Tablescape Thursday: A Hint of Spring
Thanks goodness for Susan's Tablescape Thursday, because it gives me a chance to play, and to relax. For more tablescape fun, visit Susan's blog, http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/.
This is Part I of Tablescape Thursday (more later):
Many of you may remember the gray-blue dishes that I spotted last year at a local store.
Since I'm longing for spring, I used the little garden gate that I bought the other day (with the birdhouses), and added my favorite faux silk flower, and little dog figurines.
The polka-dotted martini glasses were so cute with these dishes. You know me, I pile on the crystal, even though we will only use the water glass. I just love the way light transforms glass.
I added little topiary place card holders...here's Dr. Gollum's placesetting.
And here's yours, Mama, with a tiny cat creamer.
The gray-blue dishes are luncheon sized, and the salad plate is almost the same size.
A dog figurine guards the gate.
Two more little dogs.
The sun blazed this afternoon...and it was such a welcome visitor to the farm.
Lunch for four, a hypothetical lunch.
I'm thinking of all sorts of ideas for the gate. :-)
The chargers are made by Pinzon.
The placemats are from K-Mart.
The gray-blue dishes were made by Harker.
Next week for Tablescape Thursday, I will use the same basic dishes, but mixed up, and with different accessories. Also, food will most likely be involved for a change.
