my lemon server before, but not without lemons on it. I love the delicate little etched pattern! Can you see it?
I found these at a local flea market...Franciscan Cabaret iced tea goblets....four for $15!! I grabbed them and ran because the booth next door had the smaller wine glasses for $12 each! I was afraid that my lady would see that and bump up her prices!!
I used my bargain pitcher from the clearance aisle at Marshall's filled with hydrangeas as the centerpiece. I love the handle!!
So there you have it...La Vie en Rose! Hey...I think I'm starting to like seeing things through my rose-colored glasses! I hope you enjoyed it! Please be sure to drop by Susan's to continue your tour de tablescapes! And I'll see you next time!
