LET'S DISH #1

We are so lucky that there is a new party starting today for us dishaholics to share our love of all things table related...it's called  LET'S DISH and is hosted by the most talented Cuisine Kathleen!
I have been a bit under the weather so I am sharing a previously viewed post from June 2010 since I did not want to miss this party! 

THE SWEET SMELL OF GARDENIAS

I must admit that Gardenia's are one of my all time favorite flowers
We have two large bushes in our back yard and this year the blooms are abundant!
This table setting is to celebrate Gardenias and Spring
Pink, green and white
I won this set of lovely bird plates and I think they are perfect for this tablescape
I started with green place mats and added these pink plates
I found at the Salvation Army back in May
I loved how the pink plate picked up the colors in the flowers
I also used the lacey pink glasses also found at SA
Teacups, teapot and pink creamer, sugar and S&P
continued the colors from the bird plates
 I added the napkins bought last week at the thrift 
white with pink edging and design
 The gardenias are in a green Franciscan ware ball jug
I added a couple of birds to the table
One at each place setting
I am really enjoying these cute garden plates.  

I hope you will check out all the other fabulous posts for this new party each Wednesday.  Get out your plates, set you table and join Let's Dish! 

Hugs,
Linda

So pretty! I love those pale pink dishes. Gardenias are my all time favorite too. I just heard about Kathleen's party...looks like I need to get on the ball. So sorry to hear you are feeling bad. I hope it's just the pollen and you will be up to snuff (pardon the pun) soon! Take care!

How pretty! I'm trying to learn to do a tablescape but so far it looks like I have TOO many things on my table! lol I hope you feel better today! ♥♥♥

Marigene said...

I really like your pink and green table! Those pink plates are so pretty against the green placemats...I don't see very much pink, and when I do, it is usually nothing I would put on my table!

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

Your pink and green tablescape is beautiful. I especially like that green ball jug! I hope you'll get some of the rain we're getting now... Maybe it will help to wash away some of this awful pollen! Hope you feel better soon!!!
