Tablescape #46 - Hummingbirds Love Pink Flowers

Hello Everyone,
The Hummingbirds are busy and it's time to celebrate ...
Pink Saturday's Fourth Birthday!!!

I get so excited when I have a reason to find some fun plates and to design a tablescape.
When I saw these darling plates at Tuesday Morning I had to buy them.  
We have two hummingbird feeders outside our window and it is such a joy to watch the birds fly up  to the feeder and drink the sugar water. We have lots of hummingbirds in our garden too.

I do question the placement of the hummingbirds. One upside down is interesting.

I have been wanting some grape vine wreaths to use as tablescapes, so I decided to make my own from my grape vine in the garden.  Ha - Ha. I started the project and after about an hour with no success I decided my time was more valuable and I found these beauties at the Dollar Tree for a buck a piece and

  1. Oh Betty this is GORGEOUS! Those hummingbird plates are "To Die For"!!! LOVE,LOVE,LOVE those little birds! Hmmmm, I think I need some plates with them on it! I also love your details(all of them), the twig wreaths raising the plates is PERFECT!!! HAHAHA, I agree on making the wreaths. I can picture your attempt though!
    Thank you for the ideas "AND" a few new things on my wishlist!
    Have a fun week,

  2. Hi Betty,
    Your table is sweet with the hummingbird china. I love the twig wreaths beneath the plates and the 'nest' you created! Thanks for sharing and enjoy the rest of your week.


  3. Hello Betty,
    Those plates are so lovely. I love Hummingbirds and we too have so many. They dive bomb each other at the feeder. I have a pair of humming bird salt and pepper shakers, but I dont use them as I'm afraid the beak will get broken. These are very nice..
    have a great Holiday weekend..

  4. What a lovely table setting and plates! Beautiful post here! Thank you for linking to Tea in the Garden!

  5. Hi Betty, Love your sweet hummingbird plates. Great flatware too. What a pretty tablescape!

  6. Hi Betty,
    How lucky you were to find the hummingbird plates. Your tea setting is so pretty. It is so much fun to set a pretty table! We don't have a Tuesday Morning where I live, but when travelling I love to stop there! Have a good evening.

  8. Oh, I love your hummingbird plates. I photograph hummmingbirds a lot around here and they never cease to amaze me. Such a pretty table. I love your flatware too. Have a happy weekend!

  9. Oh my gosh I love those hummingbird dishes!

  10. A lovely tablescape, and I adore the humming birds. That one isn't actually upside down - it's got its wings above its head, and its head dipped down - they do go into the most amazing contortions. Fabulous collection of plates, love them.

    Happy Pink Saturday!
