Pink Saturday's First Birthday!

Did you know Beverly's weekly Pink Saturday event is celebrating it's first birthday? A pink tea party would be a wonderful way to celebrate and since the weather is so beautiful, we'll have an outdoor party.

Let's shop the house for a
pink tea party tablescape! Pink roses from the grocery store are arranged in my grandmother's cut glass vase. Mom loved table linens and had a pink tablecloth and napkins, lucky for me, and to jazz it up I layered her crocheted tablecloth over the pink cloth. Crystal candle holders with short pink candles add a little more sparkle to the table. It's a little breezy, I hope they stay lit.

A pretty hydrangea teapot filled with blue berries and white tea is perfect for our tea party. The cup and saucer have sweet pink flowers on them, so lovely for our Pink theme. A slice of bundt cake with whipped cream and raspberries on a hydrangea plate will be delicious!




The birdcage was almost perfect, all it needed were flowers inside. We'll just "borrow" the pink hydrangeas from another arrangement. The finishing touch - a little bird on a nest resting on the flowers.



I hope you enjoyed shopping the house with me, now would you like visit for awhile and have some tea and a piece of cake?

Happy PINK Saturday!

Yeah, it's Pink Saturday's 1 Year Celebration!

What a lovely table - the birdcage is precious.

Today I've got Part II of For a Princess (with Part I recapped) - and as it is centered around a celebration, it fits perfectly what with all of the little princesses in their pink tiaras; ) I hope you can come by - I know you'll enjoy it.
