First Table of Spring

Today I'm joining Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Stop by and enjoy all the beautiful tablescapes.

After all the rain and a very cold Winter here in Alabama I couldn't wait for the first signs of Spring so I could change my table settings and spruce up the house with brighter colors. I have been cleaning out a storage building where I stored a few sets of dishes and accessories. I thought I would share a Spring table I set with some of my newer pieces and some old favorites.
I love bright colors and for everyday use, a simple table. The sun was very bright on the day I took the pictures so I couldn't open the blinds or the glare would be unbearable. Let's have a closer look at the table.

I love these napkins. They are the newest addition to my napkin collection.

My beautiful Fitz and Floyd candleholders were a gift from my husband many years ago.
I hope you like my first table of the Spring. It's so bright and cheerful.

Thanks for your visit. I see you found some pretty napkins too! Also love those water glasses. Did they actually come from Williamsburg?? (I used to love to go to the Pottery Shop when I lived in that area)
Very pretty tablescape. Glad I got to see it as I LoVE dishes, etc! :)

Hi Susan,
Love your spring table! Those napkins look great and tie it all together. Wanted to tell you a secret: I found those Spode fish plates at TJ Maxx Homegoods. Shhhh! Hope you can find them. --Delores

Oh it's gorgeous! And I love your Old Williamsburg! I have those in amber wine glasses. Yes, I would love to see your Ivy collection!!!! I am SO jealous! I am going to do a larger table and am planning on using Ivy intertwined with moss and cream candles, just haven't found the right candles yet!
