Last weekend while we were at the beach house I had been admiring the bunches of Lilliums for sale everywhere I went but when I went to buy myself a bunch to bring home to the farm house they had all been sold - I was really sad as I also wanted some for DNo 2 who had been having a few sleepless nights with her little 3 month old daughter so I had to settle for these pretty carnations. They are really lovely colours and seemed to fit right into my tablescape for this week - funny how that happens.
I had found these cute little plates for $1.85 each. I loved the spots around the edge and thought they would fit into my house really well!! The trouble was there was only three - so I am on the look out for some more.
I started my table with this pretty pink and green cloth from my collection I have for the gift shop displays which I thought had the colours of the dots on it. I used a green charger (I tried white but it seemed to disappear into the cloth) and topped the plate with a couple of pink and green florals then finished with some depression glass.
This gorgeous plate has some matching cups and was found in our old farm house (they were originally used by my in-laws). I would love to have a whole setting of this but I don't think that would ever happen as it is very old.
Mis-matched cups and saucers - my mum would have a fit!!! I think as long as the colours tone then it's ok!!
There's a tiny bit of sunshine coming through my back door to make this table sparkle.
You can see I have used my large dining table but have just set it for two. I started with a plain white cloth then added my fun check one to define the area I wanted. To make a bit of a barrier I placed a couple of my pretty scarves around the base of the jug holding the flowers - they were the perfect match.
The pink water bottle I had for the baby shower I had for DNo 2 earlier in the year - they just needed a couple of green tumblers to complete the look.
I am off to a ladies luncheon tomorrow - someone is going to win a diamond there - hope it's me!!
Have a lovely week,
