Blush + Navy For Mother's Day


Immediately after my big box of Creative Candles from the Summer Collection arrived I wanted to use them.  As in immediately.  I pulled the candles out and started setting them in piles to use them for different places and different tables, I was so excited.  As I shared Creative Candles are incredible and the colors are so very pretty and I was thrilled to have so many colors, sizes and options at my fingertips.  The box arrived the week of Mother's Day and I was tasked with setting the table for the weekend while the Hubs + kids did the cooking and the rest of the preparations.  When my husband asked me to manage the table I was thrilled, and so prepared. 



I immediately pulled out the Barely Blush candles and a few of the navy and decided that navy + blush pink was a perfect color palate for Mother's Day.  I paired the candles with a blue and white tablecloth and some of my favorite blue bowls, some pink glasses, pink seersucker napkins and some of my silver.  I loved it immediately.



I have mixed silver and gold for a while and I really like the result.  I used some of my brass candlesticks along with silver mint julep cups and flatware and a few dainty vintage silver vases.  I like the mixture of the silver and brass, it allows me to use what I own and enjoy both together.


I pulled some of my favorite blue + white porcelain and filled them with blush roses, both spray and larger ones and carnations.  I love how it turned out, they are so pretty together, and the carnations add the perfect amount of extra texture.  All those ruffles are so girly and were perfect for Mother's Day weekend. 💮



I filled this tray with the flowers and my collection of candles and it instantly became a new favorite.  The tray is a great size and the oval is so pretty on our rectangle table.  I really like the mixture of the blush + navy + white candles.  This is the first time I have mixed three colors of tapers together, but I can tell it will not be the last time. I really like the mixture and anything that gives me more color makes perfect sense to me.


When I chose colors for the Summer Collection I knew I wanted pink to be included ... and the Barely Blush is a fabulous pink, it may be a perfect pink.  I have the hot pink tapers as well and I will be pairing the blush and hot pink as well.

All the colors please and thank you. 



I am obsessed with that flower combination ... you will be seeing it on repeat for sure.


The perfect addition to any table, a fabulous and yummy bottle of rose.  When I was in Charleston our darling photographer gifted us this Palm by Whispering Angel.  The label is amazing and I don't think it could have been more perfect for me.  I brought it home, chilled it and we enjoyed it for Mother's Day lunch.  They made me a yummy meal and I ate every single bite sitting at this beautiful table.  I pulled out and used things I already owned and was so excited to see things I purchased at different times come together so well.  It is true, buy what you love and it will always work.

This is the first table I set with the candles from the Summer Collection and it is just the beginning.  I am so excited about this partnership and I love playing with all the candle options, color pairings and sizes.  It is so fun ... making setting tables, which is already my favorite thing to do, even better.

Since I added blush + navy to my favorites list, up next ... Mango, Navy + Aquamarine.  Yes please!

Happy Monday!
