Spring Tablescape

Spring is here.  Leaves are starting to bud on the trees.  The grass is green.  There are beautiful shades of green everywhere and it inspired me to do a spring tables cape.

The blooms on my viburnum start off lime green before they turn to white and a white pitcher is the perfect container for them.

Blue and white is the perfect compliment to lime green.  So for my spring tablescape that’s what I used since I just happen to have a little bit of blue and white china.

A blue checked tablecloth, covers the table and then a bouquet with viburnum, dogwood and hellebores provides the centerpiece.

 No table in our house is complete without a teapot.  This was a yard sale find years ago.
 Instead of using our everyday china, Blue willow,  I mixed and matched different pieces for each place setting.
 I placed a fake green apple in the center of each plate to add a little more color.

                                                         Two little rabbits add to the whimsy.

and added some silver napkin rings ( should have polished them first) and napkins I got at Magpies last weekend

 These bird napkin rings are antiques that we’ve had since we were first married, which will be 45 years this July.  So they are really old now :)

So that’s my spring tablescape.  Oops, just noticed I forgot to put any silverware on the table.  Oh well, it was just for fun anyhow.  We weren’t really going to have a meal  there today.

I am joining Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on  Porch and Anything Blue Friday at The Dedicated House
