I’m so happy that you have joined me for Tablescape Thursday. Everyone who knows me, knows that I love birds. I enjoy watching birds, listening to birds, and feeding the birds. I have a few bird houses in my backyard and love watching all the new baby birds hatch. Just recently we had, seven precious ducklings hatch in our front flower bed. Today’s tablescape is a tribute to the birds.
For the place setting, I chose Mikasa English Countryside china with bird accent plates. I used blue and white striped sear sucker napkins and anchored the place setting with yellow straw placemats and gold charger plates. The flatware is Reed and Barton Haversham, and the crystal is Fostoria American.
The bird accent plates each have different scenes.
For the underpinning of the tablescape, I chose a blue tablecloth with yellow embroidered flowers around the edge. I ran a fringed burlap table runner down the center of the table. The burlap table runner is very easy and inexpensive to make. I purchased burlap at the fabric store, measured and cut it to size, and made fringe by pulling the threads. I pulled the threads until I got the desired amount of fringe.
For the centerpiece, I placed a jadeite cake stand, added greenery, and perched a bird in the center. I also placed a decorative nest that I already had at the base of the cake stand.
Flanking the centerpiece are Fitz and Floyd Candlestick holders with ivory candles. Also placed among the centerpiece are gold bird statues and antique bottles with flowers from my garden.
I’m so happy that you stopped by. I hope that you have a blessed day and a wonderful weekend!!!
