Spring Table

I have another table setting for you of with different shades of purple, black and white.  The star of the show is my tulipiere, which I love and have never seen any other vase like it except in museums.

I went crazy shooting pictures of the flowers, I shot tons of pictures.  Then when I was all done I realized I didn't have a close up of the table setting itself.  Oh well, the table cloth is wrinkled anyway, so... look at the flowers!!

The table cloth is antique and was used at my wedding.  I like the plum goblets with the purple flowers.

It takes approximately 3 dozen flowers to fill up this vase. My husband said he was tricked - instead of buying me one bouquet to fill up a vase he has to buy three! Here I filled it with purple carnations and purple/green ranunculus!

I didn't realize how wrinkled this tablecloth was until post-editing the pictures. Oh well, the table cloth is still really pretty!
