I had a little bit of spare time yesterday so decided to put together a table for Valentine's Day. Even though Valentine's is usually red I had picked up this pretty bunch of pink roses from the supermarket on Saturday for $5 so pink it was going to be!! I had been cleaning the windows in the sunroom so thought the table might look nice in front of the window between the chairs. Please ignore the dry garden you can see in the background but that's what happens when there is no water to spare!! So happy it rained last week!
I once again was drawn to add green to my pink table. These little boxes hold chocolates - just right for Valentine's Day!
A small candle in a little urn takes centre stage - the table is small so there was no room for a large centrepiece.
I had bought these gorgeous napkin rings at Freedom (a homeware store here in Australia) while I was on holidays. They have a really big ring on them so I had to use a pink napkin inside the white one.
I used these cute depression glass bowls to serve the fruit in. These salad plates are from my large selection of pink floral china. I have two of this particular pattern.
Pink roses are my favourite. They have a few little 'imperfections' on their petals but hey don't we all???
A pretty pink box for this place setting. These boxes were favours from a wedding quite a few years ago and I just can't bring myself to throw them out.
This is my favourite pink bubbly!!! I love it!!! I tried using some of my old silver items without cleaning them and I'm not sure if that's the way I can go - I do love nice sparkling silverware!
A bird's eye view!! I used a couple of pieces of pale pink chiffon as tablecloths. I love the softness of the chiffon.
I seem to have a bit of reflection here on these plates but hopefully that will soon be a thing of the past as today I enrolled in a digital phoptgraphy course! I can't wait. LOL
I painted these old porch chairs a couple of years ago. I bought them from a secondhand store a long time ago when we enclosed our back porch. I was thinking about them the other day and realised the cushions have had five different coloured covers over the years. Talk about recycling!! PS And I have made them all myself!
We have had a terrible couple of weeks in Australia - first floods then last week a cyclone all in the eastern states and yesterday here in Western Australia a terrible bushfire which has burnt 64 homes to the ground. I don't know how anyone could get over that dreadful trauma. My heart goes out to them.
