GARDEN BEAUTY

True Excitement
The prospect of a set of twelve in dinnerware caused my imagination to think of two tablescapes!
Dining Room
"Garden Beauty" by 222 Fifth is the catalyst for the designs.  
The teapot with the creamer and sugar bowl were a pleasant find to create a centerpiece. The pale green cake stand lifts the presentation.
Each place setting in the dining room has a colorful combination!
The hues are balanced by soft greens in the candles and napkins with the accents of bright pinks in the flatware and flowers.
The scalloped edges of the square salad plates enhance the flowered china.
The dinner plates provide the colors of turquoise, blues, celery, greens, fuchsia, and pinks!
A curving cup and saucer lends itself to a choice of your favorite hot tea!
Vintage linens is the blessing of a lovely place mat background with precise colors and garden feel.
Beautiful pink and fuchsia roses balance the centerpiece and give a touch of nature!  

Breakfast Room
Sunny setting for a casual affair!
The changes of color combinations are immediately achieved with a display of blues and lavenders!

The place setting is calmed by the turquoise linens and blue footed goblets. A casual feel is achieved by the addition of a mug.
The centerpiece is a simple combination of the matching cake stand and the beautiful white china teapot.

Dramatic purple orchids ringed with white are displayed in the teapot!
The mug is sided up to a blue stemmed glass.  
The beaded edging of the flatware creates a more formal feel and the silver adds another cooling factor.
The purple and pink flower combinations 
plus all the greenery give the windows and window seat a " Garden Beauty" of the china!

THE BUNNY FINDS EASTER

Hopping Easter 

New hickory dining table and chairs and the china cabinet all ready for Easter!
The Easter Bunny is here to share Easter!
 
I couldn't wait to share our new dining set with you! The Easter tablescape is set with Maxcera "Postcard Bunny" china pattern.
 As French sayings declare "Le Lapin", the rabbit sits among them.
 A green polk-a-dot Easter egg is displayed on a pewter bunny with the cup on his tummy on the green and white checked napkin!
Perfectly pink flatware shares a shade of pink for the party! A pink and white Easter egg has the pewter bunny now holding the cup on his back! The small brown bunny rests himself  in the setting.
 The china mug shows the blue postcard mark along with the precious French bunny and sayings.
 Delicate Bohemian crystal goblet and champagne flute are etched with lovely pink flowers which adds an elegant touch!
 These beautiful brown bunnies create enchantment to the scene with green bows, embroidery, and the repetition of green and white checked edging.
The Easter centerpiece balances the table with two carved brown bunnies dressed with green bows! The fresh bouquet of flowers has shades of bright pink, green and blue in a green glass hobnail vase!
 The vase sits on a pewter rabbit stand surrounded by colorful chocolate Easter candy for dessert!
 More Easter!
Shelves of  bunnies dressed in their Sunday best! The 222 Fifth china pattern "Bunny Land" is perfect with different colored checked trim and 4 rabbit styles. Pale green glassware has an intricate pressed rabbit design.
 Nicole Miller Home rabbits with gold ears and eggs share more Easter candy. Centered between them is a white teapot globe displaying white flowers and a monarch butterfly!
Happy Easter to Y'all!
 
Good Luck finding the Golden Egg
 at the Easter Egg Hunt!
