Pink Roses

Last week I did it! I burned “the pink candle sculpted like a rose” — and vowed to use it in my next tablescape. If you don’t know the significance of the pink candle, I hope you’ll click and read my previous post. If you took me up on last week’s challenge, the link is at the bottom of this post. I look forward to hearing your stories! (Remember, if you don’t have a blog but want to participate in the challenge, you can email your pics to me for posting!)

But now, it’s time for my next tablescape … The pink rose candle provided lots of inspiration, and the choice of dishes was easy … pink roses, of course!

A white damask tablecloth, then a pink linen damask table square and matching napkins (with rose designs!) — and it was time to layer the dishes …

tuck in a few pink roses …

and light the candles …

Believe it or not, while you sit back and enjoy my pink rose tablescape, I’m going to go list some of these beautiful dishes in my Etsy shop …

I’m still here for a minute … if you’ll look closely, you’ll see that the berry bowls are actually a different rose china set. I’ll be putting it in my Etsy shop soon …

I hope you’re enjoying yourself. It’s beginning to get late … but stay as long as you like. You’re always welcome here!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to see you again soon. In the meantime, drop by my Etsy shop and take a peek … You’ll find the “pink roses” decorator pieces shown here plus the tablescape features shown below — and lots more!
