Mother's Day

Mother’s Day 2020

IMG_0648Happy Mother’s Day to my mom!  This table is in honor of her.  She always loved an elegant table.  I went with traditional pink and lace with antique plates and dessert cups.

There is nothing like fresh flowers to make a tablescape beautiful!  These were given to me on Mother’s Day from a special girl whom we have grown to love quite a lot!

The light coming in through the window really made the dishes look bright!

Here is a close up of the plate setting.  The chargers fit with the green depression glass plates and pink depression glass berry bowl and dessert cup.  These were my mother’s and grandmother’s and so they make this Mother’s Day tablescape even better!

The sherbet glasses are depression glass blush pink and the berry bowl is Anchor Hocking with a diamond optic design in the bottom.  The green plates are also Anchor Hocking and the beaded plates are Candlewick.  I loved mixing and matching the dishes for this beautiful look!

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco 1The vibrant colors of Cinco de Mayo brighten this tablescape.  It is my first attempt at Cinco de Mayo and I like how it came out.

Cinco 2

The table settings include bright napkins and plates of different colors to stick with the theme of a fiesta party.

Cinco 3

This whimsical little pinata was so adorable that I had to include it on the table!

Cinco 5

You can’t have a Cinco de Mayo table without a sombrero!  Since the stores were all sold out, I had to make my own!

 

Easter, Spring

Easter

Happy Easter everyone!

IMG_0510I have been wanting to do a purple tablescape for awhile and Easter seemed the perfect time to try it!  The purple candies add a nice touch in a green carnival glass bowl.

IMG_0511

Love the green accents with the purple color!

These beautiful purple flowers were just a dollar and made the table really look like spring even though it was cold and rainy outside!

This picture shows the flaws on this tablescape – which can happen sometimes!  My one green candle is a little bent, but I loved the spring color it brought to the table!  My tablecloth ended up quite wrinkled, but we can call it vintage, right?  Hope you enjoyed your Easter holiday even though we all couldn’t  be together!

Spring

Spring has Sprung

IMG_0382

This bright and cheery table (minus the spoon askew) reminds me that even though we had snow yesterday, Spring is coming!  The eggs remind of robin’s eggs which will soon hatch, and Easter eggs which is right around the corner!

Love the little touches in this tablescape of flower table scatter and butterflies on the glasses, and, of course, the daisies!  They brighten the whole room!

A close up of the daisies.  I love fresh flowers on a table and these are the finishing touch to this tablescape!

Another view with the sun shining in on the table.  We actually do occasionally have sun around here.  It’s just few and far between, so on the days we have it, I open the shades and let it pour in!

St. Patrick's Day

Love the greens in this table with the white daisies as an accent!

IMG_0352

The plates on top are called Pastoral by Taylor, Smith and Taylor.  Love the farming scenes on them!

IMG_0353

The daisies with their green/yellow centers are the perfect compliment to the greens on the table!  And they stayed fresh for so long!

Here is a bird’s eye view of the table – very simple, but very pretty!
