White Roses

The inspiration for this week's Tablescape Thursday at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch was a bouquet of white roses.  They were the weekly special from HEB (a grocery store, for you non-Texans) at $6! We have enjoyed them on the coffee table, but I thought they deserved their own tablescape, too.


To allow the roses to be the star attraction, I kept the rest of the table very neutral.  I used a gray silk runner, my wedding china, crystal, and silver, and some cut glass pieces that echo the crystal vase.








Here's a placesetting, with the napkin removed.  The china is Lenox Windsong, and the silver is Lunt Belvedere.


Here's a closeup of the two patterns.  I like that both china and silver include similar flowers.


Here's one more look at the roses.



Thanks for visiting this week, and check out all the other tablescapes at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch.

  11. Hi Tricia!

    The white roses were a great inspiration. I cannot believe you can buy a bouquet of roses for $6.00 in Texas. It's at least double that in California. I love the setting. As always, thank your sharing.

  18. Tricia, how elegant and fabulous is this tablesetting. Surely the roses are the star attraction but you added so much classy things to it. I love especially the candle holders and the cut glass. And your china and the flatware is so lovely to that. Very outstanding.

  26. Tricia, thank you for the kind comments on my post. The white roses speak for themselves...so wise of you to let them shine. I love that you still enjoy your wedding china, crystal, and china. I do, too! I have a post coming soon that will include my wedding china. I look forward to exploring many of your tablescapes as we travel down the blogging road.

  27. There really is nothing quite as elegant as white roses. Your tablescape is the perfect compliment to the roses, classic and elegant. My wedding china is also Lenox and I still love it after all these years. I agree your flatware and your china are a perfect match.

    Thank you for visiting me today.

  30. Hi Tricia,
    Those roses are stunning. Such a pretty table. Love the shot of the glass!

  31. Tricia, I think you and I would feel right at home at each other's houses. I love seeing you use the Moonspun crystal that I also have, but I also noticed the flower container in your header. I have the same one! I need to get mine out and polish it and use it. Your tablescape looks so elegant, and those roses are beautiful. When we were looking at china, etc. before the wedding I couldn't make up my mind between Lunt Belvedere and Old Master. I ended up with Old Master. The L.B. is beautiful. laurie

  32. I LOVE the white roses - truly an inspiration to your elegant tablescape. Thanks for your comment on my tablescape as well. Don't you just love playing in the dishes! :) I think this could get to be a very expensive habit - it sure makes me notice things more!

  34. Hi Tricia,

    I'm so glad you let your lovely roses do double duty and moved them from the coffee table! Everything looks cool, polished, sophisticated, and elegant! I love it all!

  35. Those roses do not look real!!! They are magnificent. Don't rub it in for us non-Texans that you have HEB. My older sister lives in San Antonio and I have visited HEB and love it. Thanks for your sweet comments on my boat tablescape. It was fun, although my kids made fun of me. Have a great weekend.
