I'm In The Pink!

It is that time of week when we dress our table for Tablescape Thursday with Susan of Between Naps On The Porch. Thank you for hosting, Susan. Please make sure you check out all the tables that are on display this week...promise you won't be sorry.

The inspiration for my table this week came by way of a gift from my sister, Judy. She has been waiting for me to do a black, white and pink table...unfortunately, I don't have much in the line of pink, other than linens and stemware. Judy bought me pink, white and black soup bowls. Both of my sisters seem to enjoy supporting my dish addiction by adding to my growing collection.

You can enlarge any photo by clicking onto it. I think if you click onto the enlarged one again it will really magnify the photo!

No mindless prattle, just photos...that's why you are here, right?




this week, just photos.

How my mother would love this with all the pink. She tells us all over and over how pink is her favorite color. But no-one can do such a fantastic job with pink as you do! bbb

Beautiful table, Marigene! You have such nice generous sisters :) I really like the pinks, very pretty!

Marsha said...

Marigene - I LOVE this color combination - so very feminine looking as well as elegant & romantic! The bowls are beautiful - you have wonderful sisters.

I never knew I liked the black/white and another color combos until I started following your blog! I have purchased the black & whites and experimented with B/W/Red but Pink definitely going to be tried soon.

I love pink and black together and have never seen it on a plate like that. How pretty is that? Your glassware is perfect with it, delicate and lovely. Perfect in pink!

Hi Marigene! This scape is gorgeous! I love white, pink and black together. I, like you, don't have hardly anything pink, but have been wanting to build on that. These plates are perfect!

As you know I'm a pink gal, so is my mom and so is my duagther Talya.

Rettabug said...

Pink & Black...so classic together! I'm loving your water stems...would love to find something similar, as I don't have ANY stemware to go with my pink depression plates. I have cups to match the pink & actually found 2 recently at GW for $1 each!!!!! Crazy folks didn't know what they had & just gave them away.

Thank you for your sweet comments on the Talavera but I must explain that I don't own it. It belongs to my deceased friend whose beautiful home we get to stay in during the winter. She LOVED bright colors!

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

So pretty! How nice of your family to help support your hobby!
xo, Andrea

Tanya@takesix said...

Pink and black are so stunning together. Your table is beautiful! I just found some silver chargers at a thrift store, and I am about to change them to black ones with a trust can of spray paint!! ;0)

Phyllis said...

One of my most favorite designers, Carlton Varney, always recommends a touch of black in every room to help anchor the room, or in this case, the table. The black napkins are stunning with your pastel setting!

Love the pink and black and white. so elegant. Must try it some time.Very pretty.

Dianne said...

What a beautiful color combination. I really like the pink glassware too.

lulumusing said...

Aren't you lucky to have sisters who add to your growing collection of tableware? I like the way you met their challenge. By the way, I thought of you on my recent Tuscany adventure and mentioned that in my post.

How beautiful this is together! I LOVE the pink glass!

Denise at Forest Manor said...

Hi Marigene,

This table is gorgeous! I really love the soup bowls -- they are so elegant. I forget how pretty pink, black and white are together. I also love your etched pink stemware and your pretty flatware. Nice pictures of the blue hour. Thanks for visiting my blog and for your kind comments. Have a great weekend.
