I'm sorry this photo is blurry - this is an overview of an early spring tablescape. We're still a few weeks from the "big bloom" here in Virginia, so I don't have any live flowers on this centerpiece. My white goodwill plate with a pewter salad plate. The blue floral napkins came from Tuesday Morning with white ceramic napkin rings. The pewter goblets were wedding gifts from 33 years ago and the pewter plates I've added to over the years - also started as wedding gifts. The bluebird platter is a small one. My mother had a much larger one and I regret that it got away from me a few years ago when my dad downsized. I've been looking for another one ever since. This view of the centerpiece shows my new birdie salt and pepper shakers. I was so excited to find these at Target last Friday. Now I feel like a true blogger! and I've got the birdies to prove it! This view shows the centerpiece. The base is a frame with blue paper, next a cake plate, then a smaller footed plate, topped with a broken ceramic/china birdhouse -- that baby is heavy! It would take a strong branch to hold this birdhouse. Here we have a small nest with eggs, and a sweet angel holding two birds. Now we see a bird on her nest in a teacup. This little birdie is so fat, I don't think she's laid her eggs yet! A view from above. This little grasshopper better hide quick! (or he may find himself being served for birdie lunch) I hope that you've enjoyed your visit. Now be sure to stop by Susan's at Between Naps On The Porch for more Thursday Tablescapes. Thanks so much for stopping by!
