It's finally Spring and I've been so busy this week that I didn't get a new post finished. I wanted to post something springy to CELEBRATE the first days of spring so this is a
re-run of one of my favorite tablescapes.
One of my sweet girlfriends and her husband saw this adorable teapot in Cracker Barrel and thought I needed it for my collection! Thanks Tina and Don ..so in honor of such a lovely gift I just had to set a little tea party table to celebrate!
The teapot's colors are perfect for my favorite flower petaled cake turned teapot stand, as well as the April Cornell placemats I purchased on my trip to Texas.
I bought these knowing that my favorite dishes would match this pattern. The placemats are reversible and plaid on the alternate side..I love that I can get two looks for the price of one!
The napkins are in the plaid and I added another lime green napkin I've had for years as the color was a match. I added the sweet little bunny napkin rings from Hobby Lobby.
The teacups are from Hobby Lobby (half-price) and actually have matching plates. I used my little GW found rose petaled soap dishes for a saucer and to perch the egg cups on.
I bought this little topiary at JoAnn's Fabric on sale...it's perfect for a small spring/Easter centerpiece.
I found this pitcher at GW just last week for $4.98. We used it for all the entries of my giveaway (see last post) I love the shape and the flower motiff made it a perfect addition to my spring collection of dishes. I use pitchers for flower vases, since they are heavier and the mouth is wider than most vases.
This adorable bunny was given to me years ago. I just love her..she is so pretty and the colors in her outfit are soft and sweet. I found the little candleholder/pedestal she is sitting on for $1.00 at a thrift store.
I love her shoes......
These little chicks were tossed in the bottom of my shopping bag in Texas ...without my knowledge and when I found them their little faces seem to say:
Are you my Mother??
I guess I'm stuck with them since I took them across state lines! In the meantime I made them little nests in my egg cups until they are big enough to lay their own eggs!
Hope you take time out of your busy schedule to make a cup of tea and enjoy spring..or better yet have a tea party of your own.
