If you’ve been reading this blog for the last few weeks, you know that I’ve been running a fundraiser for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, featuring four pink table settings. You can read about the fundraiser HERE. This week I’m highlighting the third Chari-Table Setting, inspired by a festive book club. The colors are brighter than the other settings and the apples and vintage books incorporated are perfect for this back-to-school month.The pinks in this setting range from a mid-tone pink to a deep fuchsia, mixed festively in the colorful florals. Roses are the base of the arrangement but salvia and other flowers add cheer to the table.The Floral Fusion plates from Lenox drove the color story, set against a cream textured dinner plate and the gilded chargers.
Pink pillar candles add a rosy glow to the room. Apples and sweets were set upon multi-leveled candle holders to add interest with varied heights.The back-to-school cupcakes were a fun addition and offset the vintage leather-bound books.Fuchsia napkins from Kate Spade are wrapped in gorgeous burgundy floral napkin rings from Pier 1.A peek at the bright setting can be seen through the mirror and looks particularly festive surrounded by the pale creams in the room.The French jacquard tablecloth in all the same warm tones is from Garnier Thiebaut.A lovely painting purchased in Capri works well with the tableau.The stemware reflects similar tones with a golden goblet from Pier 1 and pale pink flutes from Crate and Barrel.In the full view, you can see the various elements working together. The florals are spread throughout the setting, while the books are scattered, as well.Grapes are served in pink depression glass dessert cups.
