Springtime Table with a Daffodil Centerpiece

Welcome to the 182nd Tablescape Thursday!

It was another warm day today so the pull of the porch won out again.

All this warm weather we’re having has me thinking spring.  This table setting would work well as an Easter tablescape with its springtime colors.

The breezes stirred the sheers on the porch as I photographed this setting.  I couldn’t resist snapping a pic through the wind swept sheers.

If you have a really large serving bowl in the pattern you’re using, or a bowl that coordinates with your table, consider using it as part of your floral centerpiece.

I have daffodils blooming in the yard but not wanting to dig those up, I found these at Home Depot.  They were inexpensive and will transplant into the garden nicely once they are no longer blooming.

It’s impossible to look at daffodils and not smile! 🙂

I’ve used the napkins before in THIS summer table setting.  They were a gift from a friend years ago.

Napkins for a Summer Table Setting

This china, Ma Maison, by Tabletops Unlimited is one of my favorite patterns, if not my very fave.

Ma Maison Dishware by Dario Farrucci

The pattern includes all the things I most love: gardening hats and clogs, beautiful flowers, kitty cats, picket fences, garden benches, watering cans and a house surrounded in wisteria and flowering vines.  Please, may I move in?

Inside the bowl you’ll find white fluffy clouds against a blue sky and a pretty bouquet of flowers tied with a lavender ribbon.

The salad plate is Ma Maison by Tabletops Unlimited, designed by Darrio Farrucci.  The sunny-yellow dinner plate is Colorwave “Mustard” by Noritake.  It worked nicely with our daffodil centerpiece.

Iced Beverage glasses are from Pier 1 and were used previously in THIS “corny” table setting.  Wine glasses were a recent find at Dollar Tree.

Tip:  As tempting as it might be, try to resist cutting off the foliage once your daffodils stop blooming.  The foliage soaks up the good nutrients from the sun and feeds the bulb so it will bloom beautifully again the following year.  Once the foliage turns yellow and starts to die back, that’s the time to tidy up and trim it away.

I didn’t intensify any of the colors in the photos with photo editing software.  The flowers were just so vivid!  I potted the daffodils into a large Ma Maison serving bowl and added decorative moss on top for a finished appearance.  In the past, I have used the cookie jar and tea pitcher in this pattern for table floral arrangements HERE.

    This is a wonderful breath of Spring. We had 70º temps yesterday, and looking at more of the same today. I love that the chairs came dressed for the party, too. The accent plates are absolutely charming. Thanks for inviting us for a peak and for providing this wonderful meme each week. Cherry Kay

  2. Beautiful color choices! The green of the glasses and the yellow of the daffodils are perfect.
    Love the napkins too, what a extra nice gift =)

    I think your St. Patrick's Day post from a couple of years ago with the BIG vase of daffodils on the tray with your Irish dishes hooked me on BNOTP.

    Enjoy your weather and porch. I am jealous.

  13. Jacqueline says:

    I love your Ma Maison also Susan! It makes me ready to get started in the garden, alas, as you can see by my tablescape, we just started our snow season and when it comes this late, it usually goes really late too! The daffodils just make me happy! Love their gorgeous color.

    Gorgeous! I love the bright yellow daffodils! It supposed to be 82 here today so I am really wishing for springtime today. I am so ready to see more bright sunny colors outside and no more grey! Love your colorful seat cushions and the colors of your bottle tree outside too!

  16. Pat's Pink Apron says:

    Susan, Hi! I love your table on the porch. I can almost feel the breeze coming in. Reminds of SPRING. Pat

  17. I’m so inspired by your centerpiece! I always thought buying those flowers already blooming was such a waste, but I can plant them outside after and enjoy them year after year! I think I just had an “Aha” moment there. Thanks!

  18. ~Tablescapes By Diane~ says:

  19. Pretty Spring tablescape and I just LOVE the napkins!! The daffodils are beautiful. Thank You for hosting and have a great weekend! Aledia

  20. Shirley Hailstock says:

    I am so jealous of your porch and the weather. The table looks great. I love the bright color and the promise of Spring. While it’s 60 degrees today, the hint of winter is still with us. I’ll be glad when I can set a table outside and use the yellow color scheme.

  21. Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest says:

    Susan, We have loads of Daffoldils once spring hits us here – Tulips too but the deer won’t allow the blooms last but just a few short hours!What we do in the garden to keep the foliage but to “tidy up” the garden is something my mother taught me: we fold the leaves over in half and tie them down. That way it really remedies the unkempt look in the garden ever slightly, but still allows the sun to sustain “feeding” the bulbs for future generations. Anyway, your tablescape is lovely and your porch is always such a welcome sight. Thank you for hosting such a wonderful link party each week.

  22. Sweetest table-scape ever. I love these dishes. What can I say about your porch…paradise. Deb=^..^=x4

  23. Susan, I love, love, love this tablescape. It takes me away to warm spring breezes and sweet smells of flowers. A nice respite from the blustery winter winds outside my door. Your dishes are adorable and I can see in my near future a trip to The Home Depot to get some of those beautiful daffodils.

