Tablescape Thursday...or...A Sunny Spring Tablescape

 Welcome to Tablescape Thursday with our hostess with the mostest Susan at Between Naps on the Porch! Be sure to stop by her blog to see one of her beautiful tablescapes and to find a list of this week's participants!

 This week I am trying something a little different...I am mixing some apple green with my usual blue and white plates to add a little feeling of Spring!

I am also showing you my tablescape at a different time of day! My dining room has a huge palladian window that faces west and lets the sun pour in on my table...

...so when the shadows started creeping across the tablescape, I decided to take advantage of it!

Unfortunately, my co-host Baby Kitty was too busy enjoying the beautiful afternoon to come indoors, so I am left to host alone!

First, I am sure you have noticed that some of those Pier 1 bunnies on a stick have jumped onto the table to enjoy the sunshine! They have been very busy hopping from blog to blog and leaving a trail of little bunnies as they go!! It seems that my blog is no exception! They are nesting in some little pots that were a gift from a friend!

I also found these wonderful green bubble glass goblets at Pier 1 in the clearance aisle for only $2.00 each! I love the way the sun shines through them and leaves a sparkly green shadow on the table!

I am using my mom's Silver Flutes flatware from Towle once again. I love its simplicity!

I found the blue and white plates at a little shop in Duluth, Georgia, several years ago. I love the fact that they don't match. There are actually four different patterns, but they all have the same lacy shape.

Here's another one! Each plate has a little white circle in the center that seemed to be begging for a bright green pear!

And still another...this one is my favorite!

And finally the last one. Don't you love the effect of the afternoon sun pouring in across the pear and the plate?

Here's a better look at the bunny and his little pot. Can you see the sweet blue birds in the design? I was never quite sure what to do with the pots, but now I believe they have found their calling!

At the center of the table is this unusual pumpkin-shaped tureen that I found in a little restaurant called Blue Luna Café in Grayton Beach, Florida. I was having breakfast at a table right next to the tureen and it was for sale!! Needless to say, it left the restaurant with me! I am really glad that it did, because, sadly, the restaurant has since closed.

You have probably already noticed that I have two pairs of the famous blogger birdie salt and pepper shakers from Target...only $5.00 a pair! Someone should be getting a commission on the sale of these to bloggers!!! They are perched next to their nest, which is full of malted milk ball eggs. The eggs never made it to the hatching stage...yum! The little plate is a lace doily plate from Pier 1 also!

I carried my blue, white and green color scheme over to the hutch as well by adding fresh Granny Smith apples...a decorator's best friend... and some Lindt Lindor truffles in spring green wrappers! The beautiful basket is another gift from my dear friend Marty at A Stroll through Life who sent me a whole box full of wonderful surprises!

Coffee and dessert will be served from the buffet. There's my coffee butler that I resurrected from the thrift shop and my Wedgwood Queensware china.

This blue and white bunny decided to rest on the cake plate until the cake arrives! The plate was another flea market find.

So there you have it...my sunny Spring tablescape in blue, white and green! I hope you like it! Be sure to visit Susan to continue your tour de tablescapes and to have a look at her beautiful blog! See you next time!

  20. What a fresh and pretty table with those green pears! I love the green and blue together but my absolute favorite has to be those blue pots! I love those! Isn't it fun when we find pretty things that we can use in our tablescapes! Beautiful job.

    P.S. The little bunny on the pretty cake plate looks pretty sweet as well!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Love your blue and white table -- with the green it is perfect! But I think blue and white goes with any color! A very pretty table -- love the centerpiece (actually, I covet the centerpiece!) Love the sun and shadows as well. And I almost, yes, almost bought that very same rabbit -- but I resisted -- after all I have LOTS of rabbits and thought I didn't need another.

    ReplyDelete

    My Prowler, who looks a whole lot like your Baby Kitty, also wanted to stay outside today. Finally, after about 4 hours, he decided to come inside and has been "snoozing" all day!

  57. Hi Debbie, what's not to love about your tablescape! First I love blue and white but when paired with green...well, that's inspiration! I collect bunnies so it was a treat to see your little bunnies scampering across the table and the blue and white bunny watching over the buffet. Baby Kitty is lucky he is able to be outside enjoying the sun, remember the freaky snow storn not too long ago!

    Have a lovely day!

  58. Hey Debbie
    I love the green with your blue and white and a couple of those shots of the pear on your fabulous plates actually belong in a magazine.
    I don't blame your sweet kitty, blues skies and sunshine makes us all head for the great outdoors.
    Happy Twirls,

  60. I love the green with the blue!!! And your Pier 1 bunnies look like they were made for the little pots. You are right, I've seen them popping up all over blogland, so I had to run to Pier 1 the other night & pick me up a couple. Now I just need to find the right pot for them to go in.

  71. Yes! I can finall comment again, and just in time. I think this might be the prettiest tablescape this week, and one of the prettiest ones you have done.

    So I have decided to have an event next week called "Share Your Bunny on a Stick Pics." How fun would that be? They are so, so cute!

    I just wanted to tell you when the birds started chirping, Baby Lily perked right up and was looking around. It sounded like a dinner bell to her I think. :-D

    Its so good to be able to "talk" to you again here, my friend. Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Hi Debbie...love your spring tablescape! I love blue and green together! Your plates are gorgeous, as is the tureen! It cracks me up every time I see those little white bird S&P's. I think everyone has them...so cute and what a fantastic price. :-)
    Love how you coordinated your hutch with your table...great TT post! Susan
