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
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!
