A Simple Spring Tablescape



There's always plenty to celebrate in Spring! In addition to Easter it is the beginning of birthday season at our place. One right after the other.




With so much going on I like to keep things simple for a festive table. Today it's my usual dried bunches, and fabric rose napkin rings by Rachel Ashwell. Potterybarn napkins are from a couple of summers ago.


I like natural colored eggs best. Our "girls" lay them in all shades of brown. Here they are cradled in a small ironstone tureen.







I love collecting ironstone, and use it as often as I can. Each setting here is different.




Vintage glassware with square bases for contrast. 









A lacy white cloth plays up the rustic touches. 

















While all the exuberant color of Spring is popping outdoors, this table might be quiet enough for even a bunny to come hopping by. . . .

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Jacqueline

Perfectly charming. You've reminded me to acquire some of those amazing eggs from a friend who raises chickens. I love the green ones, although I can't remember their name right now...sigh. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

Hi Jacqueline! Thanks for stopping to visit. You vintage items are beautiful. That linen cloth..wow! love how your brown eggs set off the table. Your photo taking is terrific! HPS! Sunny109

Marigene said...

So beautiful...I like that you used the tureen (Red Cliff?) to nestle the eggs in. Your linens are exquisite.

Haworth said...

Your white table is the perfect complement to all the Spring colors that are bursting outside. I love the square bottomed glassware. And is that an acorn or a bunch of grapes on the tureen lid? Very pretty! (Your eggs remind me of a commercial that used to play on the television here in a sing-songy voice: "Brown eggs are local eggs, and local eggs are fresh!")
