Pink Saturday---Pink Picnic In The Park

Good morning and happy Pink Saturday.

I've been busy preparing a lovely lunch, in hopes that you would join me for a picnic in the park.
Feel free to peruse the pink menu, as we search for the perfect spot to spread the pink checked quilt.

I've arranged pink gerbera daisies, in an old ironstone pitcher. The shell pink dinnerware is "Versailles" by Fitz and Floyd. The pink brocade napkins are from Waterford. The bread plates, with the pink Rugosa Rose pattern, were a flea market find. Cut glass plates and berry bowl, and vintage crystal wine glasses, filled with champagne punch, complete the tablescape.

This antique English, horn handled knife with silver fittings, will make short work of slicing the French baguette.

For a sweet finish to our meal, we have chocolate brownies with pink cloud frosting, topped with a fresh strawberry slice.

All is ready......................

slip off your pretty straw hat, with vintage pink millinery bouquet, and ENJOY!

I'd like to thank Beverly at How Sweet The Sound, for hosting Pink Saturday. Visit her for links to more pink posts.
Have a wonderful weekend,

Those brownies tasted like they were made by a Top Chef. Now that I'm done with the Pink Picnic is there a cot nearby. I'd like to take a nap.
