We did have some spring-like weather in our area for a while. It has certainly disappeared this week with freeze warnings, sleet and snow. However, I have been enjoying the spring-like tablescape to which some of my birdies were invited.
This ‘scape was set for two to enjoy a small, romantic dinner. I brought out the birdcage I picked up at a yard sale last year and then added several of my white birds to keep us company.
Here is a close up of the little bird who perched on his branch outside the birdcage.
I used my Bordallo Pinheiro large cabbage plates on top of woven chargers. I topped these with these beautiful Homer Laughlin plates.
I love the central floral design as well as the raised edging on these plates. These compote/champagne glasses are still some of my favorites. They were a great find at one of the best yard sales I visited last summer.
I used my grandmother’s silver-plate flatware, nest-brown napkins and some yard sale white floral napkin rings.
I think this little guy invited his bunny friend to come enjoy the cabbage plates. The bunny was hand-painted by my mother during her ceramics phase. Did any of your mothers participate in the ceramic craze of the 70’s?
While in a nesting mood, I also decided to change up the plates in my plate holder. I used nest votives I found at Michael’s this year on top of plates from Home Goods and yard sale Ironstone saucers.
I am hoping for warmer weather to revisit us soon. It has almost been too cold even to go yard sailing….I did say almost. 🙂
