Tablescape #2



Every day this week I have been thinking of my vacation.  On Saturday I will be leaving for a ten day holiday to Maui.
Today, while picking the roses for this bouquet I thought they had a very tropical appearance. 
The multicolored rose is Joseph's Coat. 

And, the exquisitely cupped yellow rose with red or apricot tinting and a tea like scent is  Graham Thomas. 
The vase is Martha Stewart I bought years ago. 

I love the refreshing look of this salad plate. I bought eight plates at the DT for $8.00 dollars.
I use the plates in the summer for salad or dessert.

This plate I bought at a discount grocery store for $1.00 dollar. So I bought eight for $8.00 dollars.

This plate and 13 more glass plates I found at a church rummage sale for .10cents each.  I love just them. 

The picnic flatware I bought at a discount store.  Very inexpensive for a set of eight.
The red napkins and wooden napkins rings I bought so long ago (25+)
You know when the wooden napkins rings were so popular. The saltcellars are antique and the salt spoons were a gift. 

My dear sweet sister gave me four beautiful wine glasses as a thank you gift on one of her visits
a few years ago.  I thought they went perfectly with my tropical theme.  I can just hear the waves now.
