Posts Tagged ‘Spring Tablescape’

I enjoy entertaining, one of my favorite things to do is to create a beautiful tablescape, I feel so great when guests come into a room and that look of delight comes over them.

This coming weekend is Palm Sunday, so the thought of how to decorate my table was on my mind. I have a beautiful Forsythia bush in my yard that is so beautiful this year, we have had warm weather and it has bloomed early so I thought I could start there.

Color???? Well I usually use a green china that I have for spring, but this year I will not be home for Easter Sunday, I thought we would really set an elegant table with Mother Theresa coming for Palm Sunday dinner. Tradition and faith are a big part of this household (as I’m sure you’ve discovered, if you read my blog), I have my menu planned, and my tablescape already decided.

 To begin, you must make the decision that the iron is your friend, I know, I know we don’t really feel that way but in this case your table should start off with clean crisp linens that are flawlessly ironed. It’s kind of like cooking a great meal the freshest ingredients make the dish, so it goes with a table the linens will shine through all the glamour that will adorn your table.

My choice of plates, black and white china for this occasion I decided to do gold chargers, I love to use chargers I feel that they pull everything together and really add a sense of elegance or whimsy (depending on the occasion).

So here we are Mother Theresa’s silver and a touch of crystal. Wella!!! We are done!!

Now for a full view!

What will you do with your table for Spring. I hope I’ve given some inspiration to you, enjoy the holiday!! As always stay tuned…
