Springtime Tablescape

12 Comments

Spring is just around the corner, and I am looking forward to warmer weather. Easter is in March, coming just ten days after St Patrick’s Day, another opportunity for a tablescape. But, I have much to finish this month, including a new recipe for Moda Bake Shop, so one tablescape will have to do for the whole month. With that in mind, I got out my rabbits as they say springtime to me. As long as they aren’t paired with eggs and baskets, they can stay out for weeks.  The crystal-look napkin rings are a recent thrift store find.

I love this little guy in his lettuce.

Another recent thrift store score, I found these wonderful plates in springtime colors with the pretty scalloped edge. There were only a few, but I managed to find more on ebay to complete the set.

They have a deeper center, and can be salad plates or do fine for a sandwich. I placed them on white stoneware, and grass green woven placemats. Yellow napkins carry the spring fresh theme, echoing the center of the plates.

In the center, the white hyacinth is coming into bloom, and has the sweetest fragrance!

The White on White Table Runner is placed on the diagonal, and more rabbits are added. Beeswax candles flank the hyacinth.

We will enjoy this setting for a couple weeks.

On the formal dining table, I just set a few rabbits and Easter baskets for the month. We don’t plan a big dinner this month. I started with the Stacked Bricks quilt in the pretty pastel colors.  The pattern is available for free in my Craftsy store.

Isn’t this little snail cute?

I still have my little Easter rabbit train. They are on the cookbook shelf, with the cookbook Eggs. Perfect, isn’t it?

  1. What lovely table settings! Some of your pieces look like Fitz & Floyd – a favorite of mine. The plates were a great find. And the plush bunnies – who could resist?! Alas, my spring décor is in storage temporarily, so thank you for sharing your home. I’m wintering away from mine. A bit of nostalgia is a good thing.

  2. When we have company, we throw things on the table, hoping they will look good. It’s so refreshing to see your thoughtfully planned decor.

  3. I’m cleaning and purging for spring! Getting urgent, closing on the new house April 8 if all goes as planned (inspection items that are being repaired). I will re-dress my vintage dolls in spring clothes this week, and that cheers me up. My son says my Toodles from the 50’s and 60’s are creepy, ha! I love your little porcelain tchotkes. I have porcelain houses and old plates. They’re coming out when I move!

    Thanks for sharing, Carole.

  4. Sweet bunnies! I love the grass green against the dark wood of the table. Oh, and what’s the secret for success with the hyacinth bulb, please? I received one for Christmas, but it looks nothing like yours! Mine has a single root hair (so far) and a tiny tip of green coming out of the top of the bulb. Sad.

  5. Good Morning Carole! As always, you have enchanted me with your special table settings! You did a marvelous job at saying Spring with the colors you chose and the bunnies are an excellent accessory. Ebay, second hand stores and garage sales are excellent sources for filling out a table setting that is missing pieces.

    We bought a set of China one year at a Garage Sale and it was missing a few pieces for a complete set. Hubby found them on Ebay. Later he found some salt and pepper shakers at Good Will plus some extra tea cups. We have also found a few pieces at a garage sale, but they were not in very good shape. Yet, if you find something you truly like go ahead and buy it and it may take some searching and time, but most likely in time you will find the match somewhere. As you have proven with your excellent table settings!

    Your Hyacinth is gorgeous! It is one that I have never tried, but after seeing how beautiful it is with the dainty individual flowers, I will surely be picking up a few bulbs. Over the course of the next month, I will be purchasing and planting new bulbs and seeds. Well that is if Southern Oregon ever decides to warm up enough and stop raining long enough. LOL. In certain areas we are experiencing flooding. Yet across the road and up the mountain, you can see where it snowed pretty good last night again.

    Well we got the new computer up and running. Hubby is trying to figure out all of the new parts of Windows 10 or whatever it is called. So hopefully if all goes well I will be able to post pictures once again. Every time I say that something goes wrong, hmmmm, I might need not say that then…to late. Deanna and I are having a sewing day with the intent of finishing off several projects and getting Step 3 all done! So I had best say my good byes and go and get everything set up and ready to go!

    Have a fantastic creative day! I truly love your table settings! Thank you for sharing!

  6. Ah this is all oh so pretty ! I haven’t brought my spring / easter stuff out yet and need to! 🙂 You have insprired me to get a move on…

  7. Adorable Adorable and adorable
    All of it. I love pretty things. I do not have pieces like this. Those plates are gorgeous.
    You really have a nice collection of treasures, Carole.
    I have boat loads of Delft from Holland, and dozens of Hümmels.
    Oh! My mother in law gave me an adorable statue vase of a dutch boy carrying a basket of tulips.

    The table looks so sweet, perfect for Easter morning breakfast

  8. Lovely table settings again! I do enjoy seeing your array. We will do our Easter celebrating at my daughter’s, where the oldest of her three girls turns 13 on the day before. I have a long-stashed piece of very pretty eastern egg fabric, but the right project has not yet stuck. Maybe for next year ….

  9. All I can say is that you must have tons of storage as you have such lovely pieces of china to suit every occasion! For us in the southern hemisphere Easter signals autumn with crisp mornings and evenings.

  10. Very nice tablescape and cute decorations. I still need to get my Easter decorations out on my mantle.

  11. So pretty and perfect for springtime! I love those green cabbage-leaf shaped bowls on each side of your centerpiece. The flower edged plates are lovely and you were lucky to pick up more on Ebay. The green and yellow colour combo of your table is so fresh looking.
