company tablescape

Silverware for serving.
My serving tableware. They look tarnished but they didn't photo very good.  I spent a lot of time polishing them as I haven"t used them in a long time.
This tablescape is for my company.  I have never used these dishes and I have had them for several years.  The roses are a pretty rosy color.  the place mats flowers match the dishes.  My silverware is marked just American. I sprinkled some pink roses  and the center is scrunched up ecru sheer material. My flowers are just started to bloom but nothing to make a bouquet with.  The water in the yard is drying up although it did rain a little enough so I could plant some annuls.  My van finally gave out and had that to deal with. 

Lucky me to find these cute tea bag dishes.  The napkin rings also have tine pink flowers.  Most of my dishes are garage sale or thrift store finds. My table cloth is ecru lace although it looks white.  This over the top of a white table cloth.

Great find the wash bowl and pitcher set with roses and the candle holders.  Everything just seemed to come together.


closer look of the cup and saucer and name card.  The L is for my daughter in law Lynnette.

I like tea for dinners and the passion sounds so romantic.

This teapot is quite big the little flowers are tulips.

Aren't these rose buds pretty.  You would never know they are made of soap.  Not tasty but smells so good.


These little sugar and creamer are so sweet and match the tea bag dishes.
My napkins are the ones I use quite often .They are battenberg and the napkin holders are so pretty.
All the dishes match and I didn't use charger as this is not formal.  Just family.
another view of tea cup and rose buds.
I loved putting this table together as everything went easy for a change.      Spring is finally here.  We have had a lot of rain but the temps are getting up there.  The dogs love it  as I leave the back door open so they can come and go.  They get so tired digging and hiding their bones they have to nap a lot.So funny to watch.  We saw our bunny so I guess it survived the winter.  She was nice and fat so probably will have some babies. The birds are nesting but I haven't heard any cheeps yet.  We lost one nest of three.

Oh, wow! I love pink and white to begin with. I can't believe those rosebuds are soap! They are lovely. The china is so delicate looking. I just made some white linen napkins. Wish I had thought to add some lace after seeing yours.

Your dishes are so pretty and dainty! And I never saw rose soaps which look so real. Hope you get to see the baby bunnies! Linda

Beautiful table!! You just must use your dishes. I use anything that can handle the china cycle on my dishwasher. I hand wash my cookware and that's it!
