Spring Tablescape with Pink Peonies and Depression Glass

Tablescape with Pink Peonies and Depression GlassPink peony centerpiece

Peonies have been one of my favorite flowers for years. My girls both gave me flowers for mother's day and one of the arrangements was full of locally grown pink peonies, while the other had lots of pretty purple wildflowers and daisies. I couldn't resist using the peonies and putting together a pink themed tablescape. It was lots of fun using my mom's pink depression glass and some other favorite items.

I love fresh floral bouquets but my husband has serious allergy problems so I don't usually have them in the house. But since my girls both gave me beautiful flowers for mother's day, he had to suffer for a few days. I'll go back to my pretty faux flowers soon enough, lol.

One of my blogging friends, Anita at Far Above Rubies, does amazingly beautiful tablescapes and shared one a couple of weeks ago that included some pink glassware. It was my inspiration for using the pink glasses.

I actually love using pink for accent decor, but it somehow doesn't look right except in the spring. I have some throw pillows, a vintage hooked area rug, and a few other accent pieces that I like to bring out to help banish the winter blues.

For this table, I used a vintage Venetian lace table square that I found at a rummage sale as the base. I know it's a little small for the table, but it still makes and impact and lightens the scene somewhat.

A wooden cheese board from my shop was used for the base of the arrangement. It anchors the whole centerpiece.

A few dried rose petals were sprinkled on the cheese board for a little romantic effect. My mom has a nice collection of pink depression glass and I borrowed a few of her pieced for the table. The goblets are so dainty and delicate looking.

For the napkins, some vintage green jacquard napkins and some new pink seersucker gingham napkins give the place settings a definite spring theme.

The pink depression glass plates are a little smaller than regular dinner plates so I layered them over my everyday white dishes. I used my white wooden scalloped chargers as a base for the place settings.

You can see the beautiful details of the vintage lace piece here. Would you believe that I got this piece for $1?? It had a stain on it but it came out with a little soak in some soapy water.

I'll be adding some red, white, and blue accents soon for Memorial Day and summer so stay tuned for that!
