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)

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.

Black and White Checked Tablescape

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

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

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

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

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!

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.

Subtle Hues of Spring

This beautiful tablescape comes to us from our guest contributor Pam Jones.  The dishware is Harkleroad as seen on the 1960’s TV series, Gidget.  I love the soft green and ivory colors!

This elegant tablescape is set off by flowered glasses and beautiful gold cutlery. Love that th green brings out the green leaves of the flowers on the water glasses.

This table setting is set against a backdrop of ivory napkins and chargers, bringing out the beautiful greens in these dishes!

This Harkleroad creamer and sugar set are one of a kind and are a throwback to the 1960’s.

Spring is Coming!

I couldn’t wait any longer even though the snow was still on the ground!  So, here is my first Spring tablescape!

Combining pinks and greens makes this table pop with spring colors!

Green hydrangea napkin holders complete the look on the table setting.

I added some tulip buds to the center to remind me that the flowers of Spring are coming up soon! I alternated pink and green charges under the white plates for a touch of Spring color.
