Tablescape Thursday

Presenting my first attempt at joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday which is hosted by Susan. So I hope I can get it right. This is my antique Ice cream table. I did this very quickly and late in the evening as you can see. I choose Cabbages and roses as my theme with a touch of green by way of another nature shape in the leaf bowl.

In this close up you can get a better view of the cabbage plate with the leaf bowl on it. I apologise for the dark shadows but the lighting is so poor in our house.

This picture shows the little cabbage bowl with the spoon it is so cute I just love it.


I was trying to get a close up of the sugar cubes but the sugar tongs are covering them up. They have frosting roses on them in pink with green leaves. If you click on the picture you can see them better in the close up. They are always a big hit at the tea partys.



You can almost see them here. Well that is my first attempt, I hope it is a success.
Enjoy.

I came from Leigh's Thrifty Thursday. I'm really curious about the rose platter in the background - - - that is so unique and pretty.

BTW - - - if you click on the pictures they will enlarge and then you can see the rose topped sugar cubes very well. They are adorable.
