Welcome to the 191st Tablescape Thursday!
Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments left on yesterday’s post. I so appreciate each and every one. Your encouragement is giving me the perseverance I need to finish the project.
I know Easter has long since past but I’m still not quite done with bunnies.
This time the bunnies are in a springtime breakfast table setting.
Lately, I’ve been drawn to floral centerpieces and great ways for displaying flowers like this vase within a vase arrangement.
The color of the honeysuckle was just right for the tablescape waiting on the porch. So I put the car back in the garage, grabbed the gardening shears and got busy snipping lots of the fragrant blossoms.
I found these cute cloche egg cups in Pottery Barn several months ago.
They are perfect for breakfast any time of the year, especially on a spring morning.
For this breakfast table setting, we’ll imagine our salad plate is there to hold a salad of fresh fruit. Flatware is by Gourmet Settings and is available here: Gourmet Settings Treble Clef, available HERE.
Just for fun, I placed a painted, pastel egg that’s fallen from my Easter wreath inside one of the egg cloches. I noticed this year the eggs on that old wreath have really faded. I’m thinking about taking them all off to paint them, then reassembling the wreath. Ummm, I’ll have to get right on that just as soon as I finish gluing forty-eleven, billion shells on 5 more chargers. 😉
This is the second time I’ve used it in a table setting. The first time was for this romantic, “Faerie Ball” dinner for two on the deck. It may not be a “fancy” flower but I it offers its humble fragrance, color and beauty to the table.
The metal cap just sits on top of the glass jar and makes creating a floral arrangement so easy. I have a feeling I’ll be looking for excuses to use this again and again. Just checked and they are available online, too.
Dragonflies have landed on the napkins.
They must have been lured here by the sweet smell of honeysuckle.
