Pink Saturday

Let' set the table French

DSC06405Today is Pink Saturday and Bev from How Sweet The Sound is hosting this Pin Day. I was inspired the other day, when some fabric arrived from Spoonflower.


DSC06405It made me think how this fabric would look great as a table runner.


DSC06405Or maybe a tablecloth. Did I tell you that I am learning how to sew?


DSC06405After I thought about that, I was browsing in Home Goods (better than therapy). I love white dishes,

Paris Anyone?

DSC06405and I found some lovely coffee mugs and little square dishes with the Eiffel Tower design.

Set the Table French
I had these French doves for candles, but I found sweet little tea lights to go inside.


DSC06405So, I came home and set the table with my favorite coffee pot, dishes, cake forks and coffee spoons and cream and sugar bowl.


DSC06405It's a funny thing about how one thing leads to another. I thought why not join White Wednesday over at Faded Charm, this is my first time.


DSC06405Now I think I will go bake a cake. Or learn how Julia Child makes French pastry.

Evening in Paris FabricThe name of the song for this post is I Love Paris.

The fabric is perfect for your table! I love the beautiful flowers! Are they from your garden? And did you bake a cake? ♥♥♥

Hi Karen
How perfect to find plates and mugs that match your fabric! The table looks wonderful and I like the fabric that you designed.
Hugs, Rhondi

Thanks for inviting us all for tea. Just wish that we knew what kind of cake we're eating here. ;>
Sweet dishes, wonderful fabric, you pulled it all together beautifully.

Love those mugs and the fabric with the Eiffel Tower. How Frenchy you are. Your flowers are gorgeous, and your dining room is so pretty. I need to try a sewing class. I took Home Ec and did NOT do well at the sewing. I'm afraid it it made me dislike sewing. Maybe I've matured enough to have the patience it requires. laurie

Good morning dear Karen!
White dishes and other white accessories are my absolute favorite, especially when serving up colorful food. If the plates are too ornate, you can't see the food! White is beautiful, and so is your lovely, lovely home. Thank you for inviting us in!!! Bisous, Anita

I love the Eiffel Tower tableware - I wish we had a Home Goods near us. The closest thing we have is a TJMax LOL.

A beautiful setting. I felt relaxed more and more as I studied it.

Karen, I have those same dishes! Can you believe it??? I used them for cake when Claudie was here. And I love that fabric and think it will be a lovely runner for your table. You won't believe this either, but I have been thinking of buying a machine, too! Let me know what you get. I have been looking at a Brother to start.

Karen, I also love to shop in Home Goods! The Eiffel Tower plates you found are so pretty, and I love the dove tea light holders.

Happy Pink Saturday!
