First we covered the table with a round cream cloth and draped the same fabric over the chair backs, accenting each chair with a pink ribbon.
The china is Old Britain Castles Pink by Johnson Brothers set on fluted silver chargers, and the flatware is Towle Hotel Stainless. I had collected the goblets on eBay over a period of several months. They are Kings Crown by Tiffin with a cranberry flashing and work perfectly with the Old Britain Castles. Places were marked with pale pink napkins that were secured with silver frame napkin rings, and each guest took home a bag of pink jelly beans.
In the center of the table we used tall silver candleholders with cream colored candles and bunched pink roses in a collection of Old Britain Castles pitchers. Finally, we scattered pink rose petals on the table and added a picture of each of our friends in silver frames.
For the dinner that evening, Glenda, Connie and I donned our pink and pearls and joined other friends to celebrate the lives of Fran and Nan.
Susan at Between Naps on the Porch would love for you to stop by to see what other tablescapes are in store for you this Thursday. You are certain to get some great ideas.
