pretty in pink summer's over

Hello everybody I hope you all enjoyed your Labor Day weekends .Did everybody have BBQ's or get to do anything? I had to work so I didn't get to do anything.But that's ok.With Fall fast approaching and everyone dying to post for all the Fall colors myself included, I wanted to say good bye to summer in style and create a very posh table in it's regard. Also I now have a new roommate in my life and I wanted to welcome her with a really nice tablescape.

I had purchased this rose table runner after falling in Love with Valerie's tables in CandleLightYourSupper but just haven't used it.Thanks Val you have me hooked.I picked up these adorable little dessert plates ( I know what you are saying oh no she added more to her collections YEP) they are about shoes which I know nothing about but I love the colors. 

I made some little desserts to put out and put some oreos out I know but they look great against the pinks and I love them

I went with a very fancy tea well fancy for me with lots of pink stuff I gathered around the house.

Each plate has it's own saying and seeing as I wouldn't know flats from peek abos I just went with a bunch of mini shoes I already had. besides who wants shoes all over your table? I do own a pair of pink flats that I filled with pink roses for the centerpiece

Each place setting had their own special pink teacup sorry can't figure how to load cell phone pics and leave the camera behind then the lighting wouldn't suck on my pics

I remember owning an adorable little sundress like this about thirty years ago not the shoes though

I even picked out a rose pink hibiscus tea for our tea party

aren't these jeweled mini demitasse forks so cute?

Now on this pink little number can you imagine just dancing all night?

delicate little tea cups oh so sweet

the only real shoes on the table

could not find blue ballet slippers anywhere to bad.

The table was just beautiful it really bothers me to take the time get it out of my head on to a table and the camera ruins the lighting.this table is so soft and feminine a perfect table for an early evening tea.

With little delicate shoes at each place I felt like it could have been Cinderella 

as did the fine satin and lace napkins

My best Depression glasses came out to join the table too
