Hello friends! Today I’m pleased to once again participate in a tablescape blog hop hosted by the talented Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate. This week we will be dressing our tables for Spring! The hop began on Monday, so be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post for the links to all of the participating blogs. And don’t forget to stop back again on Friday to see the final six beautiful tables, as well!When I think of Spring, I envision the return of our feathered friends who have arrived home after spending the Winter in the South. It always seems like there’s more chirping going on once the warmer weather arrives. So I featured birds and their nests for my Spring Tablescape.The china is a vintage set with a dainty floral motif that I found in a box under a table at a church sale. It was manufactured in the USA by the Crooksville China Company. I believe it was the first set of dishes I bought as a “grown up”. It was the late nineties and I’d just bought my first home. Shabby Chic was all the rage then, and these definitely had that look. I realized as I set this table that I love them as much today as I did when I was twenty five!I layered the dinner plates over silver chargers and my pink dogwood depression glass grill plates. The plates belonged to my great aunt, and I’ve been collecting additional pieces of this pattern as I find them. I wanted the primary color scheme to be green, grey and pink.I found these pink, grey and cream plaid napkins at Homegoods. I used my everyday silver steel flatware. The tablecloth is a drop cloth, which I also used for my Thanksgiving Tablescape.The base of the centerpiece is a wire basket lined with excelsior moss. I put reindeer moss into a round glass bowl and nestled my rabbit’s foot fern plant inside. A taper candle sits on a china saucer and is protected by a glass hurricane. A wooden bird sits in a nest on a birch log.The birds were whittled by my step father. He’s a skilled carpenter and a birdwatcher. I’ve been decorating my homes with these little guys for years!The mini moss topiary trees at each place setting are a recent DIY project. I used Dollar Tree materials and they cost just under a dollar each to make. They are also featured in my front entry makeover. They’ll be going back to the front entry when I’m done with this tablescape!My mom bought these tea pots at The Christmas Tree Shop years ago. I just love the raised vine details and the cream color. A mini nest with a bird’s egg sits atop each bread and butter plate.I honestly don’t remember where I acquired these bird salt and pepper shakers. They were in my china cabinet, and they fit right in with the theme.This vintage sugar and creamer set came from my mom’s stash. I love them…crazing, cracks and all.The two tiered cake pan stand is another recent DIY project. I made the cupcakes and added Dollar Tree faux pink hydrangea flowers for a pop of color. My daughter couldn’t wait to try one when she got home from school!I hope you enjoyed my Bird Themed Spring Tablescape. I sure hope that the groundhog was right and we’ll have an early Spring!
Thank you again to Chloe for organizing these fun tablescape blog hops. Now it’s time to check out how my creative table stylist friends decorate for Spring!
