Let there be White!

 There is a new white party in town! Rhondi is hosting White Wednesdays. I'm submitting an old post that I don't think too many of you had a chance to see. Stop over at Rose Colored Glasses for the FIRST White Wednesday.
Enjoy the serenity of the evening,

as you join us for a quiet repast...
amongst the beautiful simplicity of just white.
Gaze upon the many shades...
absorb the many details,
as the candles reflect upon the crystal.
Marvel at the sheer splendor of the intricate cuts in the crystal,
the elegant swirl upon the tip of the lid.
Revel in the beauty of the many shades,
as the scattered pearls cast their luster.
The flicker and glow of candlelight...
enjoy the splendor of WHITE!

Your table is beautiful and I have heard a little about your shopping adventures with Kathleen :) It's so nice that you've been able to meet.

What a scare you had! My best wishes for a full recovery for your son. Thank goodness he wasn't seriously hurt.

My jaws dropped when I saw your beautiful tablescape! Perfect! I really like the use of the pearl strands. I have some of those in various colors so I will try that out too...

DeniseMarie said...

Oh honey, I'm so sorry about your precious son!! VERY scary and can be VERY serious brain injuries. I'll be continuing this week to pray for ya'll and praise G-d he's ok. What a way to be starting school.

Well, I'm impressed you even did an entry with that going on.

Blessings and 100% recovery to precious.

What an elegant table! Love the whites and the green hydrangeas just lend such a lovely touch. Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful Wednesday.


Kathleen Grace said...

Gorgeous! One of my favorite things about all white is how it lets the form and texture take center stage. Anything but boring.

Celly B said...

Such a gorgeous table setting! All of the texture is stunning! I just love Araglin!

Sherry said...
