Contemplating Spring Tables

   I don't know why, but when I think spring, I think of  table scapes ...  so I  am taking a stroll back from my  springtime posts  to  get some  inspiration!!   Whether  I  was planning  a Seder  meal  for Passover,

                or something a bit more  festive for Easter..

It's  just  such  fun to  work with the colors of  the season!!                                   photo Passover2012013.jpg
I  really enjoy using  my    inherited set of Syracuse  china   for     formal dinners.. even if  they are planned for just the two of's a time to bring out the Waterford, as well.

Or,  I enjoy thinking  of a new way to use my mom's apple dishes...
how  about  apple blossom time..

This is why I love to  purchase  gorgeous  fabrics and  create my own  table runners!
Homemade napkins complete the  idea!

and shouldnt every apple tree  host a nest of bluebirds??
My mother's birthday was  in April  and we often were able to  have a lovely picnic  outside,   but  one year  we had the paper plates inside,   and the tulips dressed the table.

Dining in  the sunroom was  almost like  a springtime picnic!

Yellows of spring  most assuredly  inspire me..

Especially, if there will be bunnies~!!
But truly, it won't be too long  til  I will be  thinking  Irish thoughts...

Although, now that I've  enjoyed an Irish breakfast,  this  simple fare will never do!!!

Nay, it must include lovely  poached eggs,  rashers of bacon,  baked beans,  tomatoes,  and  slices of hot buttered   soda bread. yum...  uh, no, I will  leave the  black sausage  to  the imagination.
 Yes, now I am almost giddy with the prospect of all the fun spring will afford me...

  1. Irish theme for sure-- too cold to think about spring yet, and st. Paddy's day is right around the corner!


Your comments are a huge blessing and encouragement to me~
