Candlelight and Roses



I am so glad you stopped by because I am happy to share some good news. I was very blessed recently! I won the Monday Morning Blooms Holiday Giveaway sponsored by Crown Linen Designs and Arte Italica. 


The gorgeous monogrammed runner and napkins are from Crown Linen Designs. 
Monday Morning Blooms includes four bloggers that share their floral creations on the first and third Mondays of each month. The four bloggers are Lidy@French Garden House, Pam@ Everyday Living, Mary@Home Is Where the Boat Is, and Shirley@Housepitality Designs.

 I look forward to each Monday Morning Blooms.



Isn't the runner exquisite? I moved the chair so as not to block your view.


The napkins are so lovely and I still can't believe I won! 


Hurricane globes and brass candlesticks flank the floral centerpiece of white and red roses. They are surrounded by votives interspersed among branches of greenery. I love the ambience of candlelight.


The roses I found were so fresh and were a delight to arrange. I must admit I was in hurry mode because the light was fading. Does that happen to you?


You can see them better in this overhead shot. There are two dozen roses. I couldn't decide whether to mix the colors or have a border of one color. The border won out.


The Arte Italica rectangular tray is beautiful. The size of the Natale tray and the nice handles make it perfect for entertaining. I will use this piece so much. 



This photo and the next one had the best light in the group but there is a blooper. I'm sure you see it.


I was in such a hurry because of the light, I failed to put one of the hurricane globes back on. Did you notice?


Crossing my fingers this video works!!!!!

I am so excited to have these lovely pieces I have shown you today. 
Thank you Crown Linen Designs, Arte Italica, and Monday Morning Bloom girls! I am over the moon!

From my home to yours, I wish you a very blessed Christmas. ✨ 🎄 ✨

  2. Bonnie, your table is exquisite and your photos look like a magazine spread. I am so happy for you that you won the beautiful linens and tray. The red and white roses set off the Lenox china perfectly and your talented daughter’s gorgeous painting is a stunning backdrop. Wishing you a Merry Thursday!

    1. Pam, You made my day! Thanks for your sweet comments. I will tell Amy you mentioned her painting. I'm thinking about hanging the scones on each side of the painting that I used to have there. What do you think? Can I mix a traditional sconce with a abstract painting? I like an eclectic mix.
