Welcome to the 291st Tablescape Thursday!
It’s been beautiful weather here although the pollen is raging! It was unbelievably thick on the porch table and required a good wipe down before I could create a table setting for this week’s Tablescape Thursday.
Starting to see a little green out there now.
It’s hard to be upset over the pollen when the spring breezes are so nice.
They fanned out the sheers and sent them dancing into the view of the camera as I snapped pictures for this week’s post.
A while back I purchased a rustic little greenhouse from Marshall’s.
It ended up being a part of the centerpiece for this week’s table.
I’m always asked about using taller centerpieces in table settings. Don’t be afraid to use a taller centerpiece when setting the table. If it turns out that it’s in the way when you sit down for dinner, just move it to a sideboard or to another surface at that time. The greenhouse was fine due to its slanted shape and being made of glass.
This started out as an Easter tablescape but it could easily be used any time during spring or summer.
Do you remember the small bunny cloches used in previous table settings? Wonder what could be underneath?
For napkin rings, I reused the little flowers from this table setting created back in May 2011. Look, it’s the blue hour!
I bent the wire stems around to form a circle for napkin rings for this tablescape.
I layered Spode, floral chargers with Bordallo Pinheiro Cabbage Plates. Umm, let’s take a peek under the cloche.
A sweet treat for you! Hey, it’s an egg cup and these are eggs, right? 😉
I forgot to take a picture of the salad plate so I snagged one from a previous spring/Easter table setting. They are from Pottery Barn and can be seen here: Easter Bunny Salad Plates
After cleaning off a super thick layer of pollen,
I placed the greenhouse in the center of the table.
…and filled it with pansies.
I like the contrast of the rustic greenhouse paired with the colorful place settings and white, scalloped-edged napkins.
Are you covered up in pollen where you live or do you still have snow on the ground? Hope that snow is melting or all gone!
Love this time of year, in spite of the pollen!
