When In Doubt, Include Pink

It's been so hard trying to figure out what to put in the new China cabinet.........kind of like staring at a blank piece of paper ( or screen) and not knowing what to write.
Should I go seasonal and put in the gold plates and some pumpkins? No, too predictable. How about all white? Ummm.....too boring. All of one pattern? Really boring! But one thing I've learned from all the Pink Saturdays.........
throw in a little pink.
It works.Ppsst!
That pretty, pretty princess box is a little SURPRISE for next week.
ssshhh.....keep it under your hat.

I really do think it is beautiful...and that touch of pink just is perfect. BUT...For the fall, I think if you went with the gold plates, and added some fall garland weaving in between them...it would look fabulous, too. But, I LOVE seasonal decorating, too. And, if you picked up a couple of seasonal plates like at TJMaxx or Stein Mart, you could add those, too.
Just a thought, if you like to change things around.

Holley, your china cabinet is exactly like my parents maghogany china cabinet. They bought theres when they got married in 1947! My father passed away and my Mom says I can have it any time I want. I cannot wait to go get it. When I saw yours, my heart skipped a beat! I don't know what you paid for it, but it is truly a beautiful piece of furniture!
Love, Ann
