Set Your Table With Flair--A Simple Spring Setting

Hello, friends!!  Thank you so kindly for stopping to spend a few moments today!  Yesterday, I shared a quick update of my outdoor furniture.  Changing my furniture from oh-so-blah black to full-of-whimsy white has me inspired to set my first table for Spring!  There's nothing like a little nibble in the early afternoon on a table adorned in a fresh palette of Spring color!

Setting up in one of my favorite corners of the yard where my grapevines grow seemed perfect.  The freshly painted furniture I've had for years from Target looks beautiful against the leafy backdrop.

A yellow and white striped cloth begins the setting,

followed by sweet crochet.

Closeup of the detail.  I love this cloth, a recent find from a tiny little vintage reminds me of when I was little and actually did crochet, knit, and sew....oftentimes alongside my best friend, my little sister.

Simple white plates and sweet yellow petal saucers

were followed by pretty tea towels with lovely crocheted edges; each adorned with white rose napkin holders.

I adore the intricate details on the tea towels. 

A jolly watering can becomes a centerpiece

after more tea towels are placed strategically inside,

followed by cheerful chrysanthemums.

Completed tablescape....

All ready for snacks outdoors......

in the quiet of the garden.

  1. Your table is a breath of fresh air. So bright and cheery. It is perfect for a delightful afternoon in the garden. Love the crocheted topper.

    Happy Easter sweet friend and thank you for the encouraging words and well wishes for my mother. I was deeply touched by all the support and kindness.



  2. Absolutely lovely! Your crocheted topper is beyond beautiful ( I am seriously doing some vintage shopping to find something similar!) and your dish stack and choice of centerpiece make this a perfect setting for a delightful Easter celebration or any other meal during the spring and summer. I can't say enough.......Have a wonderful Easter. Rosie @ The Magic Hutch
