This Pretty in Pink Simple Chic Tablescape is my idea of a toned-down table. By now you know that I have a penchant for a table with deep stacks of dinnerware and lots of extravagance. However, this time I wanted a tiny break from my indulgent tablescaping ways.
Maybe it’s due to all the sunshine and warm weather around here. Our days have been light, breezy and laid back, and it feels awesome. I also haven’t turned on my oven this week to bake. Oh, my goodness what is happening to me?!?!? As my mom used to say, “and this too shall pass”.
Using pink as the predominant color seems so natural this time of year and I just went with the flow. This pink rosette table runner is one of my favorite pieces of linens. It is an Efavormart purchase from a few years back. If you haven’t been to their site, it’s well worth the time to browse their selections, and the prices are great.
Instead of going upward with my center display, I ventured outward. In the center, I placed a small clear vase with pink faux tulips. These little lovelies were very uncooperative but I wrestled them into submission. On either side, I’m using tall mercury glass taper holders with a small pillar candle on top. I won’t be lighting them so dripping wax isn’t a concern. At each end, there are milk glass vases with carnations with additional pink blooms. I never appreciated the charm of milk glass until I started blogging. Thrift stores seem to have an endless supply and I don’t think you can have too many pieces.
Compared to my last table, this stack is diminutive in size. It starts with an acrylic dark pink charger followed by a dollar store square dinner plate. I wrapped the plate with a light pink napkin and proceeded with the rest of the stack. From the top, you see the pink and white plate with a gazebo in the center and the rim etched with flowers and scrolls. This set is a TJ Maxx purchase from years ago. What you don’t see is the white salad plates that they sit on. I was all about trimming the size of my plate stack but without the white plate underneath the stack looked flat as a pancake.
Faux mother of pearl cutlery seemed the most appropriate as did the pink stemmed goblets and champagne flutes. This is what I call sweet, simple and to the point. My Pretty in Pink Simple Chic Tablescape is relaxing and perfect for the season.
