Welcome to the 347th Tablescape Thursday!
Today I’m sharing a tablescape I had hoped to share back around Easter but couldn’t quite get it ready in time. It actually works great for spring or summer, too.
I kept the centerpiece simple with bunnies and a big pot of Delphinium.
I love Delphinium but whenever I’ve planted them in my garden, they never come back the next year. I’m wondering if it just gets too hot here. As I was checking out with them in the garden center, the associate who was ringing me up said she had seen them growing a lot in Ohio when she lived there, so apparently they grow well in that state. Another plant I can never get to come back is Hollyhock. I love those, too! Can you grow Delphinium where you live?
The white chargers are from Horchow back in 2008. Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage plates are from HomeGoods many years ago. Stemware is from Pier 1 several years ago.
The beaded butterfly napkin rings are from Pier 1 a few years back.
Salad plates are Ma Maison by Darrio Farucci and are from HomeGoods many years ago.
Polka dot/striped flatware was found on eBay last summer, I think it was last summer. It didn’t come with a salad fork so sometimes I’ll mix in a salad fork from a different set of flatware. It’s fun to mix and match flatware from different sets.
These little bunnies have held a number of things over the years. Today they’re holding a bouquet of white flowers.
If you have some tips for growing Delphinium or Hollyhocks, please share! I have a feeling it’s our summer heat and humidity that’s causing them to not return each year. Or, perhaps it doesn’t get cold enough here during the winter. Could that be it? Tulips never come back either…just their foliage comes back. Love to hear your thoughts on this!
Looking forward to the wonderful tables posted for this Tablescape Thursday!
If you are participating in Tablescape Thursday, please be sure to add your permalink below, and not your general blog address.
To get your permalink, click on your post name, then copy and paste the address showing in the address bar, into the “url” box when you link up. You’ll need to include a link in your post back to the party to link up and participate.
That’s so visitors to your blog will be able to find the party and the other Tablescape Thursday participants. Requiring a link back also prevents businesses from linking up to sell their products. (Yep, that really happens, unfortunately.)
Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
Please do not link up table settings that were just recently shared in the last few weeks for Tablescape Thursday.
