Shades of Pink Tablescape

 These beautiful silk roses with dark brown
French script caught my eye and inspired this pink
table.  I think I am just wishing for warm
weather as we got blanketed with snow
this week!

The pink mercury glass also jumped right into
my shopping cart as I was treasure hunting
at Home Goods this week.  I thought the
two of them went so well together and they
immediately had a place on my kitchen counter.

I created this pink confection to go along with the silk
roses and mercury glass.

Pink and white layers starting with a jeweled charger
and topped with a beaded napkin ring make up today's table.

My aunt's pink depression ware glasses in two sizes
seemed perfect with the roses.  

The table has a romantic old fashioned feel with
a modern edge to it.  The French script roses give
it that updated feel.

I chose my Old Maryland Engraved sterling that I
received for my wedding.  My parents felt that everyone
should own sterling, so they gave us four place settings
when we married and an additional one each year for
Christmas until we had a set of 12.  I am so glad they did.

A little jeweled candle holder adds a fun
textural element to the center of the table.

This table is just so soft and romantic.

It sets me dreaming for warm and sunny
days in the rose garden.....

....but for now, the garden looks more like this!

I will be posting this with

Your table is gorgeous, Jacqueline. When I first saw the roses I thought they might be paper. I've made paper roses in the past...far distant past. I think I will have a look for tissue paper and give it a try again. Yours are beautiful!!

So, so pretty! All that pink makes for a beautiful table. I love your pink mercury glass...I have a few pieces but would love to find more. I guess I need a trip to Home Goods!

HI Jacqueline, I saw those same roses but didn't buy them:( I thought at first you were doing a tutorial on how to mAKE the roses, I know Yvonne is going to do that soon. The table is gorgeous, so soft and pretty. Your sterling is lovely and the pink depression glass is gorgeous. Wonderful treasures. XO, Pinky

Pondside said...

It's all as beautiful as I've come to expect - but I do love the pink, so I was taken with it even more than usual. I've never seen anything like those pink roses with brown script.


Oh honey, what a gorgeous table! I just love all your stock of dishes, they're so pretty and elegant. Crazy about the pink napkin rings, lovely! Love the pink roses, Iguess all ready for Pink Sat.! Don't worry hon, the tea chest is for you to do whatever you want and wow, on top of the piano...yupiiii...Thanks for your sweet visit, can't wait to see your new post. Hugs,

This is so pretty, Jacqueline! I love your sweet dishes, the white ones especially with the detail around the rims. And the silver is gorgeous!


Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

That is just stunning! I haven't seen the pink mercury glass, but it is so pretty!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Jacqueline!! MY GOODNESS where did you get those roses??? I love that! And the brown script on the roses looks like dribbles of chocolate, making it even more wonderful for your theme! LoVELy! I enjoy Homegoods; we have purchased great items from there!

THANK YOU for your visit and comment on my bunnies. They are fun to make, but no one is buying them so I need to figure out what went wrong!!! Oh well, being a full-time teacher and trying to sell things is a bit tricky, so we shall see. But the discovery of crafting has been great and my journey is fulfilling! AND I KNOW what you are saying about this crazy weather! I so hope we don't end up having a cold spring and summer!

Enjoy the end of the week and have a wonderful weekend my dear! Anita

Mary said...

Pink Perfection! I love your scripted roses~ I thought they were paper too when I first saw them. I'm a fan of pink & brown~ your chocolate plates still have me salivating! I love your beautiful layered plates. Stay cozy & warm with your blanket of snow :)

This is so soft and feminine Jackie. It's like a gentle whisper kissed with the color pink.

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Jacqueline, your pink table is so pretty and dainty! And your garden ornament or post (?) is gorgeous with the snow on it. Yes it is snowing here again today and Maine, where my kids are now, is being blanketed. It is funny that in December I would welcome this weather, but now it is a bit depressing. I have not seen pink mercury glass, so I will try to make a trip to HG next week. Hope your snow melts soon unless you are hoping for more ski days. Linda

Marigene said...

I think I may become a lover of pink...your pink confection is beautiful!

Such a pretty, delicate tablescape, Jacqueline. The paper flowers are gorgeous and are most certainly inspirational. I adore pink and brown used together. Stay warm, spring will be here soon........Sarah

dizzyizzy said...

I love this pink table. Oh, and by the way, I m sooo jealous of your purple mercury glass from a previous post.

Tess said...

Oh wow!! This is amazingly beautiful and soooooo girlie (but I'm sure a boy would love to share it with his favorite girl!!). Pink is so wonderful, is it genetically ingrained in us to love it??? Your pink mercury glass is beautiful. I've never seen any before! All around gorgeous table!

Alycia Nichols said...

Purple, pink....I love all those fabulous girlie colors!!! This is so pretty, Jacqueline! Super feminine, which we all need every once in awhile to reassure and calm ourselves. Those are really gorgeous napkin rings. They make me think of rock candy!

Oh, so pretty and pink and soft. It's so neat to see everyone's contributions. I have most of those dishes but have never put them together in that way.

Hope to see you at Seasonal Sundays!

Marydon said...

Such elegant romance in your table setting Jacqueline. Just gorgeous!!

I hope you will pop by to help us bring 'angel love' for a young girl who is sick.

Thank you.
Have a beautiful PS weekend ~

Kathleen said...

How beautiful, so soft and pretty! Every layer is gorgeous, and the roses are just wonderful.
Spring will come, to every thing there is a season, we must be patient! :)

Shabby chic Sandy said...

Pink perfection--those flowers are really pretty!

RobinfromCA said...

What a lovely table. Home Goods shopping can be a dangerous thing to my budget. To much time saying "Look! This is only..." Sure adds up by the end of my trip!



Oh Jacqueline, I love everything in your post, but those script flowers are amazing. Swoon...

Happy Pink Saturday,

Kim said...

I love your pink table, it is "Perfectly Pink". The roses are gorgeous.

Dreamy, Jackie, and the roses are wonderful. I can see many tables using those and each would be different. It's always fun to see what's going on with you.

Stacy's Shabby Shoppe said...

I know I am commenting on a very old post, but I just love your pink tablescape. I remember seeing roses like that at Hobby Lobby this spring and when I went back they were gone! :( That pink mercury glass would have jumped into my cart too! Love Home Goods! xo
