Okay, I give up. It’s March and I am calling it spring despite the date. Besides, the college students have Spring Break this week, which gives me a chance to breathe, catch up and spend the week in the garden.
So I decided to have the girls over for lunch and whipped out my favorite floral tablecloth.
My favorite type of vase, a big bowl of tulips anchored in the cabbage bowl with an antique frog.
Start with my every day Mikasa French Country dishes...
And a cabbage salad plate... Love anything cabbage, I even brought cabbage plates home from Paris when we visited.
Top with these soft yellow accent plates, love the color.
Cabbage bowls for a pretty strawberry soup. Small but I have a wonderful menu and the first course should be small.
I love the back lit table centerpiece.
Green flatware, a real bargain at $17 at TJ Maxx
Green stemware, another bargain at Target several years ago.
My very fun yellow April Cornell napkin rings. I love these and think I may use them as a pattern for any number of cloth napkin rings.
A yellow tea pot for after dinner coffee.
Yellow Basket ready for dinner rolls.
Super cute cabbage salt and pepper shakers
Non matching mugs and cups. Both Mikasa but they look pretty on the table.
This table, set up for several days, made me smile every time I looked at it. Spring has sprung, at least on my table scape.
The boys helped me set the table and take pictures.
Get yourself a bowl of tulips and make yourself dream of warmer days.
