Welcome to the 131st Tablescape Thursday!
It’s been a rare February day…actually a rare February week. With temps in the 60’s here all week long, I’ve been craving spring and a tablescape full of sunshine.
I just shopped the house for a centerpiece. Actually, I couldn’t make up my mind which centerpiece to use, so I used two.
The sunflowers normally live on the trunk/coffee table in the upstairs family room/bonus room. I’ve used them in previous tablescapes HERE and HERE.
Salad plates are Wedgwood. You may recognize them from our 39th Tablescape Thursday, HERE in May 2009.
I’ve been told that the hallmark on the back indicates these plates were made around 1937, or even earlier.
I paired them with my Blue Willow…
I love the raised pattern around the edge…
Flatware is Napoleon Bee…
How about a different centerpiece…..
I found this hand-crafted birdhouse years ago at the “Cottin Pickin’ Fair” in Gay, Georgia. The breezes were blowing across the porch today…you can see the sheers billowing out on the porch in this pic.
I had planned to use it in the garden and just never got around to finding a good spot for it.
I love all the metal work and little details…
You may recognize the pattern in these wonderful placemats. They are Genevieve, Yellow Collection by April Cornell and I used the tablecloth in this pattern for our 82nd Tablescape Thursday. Here’s a picture from that tablescape. To view the rest of that tablescape, click HERE.
I hope your week has been full of sunshine. If not, this sunshine tablescape is for you! If you have a teascape for this week, Laura at Decor to Adore is hosting a wonderful High Tea Tablescape party today.
