Tablescape Thursday – a little Spring


We are finally getting some warmer weather here in Florida so I decided that I needed a cheerful table for today. Susan at Between Naps on the Porch hosts this fun event each week and we all play with our dishes.


I bought the tablecloth and napkins on sale at Williams-Sonoma and was lucky enough to find the matching salad plates at another store. The sherberts are from an estate sale years ago. The white hobnail is vintage Fenton.



L1020641 A pretty basket from Pottery Barn filled with faux eggs and silk forsythia and a little chick complete the centerpiece.





Happy Spring!

Hi Carol, another lovely tablescape from you. I am quite boring as I always have plain tablecloth and napkins, yours has such lovely colours. I love the centre piece that you got from the pottery barn, with the little chicks and forsythia. I hope by Easter to have forsythia from the garden on the table, it is slowly opening with the better temperature here in the UK. Best wishes, Jackie in UK

I really love your table. My favorite is the Pottery Barn basket. Aren't they the best!

I think what I like the most are the unexpected colors in your setting. Looks like burgundy with the pink, which adds a depth to the tablesetting that you don't always see this time of year. Lovely work.

Carol, your Williams Sonoma linens and dishes are gorgeous, wish we had store here in Normandy! Your tablescape is so pretty.
Come over tomorrow, I've got daffodils for you, & for the first day of spring.

Hi Carol,
What a romantic and exotic mood you've created here! It's a table fit for a maharaja! Nicely done as always. ;)
