Y'all must know, by now, how I feel about the color pink! In case you missed it, pink is my least favorite color. Well, a few weeks ago I found pink dishes at the Goodwill I frequently haunt. A little voice kept whispering "buy me, buy me" and before I could turn and run away, they were in my cart. Actually, I really like them, they are a pretty shade of pink. They are Sasaki (fine china) 'Regency Pink' 1986. There were only 2 each, dinner, salad, soup, cup and saucer, all for just under $5.
My daughter brought me the tulips knowing how much I like the yellow ones...she said she almost bought pink or lavender ones but felt yellow would be a safer color. When I told her I was doing a pink table for this week's post she couldn't believe it. I told her the yellow looks great with all the pink.
Salad plate. Today I have chosen not to use the salad plate that is part of the set. I am using plates with my favorite flowers, hydrangeas. These were a gift from my sister, Jerry; Noritake ColorWave Gray.
Rimmed soup bowl.
Cup and saucer.
Flatware, Oneida 'Afterglow' 1956. The pink napkins and tablecloth were from Savers; $1.99 for 4 napkins and $2.99 for the tablecloth.
The water glasses are Noritake Sweet Swirl, lavender and the wine stems are pale pink that I picked up at Savers for 99¢ each quite some time ago.
The vase was found this past weekend at a yard sale. It is a Brush-McCoy 7¼ inch pale aqua made about 1940. The cost was a dollar.
The table with the candles lit...my inexpensive camera seems to distort the pictures with lit candles...maybe I should try a different setting.
***Update! My friend, Kathleen, wanted to know about the pink pedestal cake stand...it was $2.99 at HomeGoods, a few years ago.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog...it is very much appreciated.
