Hoping For Spring Tablescape

Has your weather been a little cold and dreary lately like ours has been? Yesterday I didn't even go outside the weather was so awful. Today should be the same, but in the next few days it's going to warm up. Can I get a Halleluiah???
Which leads me to the tablescape... Look a little like Spring? Definitely wishful thinking!

 Nothing new here, just dishes and accessories I already had re-arranged.
 Dinner plates are Mikasa Italian Countryside, placemats were from Marshall's many years ago. Flatware is by Wallace, not sure what pattern. Placemats & napkins from HomeGoods. Water glasses from Target.


The hurricanes were purchased several years ago for a party  & are most likely from HG, Marshalls or TJ Maxx. And of course, my little burlap wrapped votives.




Saw the flowers on a Costco run and couldn't resist!
Next week I'll show you my new dishes and flatware...been spending too much time indoors and on Amazon!

Would love to hear what you do when the weather is dreary outside and all you want to do is climb back into bed. What motivates you?

Would love to hear about it!

  1. So pretty with your touches of green that I really love all year long. I enjoy your blog and became a follower. I have the same set of Mikasa Italian Countryside dishes after seeing them on Stonegable and Far Above Rubies lovely blogs. I also love the hurrucaines with twig ball shapes…a great idea!

  4. The table gorgeous! Love the flowers and the touches of green. Your chairs are still my favorite :) It has been so cold and dreary here, too, but it is supposed to start clearing up this afternoon and the sun is (hopefully) going to make an appearance!!!!! This weekend is supposed to be nice and warm - my toes are hoping for flip-flops!

  5. Your table does look like spring and I am so ready for it! Been in a funk lately so I really am trying to kick my rear in gear! I find when it is dreary outside I either spend too much time on the computer or I spend money. I need sunshine!!!!

  6. Halleluiah, Halleluiah!! I'm so ready for spring ~ my garden is calling my name and my boots were made for walking (in warm weather, that is). But while I'm stuck inside sewing pillows and window treatments for the new homes, I'm dreaming of the Disney Dream vacation with the Fabulous Five. I LOVE the white flowers on your beautiful table!

  17. It's so great when you can take things you already own and make such a pretty table! I do a LOT less shopping these days which forces me to become more creative. I love those salad plates. The cutwork on them is so pretty!!! You and Mr. Fanatic have a great week! :-)

  30. Pam, that's such a pretty spring table!! Love the green so much. I love those salad plates too. I do not have any of those. I did get a silver champagne bucket finally from ebay. I hope it looks good in person. I'm planning on using it for the centerpiece at my parent's 50th anniversary next month. I loved seeing yours and knowing you have two is just not fair, lol!!

  34. The rattan balls in the glass container are so effective...great choice. The greens and natural textures do indeed give hope for the Spring that will appear at some point. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Looking forward to seeing your new dishes! Cherry Kay
