Tablescapes, Welcome Baby C

We had a little dinner party the other night, awaiting the arrival of Baby C.  Due at any moment DD requested a quiet dinner at our house, she was craving filet mignon.  No pickles and ice cream for DD! This gave me a lovely excuse to set a little pink table…

I didn’t realize I had so many pink things!

I put a bright pink mat under a round ruffle edged mat.  Reminds me of a swirly skirt! I used my pewter dinner plates topped with white china salad plates and a pewter baby porridger.  And because it is Easter time, and my burlap bunnies are pink, they hopped right onto the table to hold a bright pink dotted napkin.

I added some frosted glass goblets

The centerpiece was built up on a round greenish ceramic tray with a small cake stand in the center.  The stand happens to be painted with pink flowers around the edge, perfect!

I tucked green ribbons and paper white roses around the base

On the cake stand is a piggy bank, a pink and white bunny mug and a baby figure.  Tucked in and around are more heirloom silver rattles and cups and a pink baby spoon.

I got the handmade baby sign at a crafts fair, the girl that made it is actually one of DD’s good friends.

I have a few surprises in store for Easter too
