Yellow Roses & 43rd Wedding Anniversary


A glowing bunch of yellow roses just in time for our 43rd Wedding Anniversary which is this week!

I wanted a blue and yellow mix so I went with these dishes from Pottery Barn.  Interesting there is no pattern name on the bottom but I looked up my orders and they are called Sophia.  The tablecloth is from Williams Sonoma, called Vintage Floral Jacquard.

I chose these seagrass chargers for their shape, slightly curved upwards and the bamboo handled flatware to compliment the dishes.  

 I always love yellow and blue mixed. 

When I picked out the wedding cake  back in 1978 I had chosen yellow roses with vines going from one to the other.  Our wedding invitations were a soft yellow embossed with roses too.


The champagne flutes sit on some beaded seashell coasters I found at Home Goods

A quiet dinner with some friends...

Happy 43 to my Loving Husband and Cheers to many more!

Yellow Roses and the Credenza


 Ah back in the kitchen area.  I decorated the top of the credenza (again).   Got two dozen yellow roses and I'm in love with them!  I love the flavor of lemon and these remind me of lemon meringue pie!
 I used some of the same elements but differently as I did back on Jan.7, 2021

These Pottery Barn candlesticks have been used so many times, they were a good investment!  I don't always use them as candlesticks though!

This is a new metal planter from Hobby Lobby.  There were three sizes and this is the smallest.  I put styrofoam in the bottom and bought 4 of these flocked lavendar bushes as far as they'd go in and them added moss to finish it off.  Do you know that they did away with the 40% coupon for anything regular priced?  They said it's because they have so much on sale they don't feel it's needed any longer.  I beg to differ but what can you do?

 Back to these yummy roses!

Some are ever so lightly tinged with soft pink on the edges

 Outside.  I almost hate to show you, but it's reality!  I have tulips, daffodils and primrose growing.

 I picked away a lot of the brown but there is still more to take off.  I'm impressed with how much larger it has gotten.
Love this bright red color.  These will bloom for a good while
I bought 4 soft pink colored Primrose and added them to my pink garden.  As many of the oak leaves I have removed I'm always surprised how many are still showing up!

Well that's it for me!

I will be joining

A Stroll Down the Easter Parade!


I'm starting my Easter decorating with a parade! 
This was last year's find, an FAO Schwarz bicycle with bunnies!

I found another this year that I couldn't resist!  The tall Easter bunny was from last year and has a nice basket in the back.
An Easter egg tree with hand painted eggs.  I believe the tree and eggs came from Pier 1 a while back.  I do miss the store.

These three young bunnies will soon be carrying out duties like their parents, delivering Easter eggs!

I got this bunny this year.  Loved the violas!

She's actually a cookie jar but I wanted her as a statue so she is!

Love the pretty painted eyes.  The pair is from Fitz & Floyd from many years ago from a group called Poppies.

Her eyes are pretty too!  From Home Goods.

Thank you for joining me as we take a Stroll Down the Easter Parade!

St. Patrick's Day Dining (T)

Happy  St. Patrick's Day to all! 

Each year I try to do something different for my St. Patrick's Day tablescape.  So I've assembled pieces I've used in the past and some I haven't!  I've got Shamrock's, Gold Coins and Leprechaun hats!  That should bring some good luck to us!

There are shamrock's all over the white overlay.
Underneath is a paisley print blue and white tablecloth.

I brought in a bit more blue with the dinner plate plus some lavender to go with the flowers and cabbage plates because it's for St. Patrick's Day!  Corned beef and cabbage, I do love that!

I also used my cabbage placemats with a green and white patterned napkin to complete my 
St. Patrick's Day table! 

Speaking of the flowers!  I created a free form arrangment with lilies, mums, carnations and filler pieces.  Costo $14.99 can't go wrong!

 My Thanksgiving Cactus is in full bloom as seen here in the background.

Wishing you a Blessed and Happy St. Patricks's day!

Tropical Spring Tablescape (T)


 Let's jump continents to enjoy a Tropical Spring Tablescape! 

These flowers had all the right colors for my tablescpape and I decided to incorporate elephants in with it too!  The dishes, tablecloth and napkins all had a touch of orange.  The vase  is an elephant!

These elephant plates are from World Market a couple of years ago.

I used green stemware and coffee mugs to go with the salad plates.

The flatware is decorated with antiqued silver finish so I used some antique silver napking rings to go along with them. The chargers are from Pier 1, and the dinner plates were a find at Cracker Barrel a long time ago.  The reminded me of the Thread and Berry plates by Juliska so I grabbed them up.  They have no identification on them.  The coffee mugs are from Park Designs, from the Old World Collection.  Green stemware was from One King's Lane many years back.

There were hydrangeas in the floral bouquet but they didn't last long. 
Carnations, Alstroemeria, Football Mums, Oriental Lilies and Stock

I hope you enjoyed my Tropical Spring Tablescape!

Still enjoying the amaryllis!
I sure have enjoyed growing the amaryllis this winter season. 
 It gave me fresh flowers and added color!  They don't have to be just for Christmas!
Now I'll be waiting to see some daffodils and tulips!
