Tip Toe Through the Tulips Table

I had these pretty pink tulips from Easter.  I decided to do a pink tablescape! They are in a glass spooner I found at a thrift shop for 2.00

table 3677

Just a simple table, I used the pink plaid cloth I got at the fabric outlet for a dollar…cotton from Portugal..

table 3676A white charger..Noritake

Pink polka dot plate … CTS

table 3678

Pink and white check napkin, WSONOMA outlet

table 3688

Pink cabbage soup bowl from HG…

Flatware Dansk

Little white b and b dish WSONOMA.

White porcelain nest with PINK M and M’s Villeroy and Boch..

table 3692 Embossed candleholders are V and B..

table 3697

 

Since this is so PINK, I am linking, for the first time,  to Beverly’s  ( How Sweet the Sound) Pink Saturday….Thank you Beverly!

The Easter Bunny brought me this platter from WSonoma Outlet…

table 3653

The Easter Bunny is a good shopper..10 bucks!  “Bill” had a price tag of $34.00 on it, but marked them down a few days before Easter…I  , The Easter Bunny got the last one!

Perfect for a Red Velvet Easter Egg shaped cake for my little grand bunnies…

table 3654

It is iced in chocolate and piped with whipped cream.  In between the layers is choc icing and whipped cream.. It disappeared, quick like a bunny..:)

Now hop over to Susan’s Between Naps on the Porch for some more tables..please!

Hope all those who celebrated had a wonderful Easter!

So what’s next?  Earth Day??

Thanks for visiting! Gollum’s Foodie Friday and Laurie’s Favorite Things Saturday coming up!

  18. A perfect pink table. There is something that I absolutely adore about pink! And your table is the sweetest pink thing! Your dishes look beautiful together. I love your bargin fabric for the tablecloth! I think it really ties everything together.
    The little white dishes that hold the butter knives look lovely on the table. I see you got those from the WS outlet, along with those pretty, pretty napkins! I would love to have a WS outlet near me.
    The Easter bunny did very well leaving you that lovely plate. I would keep that out all year!
    So pretty. I would love to be a guest at your table.

    I love your pretty in pink table. That cake almost made me hop over for a slice...but I bet those grandies of yours didn't leave much behind. Your pink and white fabric is so perfect for that lovely table. As always, I so enjoy my visit.

  36. Hi Kathleen,

    I was going to ask if you'd mail me a piece of that delightful looking cake ... but I hopped in too slowly, didn't I? Whipped cream probably doesn't travel well anyhow I suppose.

    I'm glad those pretty pink tulips inspired you to create this wonderful table. Everything about it is just right -- clean, fresh, and simple. Nicely done!

    I enjoyed your descriptions as well. Just enough information. Thank you, Teacher. I think I'll try to "talk" less next time. No promises though! ;)

    Bye for now,
    Bill

  44. Hi Kathleen,
    I came back to have a look around and loved all your creative tablescapes. They were so nice!

  49. I have to say that your plate is adorable. Your cake is beautiful and I would like seconds:) Now the song will be going around and around in my head all day today along with visions of tiny Tim and I think her name was Miss Vickie? I remember he married about 1971 on TV and I stayed up and watched. What was I thinking? I have not been posting due to computer issues which are finally cleared up by my daughter closed on her new house on Monday and I am babysitting Mr. Vundervants so little time to myself. Catch ya around next week.
