A Cinderella Dinner

Ahhh, it's Thursday again...
I must confess that participating in Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch has caused me to stretch my creativity each and every week. When I take an inventory of my dishware, it does make me wonder just how many different tablescapes I can create with such limitations (in comparison to many of your floor to ceiling china closets!) When looking back over the several weeks I've been able to share with you, I realized that I had not yet displayed my full set of hand-me-down china....
So today join me for a Cinderella Dinner!
Complete with a glass bead napkin ring for you, my guest of honor!

Please, have a seat...
The china that was passed down to me came with this wonderful 6 piece setting.

Each piece is graced with petite pink roses.

And what dinner being thrown in Cinderella's honor would be complete without fairy tale pumpkins!

For more information and directions on how to make these elegant wire pumpkins
click on over to Mamie Jane's!




The glass sparkles and shines!

Homestrung napkin rings, to catch the light just right!

Candlelight adds to the night!

One last view before the clock strikes 12!!

Thank you for joining me today!
Please drop by tomorrow for Art Work Friday!

I love the china with the pink roses. And the pink and white is such a change from the browns and rusts o fall. It is lovely.

Brilliant...I love the "story" with the table setting. The wire pumpkins are wonderful (I'm going to go find out how to make them) and immediately made me think of the coach for Cinderella. It looks lovely. Believe me, I don't have a floor to ceiling china closet either!

Your inherited dishes are lovely & so very appropriately PINK for Breast Cancer Awareness month. I love all the sparkle & shine you added. It makes for a very special looking TT.
Well done!

Yup, it truly is a Cinderella dinner. You just need the glass slipper, or is it on your foot?

HI Dee Dee I have not gotten to my hand me down china yet either and I don't have a endless closet or cupboard of china either. But I do have quite a bit, now that I think of it still to show off.
