Tablescape: Pretty in Pink Tablesetting

posted in: Tablescapes | 1

Spring has finally sprung in all its natural greenery and to accent it all kinds of wonderful pink flowers. I am lucky enough to have a pink camellia bush which allow me to decorate with its blossoms in such pretty ways. Here’s an example of one way to do a Pretty in Pink tablesetting.

I began with a crisp white cotton tablecloth as the base of the tablescape. Then I added four round pink straw placemats, and then layered them with four spring green acrylic chargers. On top of those I placed plain white dinner plates. Then I put four pink and green plaid cotton napkins on top of the dinner plates. Finally I added pink camellia blossoms atop each placesetting as a treat for each dinner guest. What a wonderful color pop!I used pewter flatware and clear glass drinkware to the table before working on the table centerpiece. I took two clear glass pedestal candlesticks to use in the center of table. On top of them I used two short white pillar candles so the guests could see over them.Around the base of the candlesticks I added four white votive candles, each in a clear glass votive holders. The candles enhanced the romantic atmosphere of the table. The last touch was to add pink camellia blossoms around the base of the candlesticks and votives.

. You could create your own similar tablescape using different pink flowers like azaleas or roses. You can use a different accent color napkins or a floral print.  If you don’t have placemats and chargers, you can create the same look from scrapbook paper circles. Coordinate the papers with the colors of your dinnerware. Decorate your dining table with the wonders of the natural world and make your family meal special. Spring has sprung! Enjoy

    Very fresh and inviting. Great job and I like the tip about using scrapbook paper in lieu of chargers.
