Early Spring Table

I have a spring table that I would like to share with you today.  I haven't used these cabbage plates from Williams-Sonoma for 
several years, so I was happy to get them out for
 this tablescape.  I used burlap covered chargers
 to add to the layers that I wanted to create for the table.

The fresh green color was perfect for this early spring day.
I covered my table with a lovely piece of linen I bought last fall. 
 I absolute love this fabric on my table. 

 I got these napkins several years ago.
 I really like them and I wish I had bought
 more than the four that I have.

Many years ago, I bought four place settings of silver-plated flatware.  My friend and I had fun selecting pieces-- I bought four of each--but each of the pieces is different (the dinner forks are all the same pattern, the knives
 are all alike but a different pattern, etc.) 

Then, I added this round woven tray
 that belonged to my great-grandmother. 

I love the beautiful patina on this tray.

I added a little table, a lantern, some dried fern
 and moss rocks to make my centerpiece.
You don't need flowers to make a pretty table.

I decided to add this little rabbit that I have had for several years.
This could easily be an Easter table--especially
 if your little ones are all grown up.

I know many of you have had many very snowy days...I've seen those forecasts on the news.  I hope my early spring table will remind you that warmer days are sure to be here, soon!

I ADORE that cabbage leaf china, and have drooled over it for years. Such a pretty, classic table for spring, Marsha!

Marsha, Beautiful, simply beautiful! I don't know where to start, I am so enamored with all of the elements of this lovely Spring tablescape. The Tablecloth, napkins and burlap chargers are just perfect for the overall look of your table, the colors and textures work together to create a wonderful natural look that makes a perfect backdrop for your cabbage plates and your centerpiece. We are on the same page for setting a spring table. I am working on mine now using so many of the same natural elements (we must have been looking at the same Pinterest boards). I love the lantern and the bunny in the centerpiece with the woven round tray and the moss rocks. Love, Love, Love!
