A Pink Confection Or Pink Concoction!


I had a hard time getting psyched to do a Valentine table. I waffled back and forth between red/white, pink/white and red/pink...as you can see, pink/white won out.

There will be very little dialogue with this post...what is there to say...it's PINK! Confection or concoction?












Thanks for stopping by today, hope you will return next time. An extra thanks to all who leave a comment!

I will be joining
Foodie Friday/Rattlebridge Farm
Table It/Rustic & Refined






This was added at night with candles lit and after I put the tulips on the table!

Ooh, Marigene, I LIKE those pink & white dishes! Haven't ever seen majolica done in that color. Nice!

Wish you could hear my mother tell us over and over how much she loves pink. I admit I like it too and once again another beautiful tablescape. bbb

Gorgeous pink tablescape! I love everything about it. I went for a pink Valentine's last week and now I'm with the reds for hubby and me.
Your dishes are beautiful and so perfect!
Happy Valentine's weekend ahead.

Oh a pink confection for sure - it looks like cotton candy - so sweet and charming. I love all the different dishes you used - and pink is perfect for Valentine's Day. I'm so glad you decided to do a post, I would have missed it if you didn't.

This is darling, Mari...perfect for any day in February actually when we love to see pinks and reds. The layering of those pretty dishes is really creative..but I wouldn't expect anything less from you. Where on earth do you keep all this stuff?!!!! :)

I Love the pink, so sweet, so it must be a confection! The romantic evening look on the table with the tulips and roses with the candles lit is just beautiful. The pink and white layers of the cabbage plates, the pretty striped napkin rings and the pink napkins layered with crocheted lace trim napkins are lovely, perfect for a romantic Valentine's day table.

Ooh Marigene, the pink majolica is so pretty. I love your chippy candlesticks and especially in the last pic with the soft glow of candles. Happy Valentine's Day!

You have some mighty pretty things put together here! I love all the pink.

Jacqueline said...

A pink confection is right! Wow, those bowls are fabulous. I have a few tiny ones in the cabbage pattern. I had to laugh that you said that pink has gone way up in your estimation this year - you wouldn't know it from this pink-fabulous table!

Hope you had a lovely Valentine's Day!

Oh Marigene, Pretty in Pink! Do you have cabbage leaf plates in every color? love all the shades of pinks and red you've used! I'm a little sad that Valentines fun is over for the year, such a fun holiday!

Kim Hood said...

I love your pink table decor. Since I have very few pink dishes, I thoroughly enjoyed your "concoction". We have few occasions for pink tablescapes, so I'm glad you went for it when you had the opportunity. Your plate stack is gorgeous! :-)
