Spring Garden in the Kitchen

Last Friday night, my friends decided to have a get together dinner here again. I am excited for spring so I decided to create a spring-y table.
 My bulb pot was really showcasing a bloom of different flowers so I used it again.  This pot has come a long way, I got so much use out of it.
 I added a birdhouse that was just sitting on the window sill in the dining room, and a bird that I took from the family room coffee table.

I alternated 2 types of napkin rings, a flower and a watering can.
Napoleon bee flatware set.
 Heavy iron bunnies for name plate holders. I bought them from Pier One about 2 or 3 years ago.
 The dinnerware set is Mikasa's "Fantasy"

Bees and butterflies fly around the yard in the spring and some of them just landed here.
 Birds S & P shakers

 Sauce and small dipping plates.
This really speaks spring to me!

The gang.
Picture taking first before digging in, lol. They are getting used to it.  It looks like a lot of food but at the end, it was all gone. We all really ate so much!
A flower shaped tea set.

The cups say "I don't go to the gym, I garden" That describes me so well.

We had a wonderful dinner as usual and then we played Guesstures and had so much fun. It was hilarious!
Thank you for the visit and thanks to the hostesses. I always enjoy you coming over and always appreciate your comments.

You have the best times at your parties! With dinner and then tea and games, they must go on for long time!

This is a very pretty table and I fell in love with your Mikasa Fantasy dishes...I am going to look them up, just the dessert plates. I also love your napkins rings and place cards although I never have the use for the latter! Ha! And your centerpiece is so cute...very "springy"!!

I have to ask you make all of the food? You said it looks like a lot and it really does!! Where do you find the time?! :)

What a fun visit to your place today, as Spring has sprung there for sure. Love your fun garden tea set, it is charming. Your flatware is so exquiste. Never seen that before with bees on them. Looks like a lot of fun was on the menu there!

Very pretty and springy! The yellow placemats really make it pop!

Christine, you are absolutely the best at mixing different elements together for your beautiful tables! Love all of your spring accessories and, especially, those bunny place card holders! I am beginning to think that Spring will never arrive here. It was 34 degrees in my city in Georgia this morning - yikes!!
