table for two

hi everyone..


i couldn't resist the colour of these gorgeous pink roses for this table setting , even though there wasn't a lot of life left in them. i pictured them in my shabby, neglected old jug which had been gathering dust. 


i've got a bit of a thing for table settings and plates lately.. 
i tried to keep it simple and i like the mix of old and new.
the table runner is a piece of hessian / burlap frayed at the edges and the shell garland i made with drilled shells and string. the plates are from the bed bath and table sale, for those in australia, similar to some of my coffee mugs. for the striped ribbon i headed to no chintz. they always have a good selection. 












have a great week!

  1. I adore those plates! They are so pretty. The roses are gorgeous too. I haven't bought fresh flowers for so long...I think I need to do something about that this week!

    Hope you have a fabulous week.
