Satin Stitched Roses

I keep a nice vintage rose embroidered tablecoth tucked away that's perfect for an easy celebration. It fits well on a vintage pop up folding table that I keep handy in my dining room. Since the table is nothing much to look at, I have draped it with a lacy underskirt tablecloth. (The one from the fleamarket that I showed in a recent post.)

The colors are perfect for a girls birthday party, or a ladies tea. The handwork alone is a good conversation starter. To me it has a dressier party feel, and is great for spring.

The square cloth underneath is the perfect size to conceal the metal legs of the table and makes the rectangular cloth work better on it. Anyway, I love a layered look.

You're going to think that I own stock in Little Debbie, but I really just find them so cute. I could spend an hour baking, but my kiddos like them every bit as much. You don't have to worry about leftover cake either. (Like that's something to worry about.) Lately they have a darling Mary Englebreit graphic on them. Perfect for a not too serious little party.

I hope your weekend is headed for fun!
We have a cold blustery day happening here.
Thanks for stopping in!

I think someone put a whole lot of love into that embroidery. It is perfectly beautiful.
I like the way your bought cake says cream filled cake on the packet,not some fancy name. Simpler the nicer I think. They do look delish.
I have been treasure hunting today and found the sweetest pale pink pulled thread work table cloth. Will put it on a post soon.

Such a pretty tablecloth and perfect for a tea! I often have little tea partys with my granddaughter and Little Debbies. The white cream cakes are my favorite and they do look like they are made for a tea party. Love your silverware and the lace undercover for your table. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

I love these embroideried pieces, and this rose pattern is gorgeous. The silverware pattern is stunning as well, the heavy texture you used for this table setting is beautiful.

So pretty Jacqueline. I love the pink roses and it's simple elegance. Lovely as usual.

Absolutely elegant inviting romantic table setting. I love that tablecloth, Jacqueline.

I hope you will pop by to help us bring 'angel love' for a young girl who is sick.

Thank you.

Looks like you are ready for Spring with that tablecloth. I might buy those little debbies just for the box:)

Olive Cooper said...

I have not bought Little Debbie's in years but see the charm in that package. I used to do satin stitch like that and might dig up a piece and show you sometime. That tablecloth is lovely.

I always look forward to the Little Debbie Valentine cakes I must confess. Beautiful roses on the linens.

Haworth said...

What a sweet table, Jacqueline. The roses are so lovely with the white china. I have a few small tables that I use now and then for "tea for two" get-togethers. And it gives me a chance to use some of the smaller hand-worked table covers I inherited from aunts and grandmothers.
