Before I get to the last of the pink table settings from my Chari-Table Settings fundraiser for BCRF, I want to thank all of the generous donors who made this fundraiser so successful! I well surpassed my goal and raised over $1300! I will leave the page open for a few weeks coinciding with October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and if you’d still like to participate, the direct link is HERE. Now on to the fourth and final setting for the month.This setting made its first appearance in June, as my very first blog post, but I’ve added a lot more photos. It was my table setting for Mother’s Day and hinged on the concept of mis-matched vintage china in a range of feminine pinks.The floral arrangements included my beloved peonies, along with blush roses and delightful lilacs.At the center of the table I placed French macarons in my color palette, along with draped pearls and a cameo. The place cards I made to match the delicate flowers found on the china to wish the guests a Happy Mother’s Day.You can see the mix of varied patterns, unified mainly by their adherence to the floral theme and a general spirit of a garden toned color story.Jewels were draped amongst the candlesticks, calling to mind a woman’s dressing table.The blush stemware was at the ready for wine and champagne, while the teacups awaited their elixirs, as well. Ruffled pink napkins from Pom Pom at Home help add a cohesive pink touch.The arrangements were displayed in floral china pitchers while varied candlesticks lit the scene.A touch of yellow added a sunny effect and the gilding and the floral detail tied into the theme. The white damask tablecloth is from Ralph Lauren Home.Each setting presented a new surprise, as no two were alike. Bejeweled napkin rings are from Pier 1.Gilded chargers from Pottery Barn grounded the whole setting.Most of the china was purchased at antique shops here and abroad.It has been an amazing few months since I first posted this setting. I’m delighted to have been successful at raising money for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Now that all the settings have been posted in detail, I encourage you to return to the voting page to vote for your favorite. VOTE HERE!
