Welcome to the 187th Tablescape Thursday!
Greetings! Hope it’s as beautiful where you are as it is here in Georgia. This has been such a wonderful spring! As I looked through the photos for this post, I noticed the background is changing with each week’s table setting here on the porch. It’s getting green and woolly out there…love this time of year!
For this Tablescape Thursday, I’m sharing another spring setting. This tablescape would also work well as a table setting for Easter, too.
Found these cute bunny planters for the centerpiece at Tuesday Morning. They were only $7 each. Remember the TM shopping trip we took in THIS post.
It’s been a long time since I’ve used this vintage 60′s Metlox china. The pattern is Poppytrail, Sculptured Daisy. I found it one day antiquing. I had just added on the porch and it seemed the perfect dishware for sunny days on a screened-in porch.
It’s easy to see why it’s called Sculptured Daisy; the pattern is raised and has a sculpted feel to it.
Stemware is from the Dollar Tree. Anytime I’m near a Dollar Tree, I have to stop in to see what glassware they have in. You just can’t beat $1 a stem.
I had this table all set and realized it needed a little something. A moss table runner instantly popped into my head. I thought I’d try to make one but once I arrived at Michaels, I discovered they had some ready-made. I compared pricing and it was definitely more cost effective to buy the ready made runner than to try and make one. I’ve forgotten the exact amount but with a 40% off coupon, the runner was only around $6.
It was a bit too long so I shortened it, cutting a little off at the time on one end. To give the remaining runner a fuller look, I pulled off as much moss as I could from the sections I had cut off and pressed it onto the runner. The moss runners from Michael’s are generally pretty flat so adding the extra moss gave the runner more of the look I was hoping for.
I have several and have used them before in past tablescape centepieces and door baskets over the years. I think Pier 1 has them in again this year.
They come on tall stems and I cut one down to use it in the centerpiece. The center planter is really the sauce/gravy bowl for the Metlox Sculptured Daisy dishware. It made a great planter for the daffodils from Trader Joe’s. Last Tablescape Thursday I used a few of the larger mercury-glass eggs from Pottery Barn. This week I’m using the smaller mercury-glass eggs, but just the green and silver this time. I’m totally hooked on mercury glass.
Green stemware is a dollar store find.
A sweet bunny…

This is the second moss table setting I’ve created for Tablescape Thursday. The last one was wild and wooly and covered the whole table! You can view that moss table setting HERE.
