Pink for today....

Happy Saturday to you!  I hope you have some good plans for this first Saturday in September.  

Buttercup at Buttercup Counts Her Blessings has motivated me to dedicate this post to pink!

As pink has long been a favored choice around here (having reared three daughters, and now with a granddaughter), establishing a pink theme is quite a pleasure!

China - Strawberry Fair by Johnson Brothers, now discontinued.
Crystal - Found at a resale shop - details unknown.

Cake stand - From a resale shop.
Table linens - Napkins - from a resale shop; lace cloth - a gift many years ago.

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. It all looks so lovely the way you have it arranged! Don't you just LOVE those resale shops??!? I seem to remember your high school nickname was "Pinky," too, so that has lasted a rather long time! :-) Have a Super Saturday, Sister! Oh, and we love our orange and white today---GO VOLS!!!!

  2. I love this fancy pattern... You do have lots of different and beautiful china patterns to set a pretty table. It looks very fancy for a special occasion.

    At my dinner table, it's plain white and I rarely set the fancy tablecloth anymore, it a really relaxed atmosphere for everyone. I have no desire to be fancy anymore as it's a constant cooking and serving every day. I guess I'm plum worn out. lol...


  3. What lovely dishes! Such a pretty table setting.
    It looks like you have great plans in the works. Have a wonderful day.

  4. Nellie, I love those dishes. The cake plate is a bit unusual, I like that. You shop some what like I do...resale , love that. :):) Hope you have a great weekend, xoxo,Susie

  5. I love pink. That's a beautiful table arrangement.

    I do hope you enjoyed your day. How "purity" in Pink everything:) I "almost" made it to an auction today but alas...Enjoy the rest of your weekend, Nellie and thanks for sharing...
