In The Pink!

Back on March 6, 2013, I did a lime and cocoa table on this same tablecloth. Now I am doing a pink and white table with the same tablecloth. Which one do you like the best?




The inspiration tablecloth and a pink poly napkin held with a raspberry napkin ring.





The pink plates are Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage leaves and the white plates are Royal Stafford. The cabbage charger plates were found in Vermont for $1 each by my sister, Judy a couple months ago...they have a really good thrift store in her little town. A couple years ago she found ten, 100 year old, Noritake cream soup bowls/underplates for $2 per set. The Royal Stafford dinner plates were bought at Goodwill for 99¢ per plate.



I have no idea who the maker of the pale pink wine stem is. I couldn't get a good photo, sorry.



The flatware is Oneida Afterglow.


The centerpiece is a compote with faux white roses and white candlesticks.



The rim shot.









So...which version is your favorite...the green or is it the pink?

Thanks for taking the time to visit today...please come back soon!

Oh my goodness, Marigene! They are both gorgeous! That tablecloth is so pretty! I think even plain white would look fabulous with that background! :-) As always, I love seeing your RC tureen in the background!...hugs...Debbie

I just had to pick myself up off the floor when I saw the great deals. Never here. I can't pick a favorite. I love them both!

Hi Marigene. I love them both, but the pink is my favorite. The tablecloth is so pretty and looks great with the walls in your dining room. You find the best deals, and your sister, too!!

I have to say Marigene that this is my favorite, but with that said, I think you could put those fabulous pink cabbage plates on dirt and I would be in love!!

I think I like the pink best, it really pops on that dark cloth, but both tables are beautiful. I'm a sucker for cabbage, those plates are great! Great summer look!

a dollar for a charger.. oh wow!!! That has totally rendered me speechless. I really like this pink table. But I liked the green too. Not sure which is my favorite. I do like them both. The tablecloth lends itself to so many different settings. Can't wait to see your next one!! xo marlis

Oh, boy, you are asking the impossible. They are both beautiful, but today I think I lean toward this one. I am totally in love with those cabbage plates.

Monica @ Texas Fiesta Ware Fan said...

Well both tables are fabulous of course but this one is my favorite. So you and your sister are both expert thrifters!!! Do you find good stuff for her also??

Diane said...

Actually, I do not think it matters about the colors you use for the china - that tablecloth is definitely the star - wow!! I do love this pink table and I agree with the other comments - the bargains that you and your sister find are incredible!!

Jewel Sauls said...

Lovely table! Love how you have the pink with the dark tablecloth. Great deal on the chargers!!!

Mary said...

Your table is lovely Marigene, I have serious BP envy :) You and obviously your sister too, have the best luck thrifting! I have a hard time choosing my favorite, I love green! Have a great weekend!

Sarah said...

Margiene, I love the colors of this tablescape. What a wonderful find on the $1 chargers. This table is definitely an example of what beautiful things can be found when out thrifting. '-)

A very pretty tablescape!
