Rose Garden Dreams


come join the fun and see many lovely tablescapes for Susan's weekly party.
This week's letter is "P"
"P" is for pruning pretty pink roses



The last of the roses for the 2010 growing season.  My rose bushes have
all been pruned and are resting for a few weeks before they start
producing glorious blooms for 2011.


Today's tablescape mimics the colors featured in this vintage tablecloth
as a forecast of the wonderful colors of the return of Spring to the garden.
Details at the end of this post.













Vintage Metlox Spiral Candle Holders


Metlox Poppytrail Console Set included the Spiral candle holders and bowl.



Vintage Fiesta Turquoise Carafe and gravy boat





Tablecloth is vintage
Flatware - Home Goods
Goblets - Pier 1

Napkin rings - Crate and Barrel decades ago!

Thanks so much for coming by again this week to check out what's on my table!

  17. As always Candy, a beautiful tablescape!

    Wow, I didn't realize the roses needed to be pruned back that much. Maybe that's why mine don't produce a whole lot.~Ames

  25. My roses are buried under about 3 feet of snow, so I especially appreciate this reminder that they will indeed bloom again another day! The combo of brights and neutrals on the table looks great, Candy! I think the Brimfield birdie is so happy to meet the other colors of the spirals.

  27. Hello Candy,
    you made a eye-candy with this table (as always!). Love the turquoise color on the plates and the glasses are outstanding. All ist so summerly. I am, so tired of winter, I really enjoyed this look at your table.
    Greetings, Johanna

  28. The color scheme here is wonderfully vintage and creative. What fun.

  29. What a beautiful color combination. I always do that, too, when I cut the rose bushes back. I have shallow bowls of them all over the house. It's such a luxury being able to cut luscious boquets from them, isn't it?

    Thanks for a perfectly wonderful stop on our little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's letter "P"!

    You are an inspiration.

  34. You have the prettiest kitchen! I linked over from Courtney's Feathered Nest Friday. Your table scape is amazing...every little detail is perfect. The little bowl with the bird on it and the roses in it are gorgeous. Thanks for such a lovely post!

  36. What a beautiful tablecloth! I love the colors. I am also having turquoise fiesta envy… and that console bowl – gorgeous! I love the pop of the tangerine. So that is where I got my napkin rings! Someone asked me about them a while ago and for the life of me, I could not remember where I had purchased them because I have had them so long.

  44. So many of us are ready for Spring, those of you in snow country probably have a harder time thinking Spring than I do. :-) The roses are already putting on new growth, but they need to take a rest already! If they start blooming too soon, the late Winter rain ruins the first flush of blooms.

    Again, thanks so very much for all your lovely comments ... it will just be a few more weeks and I'll be posting the first roses for 2011.
