All Dressed In Lavender and Pink!
I can't believe August is already upon us, where, oh, where has the time gone. It is, also, time for another Tablescape Thursday with Susan of Between Naps On The Porch. Thank you for hosting this fun weekly meme...without a doubt, I would have no blog were it not for TT.

I have had this piece of material for some months, not knowing what to do with it. Well, when I found the lavender dinner plates, I just knew they would be a perfect match...well, what do you think? I keep wondering where all the lavender dishes were when I started my quest several months ago. I couldn't find anything in violet, lavender, lilac, mauve or puce...you name it nothing in any shade of purple. Lately I found more than a few pieces in different shades of purple.
The flowers are Naked Ladies (Amaryllis belladona) from the yard. The are a beautiful pink with lavender tinged petal tips. Most of my flowers have been really stressed from the heat this summer, even the indestructible coneflowers, which thrive on the sides of the highways, here in Kansas.
The dinner plates, which are being used as charger plates, are a solid color, have no markings on the underside, no idea who made them or their age, am guessing they are fairly new. They go perfect with the plates I used here.
The dinner plates are a creamy white, also no markings on the underside.
The little pink and yellow flowered salad plates are from Vienna, Austria.
The dessert plate is a nice shade of lavender and are made by, are you ready for this...Pyrex! I had no idea they made anything in lavender.
The water glass is a dark pink, unknown maker and the wine stem is Noritake Sweet Swirl, lavender.
Overall of the table.
I had to, not only set the table once, but three times and dry the tablecloth/napkins before I got the photos taken...one of the kitties kept knocking the flowers over and chewing on them! Every time I turned my back AJ was up on the table after the flowers!
