It's time to post a pretty spring tablescape, but before you look at these gorgeous pictures, click through to read the details of a new blog party that I'll be hosting on Mondays, opening it at 3pm on Sundays. Merriment Making Mondays will be "anything goes", as long as it makes us smile! Hope you'll join me!
We'll celebrate St. Patrick's Day at our house, but I promised Miss Phoebe that she and Gwamma would start getting out the Easter Bunnies ... so here's a beginning! This pretty bunny came from HL and my candle hurricane is my all-time favorite candle holder. I love changing the decor by switching the things I have nestled in the bottom. These pretty pink peonies came from Dollar Tree, but they are some of the prettiest I've seen.
I posted pictures of this china perched on my hutch a few weeks ago and promised you'd eventually see it on a table! It is American made Style House from the 1950s in the Dresden Bouquet pattern. I have twelve place settings and lots of serving pieces, including the coffee server below! How pretty is that?
I think the prettiest part of this china pattern is the wide gold rim on the pieces. This china was in perfect shape when I bought it .. .not a mark on it and the gold is in more than perfect shape.
My Mikassa stemware and the Big Kahuna flatware with the gold pineapple on the end looks great.
The centerpiece began with a scarf that is often found around my shoulders! The pink, green and gold print was perfect for this tablescape. We all love our candle lite and I continue to be a giant fan of QVC's Bethlehem Lights battery candles. As long as I have big dogs that help me with my dinner parties, I'll avoid burning candles!
