Today I set a simple table for us out in the garden, where it was sunny and breezy and just completely gorgeous. It was an opportunity to relax, enjoy our lunch in the lovely spring weather, and my chance to do something pretty for Tablescape Thursday.
A vintage lace tablecloth, found last spring, is the perfect size for our tiny table for two.
These black-and-white transferware plates have been favorites of mine for about 10 years now. They’re New England Toile, by Tabletops Unlimited. I wish they were still available!
This faux pearl-handled flatware is a great substitution for the real thing! Like so many other bloggers, I found these at Big Lots last summer.
I definitely took inspiration from other bloggers for this year’s Easter decorations. These sparkly eggs were the creative genius of Amy at Inspire Company. When I saw this idea, I knew it was the perfect project for me! Vintage paperbacks, vintage buttons, and glitter, right up my alley. This one large egg sits in a vintage milk glass dish that belonged to my grandmother.
These small eggs were decorated with leftover ribbon and vintage lace trim, vintage buttons and even a freshwater pearl.
A diminutive ivy plant sits in a gravy boat, adding a little bit of spring to our table.
I hope you’ll sit outside for lunch the next chance you get, and enjoy a little bit of nature!
