Spring Blooms Table

Things are really starting to bloom around us,
So I am celebrating with a Spring Blooms Tablescape!
I love this time of year when the greenhouses and nurseries are overflowing with beautiful flowers.
I could spend all day looking at all the different types of flowers.
I am not a great gardener, but I love puttering and trying to grow pretty things!
Although these flowers look a little more pink in the photos, honestly they match the plates beautifully!!
I thought I would have some fun using a paisley table cloth, along with checked and polka dot napkins.
I liked the look of the bamboo flatware with this combination, a little bit different texture.
Since we have done a major renovation on this house, we are in the process of digging new flower beds and doing some landscaping projects.  If they end up looking nice I will share them with you.  If  they end up being a something not so good - you may never see our attempt at landscaping!!

We have been having some very pleasant weather lately, I hope you are as well.

Thanks for stopping by!

Robin Egg Blue Table

You can tell it's spring here when the birds are busy building their nests.  This prompted my 
Robin Egg Blue Table
Since I never got to use my white cracked eggs for my Easter table I thought I would put them to use here while I reused the willow branches from my Easter table.
I love these basket weave dishes from Oneida.  I love the texture, plus they 
are just a little smaller than most plates, so they make good stacking plates.
I grabbed a really old bird house I have had for years and repainted the roof with a little robin egg blue paint, I still wanted some of the dark to show through so it would contrast a little more with the cream color of the house. 
I think the table looks really nice with my plate racks on the kitchen wall.
We had a nice thunderstorm last night, another sure sign of spring!
I hope you are enjoying the warmer weather this time of year brings.

Thanks for stopping by!
