Spring With Color! (T)

I chose my striped tablecloth to brghten things up.

Lots of colors including whites, purples, deep reds, pinks and blues.

This mix kind of stretches the color spectrum.  Unfortunately the lilies aren't open and the hydrangea is going down quickly and I don't know if the roses are ever going to open. 


I matched the antiqued metal handles with the napking rings.

The bottom plate I chose to add a little cozy country appeal.

I chose these salad plates because they had a lot of the colors in the flower arrangement.

Blue flatware and napkins enhanced the blue from the dishes.

I chose these glasses because of their blue and green coloring which are colors in the dishes.

I've started a bunch of caladiums in peat pots that you can see in the background.  Those will be there for at least another month. 

Spring is coming along up here but slowly.  My tulips and daffodils will be blooming soon though and I can hardly wait!

Yellow Roses & 43rd Wedding Anniversary (T)

 

A glowing bunch of yellow roses just in time for our 43rd Wedding Anniversary which is this week!

I wanted a blue and yellow mix so I went with these dishes from Pottery Barn.  Interesting there is no pattern name on the bottom but I looked up my orders and they are called Sophia.  The tablecloth is from Williams Sonoma, called Vintage Floral Jacquard.

I chose these seagrass chargers for their shape, slightly curved upwards and the bamboo handled flatware to compliment the dishes.  

 I always love yellow and blue mixed. 

When I picked out the wedding cake  back in 1978 I had chosen yellow roses with vines going from one to the other.  Our wedding invitations were a soft yellow embossed with roses too.

 

The champagne flutes sit on some beaded seashell coasters I found at Home Goods


A quiet dinner with some friends...

 
Happy 43 to my Loving Husband and Cheers to many more!

Yellow Roses and the Credenza

 

 Ah back in the kitchen area.  I decorated the top of the credenza (again).   Got two dozen yellow roses and I'm in love with them!  I love the flavor of lemon and these remind me of lemon meringue pie!
 
 I used some of the same elements but differently as I did back on Jan.7, 2021

 
These Pottery Barn candlesticks have been used so many times, they were a good investment!  I don't always use them as candlesticks though!

This is a new metal planter from Hobby Lobby.  There were three sizes and this is the smallest.  I put styrofoam in the bottom and bought 4 of these flocked lavendar bushes as far as they'd go in and them added moss to finish it off.  Do you know that they did away with the 40% coupon for anything regular priced?  They said it's because they have so much on sale they don't feel it's needed any longer.  I beg to differ but what can you do?

 Back to these yummy roses!

Some are ever so lightly tinged with soft pink on the edges

 Outside.  I almost hate to show you, but it's reality!  I have tulips, daffodils and primrose growing.

 I picked away a lot of the brown but there is still more to take off.  I'm impressed with how much larger it has gotten.
 
Love this bright red color.  These will bloom for a good while
 
I bought 4 soft pink colored Primrose and added them to my pink garden.  As many of the oak leaves I have removed I'm always surprised how many are still showing up!

Well that's it for me!

I will be joining

A Stroll Down the Easter Parade!

 

I'm starting my Easter decorating with a parade! 
 
This was last year's find, an FAO Schwarz bicycle with bunnies!

I found another this year that I couldn't resist!  The tall Easter bunny was from last year and has a nice basket in the back.
 
An Easter egg tree with hand painted eggs.  I believe the tree and eggs came from Pier 1 a while back.  I do miss the store.

These three young bunnies will soon be carrying out duties like their parents, delivering Easter eggs!

I got this bunny this year.  Loved the violas!

She's actually a cookie jar but I wanted her as a statue so she is!


Love the pretty painted eyes.  The pair is from Fitz & Floyd from many years ago from a group called Poppies.

Her eyes are pretty too!  From Home Goods.



Thank you for joining me as we take a Stroll Down the Easter Parade!
