~~~Feathering Our Nest, Morning Room Table~~~

Good Saturday afternoon. I don't know where the morning went!!! Yesterday I was having some friends over so I spent the night before and the moring yesterday SPIT SHINING the house. The kitchen and Morning room are now dressed in their finest Spring decor:):) I wanted to share some of that with you. Here we go: This is the fabulous faux terrarium that I found at TJMaxx a few months ago and had it filled with bunnies for Easter. Now that I am "feathering our nest", I have brought out the BIRDS, nests, pots, and birdhouses. The air plants that are perched on the top are from Robin of All Things Heart and Home blog. She is the SWEETEST, most generous friend!
 I placed this birdhouse inside and on a little stand to bring it up some.
 This large bird used to live on my windowsill at the other house.
  The whole terrarium is lined with some moss for now.


 I love the 2 topiaries, and on each side of them are these cute wire cages that I found last year. They sit in a nest with a bird who is watching over her eggs. See the little bird on top too?

 A close up of the runner. I have 2 of these runners. I love the colors and design.
 The S and P are watering cans.
 I used a green striped placemat, my square wicker handled chargers, a detailed white plate and my pretty printed salad plates all topped with a twiggy wreath (that I also use as napkin rings) and a bird!


 The white marbled flatware is our everyday flatware for this season.
 I paired it with a printed green napkin. I like all the different hues of green on the table. It reminds me of everything outside that is greening up right now!




So, this will be our table for the coming season. It is simple but so pretty to me. I will share the rest of the kitchen soon. Have a GREAT weekend everyone. We have a day OFF today and are then going to our daughter and SIL's for dinner! XO, Pinky

  19. I really love this table setting! I like the texture of the willow chargers and the little birds nests on the plates. I love the green and white against the brown table and chairs. Which, brings me to my favorite thing....your table and chairs! Just gorgeous. If my chairs had been as pretty as that I would've never had to paint them.

  20. Hi Pinky, thanks so much for the compliments on the ferns. Once mine go out to the front porch 6 of them are in the blazing sun most of the day. I watered them until the water runs out so they won't root rot, give them a spray bath until they spin. The others go on the north side of the house and don't get direct sun and they seem to do just as well. I give them a good dose of fertilizer once a week. Sometime I truly think who the grower was where you purchase them from. Mine all came from Walmart again this year. I took them outside today and gave them a big ole drink. The over night temps are going to be in the 40's and around here the Boston ferns don't care for the cold. Once the temps hit 55 at night they go out on the front porch for the season. I can hardly wait. I also like the asparagus fern. Best of luck to you darling, keep me posted. fondly ~lynne~

  32. Very cute Pinky! I especially love the centerpiece created along the backside of the table lengthwise. That is a great idea for a table for two. I love the green and white, it's one of my favorite color schemes. Your birds are perching so pretty! Great tablescape!

  33. Love the bird cage and all of the other bird items. I have so many air ferns that, and I hate to say this, but throw them away. They are everywhere. I put then in so many places, but there are just too many.
    Have a great day,
    Bev

  39. "Worked All Zones Award" is the same concept with time zones.
    It was an entertaining radio program that played the music people wanted to hear combined
    with his groovy upbeat personality. Another radio commercial production tip
    to chew on is to make sure the audio quality is excellent on any spot your produce.
