COLORS OF SPRING - CLICK ON ANY PHOTO TO ENLARGE

RECENTLY,  I  HOSTED A  LUNCHEON  WITH  "SECRET GARDEN" CHINA BY NIKKO.  I USED A VARIETY OF TINTED VASES (TO MATCH  COLORS IN THE CHINA)  AND FILLED THEM WITH WHITE ROSES AND TULIPS.
 INSTEAD OF A TRADITIONAL NEUTRAL TABLECLOTH,  I USED  PALE  YELLOW. 
 DAFFODIL NAPKIN RINGS WERE ADDED  TO MATCH   DAFFODILS  ON THE PLATE.
I PURCHASED VARIOUS TINTED BOTTLES  FROM  PIER 1, MICHAEL'S AND THE DOLLAR STORE

 TWO GLASS BUTTERFLIES CONTAIN CANDLES,  ONE WITH  ORANGE AND  THE OTHER  HOT PINK.
SOME PEOPLE THINK THE PLACE CARD HOLDERS LOOK LIKE LITTLE PERFUME BOTTLES AND SOME SAY THEY LOOK LIKE DRESSER DRAW KNOBS.  WHAT DO YOU THINK?

AS AN AFTERTHOUGHT, I ADDED THIS PHOTO.  THE FIRST COURSE WAS CHILLED MANGO SOUP.
 THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO VIEW MY LATEST TABLESCAPE,  PLEASE FEEL FREE  TO LEAVE A COMMENT.

TEACUP TABLECLOTH - CLICK ON ANY PHOTO TO ENLARGE

FOR SOME STRANGE REASON, I AM FASCINATED BY ANYTHING WITH A TEACUP MOTIF
IN VIEW OF THE FACT THAT I AM NOT A TEA DRINKER, I'M NOT SURE WHY I'M THIS WAY
BUT I AM
I FOUND THIS TABLECLOTH WHILE ON A RECENT TRIP TO BELGIUM AND I WENT NUTS
I'M SURE IT WOULD BE PRETTIER IF I BOTHERED TO IRON - YEAH, RIGHT
TEACUP TABLECLOTHS ARE HARD TO FIND.  I'VE BEEN LOOKING FOR THIRTY-SOME YEARS AND HAVE ONLY  FOUND TWO, BOTH IN EUROPE.
I HOPE YOU LIKE IT TOO!

FINALLY SPRING - CLICK ON ANY PHOTO TO ENLARGE

MY SPRING TABLESCAPE WAS INSPIRED BY THE BEAUTIFUL BLUE DELFT VASE THAT WAS A GIFT FROM MY FRIEND, MARILYN.
IT ACTUALLY SNOWED THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING WHERE I LIVE, BUT NOW THE WEATHER IS BEAUTIFUL
THE PRETTY LITTLE DISHES PAINTED WITH BLUEBERRIES ARE ALSO A GIFT FROM MARILYN.  SHE PICKS OUT GREAT STUFF!!
I BOUGHT A NEW YELLOW TABLECLOTH AND PAIRED IT WITH SOME LACE PLACE MATS AND BLUE AND WHITE TOILE DISHES FROM 222 FIFTH.
A LITTLE BIRD LOOKS AT SOME BLUE GLASS EGGS
WHAT ELSE TO PUT IN A VASE THAT COMES FROM THE NETHERLANDS  --- TULIPS
 CAN YOU SEE THE WINDMILL PAINTED ON THE VASE?
OKAY, SO THE NAPKIN RINGS AREN'T TULIPS; YELLOW DAFFODILS WILL HAVE TO DO.
IT'S BEEN A LONG WINTER,  SO IT FELT GREAT TO BE TABLESCAPING FOR SPRING.

I HAD A PHOTO DILEMMA TODAY.  IF I USED MORE LIGHT, THE WRINKLES IN THE TABLECLOTH DIDN'T  SHOW; HOWEVER, THE LIGHT  CAPTURED  THOSE CRAZY SHADOWS.
I'M SO INTO SPRING I'M EVEN IN THE MOOD FOR CLEANING.
DID I REALLY JUST SAY THAT?
THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO VIEW MY SPRING TABLESCAPE.  I HOPE YOU ENJOYED IT.
