Square Rose Plates

Let's do lunch. It's been so hot here in California, I think a nice salad with every thing in it.
I have home grown tomotoes, green onions, cucumbers, then we'll add some
lettuce, feta cheese, dried sweet cranberries and
maybe some cubed chicken. Almost forgot grilled garlic toast. Yum sounds good!

I put together this silk arrangement of peonies, and ivy.

A candlestick or two.

My square plate my sister gave me as a hostess gift
during last years hoildays came from Ross. My sister is so thoughtful.

I added the white bowl from Corelle.
I use these little bowls alot. They are just the right portion size
and seem to fit in most tablecsapes.
Thought maybe we could have strawberry shortcake.

How about a nice glass of iced tea with lots of ice.
Just the way I like it.
Glasses came from Wal-Mart years ago.

After my sister gave me my first square plate I was
on the prey to find more. I found this one also at Ross.

This is a quilt I made. It is a sampler, with all my
favorite colors. I draped it over my chair at the table
the other day and it has been there ever since. I
kinda liked it and I was able to see my quilt.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope you enjoyed my tablescape.
Blessings! ~ Cindy

Old Country Rose Tea

Come on in, it was nice of you to stop by.I am serving tea today, in my Old Country Rose China.
I folded the green napkins in the placemat fold,
and the cranberry napkins I folded in the placecard fold.
I really like to use placecards, and fabric napkins when setting the table.

Candlelight always makes the table I think.

The sugar in the sugar bowl is pink if you look real close.

A close up view of one of my favorite teapots.

How about some fruit, chocolates and chocolate cupcakes...

A close up veiw of the desserts.

I arranged the silk ivy and flowers and for fun I
added some faux green apples.

A view of the whole table.
Now I invited some of my furry friends...

Miss Penelope, Miss Maize and her friend, Annabelle Bear

They will be served with the miniture Old Country Rose
tea set my daughter got for me several Christmas' ago.

This is Miss Penelope

Miss Maize and Annabelle Bear.

Napkin Fold Books

Two of my favorite Napkin Folding books.

4th of July 2009

4th of July Table 2009I used the "Declaration of Independence"
I got at the Reagan Library.

Have to have some Americian Flags!

Napkins folded into G.I. Caps. I found this napkin fold in the book
"Napkin Folds" by Bridget Jones and Madeleine Brehaut

My place settings. A little pinwheel at each
place for a whimsical touch.

You might have seen these little cakes in
many of my tablescapes. They are fake, and
some of them I have made myself. It just
adds to the table I think.

I will learn how to take off the date and time on my camera
so it does not show up on my pictures.
