Spring is trying hard to make it's way to NE Ohio, so I thought I would nudge the spring spirit and bring it indoors. This simple table is perhaps one of my favorites. I love the simplicity of the few colors and simple decorations. To me, it feels fresh as spring.

A light pink organza chair sash adds a softness to our oak chairs.

A bouquet of flowers for the center.

Why don't you sit there.

 A simple place setting, perfect for a light brunch.

This pattern is one of my favorites.

Soft ceramic flowers adorn the base of the bouquet.

 Do you prefer tea or coffee? 

Soft sunlight bathes the table, promising to bring warmer temperatures with it. Maybe spring really is coming after all. 

I'll be meeting up with Susan over at betweennapsontheporch for Tablescape Thursday. Join me there for an inspiring array of tablescapes.

A Touch of Easter

This Easter we welcomed family and new friends to our table. I wanted the table to be fun, yet have a touch of elegance so that everyone who graced us with their presence would feel special. 

And of course, we had to have a bunny near by.

My centerpiece was a vase that I purchased at Pier 1.  I then inserted a smaller vase inside, then filled the gap with inexpensive jelly beans.

It looked really cool from the outside.

Then I place purchased bouquets of tulips inside the inner vase.

And this was the result.

I had some left over tulips so I placed them in my newest vase, also found at Pier 1.

Everyone got an Easter Egg surprise at their place setting.

Yellow and sherbet colored napkins were embraced by my new favorite napkin rings.

Clear bowls were used for the salad so that we could see the colorful plates beneath it.

Everyone enjoyed a good meal and good fellowship.

Thanks for stopping by. I
