Welcome to the 244th Tablescape Thursday!
The iris in my garden were at their peak last Tablescape Thursday but alas, I had no time that day to create a table setting. This week they were starting to wane but I couldn’t resist one more tablescape using them as the centerpiece.
Two weeks ago, when they were just beginning to open up, I created a simple table setting with the few I could find in bloom, placing each stem in its own bottle/vase. (Tablescape can be viewed here: Whimsical Spring Table Setting with a Floral Centerpiece
This week’s table setting kind of veered off track a bit. Right in the middle of creating it, I realized the BNOTP blog had vanished from existence thanks to a technical glitch in the domain renewal. (See yesterday’s post for details.) I guess I was just a little bit distracted.
When I started going through the pictures this evening, I noticed I placed the glasses in the wrong spot and I never got out the salad plates. Yep, I was definitely distracted.
Also, I spent so much time upstairs in my office solving the domain renewal issue, some of the flowers I picked earlier in the day, up and closed on me! Oh well, they’re still pretty.
So, please pretend like the glasses are in opposite positions, salad plates aren’t missing and ALL the iris are still in full bloom. Other than that, this tablescape is perfect.
For napkin rings, I tied a sheer white ribbon around the napkins and topped them off with little butterfly and flower shaped clips in colors of purple and white.
I’ve never been that big a fan of purple, but I sure do love the color against a white table setting.
Remember this Easter table setting? There’s just something about purple and white for spring.
Wish your monitor had a scratch and sniff screen. Iris have an intoxicating, spicy scent!
The vase was a wedding gift 35 years ago.
The crystal wine glasses were provided by Noritake, and the pattern is Rockford. They worked great with the tea glasses I already had. I love mixing patterns, even in stemware.
Pssst: Just noticed this evening, Noritake has a big spring sale going on.
Looking forward to the tablescapes linked for this Tablescape Thursday!
