I cheated a little!

I was feeling unmotivated to do my table this week, after 40 some odd tablescapes, you kinda wonder what to do- but then I went shopping and found some new accent plates! They are still Johnson Bros Ironstone, but with a ring of really pretty flowers! Changed a few candles, popped the napkins in the stemware, and after I had taken my pictures already, I put down some REAL rose petals from my daughter's shower rose. I found some purple taper candles at iParty of all places.






and now with the real rose petals (I was shocked how much it changed the look!).




As always- be sure and join Susan and the rest of the Tablescapers over at Between Naps on the Porch

Thanks for stopping by- leave a little howdy!



Blessings-

Pretty table ... every time Ivisit your site and see you hugging that baby ... I want to jump in the car and go hug mine! She's just two blocks away, but I'd like it better if she lived across the street! I love Johnson Bros ... and the chintz plates add a real soft tone to your white ... very pretty.
