Pink and Green Pretties

I wanted to do a tablescape with my new Pink and green dishes. I went Home Goods with a girlfriend and we found these adorable pink and green flower dishes. A cute little frog sits on top of the teapot, and the sugar bowl.
It's perfect for Valentine's, Easter and spring.
Feel free to click each photo for a larger view.


 


  
The pink flower plates look like a flower petal.
I found the green plates at Marshalls.  They match perfectly.



How lucky I was to find The April Cornell napkins that also coordinate.



Aren't these adorable?  Little salt and pepper shakers are sooooo cute!



I had these pretty pink champagne glasses.  The green Fleur de Lis glasses I also found at home Goods.



Tea anyone?  I love the frog sitting on top. I need to find the cups.





A matching platter....



Finally dessert.  I made these mini cakes from a heart shaped cookie cutter.  I baked a strawberry cake in a shallow pan and then froze it.  I cut out 3 hearts for each cake.  I piped in Strawberry frosting inbetween layers and piped a small heart on top.  I filled it with Raspberry filling. To get the swirled color effects, I divided the batter up and added red food coloring to one bowl.  I mixed in the darker color with the pink to get the swirled effect.






I found light and dark pink mini carnations at Safeway.





 Here's a photo without the flatware.  I used the Napolean Bee flatware from Horchow pictured below.



Well, I hope you have as much fun as I do when I look at these fun pretty whimsical dishes. I am hoping to find the tea cups or coffee cups.

  21. What a beautiful table you have set. Those Home Good plates are so lovely. My sister just bought the green plates --- grrrr! When I went in they didn't have any (well, at T.J. Maxx). The dessert looks just scrumptious and I have been eyeing the bee silverware for ever -- it is just perfect for this setting. Joni
