My Spring Bling

 Spring has sprung....
Time for some Spring Bling!

I created my arrangement in this oversized hurricane/vase which was originally
purchased (8 yrs. ago from Crate & Barrel) to set a candle in with filler around it. 
I wanted this to appear like a garden of flowers bursting out!

This floral bundle also came with ornamental kale which I shortened to act
as a dressing around the base of the floral stems

It was snowing outside as I took these pictures, but the sun came out and 
I did a happy dance!  

I let the flowers help me decide which set of dishes I was going to use

I chose these because of their multi colored design much like the flower arrangement.  
This is a fun set with 6 patterns made by Rosanna- called LaVie Boho
The white plates are Ralph Lauren- Sophia

I chose 4 of the 6 patterns and alternated the tidbit dishes with each setting.
The flatware was set on angle to fit on the placemat.

I felt blessed that the sun was shining.  I added a soft glow to enhance this 
picture although it was beautiful in it's original form

For this luncheon lets imagine a lemon poppy seed muffin placed on the tidbit plate, cherry chicken salad served on crisp beds of romain lettuce, chilled wine (probably a Riesling) and for dessert a serving of ice cream topped with crumbled nuts and drizzled praline syrup presented in the clear glass bee stemware!

 My Spring Bling!
Now all I need is for Spring to really appear!!


  1. A little bling is always the thing. It looks so fresh, Liz. I cannot believe it is snowing again. xo

  2. Love your spring bling, it's just beautiful! I hope spring arrives soon for you outdoors because it sure did arrive inside your beautiful home!
    Great day to you!

  3. What a beautiful Spring table! Looks so very pretty!

  4. Love your sunny tablescape, especially the way you used the flowering kale to wrap the bouquet stems. So pretty.I also like the way you off set the plates on the mats. Great idea!

  5. Your spring table looks ultra fabulous! And the make believe menu is watering my mouth! The calendar might say spring but it's no where in sight here. Your lovely post sure does help!

  6. Love the kale! And pretty dishes, too. We can finally see the ground here in IL, hallelujah! You're not far behind so hang in there!

  7. What a great idea to use the hurricane vase to create a dramatic and large flower arrangement - I love it :-)

  8. I'm loving the color scheme of your Spring Bling! Your hurricane vase does make your arrangement appear to be a Garden bursting with color! Love it! Have a great day!

  9. Spring bling is just what we all need now. The vase is perfect for filling with beautiful flowers. I hope your Spring arrives soon, so you can get outside and enjoy the sunshine.

  10. I like your idea of lining the vase with Kale, Liz!
    All your plate choices shout Spring. I hope it comes soon!

  11. It's definitely Springtime in your kitchen!!! The flowers are so beautiful!! I sure hope Winter is gone SOON!!

  12. Hi lovely lady.
    I love your beautiful tablescape for Spring and your lovely flowers.. God Bless.

  13. Who needs actual Spring when we can all just pile into into a clown car, drive to your house, and sit around this beautiful table? :-) Sounds like a plan to me!!!

    I really like the way you used the ornamental kale! That's cool that it was included in the bundle. It's a beautiful, inexpensive way to add nature and texture and color to the arrangement. Using it at the bottom to obscure the stems was a great idea! The flowers are just beautiful!!!

  14. So beautiful Liz..and the way it all shines when the sun hits the table...love it..
    Love, Mona

  23. Liz,
    Love your pop of spring yellow. A lovely table and flowers. Happy Spring!

  24. You captured the palette set by the flowers perfectly Liz, what a lovely table~the purple glassware is especially pretty with the flowers and white cloth. I am so sorry it is still snowing, yikes! Hope the sun melts it all soon and spring will be outside your window as well as inside!

  25. Thank you for adding bling to what was supposed to be Spring ;). Here not so much. After the first Springly days Winter return in all its vengeance... so to look at your table and see such beautiful items and creative touches uplifts one's spirit.
    Kale to hide the flower stems - only you. Your imagination and creativy know no boundaries ahahahah
