Happy Birthday Pink Saturday!

I'm celebrating Happy 3rd Birthday with Pink Saturday!  Make sure you click through to visit all the other party posts.

I'm having a strawberry party!  This big covered strawberry bowl was made by California's Belmar Pottery ... 1950s-1960s.  I have several of them and use them as covered soup bowls ... or salad bowls.  Isn't it cool?

For this place setting ... for a salad luncheon ... I used a pink Depression Glass 10 inch platter that has handles as the base;  a 1950s milk glass salad plate with a lace edge;  then the strawberry shaped bowl.  The glass ... Fostoria Mignon and Milk Glass Della Robbia ( I think) ... and green faux pearl handles on the flatware.  A great big pink silk mum makes a great napkin ring ... and a small Depression Glass relish tray serves well as a bread and butter plate ... but I'm actually serving dipping oils with focaccia, so the depth of the 3-part relish tray is perfect.  I pick up those little relish dishes at flea markets for a couple dollars ... so I have several.  I love using dishes for purposes other than what they are originally for!

This centerpiecee is actually from Hobby Lobby ... came all in one piece!  The floral ring was already glued to the hurricane. The candle is also from HL ... matched perfectly.  The tablecloth is from 2 seasons ago ... Bed, Bath and Beyond.
