Spring has Sprung!

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 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.     

Layered favorites

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'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......

and purse!

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.   


Happy Spring!

  4. This is so incredibly cute, Sonya! I like looking at the close ups...the placemats are so pretty and I have a thing for stuffed fabric bunnies...I don't see too much of those anymore, they were popular in the "country" days. Yep, your table has me thinking of spring and that's a good thing!
