Spring Flowers Tablescape


Blooming crocus bulbs are only available for a couple of weeks each year.  The crocuses that I am using in the centerpieces today came from our local grocery store.  For whatever reason they were marked down to one dollar a pot.  I used six pots and combined them with the violas that will get planted in the yard when the weather warms up a bit.  I kept the color pallet on the neutral side for the most part.  I had already bought the wooden planters and the leaf plates prior to Kathleen's Let's Dish Challenge for using  birds~eggs~nests for her Let's Dish on April 9th.  I had the nests and eggs in my stash from previous years.  I wanted to keep with a more muted design and was on the lookout for birds that would blend in with the rest of the design.  As luck would have it Marc's (my favorite close-out store) just happened to get some small brown birds that suited my plan perfectly.
 Spring Tablescape, burlap, birds, dragonflies.
The wooden planters and the small brown birds came from Marc's last month at 99 cents each. The table runners,  napkins,  large & small leaf plates,  and the rabbit ornament all came from Marc's.  The dragonfly water glasses came from Goodwill, the chargers are from Hobby Lobby (only $1.50 each at half price), the flatware was thrifted too.

The hand blown etched water glasses are for my DIL,  she loves dragonflies.  The S&P shakers are for dear DIL too.
I added a colorful Welcome Spring sign to the table after I had taken most of the pictures.

The stack starts with the burlap charger from Hobby Lobby.

For the Dinner plate I am using the Park Design Enchanted Forest leaf plate the I found at Marc's.
For the salad plates I used the same Certified International Patricia Brubaker floral plate that I used in the Bunny table last week. It just suited the design so well.  The napkins look as if they were made to go with the salad plates.
The small leaf shaped B&B is from the Enchanted Forest collection too
The stack is topped with a rabbit ornament that is from Marjolein Bastin's Nature's Journey collection. Also found at Marc's.

The eggs and dragonflies are hidden around in the planters.

The rabbit candle holders are from Marc's several years ago.

Chetah (my cat) happened to stroll by just as I took this picture of the rabbit candle holder.

The bunnies have been multiplying throughout the house.  They have taken up temporary residence on the shelves in the dining room. All of the bunnies are thrifted.
