Lightening up the Table

Did you see my last table? You can see it here: I loved that table but I wanted to lighten things up. Our RAIN has finally stopped and the 50's have turned into HIGH 80's!!! It was 86 yesterday! But I am NOT complaining:) So, I looked around to see what I could do simply. Here's what I came up with. Little birds are nesting on 2 candle rings, my twiggy ones used on the last table and these green ones.
 I kept the same rattan wrapped glasses and added the green goblets.
 The brown rattan chargers are from Walmart! They are very sturdy, I love them.
 I decided to mix up the flatware and mix my green and white sets. I think mixing things up keeps it interesting and fun!
 Everything is based on this pretty runner.

 I kept the same centerpiece cause it just works. I did add some clay pots beside the basket.

 The white ceramic birds and the bird tea light holders also stayed.

 It was a cloudy, rainy day when I took these pictures so I will add some sunny shots hopefully today.
 My stack is a green round placemat, the rattan charger, my FAVORITE embossed white dishes, a green patterned salad plate and the nest!
 The white birds in the metal holder work perfectly too.

 The wire nest tea light holders also remained.

Thanks for stopping by. As I said, we have gone from cool, rainy, Spring right into HOT summer weather around here. It is so nice to be able to go out on the deck with my breakfast and sit on the patio in the evening. I love it!
