PINK FAVORITES, THRIFTY FINDS, TEAPARTIES AND A GIVEAWAY


My favorite day of the week is here again...and I love Pink Saturday.  It seems alot of my tablescapes have pink in them because I tend to gravitate to happy colors.  Yellow, pink and red are such cheerful colors to play with. 


This week I wanted to do a table for my friend Deb, who gave me this sweet teapot for Easter decorated with dainty little pink rosebuds.   Deb is one of my dearest friends and is one of the most generous and kindest people I know...She has a laugh as big as Texas (we live in Oklahoma..but I think they can hear her across the Red River)  Love you Deb!! 


I  found fabric window panels from Martha Stewart's collection at a thrift store and thought they could double as a beautiful tablecloth for this teapot.  I'm linking to Rhoda's Thrifty Treasures this week as this was one of my thrifty finds this week.   


My old favorite pink and off white dishes came back out since the colors are so soft and coordinate well with the floral print. 


I added some spring accessories for a springtime breakfast.  Sweet little egg cups are perfect for this table.









Hope you are enjoying beautiful Spring weather!

Have a wonderful week and don't forget to check out all the pink posts at Beverly's How Sweet the Sound as well as Laurie's Favorite Things Saturday.

I'm linking with Chari's Sunday Favorites too..she is always such a fun hostess! 

Also linking with:  Rhoda at Southern Hospitality on Monday for Thrifty Treasures, Marty's Tabletop Tuesdays, Lady Katherine's Tea Time Tuesdays, Susan's BNOTP Tablscapes Thursday and Cindy's Romantic Home Show and Tell Friday!

  15. Hi -- what a sweet and charming tablescape! Love how it all was inspired by that adorable tea pot ... how nice to have a generous and loving friend!

    I also like the repurposing of the curtain panels. Fabric is fabric after all -- tablecloths can be curtains, and vice versa!

    And I of course am already a Follower!
