A rosy dinner for a friend

Even though it is fall I still use my pink china and love to find pink roses and peonies at Whole Foods or Fresh Market. My friend stopped for the night on her way to Florida and I wanted to make her a nice dinner and use my pretty things for her. 
I made the floral arrangement by placing strips of clear scotch tape across the container and inserting the flowers in the holes it made. that way it doesn't move around on you. I love to do the flowers.
It is fun to use my monogrammed trivet too. By the time we ate it was dark so I wanted a lot of votive candles on the table. A little bubbly and good friends--what could be better?
Joining in on Tablescape Thursday
Have a Pink day!


  1. Marie your table is perfection my friend, it's not only gorgeous it's also very welcoming what a lucky friend that got to sit at your beautiful dining room and enjoy!

    Big smiles~

  2. Hi lovely lady.
    I was so happy to see you on my Tablescape for the guys it's been a long time I have been missing you. I also love your gorgeous tablescape for your friend sweet. I hope you have a wonderful week with your family.

  3. I am sure that your friend was so impressed with your lovely table! Thank you for the tip about using scotch tape for the flowers. I have never seen that idea previously and I like that the tape is basically invisible compared to the green tape that I usually use!

  4. Your Minton "Cockatrice" is so pretty, I have a few pieces in the pattern. Also you dining chair are to die for. Enjoy the holidays.

  5. A beautiful picture you have created in Pink!
    I love your Pink Cockatrice plates too like Tea in Texas!
