Lightening Up the Table with Spring Greens!!!

Spring is the time when the world comes out of it's gray dormancy and life returns in all the shades of green! I truly love almost all greens and feel it is a neutral color whether in linens, dishes or even paint! It seems to blend with almost anything. So, I brought out the greens for the table! I kept the centerpiece very similar to last week but changed from the round basket to this green and white ceramic tray.  I am using a favorite runner with shades of green and some brown on a white background.
 The tray is bordered by a leaf motif.
 I added some green nesting material to this nest.
 This is the nest that the birds built in my wreath on the front door then abandoned. The 2 eggs in it are 2 of the 4 that she laid. So sad.
 It is resting on this tiny metal pitcher.
 My stack of dishes sit on a green and white placemat.
 A little green bird is nesting in our bowls!
 I told you about these tiny nests that I also like to use as napkin rings. When I found these at a store in Lancaster county I bought 8 and am so glad I did!
 They are holding a white and a cut out green napkin.
 I tried different flatware but decided on the brown bamboo to accent the brown in the runner.
 I WISH I had green bubble glasses, but I used my clear ones.  And the wire nest votive candles stayed on the table.
 Some gardening implements and clay pots....

 The bird S and P sit in a wire holder too.

 You know me, I had to get some shadow shots:)
 Thanks so much for your visit. I hope you are getting some nice, Spring weather! I bought some of my annuals for my pots on the patio yesterday and plan to do them today as it is supposed to get up to 72!!!
