Project Makeover for a Tea Party





My aluminum tray, I found at an Antique store in Philadelphia, Mississippi. Today is the first time I realized the design on this tray is a tulip, for when I brought the aluminum tray home, I placed my pink tea rose  tea set on the tray, and never looked at the design on the tray.  I collected  aluminum trays and bowls, to use for my daughter outdoor wedding. 
Advantage is I got to keep all of the aluminum tray and bowl to use at home! 
 Placed on the aluminum tray is, my pink rose tea set, 
my sister Gloria, gave to me on my Birthday, seven years ago.
 How do you like my tray make over?

I bought these little purses and old fashion shoes,
 at the Dollar Tree, 
on sale, four for a dollar.to use as place card holders. 
I did not like the gold color,so I painted them in pink. 
I use the caps from spray paint cans to add my paint in, then I can use the inside circle and the outside for two separate colors. 
How do you like my place card make over? 
In this table setting I used the purse as part of the centerpiece, the shoe is the place card holder.
 Later the purse can be used as a place card holder, using the pearl handle.
How do you like my new made over Tea Party place setting in pink?
