Pretty Pink Porch Setting for Tablescape Thursday

I have been wanting to do a setting on the porch for awhile now but the weather here has just been soooo hot and it's been so dry. However, I went ahead and tackled a small setting for two.

It was a bit windy so my plates kept sliding and you will notice a Big Ole' Blooper but non the less here we go!

I put some throw pillows down inside vintage pillowcases and folded the top over and pinned the sides.

Blooper??? Yep! forgot to place the flatware on the table.....
I used a vintage flat sheet for the tablecover, vintage glass plates from a snack set with a pretty rose floral paper plate on top with matching napkins.

Ice cold cherry limeade with some mini red velvet cakes with cream cheese frosting.
The stemware from my Mothers Day Tablescape match Plum Perfect!!

The little matchbox in the corner slides open and you can fill them with mints or candy of your choice. Great to use for favors!

Thanks for visiting!
