Spring is oh so close!
When you come into our home, you generally come through the dining room. The first thing you see is our dining table.
I decided to bring some spring inspiration to the tablescape.
I began by choosing this bright yellow tablecloth – to compliment the forsythia and daffodil blooms gracing my garden and arrangements throughout the house.
I made these sweet little Bunny folded napkins.
I’ve seen these several times over and have been looking foreward to making my own. I used these lovely spring green napkins with bamboo lattice. I used my new Durathon iron – review here – to press the tablecloth and the folds to the napkins. Such fun. I also used this tutorial to make the napkins.
Fresh and Green and floral.
Make me think of spring. So I began by layering each setting with my Martha Stewart green-edged plates. Atop each plate I added my floral Homer Laughlin plates. I set my Bunny napkin among the flowers in the top right of the plate.
More Bunnies in the Centerpiece
I recently found these bunnies at my friend Maria’s store, Rooms U Love. I love their sweet, serene appearance. Between the bunnies I placed an apothecary jar with dried roses and moss stones. More stones were added around the bunnies and a few swags of silk spring flowers.
Spring means color and new life.
Displaying birds and bird nests remind me of the new life found in nature. I just love birds – all things about them – their beauty and their lovely song.
A Wish Bunny
My neighbor who shared the Redbud branches, of which I made a small vignette, gave me this Wish Bunny. He once told Dearest that he thinks I’m ‘young at heart’. I was giddy with happiness when he gave this to me and giggled like a little girl! I guess he might be right.
Spring is Fresh, Green and Floral.
This tablescape is a wonderful welcome to spring and would work wonderfully for an Easter gathering.
