Butterflies, Birds and Grapevines - My Spring Tablescape

Welcome to what I am calling my Early Spring Tablescape which is full of butterflies, birds and grapevines!  I started out with a nature inspired theme with the cute little butterfly dishes and went from there.  I always get these ideas and then never know where they are going to lead me.  I loved the idea of weaving some grapevines through the centerpiece, but my spring tablescape was starting to look like a woodsy fall theme  - so I lightened it up a bit with the yellow paisley table cloth and napkins.  Now I think it looks like a peek of spring!

I made some perches for my birds nests and resting places for the butterflies,


and filled a sprinkling can with some sunny flowers.

I don't have a ton of dishes but I am finding a reason to add to my collection now that I have started blogging.  By working with what I have and adding small things here and there I am slowly builing up a stash to work from!  I had the Sorrento Dishes but bought the little butterly plates at Kohl's.  Of course I waited until they went to 50% off and I had a 30% off coupon plus had $10 bucks of Kohl's cash - so they were practically free! I purchased the tablecloth and napkins at Marshalls.

                                         

The sun was shinning today, birds were singing, and my lawn needs mowing.  It's Spring!!
Thanks for taking a peek.

  1. Hi Ann, Your table is delightful and so springy! I agree that the yellow was the perfect thing for brightening up things and it pulls out the pretty flower in the dish! Great deal on those dishes!! I never quite know exactly where my tables are going either. I have a general idea but often I end up somewhere else! I'm following you and looking forward to getting to know you! Linda
