I have decided I might have a small dinner party on Friday evening in celebration of cupid’s special day. I thought it would be nice to use some of my pink/red tabletop pieces from over at our lake house. I have pulled out a fun faux bois tablecloth made from a Brunshwig and Fils fabric called, “Wood Cardinal” .
And I will pair this fabric with my Johnson Brother’s “ English Chippendale” in “pink”. I love this pattern because it combines several shades of pink and red.
Perhaps I will fill my Johnson Brothers British Castles tureen with parrot tulips.
A generous bunch of “Silver Parrot” tulips would be stunning in the tureen, and bring in all of the shades of pink and red in both of the transferware patterns! February seems to cry out for tulips right out of the garden, but sadly I will have to buy these, as the tulips in the garden at Chestnut Cottage have yet to show their lovely faces.
Other wonderful parrot tulip bulbs for your garden that would be beautiful also are Super Parrot, Queensland , and Ice Cream tulips. Wonderful shades of pink and white and green to go with them.
I searched around for some rosy pink stemware (not at Chestnut Cottage, because there is none!) I love this ruby colored pattern from the Italian company Nason Moretti.
I have this pattern in green and adore it…perhaps I will put the ruby color on my never ending “wish list”!
I also love these beautiful pink wine glasses from Nina Campbell’s shop in London.
Finish this intimate little tablescape with your favorite sterling flatware and freshly ironed white linen napkins and you have a table ready for a romantic evening at home.
