Hello, Ladies! Time for the monthly challenge here!
Before you link up, please read this. If you took the challenge you must have included at least one of the above elements in your scape.
You have to link back to this party in your post or at the end, but not on a different page. We all know no one goes to that page! : ()
Please be a follower to link up, and link to no more than 5 parties. ( I am stealing that from Share Your Cup at Jann’s, it is a good idea!)I have a hard time remembering to link to that many!
Please put your blog name first.
Turn off your word ID if you have it, it takes up too much time to type the code in, so people leave without commenting.
The most important thing is, that if you link, you visit at least 5 entries. We are not a huge party, I know I run from parties where there are a huge amount of links. And remember, only ONE link.
I know you get many visits from this party, as that is the kind of gals who link here, we visit each other! Linking and running is not their way!
My inspiration tonight came from Alma, The Tablescaper.
She gifted me with these lovely BIRD dishes, pink compotes, AND the little white linen coaster on it for my birthday. There are 12 plates and 3 different bird designs. You will see those in later posts.
She also gave me the beautiful cut work runner beneath the plate.
The centerpiece started with this white ceramic bird bath I got, a few years ago at Michael’s.
White roses and babies breath, with some greens from the yard.
Some natural colored faux eggs added.
I started with a rose colored cotton cloth, birds nest charger, white cloth doily from the .99 store, rose Pfaltzgraff Filigree plate, bird plate and pink compote.
Silver swan napkin ring, as birds flock together! I got them on ebay.
I paired a pale pink linen napkin with a white one.
The flatware is Calypso by Towle via Cmas Tree Shops. Pier One carries it too, but more $$$.
Silver egg cup holds a pink hard boiled egg.
Glassware is by Gorham, via Lenox Outlet.
These are the little linen coasters Alma gave me. Aren’t they darling? The birdie glasses were also from Alma, and they will fly into a later post.
I think that’s about everything. The nest chargers were a find at the PB Outlet on one of the bargain hunting trips with Alma, , 2.00 each! I used them in this table too.
Now hop around to all the other entries that you can, and tell them a little BIRD sent you!
Thanks so much for stopping by, you are so tweet!
Don't forget to add a link back to this party, those who don't will be deleted, sorry!
The May Let’s Dish Challenge is May 14th. The theme is WEDDING CHINA, which was suggested by two ladies. It can be your wedding china, or if you are not married, your mom’s or gmom’s.
