China Centerpiece

 Pink christmas 101
As I planned my pink Christmas it me realize I do not have a lot of pink Christmas things like Santa's and angles and that made me really think out of the box. What I do have a lot of pink is china, one of my many weakness. My plan was to use a lot of white, silver and gold hopping the bits of pink and pale blue would stand out. Plus I am the type you will never walk in my house and see pink everywhere. Believe it or not I am a "tad" understated  ;-) I believe in knowing when to stop.

For my Christmas table I used my shabby chic floral tablecloth, my great-grandmother's Theodor Haviland Limoges pale pink rose china and pink King's Crown glasses. For the center piece I set out different size saucers, children's tea cups, tea strainer and set tea candles with rock salt. Then I just add some greens from outside. I was so happy with it. There was one more special touch and I will show how I made it as soon as I can.

Dear Clarice,

A Happy New Year to you & your family.
What a lovely table for your New Year Celebration. Seeing your beautiful table and ruby goblets brought a rush of happy memories of my late mother-in-law whom I adored.
Those precious goblets were brought down from the shelf and carefully washed,dried and set at every place setting for our Christmas Eve family dinner.
Bless your heart, dear Clarice.
Thank you for such a lovely visit to me, too.

What a beautiful Christmas table! I love the thought process behind what you decided to do, too.


Your table looks very pretty, and I think all of your decorating always looks nice. A while back I found a handmade blanket at the thrift store. More like a tied quilt, I suppose, but both sides are made out of a vintage pink fabric that I fell in love with. I might make things out of it, eventually. I like pink flowers. The real thing, and the ones on dishes. My mom always told me my bathroom towels should have pink roses on them, and she bought me some before she passed on, so I try to buy those when I find ones that I like. Mostly, I only have a little bit of pink in my house. I tend towards neutrals for the big things.


YOur christmas decorations are stunning !
Wishing you a wonderful 2008 ~ Julia



The table looks gorgeous. Re: your comment to me. My butt may not be big, but the stomach and boobs more than make up for it, LOL.
