Celebrate Earth Day!

April 22 is Earth Day! Let's be aware of our environment and help protect it. Celebrate Earth Day!
When I read that Kathleen is having an Earth Day theme for "Let's Dish", I really had no idea what to create. I started imagining of what is on earth...dirt, trees, birds, animals, people, pretty much what you can see everywhere, I think. I decided to make the tablescape predominantly brown and green because that's what I see when I look on the ground.

I wanted this tablescape to be kinda woodsy since the earth has lots of trees and wood so when I passed by this driftwood case in the family room, which is actually holding a wooden domino set, I moved it on the table and placed my bird s & p shakers on it. I like how it turned out.

This monkey napkin ring holder is such a cutie! I got the set from Z Gallerie at 75% off sometime last year. Love that innocent expression on his face.

The plates are made by American Atelier in "Mehndi Brown" pattern. Dark bamboo flatware from Ross. The stems are Mexican hand blown from TJ Maxx or Marshall's, brown hem stitched napkins (forgot from where) and the plain brown plate chargers are from Horchow.

I had this globe made out of natural semi precious stones, which BTW mostly come from caves and rocks, hiding in the cabinet. I thought it would be cute inside a cloche.

I have 3 little pottery cups which I repurposed into tea light holders. I added my bird with spread wings. Looks like he is celebrating with me. It has leaves etched under him.

Such innocent monkey face!
I like how the beamed kitchen ceiling is reflected in this picture.

At first, I used brown and white polka dotted placemats but replaced them with these natural fiber ones which I obviously preferred.

Hand blown goblet and champagne flute.

The table topper is a very sheer green voile material. from tableclothsfactory.com. If you want to buy very reasonable table linens, go there.

I have a small pussy willow tree that I wanted to use as part of the centerpiece but it outgrew the pot it was in so I transplanted it into a bigger pot last week and I think it will be too big for this table now, so I scratched off that idea.
Instead, I used a faux fern instead. I see them growing wild in the forest especially by natural streams.



I didn't think I would be able to create another table before I left for FL but I found the time in between packing.

I am not just celebrating Earth Day on Aprill 22. I am also celebrating the birth of my youngest daughter Tina, who have given me 3 beautiful grandchildren..
Happy Birthday, baby girl. I love you very much!
