Thoughts of Spring on a Winter’s Day

Good morning, sweet friends! I don’t know about you, but I could use some sunshine. With Winter’s darkness and the desire for Spring, I decided that pretty flowers and happy color would be my inspiration for today’s tablescape.

These pretty flowers have some of my favorite colors, and add a wonderful accent to the table.

For the centerpiece, the floral arrangement was placed on a tole tray with a pretty floral sugar bowl and creamer.

Gold lace placemats were used along with a beaded gold organza runner placed at an angle. The plates were purchased at Homegoods a couple of years ago. They are by Sadek and are a reproduction of the Chinese export porcelain collected by Harold S. Vanderbilt.

    • Thank you, Liz! I am so dreaming of Spring too. Our weather here in Oklahoma has been really crazy this year. We have had some 70 and 80 degree days. It makes you wish for Spring. I hope that you enjoy your day!!!

  15. Beautiful colors in your flowers and plates. Your plates are striking and the napkins look great with them. Spring is around the corner for you I know.
    It has sprung here weirdly. It got down to 34 last night and a high of 70 is predicted for today. I’m in south Alabama and I need to look up where you are.

    • Thank you, Bonnie, for the sweet and kind words. Our weather in Oklahoma has been like yours. It is in the 30s in the morning with highs in the 70s in the afternoon. It has been a crazy Winter! I think that is what has me dreaming of Spring. I am ready for green grass, trees, and pretty flowers. We are visiting your pretty state in May for our family vacation. It is one of favorite places to visit. We are staying in Point Clear and using it a spring board to visit other areas. My kid’s love Orange Beach! I hope that you enjoy your day!!!

  16. I love your dining room and table setting. Everything looks so elegant, but homey and comfortable at the same time . . . like you’d just like to walk into that room and sit down. Thanks for the nod to spring!
