Networking With The Ladies

Greetings Friends~ ~ ~

A new season and a new venture. I'm so excited and so ready for Spring. Please join me for a ladies luncheon as we brainstorm and put our intentions out to find the perfect connections for my new business.

What I need right now is someone who can set up a large website for me. I have a rather large list of items that this website must be programed to oversee. I'm not a computer guru but I could really use one right now. If you are one or know one please let me know. I would be thrilled if the magical person for this job would come from my list of blog friends. Thanks in advance for all your help.

Back to the table scape. I set up a table for a little luncheon. I got out the pale pink tablecloth I bought at a flea market. I love this cloth. Look at the jacquard roses woven into it. See them above the place setting. It's so soft and pretty.

I used my vintage hankies for napkins again and I'm finding that I just love this idea.
Around here they are relatively inexpensive $1.50 -$3.00 each.

This pink vintage napkin with the scalloped edge is my favorite.

I love these little clear leaf plates. I often use them for a bread plate. They are a little difficult to see on the table so I tied each one with a snippet of ribbon and placed a few candy eggs on each.

I have used two different patterns of vintage china for the place settings. Two with lavender flowers and two with pink flowers. Don't you just love mixing things up? Each tea cup is also different.

These are some closeups of the centerpiece. I used lots of small Easter pieces I have saved over the years. I love how some of you gals are using much larger pieces for your centerpieces. I must start collecting bigger pieces. I love how they make a big statement.

This little sugar bowl is one of my favorites.

These two hobnail shoes belong to Mom.
Lavender M&M's how great is that!

Antique salt & peppers.

A pretty little tea cup and a sweet set of Cambridge Blue sugar & creamer.
The creamer holds tea bags.

My Thanks to Susan for hosting this Tablescape Party at
Hop on over and see the links to many more beautiful tables.
Hope you all have a Great Weekend.

Hi Ahrisha,
All of your dishes are beautiful, I love the pansy napkin rings in your last tablescape & a great deal they were too!
Using hankies for napkins is a Great Idea! I have quite a few hankies floating around, I can't resist them, I'm gonna move them to my dining table... Love it!
Thanks for visiting my blog, I joined you back, I am looking forward to visiting!

Sweet greetings from Frog Hollow Farm. I absolutely love how your table looks, those antique dishes and sugar bowl are just wonderful. And the idea to use the hankies as napkins was genius -they are so, so pretty. Sorry I can't help you with your tech needs, I'm figuring things out one single item at a time. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting so nicely on my new bedroom. That room was just added to our house 2 years ago, so it's larger than one would expect in an older home. Good luck with your blog! Ciao, Bella!

This is so beautifully pink... I felt more feminine just looking at it... and that's saying alot from someone who thinks of Morticia Addams as her role model!!!
