October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in honor of my dear friend Jen, who has been battling breast cancer this past year I decided to do a pink tablescape.
I wanted to find a pink table cloth, but with it being fall and everything, pink table cloths were impossible to find. So I went to Wal-Mart picked up a twin flat sheet for $3.00 bought some pink fabric dye and made my own pink table cloth, then I added a piece of sparkly tulle over the pink sheet
I have also been all over town to find some pink dishes and I finally found some with pink flowers @ TJ Maxx
I found these fushia napkins on the clearance rack @ Pier 1. I used wired ribbon and a silk flower for the napkin rings
They look pretty on the plates
I bought some pretty pink roses at the grocery store
Then I saw this little tutu I bought my niece and thought it would dress up the flowers
I was on the hunt for anything pink and I saw these pink disco ball ornaments I thought they would look pretty on the table.
Then I added candles and some sparkly stones and glasses of pink lemonade to the table
I discovered tutu's and candles do not go together, so I had to remove the tutu before I lit all the candles. Do I have too many candles? Is there such a thing as too many candles?
A view from the top...
This table was so much fun to do I just kept make changes all week long
Found some pink votive candles today
