FEBRUARY CENTREPIECE PARTY


February Centrepiece Party.

Cindy from My Romantic Home is having a February Centrepiece Party so I thought I would join.
I kept my February Centrepiece basically white with a touch of pink from the roses in the vase (in last photo) and the Heart Garland placed around the mirror tray.
The white rose pieces were gifts from my sister as she knows how much
I love my Iceberg Roses.
Click on photos to enlarge them so as you can see them in better detail.

Love the way the morning sunlight creates shadows and light on these pieces.


Fabulous rose detail on these pieces





Pretty Pierre de Ronsard rose from my garden in a milk glass vase.
It is amazing the way the different time of day affects the way the photos look.
This one was taken half an hour later than the first three photos.
Enjoy Cindy's February Centrepiece Party.

Your centerpiece is lovely. I love the mirror tray. I have never seen one like that.
I hope you and your family continue to be safe from the fires. Tragic.
Have a wonderful week and Happy Valentine's day!

I have a hard time capturing the light....you did a great job of it!

I've been praying for the people of your country. Those fies are horrific!

What a beautiful centerpiece! I love anything with cutwork and that cherub is just precious. All white with a touch of pink is perfect for February. Thank you for sharing your photographs. ~Arleen

Lovely Alison - nice your roses are from your garden, I had to use silk ones as all my roses burnt from the heat

Alison how beautiful does your centrepiece look, just love the mirror tray & the pink roses with the white, perfect. Have never really thought much about table settings, here its just throw everything on & call out *teas ready*! Maybe its time to change my ways.

Have a great weekend & Valentines Day
