We were teased in Nova Scotia, last week. It got up as high as 30C one day. However, this week, it is back to reality. Even though the calendar tells us it is spring, we need mother nature to agree. This table is in celebration of what we know is just around the corner.
As I was setting this table, I was undecided as to some type of decoration for the center of the smallest plate. I was thinking about a possible bird nest, plant pot, etc. On a quick trip to the thrift store with mom, I happened upon these sweet little espresso cups. Perfect! A quick little nest in each one and the table was complete.
These charger plates are new this spring from my favorite Home Hardware store. Are you tired of seeing the white plates yet? I don’t know what I would do without them.
Don’t bird nests just say spring!
Pussy willow are out! Have you picked any this year? I got these ones last week. The white lanterns are also from Home Hardware.
TIP: Pussy willow branches will last for years. I filled a mason jar with bird seed and then poked a hand full of pussy willow branches down in the seeds. Tie a ribbon, or raffia around the jar and you have a lovely spring decoration!!
I made dozens of these eggs last year from the Dollar store colored plastic eggs. I love them. If you would like to make some, read these DIRECTIONS.
Out come my little chickens again. You saw them last year on my FIRST EVER tablescape. It was my Easter table.
Nicole and I waited several days for the buds to finally open on my Amaryllis. I told her once they opened she could shoot the table. Well…with her camera. 😉 They sure were worth waiting for!
Wishing you a spring time full of fresh starts, and new life!
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! 2Cor 5:17 NIV
