I had to work really hard to get to set a table here. Most of you know that I was gone for a month and I just came home last Saturday. I got home and I almost went back to Florida after what I saw, lol. My house was a total mess, much worse that I could ever imagine. You could not even walk through here to go to the bedrooms. You have to go around the sofa to get there. There was a huge threadmill blocking both entries to the family room from the kitchen and from the foyer. And there were plants everywhere on the floor along the walkway to the hall leading to the bedrooms and packages everywhere. Rug runners all rolled up. As I started putting away the plants, I noticed even fake plants were on the floor. I asked dh what they were doing on the floor. LOL! He was watering them too. ROFLOL!!!! I guess I should have known better than to leave him by himself for a whole month. Or was he just trying to make me feel that I am that much needed?
Anyway, I worked really hard, practically all night. First I asked dh to help me move the treadmill from the entry to the window. Do you see it there? Then I moved all the plants outside and moved the fake ones to where they belong. Then, I steam cleaned the floor and unrolled the runner after the floor was dry. I opened all the packages and I am still trying to put stuff away. All these just so I could join Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/for Tablescape Thursday. To see more wonderful tablescapes, make sure you visit our lovely hostess and her other enthusiastic participants.
My inspiration for this tablescape is the quilt throw that I brought back from FL. I knew I wanted to use it as a tablecloth and create something that is spring like and what would be more springy than having bunnies and flowers? BTW, do you see the lovely sunset in the background?
I found the egg topiary in a TJ Maxx store in Florida. And so with the bunny.
I got these lavender S & P from a flea market in Vidalia last summer.
Salad plates are made by Noble Excellence in a Butterfly Quilt pattern. I used my white lace chargers from JC Penney's and some white plates that I have had for a while now but never used. The orchids are flowers that fell off my plant and I just placed them in water in a little vase I bought from Southern Living at Home.
Ruffly green placemats.
Don't you just love the water can that the bunny is carrying?
Peirced yellow napkins in ceramic bunny napkin rings.
Yes, spring is finally here. The camelias behind the pool have not stopped blooming since winter. I started hanging flowering planters on the porch.
