I cannot believe it’s been almost two months since this tablescape…

… and this exchange:
… but this week when I realized the Tablescape Challenge was actually going to happen, I re-read Debbie’s comment. After all, I didn’t want to miss any aspect of her challenge or I would **lose** for sure! It’s a good thing I did because I’d forgotten about the “accessories.”
accessories plural of ac·ces·so·ry (Noun)
I decided to focus on the more attractive part of the definition … and see if I could add an accessory that was perhaps more than expected.
I started with the versatile white Gibson “Claremont” plates and added the beautiful Haviland floral plates I won from Cherry Kay at Entertaining Women. If you’ve never seen her tablescapes, you’ll definitely want to head over for a peek. _Vintage napkins doubled up in a faux pewter twig-style napkin ring paired with antique sterling flatware with mother-of-pearl handles. _I know, I know … There’s the pink, but where’s the “rustic?”
Are wildflowers rustic enough for you? Probably not.
I added vintage stemware with etched roses on it. Anyone recognize the pattern? Seems like it’s Fostoria, but I don’t remember.
Debbie’s a flower gal, and I’m still really liking the handful of wildflowers I added … so they’re staying.
If you take a deep breath, you will be absolutely intoxicated by the smell of wild honeysuckle hanging in the air…
I wonder what Debbie will think about this tabletop …
Is it rustic enough for you yet?
I kinda love how I can’t decide which element of this Tablescape Challenge turned out to be the attractive accessory. Is it the table for two? …
Or is it the au naturale surroundings?
>< I'll let you decide. What do YOU think?
What would YOUR dainty pink with rustic/earthy accessories tablescape look like? What elements would you use?< I'll probably have to wait to see if I passed the Challenge or not. Debbie has a busy week, and she may not get by here for awhile. In fact, she's so busy that there probably won't even be a tablescape at Words on Wheels, which is really disappointing, because she does some fantastic ones! Even if she’s not there today, you should still stop by for a visit…
Thanks for the challenge, Debbie. It was fun … even if it did take “forever.”
