My Springy Little Roosters
Welcome Tablescapers, our favorite day of the week is here again. It is time to link up with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
We have had some really great spring like weather around here lately and it got me in the mood. I bought these dishes from a catalog last spring and we have been enjoying them as our everyday dishes. They are marked akauasa, nothing fancy for sure but very fun. The pattern is called Casa Vero.
They came with bowls too but they are so big that you can barley see the plate when stacked so I left them out. I also used the salad plates as saucers for the coffee cups. they are on the small side and the plates anchored them on the table a bit better. I will do a table using the bowls for a soup and sandwich night later on.
Have you ever noticed that I never use flowers on my table? Well, I have a issue. No I'm not allergic. It is silly really, but I just LOVE fresh cut flowers of any and every kind. But when they die it makes me so sad. I just hate it really!! My husband has strict orders to never bring me flowers. Well unless its potted and can find a place in our flower beds or house! Yeah, I'm wacky I know.
I saw these little red beauties and they were just dying in the after Valentine's Day bin and it hit me. Should I let them die alone in the bargain bin? No way, I say. From now on I will rescue at least one bouquet a week from the bargain bin. It appeals to my cheap, I mean thrifty side too!
Aaahhh! I will never deprive my little table fresh flowers again! They are so pretty. Yes I will be sad when they are done. But they will live on in my blog.
I thought these little tea light holders in green would be perfect for a little light without overshadowing the flowers.
My pewter chickens came out too. Can't have a Rooster party without inviting the ladies.
Look at him. He is just showing off for the hens.
Sorry about the lighting. Someone needs a new camera and a clue how to use it.
Now it is getting a bit darker. A few shots of the candlelight.
I want to thank you all for stopping by. I enjoy visiting by all of your wonderful tables and I try to see them all. Please leave me a comment. I love to hear from you! Happy Tablescaping!
