Spring Flowers Tablescape

Hello all my dear sweet friends! 

I was away from blogging much longer than I intended.  
Since Easter, it's been one thing after another 
and unfortunately, not all has been good.  

May's calendar is chock full...I'm exhausted just thinking about it.  
I won't bore you with all the details, 
so let's get a little Spring tablescape going instead......

I haven't tablescaped in some time, so
this one is simple & sweet. 

We are finally seeing signs of Spring!
Don't get me wrong, it's been chilly and rainy,
but at least the daffodils have bloomed!
(the tulips are holding out on me though)

I love this tablecloth from Kohls.  When I started this tablescape,
I drove myself nuts playing with dishes of all the colors in the tablecloth.
Finally, I managed to narrow it down by removing the majority of them.

Pink cabbage plate & bowl:  Bordallo Pinheiro (Tuesday Morning)
White chargers:  Oneida Outlet
Place mats:  Home Goods
Green flatware:  Home Goods
Napkins:  Bed, Bath & Beyond
Goblets:  Dollar Store

I used a small basket filled with assorted flowers for the centerpiece,
a couple of small crystal candlestick holders,
and that's pretty much it!

I told you it was simple & sweet!

I really look forward to getting around & visiting all of you soon.
I've missed you all so much!

Darling table scape. Sorry to read about your month being so hectic, and hoping that everything will even out, and get better too. Hate when things go scatty-whompus and we are helpless to do anything about it.

May this week be a good one for you and for your family.

Thanks for the beautiful table-scape inspiration !

Smile :)

Wow, Wow, Wee! Love the table. So fresh like Spring. What a great combination of color. I am your most recent follower. I love the name of your blog. I thought, "Sound like me. Let me take a look." An incoherent mind could not do what you do!

Hi Gina and your tablescape is so pretty! I too, just that springy tablecloth and the pink dishes looks so perfect with it. Oh, I didn't realize you lived in New York! Wouldn't it be great if we could meet up sometimes? Thanks for popping in to see me.
be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

So glad to have you back and hope everything is looking better. The tablescape may be simple, but it is most definitely sweet and very pretty. I adore your dishes!
