12th Barscape - Roscher - Joanna's Garden Plates

Hope everyone had a great and glorious 4th of July! For tablescape Thursday - this week - I have another barscape! This one features "Roscher - Joanna's Garden" plates. I purchased them at Ross for $1.99 each piece. The red is what caught my eye!
The plates and bowls have "love" & "amore" written on them -

I placed them on red rippled chargers that are placed on round green placemats.  The wine glasses were a separate purchase at Goodwill - $1.06 each;

Each plate and matching bowl has a different red flower on it...

The little red & green purse-shaped, metal bird house "welcome"; designed and purchased to serve as a front door decoration matched so perfectly - it made the perfect centerpiece.

Dinner is served:  Salad w/advocados......

Smoked Brisque & Baked Potatoes.....

and for desert...Strawberry-Coconut Tres Leche Trifle....ummm ummmm good!

As always - thanks to Susan at BNOTP for sponsoring Tablescape Thursdays. Remember: "Around the world - - life is best around the table". Thanks for visiting & please leave some encouraging words!
