Spring Pinks And Greens
Everything is such beautiful shades of green now that spring has sprung. When my brother, Bud, was young he said all the shades of green reminded him of a patchwork quilt made by Mother Nature. I have combined shades of green and pink to this tablescape.
A few years ago at Goodwill on the very bottom shelf were several pieces of Franciscan Desert Rose china. I scooped up enough for 4 5-place servings as there was another lady also looking. One of the bowls is a newer piece made in Portugal, the rest were made in California between 1971 and 1976.
The plate stack starts with the white wood chargers followed by a green cabbage leaf charger, Desert Rose dinner plate, a pink cabbage leaf salad plate and finally a Desert Rose bowl for dessert, which will be ice cream.
The glassware is Cris d'Arc/Luminarc. These are my favorite shape for wine...doesn't matter what kind it is, either!
I have used my favorite Oneida Louisiana flatware. It just seems to go with anything. The linen napkin is held with a green beaded napkin ring.
I kept the centerpiece simple, just a couple small plants with pink candle holders.
Thanks for visiting today...hope you will come back next time.
