Lightening the Table with Spring Touches

Even though there is still snow on the ground (we got another 2 inches overnight) I am LONGING for Spring so decided to lighten up the table with some Springtime touches. Birds and nests say Spring to me and also fresh herbs. In this case my herbs are depicted on my plates! So, I combined all those elements for a new table setting.I didn't do a huge stack of dishes. I started with a very plain tan tablecloth, then a rattan placemat that is trimmed in green. I am sticking with "Spring Green" as my color base for now. I am reposting this today because I have not had a chance to do a table, the tropical table is still set. SPRING is coming to the table net week so til then I thought I would reshare this table I did last year. And BTW, we got 9 inches of snow yesterday (Thurs.) Spring IS coming, I know it:):):)
 I used a square white plate with a brownish edge, then a square green plate, one of my herb plates and a footed bowl.
 All topped with a simple napkin in a white ceramic ring.

 I also decided to mix and match my flatware, "just because" as Pat would say:)
 I just received these adorable bird S and P as a gift. I LOVE, love them!!!!! Thanks, Denise!!!!!! They are in a wire basket that resembles a nest to me!
 And these are my wire nest votive holders. Great pairing.

 The candlesticks also have that brown edge rubbed look too.
 There are 8 different herb plates but I used the parsley and the dill plates today.
 The terrarium has also been restyled.
 I just found this bird at Kirklands yesterday when I spent the day with my daughter. LOVE those days.
 I added a clay pot on a stand with a nest on top. I love the added bit of burlap and the speckled eggs.

 The base of the terrarium is filled with green moss.
 The  distressed look of the birds, terrarium and S and P all look beautiful together.

 The white candles on the white holders are surrounded by a leafy green candlering.

 This little bird flew right over to the table from the hutch.





 Thanks so much for stopping by. I can't wait til the temps outside reflect the warth inside. So looking forward to opening up the house and breathing fresh air:) Til then I will improvise. XO, Pinky

  8. I have almost identical place mats; mine are bamboo, edged in green.
    I wish I could post a photo in the comments - my dishes are green too, with frogs and dragonflies and lotus blossoms on the edge.
