Tablescape Thursday.....

Wow, my new book was just so lovely - just looking at the wonderful old collectables makes my heart miss a beat. For my table this week I have included some old china - depressionware and lovely old rose covered plates.  The starting point for my table was this cute table runner I purchased while away on my holiday. It was in a little garden centre (the only one left AND my colours!!) and it caught my attention.


The runner is 6m long and 33cm wide and made of the finest tissue paper which you just cut to your required length - what a great idea don't you think??
I started gathering up lots of bits and pieces to match the colours of the runner -  thought I might even cut smaller pieces at some stage and use for placemats.



    

Once again I used my lovely white tablecloth - I have had this for years but I wouldn't call it vintage yet!














I really love these silk roses - they actually belong in my sunroom - it is so amazing just what you can pick up from room to room to get the table to come together.



I'm joining Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for her Tablescape Thursday - I can't wait to see this weeks creations.

Stunning. I love the colors and all of the pieces of china and glassware are just outstanding, but the thing that caught my eye the most is that wonderful cakestand. It is just breathtaking. Love it. Hugs, Marty

I came by b/c you linked with Brambleberry Cottage - pretty in pink. Love your background and header. I have yet to think about joining a tablescape - just have so many things to do to get there ... but I'm thinking about it. I've done Pink Saturday and now Brambleberry's 14 Days of Love - it's a lot of fun! I may just have to figure a tablescape too one of these days! Enjoyed your pink tablescape post. Thanks, Jenn

Hi, Suzy! Welcome to the party! Seeing your dishes was a treat for a dish-a-holic like me. ;)

I would love to have you continue to join the fun daily at the cottage. You can actually go back and link to the previous two days as well...as long as it's with a different post.

Blessings,
Liz

P.S. Would you mind displaying the party button in your side bar? I'm afraid I had some issues with it, but the instructions are here:

This is a sweet and lovely table setting. I am especially linking the green depression glass pitchers and the mix of vintage and new.

You have a very nice blog I'm glad I stopped by and met you. I just adore the plates with the bunch of flowers with the big pink rose. I'm a follower now so I don't miss a thing.

Pretty Pink inspired table! The runner is a clever idea and works beautifully with all your different china patterns. Clever idea to show the choices in the dish drainer. Thanks for sharing . . .

What a beautiful and romantic table you've set -- how clever is that runner and you've used it so well. Love your dishes.
