Tablescape Thursday.......starts with some pretty birthday roses!

Time for our ever fun Tablescape Thursday posts, thanks so Susan at , http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/.
See her great blog for some fun and also the other tablescape posts this week!
This weeks simple breakfast or lunch table started with these gorgeous roses I got for my
birthday from my best friend for 36 years, Val.
The colors so fresh and pretty, just love roses!!
So they set the mood and were the centerpiece this week.

The place setting this week is a pretty but basic one.
My pale green place mats from Marshalls, our everyday flatware, my pinky peach colored stemware my mother gave me, Cabbage dishes layered with these pretty yellow flower Martha Stewart bowls from Macys ( they are new) and thrift store napkins and rings.

Those cute little birds( salt and pepper shakers) from Target are back. I didn't get these before
but when I saw they had more on a recent trip to Target I got a pair.
Aren't they tweet!

I like these cute botanical napkin rings that have a different picture
under each glass piece. I found these at the thrift store also.

And I used these pretty white on white embroidered napkins I found
at the thrift store before.

The whole table, fresh and pretty!
Thanks Val, loved my roses!

I love your green mini cake plates and I guess I do have to go to Target to look for those salt and pepper shakers as I must be the ONLY blogger without them. Love it all- great job.
