Spring Tablescape

Now, I'm not a professional like http://thetablescaper.blogspot.com/ or
http://vignettedesign.blogspot.com/ or http://www.classiccasualhome.com/
or http://tablescaping.blogspot.com/ but I do enjoy setting a lovely table and try to change with the seasons as much as I can. I change my table decor so often, I'm not even really sure what my "normal" / everyday centerpiece is.

Last year was the first time I tried to do a Spring theme. I wanted to start decorating right after Valentine's Day and it needed to be something that would stay appropriate until I changed over to my beach/summer tablescape. I knew I didn't want an Easter theme and I had seen some beautiful shabby chic/earthy/natural schemes I wanted to duplicate. I wanted it to be very natural, very green, kind of rustic. I wanted topiaries, succulents and nature accents. I wanted it to feel like you were dining al fresco. Here are a few photo inspirations:












I love doing the same themes over and over because I always add new pieces, move things around, try a different use for an item, etc. I like when the table sort of evolves and everything just falls into place. So now here's my finished version:



The crock in this photo is actually from a line of candles we carry in the gift shop at work and the burlap table runner was an Etsy find.
I love these Gail Pittman plates and am always on the look-out for pieces on e-Bay.




The birdcage candle holder and butterfly print are new this year and the plate with the bird's nest on it is an Earthborn piece made locally in Alabama http://earthbornpottery.net/newsite/

The choche is new as well and has a cute little snail sitting on top.
