The weather has been absolutely fantastic here in Arkansas. We have gotten just enough rain to keep everything fresh and green. The flowers are in full color and the hummingbirds have been busy at all of the feeders. The evenings have even been on the chilly side so the sleeping has been marvelous.
The lovely soft colors of today’s rose tablescape just whisper of the glorious weather we have been having.
Sharing Memories of A Grandmother with a Rose Tablescape
The beautiful dishes on the table today hold special meaning as they belonged to my maternal grandmother and they bring back wonderful treasured memories of a special lady.
They are Popegosser China in the patter called Leon, with some of the pieces numbered.
I absolutely love the delicate pink roses as they circle the plates, outlined by a tiny gold scalloped edging.
I love how the gold toned flatware, which has been in my husband’s family, works perfectly with the pattern of the place settings.
The placemats/chargers were a DIY project. Check back for my tutorial to come on those. (UPDATE: You can find the placemat tutorial HERE)
The centerpiece of the rose tablescape features the DIY topiaries we created in my last post. If you missed it you can find it HERE.
The height of the topiaries allows us to easily view those who are sitting across the table from us.
And the soft tones of the roses mimic the roses found in the plate pattern.
Each topiary was nestled into an embossed metal bucket to give a garden feel to the rose tablescape.
I added a bit of ivy to the base of the topiaries and a soft pink ribbon to coordinate with the beautiful roses.
Small pink roses were tucked beneath the plate. This would be great place to add a place card for each guest.
I used a rose napkin fold and centered the small dessert bowls within the petals of the napkin.
The delicate salt and pepper shakers look so sweet.
A bird’s eye view gives us a glimpse of the dainty sugar and creamer.
Thanks for stopping by today and sharing the very special rose tablescape with me. Do you have dishes that bring back special memories for you?
Hope you are enjoying a wonderful week.
