Mothers Day Roses Inspiration Tablescape and a Blue hour try!

My sweet hubby got me roses for Mothers Day, which is usually against my rule- (don't buy flowers on Mothers Day or Valentines Day) but I gladly accepted them anyway! (Usually he says, "but you're not MY Mother!")I figured I would get a couple more days out of my roses, so here is my table to go along with my roses! I used my trusty Ironstone (surprise, surprise!) and my gold silverware and I had a slew of red candles (I am borderline hoarding the candles, people!) throw in red napkins and voila! another favorite!

Be sure and visit Between Naps on the Porch for some more tablescaping (and blue hour) fun!

Here are a few pics of my blue hour try-

The first two were taken across the street from my house outside with no flash. The 3rd one is the parking lot at Publix. The pictures were a lot bluer than I thought they would be. I really thought this blue hour was fascinating. (I like learning something new every day!)

I think this is the most romantic Mother's Day Table I've seen, and I think that's perfect! I like the red with your pretty white dishes, too. Great job!

Happy Tablescape Thursday!

Everything is gorgeous and elegant! The wavy-edged red chargers complement your classic ironstone dishes perfectly. I love they way you've used them for a variety of tablescapes that demonstrate the versatility of your dishes. It's been a while since I've stopped by, and your collection is really growing. Kudos to your sister for keeping a watchful eye out when she's shopping/thrifting.

Thank you for the mention in your last week's post. You're very kind to think of me.

Warmest regards,

All your red elements look so pretty with your white china -- and I love your glass-topped table! The red flowers in the coffee cups are a cute touch!

Hi Nana,

thats's a pretty table. I love the vibrant red accents on it. The candlelight looks so charming. Very festive.

Your sister Tammy told me, that you would help me to get bigger photos on my blog ( I wasn't able to sent you an email. Would you help me with that?

Greetings, Johanna
