Tablescape Thursday ~ Pink & Black

It’s time for Tablescape Thursday which used to be Tablescape Tuesday. Visit our hostess Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to join in or to see lots of different tablescapes from around bloggy world.


This is a table setting in my living room in the State of Washington. When I was there over Christmas I pulled in one of our folding round tables from the garage to set this scape. I really love to be able to set a round table. It really is a lot better for conversation and eye contact with everyone it seems.


I combined my Royal Albert Moss Rose dinner service with some new and old pink depression glass.


I bought this great black and white polka dot round table cloth years ago at Wight’s Nursery after Christmas Sale. If you live in the Seattle area you might be familiar with Wight’s in Lynwood/Edmonds. They always have wonderful decor available along with their plants and gardening departments.


I made the chair covers with some black fabric I bought. The covers only go over the backs of the chairs not the seats. I used pink tulle and ribbon to make a bow around the chair top. Some of my camellias were blooming in December so I floated them in this Depression Glass bowl from Dear’s great, great, Aunt Emma. The pink rose napkin rings are from Target Shabby Chic Collection.

To see more tablescapes visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch.

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage unless I pay them a lot of money. I’m slowly cleaning up many posts from this time period and deleting their ugly grey and black boxes with a ransom request. Such a time consuming bother.

  4. My name is Ellen too, and that’s why I looked! This is my first time posting to Tablescape Thursday, and this is really cool, isn’t it? I love your color scheme here, very unexpected. It reminds me of something, but for the life of me, I can’t remember what it was. Oh well, …


  5. Ellen,
    What a lovely tablescape. The polka dots add a touch of whimsy and the pink depression glass is so beautiful. Truely a wonderful table.
    Have a great evening,

    PS: Thanks for your comment on my blog today. My family immigrated to the US as well, although not from as far away as you. Mother’s wedding gifts were not especially abundant nor extravagant, but cherished just the same. I hope I didn’t misrepresent them in my post.

    Happy Valentines to you and yours! We’re seeing more sunshine up here!
