Happy 1st Day of Spring

The table this week celebrates the first day of Spring.   Living in South Florida it will feel like Summer in a few short weeks.    We only enjoy a couple weeks of cool temps and low humidity during the year.  I really do miss the change of seasons.  In North Carolina the daffodils are blooming, the dogwoods are budding and warmer days are just around the corner.    I was able to pick up a bunch of cut daffodils at Trader Joe's this weekend to enjoy for a few days. Hopefully old man Winter is on his way out and everyone will be enjoying Spring like temperatures very soon.   











Trader Joe's had a great supply of cut daffodils this past weekend. The aroma is lovely.   I purchased the Waterford Crystal vase in Harrods while on a trip to London many years ago.   

First day of Spring 2017 tablescape. 


The silk daffodil napkin rings were found while on a visit home a few Summers ago.   There is a lovely little store in Welcome, North Carolina that offers items handmade by local Seniors.   The Senior Country Store offers so many beautiful items and it helps the seniors supplement their income.  I cannot wait to see what I will find on my next visit home in June. 











The table cloth is mostly pale yellow with green, purple and a touch of pink.   I decided to use pink napkins to pull out that pink and really show off the daffodil napkin rings.


The Spring salad plates were found while junkin' for plates in Boca Raton.   The are marked as made in Bavaria Germany by Bareuther Waldsassen.   The plate below with the yellow iris jumped out at me and I had to add them to my plate collection. The basket weave edge dinner plates were found at Goodwill a few years ago.   The white scalloped lace chargers are from Michael's.

    1. Thank you Joy! I wasn't sure how the pink and the yellow would work together, but I was happy with the combination and the colors matched the tablecloth. I'm so happy it's finally Spring and I'm sure you are as well.

    1. Thank you so much Bonnie. I L♥VE color! I wear lots of bold colorful prints and love using color in my home decor and table styling. The bolder the better. Working on a blue and white Easter table now with lots of royal blues and patterns. I just hope it's not too over the top. :)

    1. Thank you Debbie! Most ladies collect shoes.. I collect plates. I have a bit of a plate addition! I was really happy to find those German plates and they were half price at a whopping $1.50 each. That was a great deal.
