Springtime brings lighter colors, warmer days, and a desire to go outside to the garden. It’s a wonderful time when the air is clear, and warm gentle breezes drift across the veranda while we enjoy the sunrise over the mountains, and sunsets across the valley. I am so ready for it to warm up and stay that way, to see the budding growth of flowers and trees, listen to the birds sing, and enjoy the explosion of spring color. The colors that appeal to me right now are yellow and green, so my tablescape features those in abundance.
I began with the place settings, starting with a green tablecloth. I layered ivory placemats on top so the green chargers wouldn’t get lost. White china plates, with yellow floral salad plates complete the stack. Of course, I usually put out individual salt and pepper shakers on each place. The good silverware comes out for this springtime dinner party, and wine glasses complete the setting.
I use yellow napkins, gathered with yellow flower pot napkin rings for a garden feel to the table.
The centerpiece is a yellow ceramic basket, with spring flowers. Daffodils and tulips say spring to me. A little yellow bird peeks out one side.
Of course, gardens often have rabbits, and as long as I don’t put out any eggs, it just says springtime. So out came a few rabbits. This serving tray is one of my favorites, and I use it all spring. One of my little gardening rabbits sits next to the centerpiece.
I have two gardening rabbits, this one is on the opposite side of the centerpiece. This one has a watering can.
Gardens also mean vegetables. This little guy peeking out of a lettuce head is a sugar bowl with a cute little carrot handle.
On the opposite side of the yellow ceramic basket is this rabbit, in green and white.
On the other end of the table, a sweet bunny offers his carrots. This cutie was a thrift store find recently. Isn’t it adorable?
Another little bunny serving plate, white goes nicely on the green tablecloth.
This is a little nut bowl, so very cute with the bunnies trying to climb inside. I usually have this on my coffee table, but decided to use it here this year. One of the fun things I like to do is find new ways to use what I already have for fresh looks.
All set for a lovely spring dinner!
I hope that by the day of the meal, the trees have leafed out. But the view from the dining table is wonderful no matter what the season.
One more view of the table, yellow and green, fresh for spring.
