This one's for Pinky :o)

On my Met Monday post, Pinky, a great friend from RMS, commented that she loved the makeover of the dining room, but was wishing that I had pictures of the tablesetting and was straining trying to see it . Well, here it is, especially for YOU....Pinky, with love:



































These beachy dishes was a lucky buy it a consignment store the day before I went to Charleston, to do my makerover. Hmmmmm.. I might just have to "borrow" then next time I visit. ;)





























Bon Apettite Everyone...


Hmmm...nice dining room, now if we could just get a cook!
Go over to the ever popular Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch and enjoy more tablescapes, as well as "Let there be White II" at Cuisine Kathleen's. AND....I'm participating in The Beach Party at The Shabby Chic Cottage.net

I'm so glad you did this. I wanted a closeup also! I think you probably need to take those dishes home and break them in :) I love your centerpiece!

Pinky said...

OMG!!!! I am so HONORED!!!! Thanks so much for sharing this GORGEOUS table! The napkin rings are genius! I am posting a beach table next week too! Thanks again, Rose. Love the dishes, centerpiece...everything!!!!!!!!!!! Hugs, Pinky:)

Shelia said...

Oh, Rose, this is beautiful! I'm so glad Pinky asked to see your table. Now I know this is all beachy and everything, but when I first looked at it ~ I saw wintry - whites and the the pale blue of icicles. I know I'm a silly, but with a few exchanges this could be a scrumptious wintry scene too.
Everything you do is beautiful.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I love the beautiful beachy table! If both daughters are in dental school no wonder nobody cooks! You have such a great eye for design. Cindy

Charlene said...

Love those dishes & all the shells! But, as I have told you in posts past... I am into the beach/shell theme BIG TIME right now. These dishes are great. Differnet than my new shell dishes from Marshalls.

Julie said...

Hi me again, Thanks so much for stopping by.... How did you get both your gils to go to the same school at the same time? Are the girls twins? M.U.S.C. is a great school...Are they both going to be Dentist? SSSHHHH I will let you in on a little secert that I have not let out in blogville yet... My husband went to M.U.S.C. College of Dental Medicine. His practice is in Summerville about 30 miles from our home. Top of his class, #3out of a class og 48.
Not one of our girls wanted to go to M.U.S.C., Our 15yr old daughter is thinking about it , but maybe Clemson for their Engineer program. Is your husband a Dentist?

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

This is such a lovely dining room and that tablescape is gorgeous. I need to copy it. I live an hour from the beach in a farmhouse, with hundreds of chickens...hence we have farmhouse style. BUT and it is a big BUT I would love my dining room to look like this! You have done a gorgeous job on decorating this area. Can't wait to see what else you do.
Blessings,
Debbie

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Everything is beautiful!

...and a stunning seashore Santa too!

I am enjoying all the beach parties! And so glad to find your here. I noticed that you have two girls (and I agree, they are gorgeous) in dental school! We do too! How fun is that? We'll see if our son will follow...he's thinking medical, right now :o)

Blessings & Aloha... I'd love to have you take a peek at my beach party... & please let me know that you were there with a comment.

bj said...

Rose...where are you???
I'm getting worried now....Hope everything is ok...

kiakai / Kelly said...

Beautiful post...as always.
Thanks for stopping by the chair post. Another one down...too many to go.
I hate to say this but I get my fabric from a woman at our local flea market. She's sort of hit and miss. It's great when she restocks, but sometimes she gets busy and the same stuff is there every Wednesday. I don't know what I'd do without her. I wish everyone could shop there.
Kelly

kiakai / Kelly said...

Ah! I thought I remembered reading you werer from here. But now you're in Atlanta, right. Well, she's at the US 1. Not the Barnyard. Wed. 8 to 12 and weekends. She said some of her sources are moving to China. Hope not. She's been there for 20 years. Every now and then she has really GOOD, expensive fabric.($4.00) But not unless she re-stocks. You never went to her? My kitchen drape fabric is at Hancock right now for $30.00. I was excited when I saw she had that one .
Small world.

Hi darling, I'm finally getting around to everyone.. "major" computer problems, any hoo... This is just too gorgeous for words.. so classy and elegant.
I watched Design Star last week I was sorry to see the girl go.. this week should be interesting. I would be hard pressed to watch a designer on t.v. every week with all those tatoos.. what do you think? Hope you're having a super Saturday..hugs ~lynne~

Wow, what a beautiful dining room! Love it!
