Wonderful pink flowers

This week I received this beautiful flower arrangement - it was from my son's girlfriend. After much encouragement from us (mainly our son!) she had passed her driver's licence. She is 25 but as she lived in the city had no real need to drive - something us country people can't understand as we are really grounded if we don't drive.

Once she had passed her test we lent her our old car (the car I drive to work) as she was saving to buy her own. That day has come after 6 months of saving so in appreciation she sent me these flowers and Mr FH  received chocolates and nuts.

As you can see she knows me well when she ordered pink flowers!! They were just too pretty! I decided this week's table needed to include the flowers so the obvious choice would be a 'shabby' inspired table.

White and silver with a touch of pink - so gorgeous. As you can see I have used simple salt and pepper shakers (you can read the funny story about them here) and plain glassware.


Simple candlesticks and white candles are classic.

I raided my supply of pink floral plates and added one as a salad plate.

Aren't those beautiful dark green leaves so pretty against all the other soft colours.

My Old Country Roses china bowls from my collection (have a look at that here) finished off the table nicely.
