Hi Everyone
Happy Monday

These little red roses and the wax flower branches
make a pretty bouquet
I am a  pink and white rose girl but my handsome husband picked these for me
 from our garden
{Love that man of mine}
We inherited 2 red rose bushes  when we bought this house

We were going to remove the red roses
to have our garden full of whites and pinks
I am so grateful we kept them they have the most amazing fragrance and
The meaning of red roses is passion and

Our buffet was covered with delicious food this weekend for a dinner party
a favorite treat was this amazing mango tart
it taste even better than it looks
fresh mango and cream fraiche

It is wonderful to eat dinner in the dining room
the newly painted vintage china cabinet was a big hit
and so special to have  family and friends all  together
A sweet friend brought us
these pretty pink roses 
~so thoughtful~

  the language of flowers
Pink roses mean Grace and Appreciation and White roses mean Purity and Heaven

The shells are back in the the
punch bowl

Such a fun weekend
I hope your weekend was
filled with great food, pretty flowers and family and friends
