After spending most of March in the Intensive Care Unit with Dear Son, it feels good to get back to doing something fun and creative. At the hospital, my tablescape consisted of a waterproof pad for a tablecloth, that I placed on the rolling hospital tray, mainly to prevent any germs from getting on my plastic (gasp!) dinnerware that I take to the hospital for such events. I have found over the years that it's better to take my own silverware, cups and plates than to scrounge around in the hospital break rooms looking for plates. I don't own nor do I like paper plates, foam plates or anything plastic to be used at a dinner table. That's just me.
So this week, I have decided to have lunch with a friend of mine. I found these beautiful pink tulips at Trader Joe's while picking up some Ahi tuna for lunch. Lunch today will be salads with romaine lettuce, mandarin oranges, toasted walnuts and some marinated Ahi tuna steaks with a slice of garlic toast. Pink, green and cream have long been the colors in my home so it was only fitting that I create a pink, green and white tablescape for this week's lunch.
Pink tulips, a cherub and a pretty vase.
Covers from my favorite magazine, Veranda, repeat the tablescape colors.
A white tablecloth, a few candles and a simple lunch.
I hope you have enjoyed my ladies tablescape. For more beautiful tablescapes, please visit Susan's blog at, "Between Naps on the Porch".
