FABBY: White Tablecloth and Pink Roses!

Hello sweet friends!

   How exciting to join and visit so many wonderful table scapes at: "Let There be White Challenge at Kathleen's for Let's Dish"... Wednesday - July 31, 2013. 

My inspiration is my new embroidered white linen tablecloth, made in India.  I was so lucky to buy at sale with a 60% off a couple of weeks ago; along with the cut-work square lace one I recently posted too. So fortunate to buy 'both' lovely cloths on sale. I simply adore beautiful table toppers!

Therefore, I used the white linen, White Scapes Noritake dinner plates and flower salad plates that go with pink and lilac water goblets and sherbets and last, but not least, the beautiful pink roses from my Bil's professional rose farm. These hues I chose to mix with my whites.

Ok, so  Let's Dish!

The white linen embroidered tablecloth, I bought two weeks ago at our local home store Anniversary sale, with a 60% off and I'm using it with white Noritake dinner plates, flower salad plates with pinks and lilac flowers, along with goblets and sherbets in pink and lilac.

I fell in love with the White on White embroidery in this tablecloth, which came with 12 embroidered napkins, as well.

Purple-brown chargers, White Noritake dinner plates, trimmed in gold.

Salad plate, trimmed in gold with pink and lilac flowers.

The plate layers are finally topped with lilac, or purple and pink sherbets.

The other pink sherbet.

I've been very lucky with great sales lately! When we were in Orlando this past June, we bought this classic and wonderful Reed and Barton, big set of flatware, with regular and 12 steak knives as well, plus so many serving pieces; which we found on sale at Bloomingdale's!

The embroidered napkins in a pink ceramic napkin ring made by us. The Swarovski swan is a salt cellar.

The four corners of the very long tablecloth are embroidered and with the cut-work at the ends to finish it off.

The cloth has embroidered branches around it, as well.

The embroidery is like this, all around the top of the tablecloth.

I love these gorgeous pink roses from my Bil's professional rose farm.

Here you can see the Polish water goblets that are four lilac and four pink. The sherbets are a set in the same color. The clear wine glasses are Mexican hand blown.

In the evening by candle light.

Some of the friends that follow me know that we just added to the foyer our old Italian bronze chandy we had up to last year on the dining room ceiling for thirty years... hence we replaced it for this antique Italian Marie Therese, crystal chandelier. Hubby gifted me for Mother's Day 2012. Now we are very happy with both embellishing our ceiling!

The two candle holders are antique ones from Czechoslovakia.

Thank you so much for your sweet and kind comments, as they always make my day!

Thank you to the lovely and gracious hostesses for hosting such great parties each week.

I'd love to tell all my friends that I erased by accident all the bak links to the parties I joined this week!!!  I am sorry, I'll try to put them back on!
