My "TWEET" Tablescape Thursday...
Thank you for visiting me for Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch! Please visit Susan to see what she and her participants are sharing today!
I designed this week’s tablescape using three "Tweet" Birdhouses, A Little Cloche with a birds nest inside, ceramic crackled birds; sitting on grapevine nests and a few other birds scattered about. The ceramic white bird finial was purchased from Michaels as was the tin bird above the birdhouses.
The table cloth and napkins where recently purchased at Home Goods. They are Ralph Lauren in yellow and blue floral. The napkin rings are a pretty blue, with jewel like circles, I thought they were pretty and added more whimsy to the table. The round yellow place mats where a recent purchase from Bed, Bath and Beyond. I wanted the place mat to make the plates stand out from the floral table cloth. The wine glasses; also from Home Goods are Palm. The White ironstone plates are from JC Penney. I just had to have the precious blue and white polka dot plates with the little bead trim. I spotted them at Home Goods, and had to have them along with the square polka dot bowls to match! They are the sweetest set of dishes; I am really going to enjoy using them in many ways.
I hope you enjoyed my "Tweet" tablescape as much as I enjoyed designing it. I hope your day is filled with Sunshine. Your kind comments are very much appreciated!
I read this recently at another blog, (I'm sorry I can't remember which one) and will leave you with this:
Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without words,
And never stops at all.
