The Birds Landed on The Gazebo Table

I love birds and when Kathleen announced her bird tablescape party, I got excited. The weather has been so nice outside so I decided to set the gazebo table.

The blooming orange trumpets added to the color of the area, especially against the green background. Before I left for FL, the trees had no leaves, 3 weeks later, I came back and it was all green outside with so many flowers blooming. What a great welcome!

 I just cut out some flowers, placed them in a vase with water and I had my centerpiece. But of course, the table attracted the birds so they joined in.

 I started with a lace tablecloth that I bought from a resale shop, in another booth where I used to have my store. I think I paid $3 for it.
 I added my wood chargers, green linen placemats and then my square 222 Fifth "Adelaide" green and white plates. I bought these from TJ Maxx in Baton Rouge maybe a year or 2 ago and I like them very much but I do not know why I never used them until now. See the birds on them?

I debated whether or not, I should use my square ceramic white plate chargers since the plates are square, but you can see which one won.

Dragon fly tealight holders also made it on the table.

 I should have lit my candelier but I was lazy to climb up on the chair, lol.
So, I will just show it to you.

 More birds on pedestals. I had a third one here but I dropped it and it broke, but I was able to fix it later. See the iron dragon fly tealight holder and a butterfly votive holder too?

A pierced tealight candle holder and white birds napkin rings, dark bamboo handled flatware and green goblets.
 The bird is looking down into the secret garden, admiring the yellow irises blooms.
Plus this!
 Lastly, I want to show this to you to get your opinions. See the bridge? I would love to add a pond underneath but I am afraid to attract water moccasins and mosquitoes. Will I if there is a pond? I welcome any ideas or opinions on this.
 And while I was setting the table, our Northern mockingbird was laying eggs.

Thank you so much for your visits and I value your comments a lot. Join the party and visit Kathleen at
