Sweet Pink Tulips

sweet pink tulips
Do you ever feel a little down or a little sad and just don’t know why?  I feel like that every now and then!  The last time I had one of those days, my sweet husband bought me some pretty pink tulips to brighten my day!

I added some real greenery from the flowerbeds and some faux flowers!  I pulled out my little collection of milk glasses vases to arrange them in.  To break up the white on white, I used a silver platter.

The pink chargers, which are just some spray painted gold ones, are topped with Summer Chintz china by Johnson Brothers.  I purchased them a couple of months ago at a Goodwill store for a buck a piece!

I used vintage yellow napkins to bring out the yellow in the flowers.  The napkin rings add another silver element to the table.  Both are yard sale finds!

The flatware is a vintage silver-plate that I found years ago.

The beautiful etched stemware was a recent thrifty find at Goodwill, 59 cents each!  Amethyst stemware is from Old Time Pottery.

Flowers are just a good pick me up!  I’m so blessed to have such a loving husband!

  1. Tammy, you table looks wonderful. I love the stemware you found! Flowers are a good pick me up! I am due for some!

  2. What a lovely little table setting for the two of you to enjoy your pink tulips! Thanks for sharing, liz

  3. Flowers make me happy, too, Tammy when I have the "blahs". Your hubby is so sweet. And your table, gorgeous. I love the chintz plates, what a great deal! :)


  4. Beautiful pictures, love the flowers in that milk glass. The amethyst stemware is gorgeous.


  5. Thanks so much for stopping by to visit!!
    Love your flowers and beautiful tablescape!! I like the idea of spray painting the chargers!!


  6. I'm sorry you've been feeling down in the dumps. I get that way, too, sometimes. My husband just brings me his dirty laundry, so you are very lucky! :-) :-) :-) The flowers are beautiful, and so is the china!!! What a great buy!!!

  7. Sorry, somehow I posted this comment on your beach post. Love, love your table. Pink tulips are some of my very favorite and they are beautiful in your centerpiece. Also great idea to spray paint the charger and the Johnson Brother plates are perfect. I have some very soft floral placemats that I am wanting to so a setting with but don't have it all planned out but spraying some chargers pink is a perfect idea. So glad I stopped in to see back by for a second look.

  8. I am impressed how you have spotted beautiful things in thrift stores and used them so well-the plates look beautiful with your pink chargers and yellow napkins ! Thanks for visiting my blog !
    BTW,blogger does not allow me to comment from my wordpress blog- hence commenting from my gmail account.
