Daisy Table

I have a little table for two set outside with daisies and bright cheerful linens.
I am trying to challenge myself to capture different moods at different times of the day by using lighting.  I really liked the way the afternoon sun washed across the texture on these plates.
Always trying to find new and creative uses for objects I have used before.  The birdcage gets centerpiece treatment filled with sea shells and pillars.

Pink is my favorite color and daisies are one of my favorite flowers.


Goblets are Cristal D'Arques pattern Longchamp.
Dessert plates are Maxcera pattern Bohemian Floral.
Salad and dinner plates are Hotel Balfour.
Napkins made by me. 
Napkin rings Pier 1.
 I will join these parties:
Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday. 
Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday. 
Laurie at Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie for My Favorite Things.

Beautiful pink hues ... I love that time of the evening, when the sun is dropping ... You've done a fantastic job capturing the changes in the light. Very pretty.

Sharlotte said...

Oh, I just LOVE this! It looks so fresh and inviting! I LOVE your dishes too! The rims of the white plates are quite striking and the daisy plates are just plain cute. Your birdhouse is the perfect centerpiece and the addition of the seashells truly say "summer". Thanks so very much for sharing, this is very inspiring!
