I love the different seasons of the year, and I love to decorate when the seasons change. That being said, I do live in the desert southwest where we do not have a distinct four season year. Winters are mild and when Spring comes it very quickly slides into our hot summers. Setting a colorful, spring-like table is one of the ways I capture this short season.
My pretty blue chevron tablecloth came from a lovely company I ran across this past Christmas called Linen Tablecloth. On their site they have dozens of tablecloths in a variety of materials and sizes. They seem to cater especially to those planning wedding and other large events, but an order can be as small as one item. I would find it hard to buy just one thing because not only do they sell tablecloths but also place mats, chair clovers, and table accessories among other things. I’m not being compensated in any way from this company, I just happen to love their products and their very reasonable prices. Be sure to check them out.
I wanted to keep it simple because for this particular dinner I wanted to serve family style with all the food placed on the table. I thought these small blue mason jars containing beautiful yellow tulips were perfect. There is a myriad of tutorials on the internet that show how to dye mason jars, and you can find several on my DIY Pinterest board here.
Recently I purchased Kingsquare 10 inch white china plates. The guys in my house were very impressed with plates that “are big enough”. I’m really loving them too. My flatware is Glenridge by Waterford and I do believe it is just about the best flatware I’ve ever had. It is so sturdy and it just never seems to lose its shine. The napkins, rings, and placemats were purchased from Bed Bath and Beyond several years ago, and I often use these particular napkins for setting my breakfast table no matter what time of year it is. They just say “bright, sunny morning” to me.
This was such a fun tablescape to create, and since I had several blooms left from the two bunches of flowers that I bought, I spread them all around the house. When I posted a pic of my table on my Facebook page, someone commented that it looked as if “Spring had sprung” at my home…….which was exactly what I was going for. Doesn’t Spring just make you happy?
