Daffodil Delight table

Welcome to my Daffodil Table. I love when the daffodils arrive to herald the beginning of Spring....don't you?
Won't you enjoy me for a spring luncheon?
I love this vintage lace tablecloth that drips off the table.
I found this fun china on ebay a couple of years ago.
When I looked this pattern up, I found that it was introduced right around the time I got married - 1975.
I was able to score 6 of these green glass plates from Cracker Barrel a couple of years ago ...they were on the 75% discount shelf!
Target carried this faux ivory flatwear a few years ago too -- they were 99 cents each. I was really sorry to see these discontinued.
These flowers in the lace of the tablecloth remind me of early spring flowers blooming in the snow...we had some pretty falling snow here just yesterday....and by tomorrow it will be almost 70 degrees around here. That's sort of a typical Virginia Spring.....you never know what you'll get around here!
I found four of these green goblets at our local GoodWill a couple of years ago right around Christmas......then about 9 months later I found four more! How random is that?
The napkins came from Kohl's a few years ago and the end of the summer -- on the 80% off sale. I like the blending of the soft yellow and green....perfect for a daffodil table.
Three pots of daffodils were my only purchase for this table. These came from the grocery store....wouldn't they make a nice keepsake for some luncheon guests. I wonder if I can plant the bulbs again.
Overview of my table top garden.
I love how well this china pattern mimics the little potted daffodils.
A close up of spring in bloom.
Little glass votive holders -- holding tea lights tucked among the flowers.
So let's light the candles......
And enjoy the beginnings of Spring! Hope that signs of spring are blooming outside your window....or adding color to your tables. See ya!

  22. I swear I'm going to get my hips into a Cracker Barrel one of these days to just leisurely shop around. Those plates are really great! The daffodil ones are pretty, too, and really have that Springtime appeal! Just add a couple of bunnies and some eggs, and this would also be a fabulous Easter table! Very nice! Take care, Martha!!!!

  23. Martha,

    Thanks so much for your visit. Regarding my "new look", I've decided to just go with the gray and stop fighting a losing battle. :) Actually I'm enjoying it.

    Have a great week!

  24. Adorable...no daffodils up north here, but soon I'm sure. Love your dishes and the yellow, green and white looks wonderful and very inviting!
