Happy Spring to everyone! Were you as ready for the season to arrive as I was? Some years I’m content to let Spring arrive whenever it decides to. Other years — like this one — I want it to hurry up! Finally … it’s here in all of its “blooming” glory. I’m so glad.
This week’s tablescape uses several of the Spring decorating “elements” I showed you HERE in a recent “mood swing” post.
- Blue and white
- Flowers from the garden
- Today it’s daffodils — and I first told you about ours HERE.
- Bright white linens
Layering is also an important part of this tablescape. You’ll see it in the dishes, the linens, and the candles.
I also added a “soft” layer of color to the vase — in the form of a blue and white napkin I picked up last weekend for a quarter at my local Habitat for Humanity thrift store. There was only one, but it just kept calling my name. I’m glad. It was just what I needed this week! It’s folded and “banded” around the top of the vase with a raffia tie …
… which adds a natural element to complement the rocks in the base of the hurricane candleholders.
I’ll just let you look …
I’m so glad you stopped by today. Thank you! Please come back soon!
In the meantime, I hope you’ll visit these fun blog parties …
