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!
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 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!
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!
