Relay for Life Celebration Table

Every year, Pat and her husband participate in our local Relay for Life - one of the Cancer Society's yearly events to help make people aware that there is hope if you or a loved one have been diagnosed with cancer.  It is a chance to fight back against a horrible disease.

To mark the event, Pat created a table for one that celebrates survivors. The theme color for survivors is purple, so naturally, Pat chose that as the table color.

"The American Cancer Society Relay For Life is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease."
We will be joining Cuisine Kathleen's "Let's Dish" this Wednesday night:

A special thanks to all the local merchants who donated this year - especially the nurseries. Pat (and I) will be selling plants Sunday morning [just one of her many jobs this weekend.] If you can, stop by.


  1. Beautiful table and a great cause!

  2. This is beautiful. I have those salad plates. I should get them out and set a table.

    We've participated in our local Relay for Life. It is an amazing event. My husband is a cancer survivor.

  3. Gorgeous colors and pieces for this thoughtful table for one. The gold makes it all looks so elegant. I have the same floral plate just in the teal/aqua color.

    A joy stopping by to visit with you!
    Kindly, Lorraine

  4. Gorgeous place setting for one! I totally love the lovely purple hues to it. Great with the gold too. I'm visiting from Let's Dish.
