Zebra?? and Pink Valentine's Table

I found the pink and zebra wooden basket and heart picks at HL on clearance a few yrs ago. I just found the 4 tapestry placemats at Ross for $1.49!! Woohoo, and Voila! = Idea for next table!

The pink tablecloth and matching napkins were from ARC last summer, the pink chargers , black dinner plates, pink salad plates, pink goblets, and black flatware are all TS treasures. The silver candlesticks are old, and I used pink roses from a TS to make the arrangement.

The little pink hearts on the napkins were DT last yr.

It is a dramatic color combination, but the placemats were what brought it all together.

Happy Valentine's Day,

RE: Zebra?? and Pink Valentine's Table

You go girl! I would never have thought of that combination, but it totally works!

RE: Zebra?? and Pink Valentine's Table

This is so different and so fun - I like it!!
Great combination - pink & zebra..who would have
thought! Great TS finds..and leave it HL for zebra hearts!!
Love the 'Candy Shot'..

RE: Zebra?? and Pink Valentine's Table

Candy, this table is beautiful. I LOVE the zebra basket and hearts, also the place mats. Your stems are so pretty too. Oh, I really like your heart napkin rings. Pink is a favorite color of mine so I always enjoy a pink setting.

Just bought a couple of new zebra tops that we could wear and match this table.LOL


RE: Zebra?? and Pink Valentine's Table

I really like this combination. They were showing a lot of pink and zebra black and white in bedding for a girl's room a few months back.
I bet you'll use those placemats more than you might imagine.
The stems were a great find. A person might not deliberately buy pink stems because they are pretty limited compared to other colors, BUT when you find them at a Thrift Shop - who wouldn't go for it.
Happy Valentine's Day.

RE: Zebra?? and Pink Valentine's Table

The 'flower' napkins are lovely w/your flowered pink t'cloth pattern & flowered salad plates! Pink flowers & zebras!!! Who would have 'thunk!' LOL! This is quite an original t'scape! The placemats certainly bring out the zebra stripes in the centerpc! (& more pink flowers!) And black flatware, too! Great table! TFS! Jeanne S.

Ok, candy, where's the 'Green Eggs & Ham?" LOL!

WOW-purple moons

I am pretty speechless, thank goodness the others used up all the good words for your table.
hugs, Karen

RE: Zebra?? and Pink Valentine's Table

FABULOUS! Beautiful, elegant dramatic and fun!
I would feel like a movie star sitting at this table.
And to think everything was a bargain!
