My New Side Table

It's Tabletop Tuesday and I'm joining in with Marty and all the other fabulous tabletop vignettes.

 This is the "Before Picture" of the end table I had between our two love seats in the living room.
 I recently celebrated a birthday and although it isn't my "official" present, I did convince Mr. Delight that I needed this table.  He threw in the roses too!

I didn't capture it very well in the pics but the table has beautiful handpainted detail on the top and sides.
These roses were such a beautiful orange colour and lasted so long, opening bit by bit. Beside the roses, I placed a terrific faux grass "ball" on top of a small metal pot.
On the other side of the lamp, two burnt orange pillar candles sit atop chunky black holders. A birdie tealight holder also gives off a warm glow.

With Spring having just arrived, probably no one likes to think about Fall colours but I'm always drawn to the richness and warmth of them and love the burnt oranges of the roses and pillars.

Thanks for looking, now head on over to Tabletop Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life!

Oh your table is just exquisite. I love it. The roses are such a wonderful and beautiful gift. I like orange too and I think it also says spring and summer to me. The candles, tealight and the pretty plant are perfect with the mirror. Lovely vignette. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

Nice transformation! And you decorated it to perfection! The color of the roses is a wonderful enhancement to the painted table.
All the best,
