French Table Setting in Pink

What I love most about Spring are the pretty flowers!  I picked up some pretty pink ranunculus from both the flower market and my own garden and put together this Spring French table setting!

When putting together this table, I initially used my Juliska "Country Estate" plates.  But then I looked up on my bedroom wall and thought, ah ha!  And the pink plates came down from the wall.

The plates are by Meissen and the pattern is "Purple Indian".  Based on the mark on the back, they are from around the 1850s!

The pink goblets are a recent antique mall score.  They are vintage and made in France.

The table cloth is antique.  It is a Madeira table cloth.  The table cloth is made of organdy, applique, and embroidery.  I've taken a close-up to show you the pretty details!

I love my vases!  I hauled back the little bud vases with people from my trip to Paris last year. The pitcher in the center is new (an early birthday present!!) and is also from Astier de Villate.  I just LOVE my new pitcher.  The other little bud vases are Juliska and are retired.

I couldn't stop photographing the flowers. They are so photogenic.  Did you notice I hid some geraniums in the little bud vases?

This was the first year I have grown my own ranunculus. They are so pretty out in the garden; I hated picking them but then I brought them in and didn't regret it!

I'll end this post with a treat, would you like a raspberry macaron?

  1. Pretty in Pink! I'm with you on all the spring flowers. They truly make me happy. I'm going to plant some ranunculus this year. I just picked up a couple of bags of bulbs and need to get them in the ground. Hope mine are half as pretty as your blooms.

    1. Jenna, thank you! Pink is my favorite color (ironically followed by black, go figure). I grew some of the flowers, had to supplement with flower market ones! Next year I'm going to plant a TON more so I don't need to buy any!

    1. Yes they were really easy to grow - just took a bit of planning! So I planted them in October and waited... they one day I looked outside and they were blooming!
