Happy Pink Saturday!
I've recently shared the tables the More Creative Bee and I did for our County Fair. Today I'd like to share a special table we created in 2006 for the fair. We wanted to create a Pink Ribbon Table for Breast Cancer Awareness. Most of the credit for this one has to go to the More Creative Bee (yep, that's how she got her name - she is WAY more creative than I am).
We wanted to honor some of our friends who had suffered from breast cancer so we created a pink ribbon table.
We used a white tablecloth as the base and then ran pink ribbon along the four edges of the table. On the ribbon we applied the names of friends and friends of friends who had or have breast cancer. Strewn about the table were little loops of pink ribbon.
We used some lovely china that belongs to the More Creative Bee's mom. (She could probably have a blog just dedicated to all of her great sets of dishes.) The flatware was sterling that also belongs to the More Creative Bee's mom. The crystal is my mom's.
The centerpiece was a piece of pink Depression glass that we put a candle in and pink rose petals and more pink ribbon loops.
One of my favorite things we did at this table was to have two special friends of ours as two of the guests. Both of these sweet ladies have survived breast cancer. It made it that much more special to me that we included and honored them.
Thank you so much for stopping in on this Pink Saturday.
I hope you can stop by Beverly's How Sweet the Sound for more celebrations of all things pink!
The pictures are from 2006 and before I learned a little bit about picture taking from all the blog tips so I apologize for their quality.
