mostly because I haven't found a place to store them yet!
It was easier to just wash them & put them back on the table.
Like Marty at A Stroll Thru Life says
"I think I need an intervention!!"
The white dinner plates with the soft pink & purple flowers
are by Pfaltzgraff.
They were $1 apiece at a local thrift store & they only had 6
but that works nicely for this table.
What a HEAVENLY fragrance!
I cut just a few branches & mixed them with
pink carnations, baby's breath & purple statice in my large white ironstone pitcher.
My Napoleon Bee glassware by La Rochere that I won
from Taste & Twirl... (thank you Libby) goes BEEutifully with my
Napoleon Bee flatware from Horchow
which is on SALE, by the way, until May 19th.
I found the little candlestick flower arrangers on Ebay
after seeing Diann's on her blog, The Thrifty Groove.
I have a large one for a centerpiece that I use often.
You can see it done up with yellow roses here.
I found this lovely serving platter, below,
with its pretty curved edges at T.J. Maxx for only $10 last week.
I love the lacey textured look of the edges!
I'm thinking it will look great with roasted asparagus or perhaps a medley of grilled vegetables.
(if it ever stops raining long enough for us to use the grill!)
Just playing around with Photoscape!
I know you don't light candles in the middle of the day.
Martha Stewart says you should never put a candle on the table
that doesn't have the wick somewhat burned already.
You should always have a candle wick blackened from use if it is on display.
when I go shopping, I ALWAYS check out the clearance aisles first.
I find so many bargains that add nice little
extra special touches to my tables.
A perfect example are these beautifully embroidered sheer organza napkins.
There were 4 in a pack & only 2 packs available, one being 1/2 torn open.
They were marked down to $4 per pack.
That's $1 per napkin!
Aren't they GORGEOUS?!
They remind me of a bride's veil.
Used as an overlay to a heavier, more absorbent napkin, they add a delicate bit of whimsy.
They'll be even prettier over softly colored napkins.
I tucked one of the pink carnations into a bud vase
with some of my Lily of the Valley.
I can remember my mother always placing flowers by her statue,
to honor Mary.
Thank you for stopping by The Gazebo House.
I hope you have lots of beautiful flowers blooming where you live.
