My Favorite Spring Tablescape

IMG_5481Today I am revisiting one of my favorite posts…my sunny spring tablescape. And I am betting you will recognize some of the photos because they have become my signature…

IMG_5477amy blue and white plates topped with green pears! They were taken in March, 2009…when I had only been blogging for about 4 months. The afternoon sun was pouring in through the Palladian window, creating interesting shadows.

IMG_5480If you were blogging then, I am sure you will recognize the bunny on a stick! lol They were all the rage! I don’t think Pier One could keep them in stock. And…do you know that they still have them? Yep. I saw them again just the other day!

IMG_5556 At the center, one of my favorites…my pumpkin-shaped tureen. I love those funny legs and the handles! And…peeking in from the left…those infamous Target birdie salt and pepper shakers that even got their own linky party! (One of my favorite posts ever!)

IMG_5511 But my favorite photos were…and still are…of my wonderful pierced blue and white plates topped by spring green pears! You will recognize them from my header.

IMG_5512 Each one is different. I later found candlesticks to match this one.

IMG_5513 I think this one is the prettiest because, unlike the others, the center is not white, but patterned.

IMG_5514 However, this photograph is my all-time favorite. I love the effect of the shadows…creating a lacy pattern on the white plate underneath. Yes…this one is me…my avatar, the little photo image that represents me!

IMG_5483 And finally…here’s a look at the whole tablescape, with the afternoon sun pouring in across the table, bringing back memories of an earlier spring day. Ahhh! Come on, Spring! We are waiting!

  18. I love your tablescape, the tureen is beautiful!

  19. That shade of blue with that shade of green is just gorgeous!!

  20. So beautiful, Debbie! I love the mix of green, blue and white. And you're right - anytime I see the picture of the plate with a pear, I know that it's you! I was surprised to see those little bunnies in Pier I the other day too. I have them marching across my mantle. Take care.

  21. I love this beautiful blue and white table, Debbie. I am so glad you re-posted!

  22. How nice! I enjoyed your pictures! I can see why you love these dishes! The soup tureen is cute! Love the green stemware mised adds a nice pop of color in a table setting that often get's a matching blue glass! I bought those bunnies too! I evern spray painted one with white to see how it would look. It was okay but I decided the green was the cutest!

  23. Debbie, I have always loved your tablescapes, and this is one of my favorites. Love the green stick bunny and need to get mine out. Where are they??? ;-)

    I'm so sorry I haven't been blogging. I've had computer issues and am on Mr. Magpie's work computer tonight. Don't know when I am going to have a chance to get a new one because I am up to my eyeballs in life stuff... Adelaide's husband had a triple bypass (unexpected), and another friend's husband is in the final days of pancreatic cancer. I have had no time to blog which I miss SO much.

    I hope to be back by the end of spring. I miss you and all of my blogging buddies.

    Take good care...


    Sheila :-)

  24. This is beautiful and I do recognize it from your signature look. I wasn't blogging yet when it was originally posted so the table is new and delightful to me. I love it.

  25. So very pretty! I, too, love those blue cutwork plates and admit to have the wonderful bunnies on a stick! They still make me happy every time spring rolls around! Jane

  26. Hi Deb,

    Your turine (what's the spelling?) is to die for. It's so beautiful. Looks like Miss Universe standing in the middle. GORGEOUSLY...

    Happy TS,

  27. Deb I loved it then and I love it now, blue and white dishes with green is a perfect color combination in my book, So pretty and I do believe it is your signature, xo Kathysue

  28. Still so pretty, Debbie. Very fresh and inviting. I had almost forgotten the "bunny on a stick" rage and then the "target birdie" fad. But I still have them and use them, too! Love the lighting. Linda

  29. Very pretty! Thank you for joining me at Home Sweet Home!
