Welcome to the 436th Tablescape Thursday!
The spring-like weather we’ve been having and the flowers I received for my birthday from my beautiful friend, Linda, have put me in the mood for a spring table.
Hard to believe just a few weeks ago my front garden looked like this!
Hope this table brings some sunshine into your life on this January day. Are you having some warm days, too?
I placed this vase of floral sunshine on a small tray I’ve had here on the porch for many years. Two little birds longing for spring, flew down to enjoy and bask in the warmth.
A daisy centerpiece calls for daisy dishes. Eyelet napkins are from Pier 1 many years ago.
The pierced chargers are from Horchow in 2008. I was doing a lot of entertaining back then and purchased both white chargers and these cream-colored, pierced chargers online at Horchow, thinking those two sets would work with almost any china/dish pattern I had. At the time, I didn’t realize I’d one day be blogging and using them a lot.
Bird/floral wine glasses are from Old Time Pottery several years ago.
This vintage dishware is by Metlox Pottery, the pattern is Poppytrail, Sculptured Daisy. I found it 6-7 years ago while antiquing and filled in my collection with a few more pieces found on eBay. I love using it here on the porch during the spring and summer months.
As Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) said about daisies in the movie, You’ve Got Mail, this is the “friendliest” dishware! 🙂
I paired this happy pattern with my silverplate “twig” flatware, found years ago online at West Elm. Though West Elm no longer carries it, you can still find it available here: Silverplate Twig Flatware. It’s one of my favorite patterns and I find myself using it a lot.
I love how it looks with the whimsical spoons I custom-ordered a few months ago here: Silverplate Stamped Spoons. Do you recognize this quote? So fitting for a spring setting, even if it’s not quite spring.
I need to buy a few more with spring-summertime quotes. I love mixing them in with my other silver patterns. Love this one for winter!
And this one…
Knowing our crazy Georgia weather, we’ll probably have freezing temps come April!
Of course, you know I needed this one. 🙂 I was just thinking what a great gift it would be to have a spoon made for each guest attending a birthday or anniversary dinner, or a bridal luncheon. The spoon could be inscribed/stamped with the guest’s name and the date of the event. Love that idea!
Wishing you lots of sunshine on this warm winter’s day, dear Friends!
