Pink Tablescape

Today we are setting the table for a tea party.
A tea party is the perfect pre-teen gathering according to my daughter, the expert.
She has invited three of her friends over and I am setting their table.
This would also be a great table for a Mother's Day brunch.
I am starting with this pink table cloth.
{I apologize for the terrible picture below.}

I am praying that my daughter's terribly sophisticated pre-teen friends will treat my treasured milk glass with extreme care.

I am the third generation to have these beautiful luncheon sets.
I really love them.

My mother made these cute little napkins just for the occasion.
They are smaller than a traditional 19 X 19 napkin.

I am also borrowing a few pieces of my mother's beautiful silver.
I thought the salad fork and the teaspoon was the cutest and daintiest.
I wanted to do something a little different with the silverware.
I found some sheer pink ribbon and grabbed a few leftover carnations.

I crossed the silver and tied it together.

 A sweet little bow is perfect.

A single carnation flower finished off the place setting.

A milk glass plate goes in the middle for the centerpiece.

The centerpiece is pretty simple.
I soaked Oasis in water and then added carnations and baby's breath.
I cut the stems down to a few inches to make them workable.
