A Pink Tablescape with Sarah Richardson

By 10/29/2009January 27th, 201723 Comments

I saw this table setting in a recent Style at Home Magazine and in the spirit of Breast Cancer Awareness Month I thought I’d post it.

I’m always drawn to creatively styled tables and I loved the way the napkins were simply folded underneath each bowl of sliced pink grapefruit!  And as you can see by the copy on the image, the placemats were a bargain from IKEA for $2.00.

    Pretty in pink placements I agree. There's something really beautiful about pure pink. It's association for us all starts very early in life. Even if the textures change in fabrics, clothing and softscapes in landscaping and even a sunset glows softness. Which means we're all tender on the inside.

    I got lost looking at all the tablescapes on 'between naps on the porch'. . . . now that I'm back. The first thing I noticed was the beautiful pink napkins folded under the plate. What a lovely way to place napkins at a table.

    Thanks for sharing Sarah Richardson's table, as I would have missed seeing it. Wouldn't you love to have that bay window for extra seating? TDF
    I love all the pretty white flowers around as well as the simplicity of the placesettings. "Pretty in Pink" is right!

    Two dollars for those place mats IS a bargain! Dang.

    Just goes to show good styling can make even the most modest look like a million bucks.
