Thanks to Susan at www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com , our hostess for Tablescape Thursday! Be sure to visit her to see some beautiful table settings that will inspire you!
I have family visiting from Arizona for a couple of days, so didn’t have time to play with my dishes this week. My pictures are from a tea that I gave for some friends last February. I wasn’t blogging at the time, so I was just taking pictures for my scrapbook, and didn’t pay too much attention to proper “tablescaping”!
I have one teacup and salad plate from the different series that Royal Albert produced, all of which are compatible with the Old Country Roses teapots. I only took close ups of two of the teacups, so I could show the teapot place card holders and the menus. I found some clip art that had long stem red roses, with the saying “A rose a day keeps the blues away”, and thought it was perfect, so I did the place cards and the menus to match.
Ordinarily, I would have had two Old Country Roses three tiered trays on the table, but they were in the kitchen, waiting to be served, when I was taking these pictures. I ALWAYS forget to take pictures of the food!
I’m so glad you stopped by today, and hope you will come back soon! Remember to visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for more tablescapes, and don’t forget to stop and smell the roses every day. They’ll keep those blues away!
AND…don’t forget to keep “living in the pink”! God bless you all!
