Take A Walk On The Wilder Side (T)

Though it's winter and I'm far far away from places with leopards, zebras and elephants I decided it would be fun to step into that world for a bit.   

My white elephant candle holder became the centerpiece today.   Using snipped off flowers from last weeks bouquet I filled the bottom half of a crystal candy dish to top it off. 

I wanted a powerful color to go with the animal print plates so the Pink Flamingo glasses were added.   I really didn't imagine using these two patterns together but I do like it!
 Did you know- Flamingos are found in various places including Africa.  Here is a" link" about them.

The Mikasa dishes are called "Color Studio Animal Prints"

The bright green placemats (Bed Bath & Beyond several years ago) added a nice pop and I found some pink napkins in my stash to pump up the color!

I've always liked animal prints.  
These dishes came as a boxed set of 4 (discontinued in 2013).

The flatware (called Baroque) came from Neiman Marcus a while back.  

It's fun to think about being in a warmer climate and perhaps some wild adventure too!  I always thought going on a safari would be fantastic!  For now I'll just have to dream about it!

Take A Walk On The Wilder Side!

  10. Liz, I love your table and the pink flamingos are fabulous! The animal print plates are so pretty. What a great way to bring a warmth and tropics to your home during the cold months. I'm dreaming of snow here in So. FL and you're dreaming of the tropics up North. We should trade places. :)
