Spring Chicken Tablescape

Yep!  I heard it!!  While celebrating my 55th Birthday - that phrase "she's no Spring Chicken" was uttered!  Too late - they couldn't take it back.  I really took it to heart - or I should say - I took it to the table!  That was the inspiration for my Spring Chicken Tablescape!
So here are a couple of old hens pulling off the Spring Chicken look.
It is fresh bright yellows and lots of crisp whites.
I like the way the whole room looks bright and ready for spring.
The only thing new here on this table are the patterned yellow salad plates from Pier 1 Imports.  I love them paired up with the checked border plates I bought several years ago.
I wish I had real forsythias to use for this table, but since we still have a few remnants of snow hanging around, my forsythia bush isn't even close to blooming yet.  I had to settle on using faux stems.

These little guys just had to crash the party!
So, Spring Chicken or not - I think I showed them I still have a few moves left in me!
We welcome any kind of Spring around here, chickens or otherwise!

I will be linking to the following parties:

  2. Oh Ann, I just came back from Inspire Me and your table setting is gorgeous with in all yellow, and perfect for spring! I'm pretty sure I have the same salad plates, except my set of dishes come in four colors, including the yellow...if you have a chance you can check mine out and see if they are the same!
    Happy birthday sweet friend and many blessings for your new year of live and always!

  6. I love that nest centerpiece with the roos and chick...by the way, they're awesome!
    Yeah, I did a serious check of our plates, but boy, they must be from the same make. My entire everyday china has a Brand of the store they have them put specially for them, I guess, therefore, I don't know where they come from! Anyway, both patterns are so pretty, right?

  9. Isn't it fun to make lemonade from lemons? Your inspiration, though a tish insulting, is brilliant! I love your table, the new plates (and the old), your chickens and eggs. Everything is so cheery and springy and fun! I enjoyed seeing pictures of your hutch, as well. Your room is beautiful. Enjoy!

  13. Laughed and laughed with you on this. My doctor always says, "Well, you are getting to that age". What, what age is that, sir???? All right, I am getting to that age, but you have turned that lemon into a fabulous lemonade of a table. Love the chickens and all of the beautiful yellow. It is so sunny and happy. None of us can feel old looking at this one, Ann!!

  14. I am so in love with this beautiful yellow and white table. The "old" hens look as if they are enjoying themselves presiding over this wonderful cheerful tablescape.

  15. Ann, the yellows and whites make me feel like it's Spring, even though I'm still bundled up in my warm clothes. What a cute idea to use the "spring chicken" phrase for a tablescape. It takes someone with a great sense of humor to do that. Belated happy birthday. laurie

  16. Right on, sister! Right on! We may not be a Spring chicken, but we sure know how to live!!! And how to do a Spring table!!! Wow, Ann...this is beautiful! It's definitely bright, full of color and life, and the pattern mix is GREAT!!! I love the 2 plates!!!

    We still have snow going on here, too, as of yesterday. There won't be anything in bloom for awhile. Whether the forsythia is real or faux, it sure added a nice touch to each place setting!

    Humorous AND pretty!!! Way to go, girl!!!
