Vintage Pink

This table started with a new (to me) vintage tablecloth I found recently at a resale shop.  I love the pretty pink stamped flower design.
 
 
It's one I think my mom would have loved to use.  Her favorite color was pink.  Our kitchen at home was painted pink and we even ate off of pink dishes!
 
 
I gathered several different dishes to put a Pink Tablescape together.
 
 
I have several pieces of Pink Depression Glass and reproduction pieces and thought they would work well in this setting.  They don't photograph well, though.
 
 
This set includes a larger serving platter with handles and five salad plates.  They have a textured border.
 
 
The cream and sugar set is from Anchor Hocking.  The delicate
glasses are from Wonderful Hubby's grandmother.
 
 
I found this teapot and the bowls at a junk shop resale shop last weekend
on an adventure along the
Great River Road in neighboring Illinois. 
 
 
I love mixing and matching.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

I adore pink, I guess I'm very girly and your table is gorgeous! The table topper is lovely and yes, with such a vintage look. I love the pink placemats, which reminds me I should go look for some in pink!
The pink depression glass is always a winner!

That was a great find- the vintage tablecloth looks like it's in wonderful condition. Those pink depression glass pieces look great on it. We had our share of pink when I grew up. Our home was built in the late 50's and we had the aqua in the kitchen and pink in the main bathroom. The flowers look great with this scape too!

This setting has a real retro feel to it. At first I was going to say 50's but really it's more 40's. Lovely vintage cloth, lovely pink depression glass. And the clean spare feel adds to the nostalgic vine.

Your husband's grandmother had very good taste! I'm a pink lover, too, and there's nothing that could top this table! The tablecloth is so pretty and reminds me of kitchens where everything is served with love!

I adore your beautiful vintage tablecloth and gorgeous china.

Isn't pink Depression glass so special? I have some pieces of it and absolutely get a thrill when I get it out.

You have created a lovely tablescape.

I love the pinks too! Pink glasses are so hard to find - HELLO!! We ladies love pink. I have some Depression pinks that I inherited from my dad's side. They are so delicate and pretty.
Your tablecloth is such a great find!

What a lovely vintage table. I am totally crushing on those salad plates.

oh this is pretty, I had a double take when I first saw the platter on top of the flower garland, it looks like the tablecloth pattern is painted on the plate when you first see it through the glass!
