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.

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!

Spring

Summer is Coming

This little sunny table reminded me that Summer would come eventually up here in the North and it will be wonderful!

The greens and yellows of this tablescape add a bright and airy feel to the dining room!

The top plates of this setting are called Pastoral by Taylor-Smith-Taylor and I love them for their picture of by-gone years of the farmer plowing his field with his horse.  (See close up next)

IMG_5047

These cute plates are reminiscent of a Currier & Ives scene.  They remind me of the Amish fields and houses I grew up seeing in Lancaster County.

Plaid, Spring

Black and White Checked Tablescape

IMG_4103

This black and white tablescape is complete with fun chalkboard glasses and a crisp, clean look.  (Although I should’ve ironed the tablecloth more!)

IMG_4104

I love this pitcher as a flower vase.  Adding a simple bow was the right touch for it.

IMG_4105

This place setting has a fun twist with the square plates turned on their edges.

IMG_4106

I like the crisp, clean look to this table and that it can be used for various seasons of the year.

Spring

Robin’s Nest Tablescape

IMG_4844

THese adorable birds nests plus the brightly colored eggs creates such a fun tablescape!  The bird salt and shaker were bought at Pier One on clearance and the birds nests were from Hobby Lobby.  With our Michigan winter weather dragging on so long, this was my one spot of Spring for weeks!

 

 

IMG_4847

The table setting has all the elements of Spring: the brown for the tree trunks, the green for the leaves and the bird’s nest.  The little flowers around the setting are hard to see but they are wine charms and place setting holders.  They add a touch of color to round out the muted tones of the setting.

My hydrangea napkin rings fit beautifully with the plates and the ivory linen napkins offset the browns and greens of the place setting.  I love how the pink centerpiece flowers bring out the pink tablecloth under the lace overlay.
