I think it's time I tried my wings this beautiful Monday..
Thank you to Susan from Between Naps on The Porch for hosting this lovely event.
These are the green dishes that I had questions about. I am featuring them here so you can see how they can be used...so..here is the before..
And here is the after..they are used for the centerpiece of a Springtime wedding shower for my Granddaugher Rachel.
Another view of the table..
Brownies on my old real depression glass cookie plate looked beautiful.. notice my very old vintage tablecloth used over white linen...perfect! It worked...
And here are two of the green hobnail cake plates and the berry bowl on the top filled with even more Spring flowers. The third stacking cake plate was used to hold in another way on the table because all of it was on a silver cake pedistal holding with the theme.
And..cupcakes.. I just want to add that all of the cupcakes and desserts, decorations etc. were made by my daughter, Maryalice. She did all of this for her niece. My only part was loaning my things to help out a bit.
And chocolate coverd strawberries...HUGE ones..ice cold and delicious!
And..a fruit tray..
And..the Springtime theme continued with this lovely HUGE butterfly!
Just different views of the table that I thought you might enjoy.
The beautiful lovely pink bows on the backs of each chair...sooo pretty.. This home is featured in the books by Emilie Barnes...which certainly adds to the beauty.
This silver plate punch bowl with footed tray I found in a Thrift shop. I bought it and brought it home..but..somehow it ended up with my daughter. The edges are trimmed with roses..and of course I love that about it. Note the butterfly my daughter added to the handle for a bit more of the Springtime theme of the shower. Please enlarge so you can see the butterfly better.. :)
Lots of silver was used for holding flowers such a teapots etc. The flowers were all from both my daughters yards. They love to garden as I do.
Is there anything prettier than a vase of Spring flowers...We all have our rose bushes...and they come in handy when you want to entertain. VERY handy. Beats running to the floral shop or the super market..and they are fresher! Sooo pretty!
I just got home a bit earlier and wanted to get this up and posted for the morning.
Everything went beautifully...my Granddaughter looked beautiful and cried when we placed her "Bride To Be" satin banner over her head and across her chest. She looked lovely. I do have a picture of her but she is shy about having her picture posted..so I won't do that. Maybe later. I have stuck to the makeover of those matching green glass stacking cake plates..
I hope you enjoyed seeing them...
Hugs to all..
