Dining with The Birds!!!!

Spring has FINALLY arrived. We are having some lovely temps now, mid 60's and Mon. and Tues. may hit 70!!! I am very excited. I put all the Easter décor away on Sat. morning and got out my birdcages, gardening things etc.  I found this table runner a few weeks ago and fell in love. So, I decided to do a table around the runner. It is fun, organic but somehow restful to me. I hope you like it!!!
 I love the burlap TYPE material and the script!
 I used a square rattan placemat/charger, a creamy plate with a rubbed brown edge, a black and cream flowered plate and a black and cream scroll plate for the stack.


 Pots with nests and eggs on one side of the centerpiece. A bird on a rock sits standby.

 I gathered some gardening elements in a favorite round basket tray. Some clay pots, a nest, gardening tools, a pitcher.
 I draped a burlap type napkin inside the basket to add some softness.
 An arrangement of greens in a clay pot under a wire cloche sits in the basket too.
 A green bird sits on a metal stand with a little fluff to resemble a nest.

 My little garden wagons make another appearance.
 The napkins are gathered with a bird napkin ring. Cream flatware is what I am using. I considered my black handled flatware but decided on the cream for a lighter, Spring look.
 I love these wire, nest votive holders and placed them in a twiggy nest (that I have used in the past as a napkin ring!)
 My rattan wrapped glasses add another texture on the table.
 My Target S and P sit in a wire nest type holder.



 I found these burlap pillows with vegetables on them last year. They are perfect at this table!
 Carrots, eggplant and turnips!


 When I took the pictures it was a cloudy day. Then the next morning the sun was shining brightly, so I took a few more pics. You all know how I LOVE shadow shots:)




 This is one of my favorite pieces. I found it at Kirklands years ago. It is a beautiful message, to me.
Thanks for your visit!!! I am sharing my table at these parties:

  9. Happy Spring morning to you Pinky. Your charming tablescape resplendent in all of it's lovely rustic bird decor is a delight to look at. I love how the charm of the new table runner is echoed by the use of the rattan and the burlap like napkins.
