Hello Sweet Friends,
Hope this finds you well, happy and
Have to say I have been under the
weather this week, a virus I presume,
started with a terrible burning throat,
then body aches and headache and
just feeling drained. Am feeling
some better but not there yet!
Hoping I will be up to watching
our lil darling tomorrow,
but guess we will see....
Thought I would show you our
Mother's Day table today.
It started with these pretty lil appetizer/
bread plates I bought back in March at
HomeGoods, when we were in Asheville.
I had saved them for a special occasion,
and this was it.....then I was looking for
a tablecloth and thought this lovely green
and blue floral was perfect, I got this in
Asheville too, at Target but last Spring.
Had trouble finding some green flowers
at the grocery store, so hubby checked
Sams and they didn't have any, so he
went to Target and there they were....
I had wanted to use POMs, they look sort
of like white daisies but have lime green
centers, just in case you aren't familiar
with them, but there just weren't any to
be found this year, but
these Mums worked out great!
These glass candleholder left over from
Dee's Wedding celebration come in so
handy many times.
Then, I used my new basket with some
white and green faux hydrangeas to
fill in the end of the table.
Since I had decided to use white dishware along
with the pretty lil bread plates, thought maybe
I would use my white basket too. Liked how
it looked................with all the white ware,
but definitely needed the color of the blue
Here was Megan place, she was the only one
with the lil flowers, and little they were.....
Have had the green placemats for a number of
years, and love how they make the white pop,
the blue glasses I bought at the dollar Tree
about a year or so ago, and just love them,
and have gotten lots of use out of them.
I absolutely love this tablecloth and think it
would make beautiful curtains, if only I had a
room to put them in. lol
Chose the artichokes to go with the pitcher
and flowers cause thought the artichoke
petals sort of mimicked the shape of
Also love love love the colors and design
of these cute lil plates, and they go
beautifully with my corelleware white
dishes, since they have a touch of white
also. I really love my corelleware, they
go with anything and they are light
and not at all easy to break and just
have a nice sleek and clean design.
They are really my everyday dishes,
but they get lots of use and you can
not even tell...............
a look down the table
a nice overview
I have had the blue napkins for a number
of years now, think I got them at Home
Goods, and I used my Wedding Silver-
ware called Scandanavia by Oneida.
Still love it to this day.............
This was my centerpiece prior to this table
scape, but it was filled with plates and pink
and white hyrangeas remember??
Another overview from the other side of table
I have more pics but decided to use them with my
Thankful Thursday post, as I wound up changing the
centerpiece a bit and did some photo affects
on a lot of them. See..... I am trying to cut down
on the number of pics per post...........lol
Well, I am finally done..............only took me
the whole day in between resting.........
Am headed to bed and still feeling crummy so
hoping the morning brings something different.
Have a lovely day tomorrow.
Love, Hugs, and
Healthy Blessings to you,
