Valentine's Day is almost upon us...this year I went with purple transferware, white and touches of pink.
I started with pink placemats then layers of dishes. The charger is an overly large dinner plate by Laurie Gates Tribeca Platinum topped with Royal Staffordshire Tonquin by Clarice Cliff dinner plate, an unmarked creamy white salad plate and finally the CCT soup bowl, which is very shallow, so it can be used as a salad plate, too. I added a whimsical little flower shaped plate for a roll.
I love the border of this creamy white plate, it has a bird and what looks like reeds and flowers.
The napkins are a bright pink gathered with a simple silver napkin ring.
The glassware consists of an amethyst water glass and a pale pink wine stem.
The flatware is Oneida Louisiana, which has become a favorite in the house.
I am not a lover of roses so I was looking for either alstroemeria or tulips in pinks or purples...I ended up with a bunch of tulips...which I love...maybe white would have been better...the vase is pale amethyst in color, though it looks like plain old glass.
I used purple candles on my mercury glass candle holders to round out the centerpiece.
Thanks for taking the time to visit today, it is really appreciated.
I will be joining a few parties this week, please follow me around...you never know who you will meet or what you will see!
