Tablescape Thursday/ Hot Pink



Many, many thanks to Susan@Between Naps on the Porch for her continuing work in sponsoring this wonderful day filled with beautiful eye candy.

My tablescape today is pretty simple in style, but filled with lots and lots of color.
















This beautiful plate I am using for a Charger, but I wanted to show just how pretty it is in its own rights.

Thanks for coming over and be sure you visit the other tablescapes.

I really like your xoxo dishes. They will work for lots of others events, too, such as birthdays & anniversaries. Theones you used as chargers are beautiful, too.
Well done! :)

This is really soft and elegant for Valentines...I love tulips and your chargers are pretty enough to stand on their own.

Hi Barbara, I just scrolled down to see what I have missed. I love the tea post. I too am a lover of tea, hot or cold, but no sugar please. It all looks sooo good.
Your tablescapes are something I always love to see. Girl, you know your way around a gorgeous table setting. Both show on your current posts are beautiful. They inspire me, I mean it. The XO dishes are darling. XOXO to you too.

Thank you for your sweet comment about my blog. I feel very ordinary about my posts, however, I am glad you like them. I truly love to keep a blog going. It is like a journal to me. Something I would never do with pen and paper. You know I love your blog 'very much.' I wish I had time to visit every blogging friend each day. Life just comes between me and my blogging sometimes. BIG smile.

Have a happy day.
Hugs, Jeanne

Oh so Pretty. I loved both sets of your dishes. Thanks for sharing the charger plate at the end. I loved the fabric table runner added some shimmeriness.

Love the pink. Tulips are my favorite flowers, and I used that bright pink color at my wedding almost 18 years ago. (of course no one uses that color now in a wedding! LOL!) Have a happy Valentine's day!
