~~~A Pre Spring Table~~~

It all started with a new runner. I found this beautiful runner last week and knew I loved the colors and the design. AND, it was a huge bargain at $7.99! So I grabbed it quickly and started to plan a table. Spring is not quite here in this part of the country but you can tell it is TRYING to break through. We have very cold days and then one warm one to tease us. Well, enough chattering, let's look at the table. I am using these wicker based hurricanes because they go so well with this runner. And the green pillars are the perfect match too!
 Here is our stack right now. The green napkins are also the perfect green and I just placed them between 2 of the dishes. I have a round rattan charger and on that are my new GLASS chargers that I got the same day as the runner. I LOVE them, they will be so versatile! The salad plates are GORGEOUS and were on clearance at Kirklands! My green flatware completes the picture.

 The bubbles in the goblets and the bubbles on the pitcher that is holding some beautiful white tulips from Trader Joe's. The tulips were FREE since I had a gift card!!!
 AS you cabn see here there are several shades of green on the runner.
 I still love my bird votive holders. They always make an apperance in the Spring and Summer.

 The terrarium is still acting as the centerpiece but stay tuned, that is changing soon:) It is filled with moss on the bottom, a large white ceramic bird, a clay pot with a nest and another nest.

 Here's an angle I don't usually take and I don't know why. The door goes out to the deck. Can't WAIT til we will be sitting out there and I can also do tables out there!!!!! FINALLY:):) I also love seeing the table without a tablecloth cause it is so pretty.


 I decided to try this too for some added texture. Different textures always make a table so much more interesting, and pretty in my opinion:) This is just a simple twig ball resting on a candle ring which is all on a pottery and iron stand.

 I decided to make a little nest of moss for this cute crackle bird.

 Here is the salad plate, I am in love. I now want the whole set of these dishes and DID find them online!!! I actually had cut out a picture from a magazine YEARS ago that featured these dishes and found that to make sure these were the same ones. YUP, they are!!!!

 The next day the sun finally came out for a short time so I got a few shots for you!

    Happy, happy new day!

  10. Pinky,
    I love your new runner, dear friend!!!
    Your table is absolutely gorgeous!!! The view leading out to the deck is stunning, indeed!
    Your green cabbage bowls are like crowning jewelry to your stack of dishes! Of all your beautiful things on this tablescape, like you, my favorite has to be the bird votives!!!
    Thanks for sharing!!!

  11. The spring table reminds me of home! I believe that the center piece is one of a kind Pinky. I love how the table arranges accordingly! The terrarium is beautiful!

  12. Pinky, your table is full of smiles for me. I like the natural earthy browns with the soft greens as details for the white dishes. This is a beautiful table!

  13. Love the colours of this table and adore those green leafy bowls!


  14. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this tablescape!!! Green is my favorite color anyway, but that runner is to die for!! Your dish stack is beyond lovely: you're right about that salad plate (what is the pattern?) and your glass chargers!! You've really "hit it out of the park" with this one. Textures and choices are outstanding. Thanks for sharing! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  15. I really have no idea where to start with my comments, except to write that this table is gorgeous!!! What could be more Spring-like, than birds hopping around on a table and the green and white theme is perfect for this time of the year. I love the new chargers, the centerpiece, the leaf bowls - oh, my!! Home run, Pinky!!

  16. Your table runner is fantastic, and I love the way you have based the color scheme on it. Lovely table!


Thanks you for leaving your lovely comments. xo, Pinky