  24. Sanna - My Blueberry House says:

    Hi Susan, I feel full of spring looking at your tablescape. The napkins are so cute adding that extra touch and the green glassware too. Love it! I wish I had enough cupboard space to purchase more china. Your Ma Maison sure is beautiful 🙂 Have a nice day, Sanna

  25. Wow …the table is just stunning…the colors are simply beautiful and the photographs are amazing…you are loving that camera…I hope you don’t mind I posted my post with the big new on it…it’s kind of like a tablescape…lol..^..^

  26. Gardening in a Sandbox says:

    Love the table setting. Loved all of it. V

    Oh your table looks lovely. Those daffs are just so sunny. I am excited for you guys that Spring is on it’s way. Unfortunately that means the end of Summer for us here in Australia. But everyone gets their turn I guess. Carolyn xx

  31. SwedishCorner-DownUnder...Pernilla says:

  32. Pam ~ Virginia Retro says:

    Love your tablescape, something about that green glass…it’s gorgeous, as are the Daffodils. Some of mine popped up and froze a few days ago, but thankfully have lots more to come.

  37. What beautiful china! I love it!

  38. Susan, I hope you enjoyed your warm weather today! I heard it was in the upper 70’s, and that sounds wonderful to me! Your bottle tree caught my eye in the background, and I plan on constructing one in the woods at our cottage this year. Love the cheery tablescape!

  39. Beautiful and fresh, Susan. Love those daffodils!

  40. Mid-Atlantic Martha says:

    Love the pretty spring look on your porch. We’ve gone from snow on Monday to the 70’s today! What a difference 4 days can make.

  41. Hey Susan! I love your set..Ma Maison. How sweet! The Daffs really set off your table…then there’s the cushions, just perfect. I need to go check out Home Depot’s Garden Dept..this past weekend I was there to pick out some new bathroom fixtures . wahoo! Have a great week and thank you for osting this party that I gather inspiration from evey week! Huggs, Sunny D

  42. Another Sandy says:

    Love, love, love it. The bright green and yellow is my favorite with the Ma Maison. Is this with your new camera?

  43. Mom in High Heels says:

    Good grief! The napkins with the bike on them make me want to weep they’re so gorgeous! Beautiful tablescape as always.

  44. Coastal Design Blog says:

  45. Susan your beautiful table gives me hope that spring will come again this year!! 🙂

  46. Thank you for being such a gracious host. Your table is so welcome today, we are in the middle of a snowstorm.

  47. I think they are my favorite dishes from your collection too….the pictures came out so gorgeous…Now i really need to take my D7000 out of the box and take my lessons!!!…Your tablescape is beautiful as always!

  48. ~~Ahrisha~~ says:

    Morning Susan~~~ Beautiful table. You always have such lovely posts. I love visiting here. Wonder if I could still find that china. .somewhere? I’ll be looking for it. Love the black cat. ~ ~Ahrisha~

  49. SheilaG @ Plum Doodles says:

    Your cheery tablescape is so wonderfully spring-like. What says spring better than daffodils? I love the way you layer your dishes and those napkins are perfect. 🙂

  50. Designs by Pinky says:

    I have been in love with these dishes since the very first table you shared with them! They are just beautiful. The daffs are GORGEOUS, I actually thught they were fake at first because they are so colorful!!! GREEN bamboo flatware!!!! I will be on the hunt for that now:) It is beautiful as well. The napkins I remember and love too! Your table is stunning my friend. XO, Pinky Thanks again for hosting.

  51. Susan, you have certainly set a happy table. Love the yellow daffodils with their orange face. The dishes and napkins are perfect together. I hope your weekend is filled with springtime glory to mimic this beautiful table. ~ Sarah

  52. Your table settings are absolutely breathtaking! I’m always inspired to set a prettier table after seeing your posts. Thanks for sharing your beautiful talent!

  53. Susan, as always your tablescape is just beautiful. Each week when I see it I am amazed at your ability to make the settings new and different and always so pretty. Thank you. By the way–I just love those darling napkins from your friend…

  54. Another Sandy says:

    I’m impressed! Great shots. I would never have guessed it was less light. Of course, the photographer gets the credit. I think it’s funny when people say that’s-a-great-picture-what-kind-of-camera-do-you-have. It’s like the camera gets all the credit. 🙂

  55. How beautiful! I especially like the dishes.

  56. Ok, Susan, rub it in. You Southern gals will be posting flowers while your Northern friends are still wearing wool! We won’t see a bloom around here for at least 6 weeks. I guess it is time to take those snowmen in your header down, they must be melting in your gorgeous weather. Your table is beautiful, a breath of fresh air. Love the dishes , and the dafs are so cheerful!

  57. As always, just gorgeous! I love the dishes even more now…if that’s possible!

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
