Visions Of Pink Tulips Dancing In My Head

T'was the promise of Spring when all through my mind I had visions of Pink Tulips dancing in my head….

Not many creatures are stirring, not even a mouse since once again
we are blanketed with snow!  
Say what???  Yes and more coming… 

Ignoring the outside I kept the vision going and dressed the table.  Building from the pink tulips I added pink napkins.  Pulling from the green in the flower pot I added the green napkin rings along with the cabbage leaf placemats.  I layered blue placemats in to repeat the blue in the dishes.  The creamy white flatware copies the dinner plate and pedestal holding the flower pot.

 Sweet tea would be wonderful in these delicate goblets...

Egg salad sandwiches cut into wedges on crustless bread would be lovely too along with an assortment of fresh fruit in little crystal bowls…

I nearly forgot the cute little piggy salt and pepper shakers from my sister…they make me smile :-)

With the sun casting it's beauty an ethereal glow is created…

The vision continues and I'm imagining a few of us gathered for this luncheon….

Sharing good conversations and laughs….

The vision of pink tulips have danced in my head….
Now let's hope the weather will get the spring message or I'm going back to bed!

The players:
Salad plate- Adelaide Blue by 222 Fifth
Dinner Plate- Lacy by Pier 1 Imports
Flatware from Horchow-  Sam Remo by Hampton Forge
Crystal stemware- Vintage by Williams Sonoma
Pink Napkins- Pier 1
Green Cabbage placemats- Pier 1
Blue placemats- Williams Sonoma


  1. I love tulips, and your tablescape is great!

  2. What a lovely Spring table, Liz! The tulips in the sunshine will brighten up any day. The piggy salt and pepper add such whimsy to a beautiful setting. Your friends can't wait to be invited to your lovely home. ♥

  3. Liz, your table is so lovely with the pink. The tulips are beautiful. A welcome change to celebrate Spring, even though the weather is not cooperating. Soon, sunshine will be everywhere. Loving the stemware and we can not forget the adorable piggies.

  4. Would love to join you at that lovely spring tulip table and the menu sounds delish! Yes, some sweet tea in the beautiful goblets would be wonderful. Fun rhyme you came up with too. Hope your snow goes soon!

  5. Beautiful tablescape Liz! I love your tulips and your lovely stack of plates.
    The menu sounds great too, and that cute rhyme you came out with. oh my... I guess Spring is still a little behind in your neck of the woods.

  6. Liz,
    This is truly exquisite. I do believe it is one of your most stunning creations, and they are all beautiful.I just love the soft hues and oh that pink and those tulips.
    Those little piggies are just perfect too!
    Please join us tomorrow at Thoughts Of Home On Thursday!

  7. Liz, this is so beautiful. I am in love with the pink lace trimmed napkins. I've always loved pink and it feels good in a home. Your table is exquisite!

    We are so happy that you join us at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. It means so much to us. :)

  8. Liz this is so pretty! I bought my sister some dessert plates and cake stand in the Adelaide pattern and she absolutely loved them! The pattern looks so beautiful on your table it makes me wish I had kept them for myself! LOL

  9. What a pretty table! The blue and white dishes are so pretty and I like how you layered your place settings!

  10. Beautiful Liz! I LOVE the way you photographed it!

  11. How absolutely lovely Liz! I adore that pattern and fell in love with your tulips and pink linen napkins!

  12. So pretty Liz, the pink tulip centerpiece is just stunning. They are so gorgeous in your old pot. They steal the show. Then the pink napkins are another standout. Im adding you to my side bar. Not sure why I didn't have you there before.

  13. Very pretty, Liz! I love tulip and you captured them so well. Now about that egg salad, it's about lunch time and I think I will make some!

  14. Liz, this is so pretty! Those Pier One nappies are gorge, and all of that beautiful soft light is just breathtaking!
    I can't believe it is snowing there!! Here in CA, we have had temperatures in the 90s already...luckily this weekend we should get a little rain.

  15. Beautiful table, Liz...pink and blue has always been a hard combination for me to work with, without it looking like a baby shower table, which yours certainly does not. The tulips really look nice in the aged pot. I love the lace-edged napkins.
    Have a great weekend.

  16. The peachy pink against the blue is just gorgeous Liz! Your post is such a happy addition to Thoughts of Home on Thursday. Thank you SO much for sharing the joy.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  17. Liz you have done it again. This is a lovely tablescape and the pink mixed with the blue is wonderful.
    You are ready for Spring!
    Thank you for joining Thoughts of Home on Thursday!

  18. Beautiful table Liz! Thanks so much for joining the Dishing It & Digging It Link Party, it's always a pleasure to see your wonderful posts. Have a great week!

  19. I wish I could come over for this luncheon! I love egg salad and would love to sit at this beautiful table....even if there is snow outside:(

  20. Oh Liz, what a stunning tablescape! The soft pink napkins with lace, the tulips, and the sun streaming in make an incredible vision of loveliness.

    It seems like it's been ages since I have visited you...I hope you are well :) Hugs and joy!
