Sunny Spring Table Setting

Welcome to the 295th Tablescape Thursday!

Has it been rainy lately in your area? It was here for a while but we have sunny days again now and I’m so glad! During a recent rainy day Pinky who blogs at Designs by Pinky, created a table setting guaranteed to make any gloomy day a whole lot more cheerful.

Pinky wanted to add a bit of texture to this setting. Rattan chargers worked great to add that element to the table.

Pinky found the tablecloth and pretty white and yellow dishware in Christmas Tree Shops. Wish we had one of those here in Metro Atlanta. I think the closest one to us is in Augusta. The white salad plates came from Kirklands.  Flatware is Napolean Bee from Horchow.

Pinky chose white and yellow Daisy Chrysanthemums to add even more cheer to her sunny table setting.

Love the raised pattern on the plates and love how Pinky mixed and matched different pieces to create this beautiful table setting.

A terrarium filled with lots of springtime inspiration made the perfect centerpiece for this tablescape.

The light coming in through the windows created wonderful shadows on the table.

When I first saw this picture, I wondered for a second if it was a real bee! But it’s not…no bees were harmed in the making of this tablescape! 🙂

    Thank you for sharing Pinky’s lovely tablescape–I love raised designs on china! Although I am allergic to some bees, I like anything with bee designs. I believe I read that Pinky lives in West Grove, which is just 10 minutes west of where we live. Would love to meet her; she sounds very sweet.
    Happy Mother’s Day to all you lovely ladies!

    Thanks for sharings Pinky’s table. It really cheers us up.

    Happy weekend ladies and to you Susan, great job.

  18. That Pinky! She has such a fun sense of style! The bee looks 100% real! Enough for me to bristle just thinking about it!!!

    The terrarium is one of the best features on this great table. It just looks like it belongs there! My 2nd favorite feature is the placement of sunny, fresh flowers at each spot. Very cool! I think guests would appreciate that very much.

    Have a happy Mother’s Day weekend!

  19. I love Pinky… and so happy to be her friend. We get together and just love the time we spend. I can detect her style anywhere. Her whole house is AMAZING! She is a big talent and the real deal of a decorator!!! Thanks for sharing her sunny table on a rainy day!!!
    Susan are you attending Haven? I sure hope so. Last year I was so celebrity struck by meeting you! This year it will be fun to meet you as my friend!
