The last few tables have been really bright and lively...this week I have toned it down to just pink and white. The weather here has been overcast, then the sun will come out for a few minutes, then flee behind another bank of clouds...makes it hard to get good photos as the dining room only has north facing windows. I don't know enough how to adjust my camera for better pictures, which doesn't help!
I started with a solid pale pink cotton tablecloth...notice I even ironed it! I have very few pink napkins to choose from so I found some with a couple shades of pink to add a little interest.
The sterling flatware is Oneida Afterglow, circa 1956.
The glassware is pale pink, unknown maker.
The stack of plates began with a pink Bordallo Pinheiro chop/charger plate, that my sister, Judy found for the unbelievable price of $1 each at her local thrift store in Vermont. The next plate is a white Royal Stafforshire dinner plate, then another pink BP and finally a cute little white dessert plate with a raised pink tulip that Judy also found at her local thrift store. The backstamp says PAI made in China.
The candlesticks were originally brown and I painted them pink then distressed them...I didn't wash or stain them, as I like the way they came out.
The roses are from my yard...the pink ones I planned to use got pounded with rain the other day! Most of them are almost done blossoming until it is a little cooler weather, meaning fall! I just had to add one of the yellow ones with the pink undersides along with the pink ones. I have no idea the names of them, the two pink are climbers and the yellow is a bush type. I think the climbers are considered old fashioned? They came with the house, nothing I planted. All I know is the darker one has taken over a good portion of the back porch area...it keeps sprawling!
The last photo was taken with the soft focus setting...it came out so light compared to the regular setting I use, but seems a little fuzzy.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you will return the next time.
