Happy Wednesday, dear friends! I hope that you are enjoying lovely spring weather. In Oklahoma, we have had some beautiful days, but yesterday Mother Nature threw us a curveball. We went from a 75 degree day to freezing temperatures and snow! I believe we may have set a record. Hopefully, spring will soon return.
Last week, with all of natures beauty around me, I was inspired to set a small but pretty spring table in the breakfast nook. A floral April Cornell tablecloth seemed to be the perfect choice to serve as the anchor for my table. She always has the most beautiful table linens.
We have several wild plum trees growing in the woods behind the house. When the branches bloom the fragrance is heavenly. I decided that a few of the branches would make a lovely centerpiece in my pink McCoy vase. I have heard that wild plum jelly is delicious, but sadly the squirrels always seem to beat me to the fruit.
Green straw placemats, pink chargers, and a plate stack of Haviland china and green Majolica style plates by Bordallo Pinheiro are at each setting. Floral tea towels by Martha Stewart serve as napkins. I love to mix colors, patterns, and textures. In my eyes, it creates a more interesting display.
I’m so happy that you were able to gather around my table. Thank you for your visits and gracious comments. I hope that you have a most blessed and happy day, sweet friends! Take care!
