As we get ready for another winter storm, I decided that I really needed to add some color to my house. The dreary weather outside doesn't have to be reflected inside. Once in a while I set a table that just makes me happy when I see it. This was one of those tables. I started with my white American Atelier Bianca Leaf Square plates that you have seen often on my tables. They are topped with golden yellow dinner plates that are simply marked with a "B" on the bottom. They were a recent TJ Maxx purchase for $2 each.
The same TJ Maxx visit produced my first April Cornell table linen. I loved the colors in this table runner. A few spring touches are added. The chippy green and white bird jar will show up in a vignette somewhere else in the house soon.
I had to have the light on to take this picture,
it changed the colors slightly.
I found this stemware at Goodwill for $1 each. I love them.
With all of the yellow on the table,
I chose gold flatware that I've had for many years.
Miniature Crate and Barrel vases become votives for the evening.
The focal point of the table is this old English pitcher. My mother bought it for me decades ago and I always used it filled with flowers. I'd forgotten about it and when I bought the table runner I knew I had to pull it back out for this tablescape. It is filled with baby's breath and bright yellow tulips. Is there anything better than tulips on a dreary winter day?
A porcelain blossom and shot glass votives finish the centerpiece.
From above you can see the layered napkins. I combined new (Walmart) blue napkins with vintage white napkins and tied them with a bit of yarn.
Of course, we have to see the table by candlelight...
I am joining Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch for
Tablescape Thursday. Please take time to visit her
beautiful blog and see all the other table settings.
