My First Pink Saturday

I'm joining in for the first time with the Pink Saturday meme hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.


This is a pink Valentine table for two I created last year
for Mr. Delight and I.

 

The table is next to our front windows and
we often eat breakfast here. 
I decided to dress up the table for an intimate dinner using a pink tablecloth, pink candles, pink hearts and pink flowers.



Pink tulips in a glass vase are put on a pedestal cake plate. 
I surrounded the base with white mini-lights covered in tulle.
The crystal candle lamps are by Partylite purchased 
quite a few years ago.
The pink beaded hearts were from HomeSense last year.


  

This pink and white china is called Dimity Rose by Royal Albert.
It is the pattern we chose (well I chose!) 27 years ago
for our wedding china.
I used vinyl heart-shaped cling-ons on the stemware and votive holders to make them fit the theme.  
The burgundy ringed glasses are special to me as I inherited
them from a favourite great aunt.
  
This is another tablescape I did before I had a blog and can you imagine, I only took 4 pictures of it!  I'm showing this pic again enlarged so you can see a bit more detail.
 
Thanks for looking! Happy Pink Saturday to you all!

What a breathtaking table! I love how soft and romantic it all looks. I love how you put the vase on the pedestal with the mini lights. I just might have to try this myself!

I love the way you used the lights under the flowers...so pretty. My mom has those goblets, I'd forgotten all about them. I wonder where she keeps those...hmmm...she isn't using them...
