Welcome to the 237th Tablescape Thursday!
Yesterday was the first official day of spring. I’m so happy about that! I love spring and summer so much! The day started out a bit chilly but it warmed up just enough to get me out on the porch for this week’s Tablescape Thursday. The table setting I’m sharing today would be great for Easter and that’s more or less what I had in mind when I created it, but it would also work well anytime during the spring and summer months.
Mr. Bunny was eager to pitch in and help again this week.
You may remember two weeks ago he helped out with this St. Patrick’s Day tablescape by bringing along a basket of shamrocks.
For this week’s table, he filled his basket with Debutante camellias in the softest shade of pink.
I’m pretty sure I know where he found those.
You may remember this camellia in my front yard from a previous Christmas post: How to Hang Wreaths on Exterior Windows
What a sneaky little bunny, picking my camellias!
It’s hard to see, but the napkins are a spring green covered with sheer napkin sheaths.
The green napkins are visible in this overhead view.
For this tablescape I used floral Spode Chargers from the Kim Parker Home Collection. The pattern is called “Emma’s Garland.”
As seen in this previous tablescape, this is the salad plate that was designed to actually coordinate with the chargers.
I normally use the coordinating salad plates when I use the Spode chargers but for this tablescape I decided to try something a bit different. I love mixing pieces to come up with different combinations for different occasions. This Sketch Floral by Mikasa looked pretty with the chargers. To see more of this pattern, check out this table setting here: Mikasa Sketch Floral
In this photo below from a tropical table setting I did back in 2009, you can see the full pattern on the chargers. I love these silly things. Green is my fave color, followed by hot pink, so the colors in these make my heart sing. 🙂

I found these cute numbered pails in Marshalls a few weeks ago.
I purchase the two pictured above and one more in an cream color bearing the number 3. When I was checking out with them, the cashier asked where number 1 was? HA!
They should be a lot of fun to use this summer for all kinds of things.
For today, Mr. Bunny is using them to carry all his Easter eggs.
Be sure to take an egg before you leave.
And a camellia, too!
Looking forward to all the tablescapes linked for this Tablescape Thursday!
