Ready for a simple pink floral tablescape that would be perfect for a garden party? This little table has quite a few layers in the plate stack (chargers, placemats, bowls etc) but other than that it’s quite simple… only took a few minutes to put together!
Which is great since my Vintage Easter Tablescape had so many details it was a beast to put together!
Plus this time I decided if we were having a garden party we would really have a garden party… and added cupcakes!
Let’s have a little fun shall we?
The inspiration for this entire table was definitely the Desert Rose plates and bowls… I found them at an antique store and fell in love! I just love how they look like a flower that’s blooming.
Like little tiny flowers on each plate!
So I placed the cereal bowl on top of the salad plate (that’s two layers of petals!) and just kept going. Blush pink plates, pink buffalo check chargers and finally scalloped pink place mats (that y’all picked (by vote) on Instagram!)… that’s just a few layers of pretty pink petals for my plate flower.
Is that the right term? Plate flower? I’m going with it.
Let’s move on to the rest of the table.
- Pink Buffalo Check Chargers
- Matceramica Blush Pink Dinner Plates
- Sculpted Salad Plate Desert Rose
- Sculptured Cereal Bowl Desert Rose
- Marseille Linen Round Quilted Placemats
- Marseille Linen Napkins
- 72 Oz Pitcher Desert Rose
- Light Pink Water Goblet Old Williamsburg
- Light Pink Champagne/Tall Sherbet Old Williamsburg
- Light Pink Round Cake Stand Old Williamsburg (Came with my glasses/not 100% sure of pattern)
- Matceramica Blush Pink Footed Cake Stand
- Roseland by Reed & Barton (Flatware)
- Happily Ever After Cake Server & Cake Topper by Mudpie (I glittered mine rose gold!)
Just an FYI if you’re searching for the floral plates online make sure to specify “sculpted” desert rose since there are only a few sculpted pieces in this collection and the rest of the plates are completely different.
Alright y’all, let’s talk about these cups. I already know I love stemmed water goblets (especially vintage pink depression glass water goblets) but no one told me about sherbet cups!
They’re short and adorable and I love them.
I bought a set of 6 water goblets and 6 sherbet cups on Facebook marketplace for $40 bucks… which is a great deal when you see what these little guys are suppose to sell for!
Especially since she threw in the matching cake stand for free.
If y’all aren’t watching Facebook Marketplace for the good deals on table ware you’re missing out.
Of course, I picked these out for this specific table because the pink color looks perfect with the desert rose… and gives me the perfect place for my little napkin roses to rest.
A pretty napkin is a great finishing touch for any table… there are so many creative ways to fold a napkin (follow my quick and easy rose napkin tutorial here). Plus on this table it adds another floral element!
Alright y’all ready for the finishing touches on my little garden party? The centerpiece!
This one was easy because… cupcakes make all parties better. Since this was for a little summer garden party I thought it was the perfect solution.
I used the cake stand that matches my blush dinner plates and the cake stand that matches my cups to pull all the pinks together and added a fun cake topper to the top cupcake!
The little cake topper was originally gold but I wanted mine to be rose gold so I used a spray adhesive… and a little glitter. Just a light spritz of adhesive and then lots of glitter… repeat until the whole thing is covered for pretty rose gold happiness!
The last touches were the Desert Rose pitcher (for pink lemonade!) and a cute little bunny dish that has a matching flower bowl!
I found this little guy at a different antique store than the plates/bowls but doesn’t he look similar? I know it’s not Easter but honestly there are bunnies in the garden… I thought he matched just fine.
Alright y’all now that we’re done it’s time to add cupcakes and friends… then it’s time to get this party started! Since this is a garden party I didn’t add the cupcakes until the guests arrived… then I added cupcakes all the way around the bottom cake stand and 5 on the top layer.
They go perfectly with the color scheme and were absolutely delicious! Didn’t have any complaints. *wink wink*
Bonus Tip! When placing the cupcakes on my centerpiece I had room for 5 on the top cake stand… four around the edges and one in the middle to hold my little cake topper. But I wanted the center cupcake to be just a smidgen taller than the rest of the cupcakes… so I put it on a little resin coaster to give it a boost.
The pink circle inside the cake stand is actually a salad plate wrapped in fabric… my cake stand is recessed so my cupcakes wouldn’t sit straight. This gave me a flat surface for my cupcakes to stand on. Woot woot!
I hope you liked this little tablescape… I know I loved putting it together! I absolutely love collecting all the pieces and then seeing them come together… and then getting to share it with friends.
