The idea for this week’s tablescape began with these linens I found last year at Macy’s. The table runner and coordinating napkins are made by Homewear and the pattern is called Rose Kiss. You can purchase them online at: http://www1.macys.com/shop/product/homewear-table-linens-rose-kiss-collection?ID=540239
Tiny buds and luscious blossoms mingle with bright geometrics in this Rose Kiss collection, featuring machine washable linens to outfit your table with ease.
I attempted to bring out the greens, pinks, and golds in the linens with green stemware, vase, and transferware; rose floral china, pink candles and bouquet of roses; and gold accents.
For the centerpiece, I chose this green pressed glass vase featuring gold bows (Grand Bazaar Antiques) filled with pink roses. The centerpiece is flanked by Waterford crystal candlesticks with tall pink tapers and wreaths of silk hyacinths (Home Sweet Home).
I just love this pretty crystal carafe from Maison Decor-perfect for serving dressing.
For the place setting, I layered gold chargers with Schumann Dresden rose garland cameo pattern procelain dinner plates (featured as this week’s treasure at https://www.reddoortabledecor.com/2012/05/21/roses-garland-cameos-oh-my/), and green floral salad plates from One King’s Lane. The green and gold crystal beaded napkin rings are from a quaint gift shop in Hockessin, Delaware called Everything But the Kitchen Sink. The silver belonged to my husband’s grandmother and is Wallace Windsor Rose (1942).
This beautiful green transferware platter is W.R. Midwinter “Landscape” and dates back to 1923 (Summit Antiques Center).
This is why I like to tablescape, because it seems to be the only time I stop to smell the roses.
This beautiful table clearly announces, “A special meal is being prepared for loved ones!” I know your family and friends would feel special indeed to sit here. I love every element!
