Yes, you read that right!! I am so excited to show you this table set with vintage Brookpark "Pink Hyacinth" melmac dinnerware from 1956!
This is the original ad from 1956...
I LOVE this dinnerware! I love that everything is square, which goes so nicely with the check pattern on the placemats and the cubist pattern of the glassware.
This flatware was my mother's casual choice for her 1961 wedding. It is "White Lily" by Oneidacraft.
It took me forever to match this color for linens. It is more coral than pink, so I took several pieces to the fabric store and found this check which I made into placemats, and the solid for napkins, which I edged in cream.
My mother found this large pink compote at an estate sale, so I gathered some rhododendron, boxwood, assorted weeds and leaves and mixed those with some grocery store miniature carnations.
The glassware is "Whitehall" by Colony/Indiana Glass in peach, and the mother of pearl napkin rings are from Walmart. The vintage candle holders are Baroque" by Fostoria.
This table is especially for my beautiful friend Mari at "A Pocketfull of Roses." She has the most beautiful pink things anywhere and is just a wonderfully sweet lady:-)
I hope you have enjoyed my pink melmac table, and, more importantly, I hope you know that you can set a pretty table with whatever you have. It's all in the details, and that does not have to cost anything! If all you have are white paper plates, then trust me, you can set a fabulous table that your family and friends will feel special at. And that's what it's all about...making people feel special:-) Should I take the white paper plate challenge?
I'll be linking up to Debra over at Common Ground for her "Vintage Summer" party, and for the first time to Beverly's "Pink Saturday" at "How Sweet the Sound" and Susan's "Tablescape Thursday" so be sure to go by and take a look!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
