ic Kathe With an E: Last Table Of Spring

Last Table Of Spring

I know the temperatures 
make it seem as though it is Summer.
My favorite season is Spring
and my calendar says 
Summer doesn't arrive 
until June 20th.
So, I am clinging to these last
few Spring days!

With that in mind,
I decided to set one last 
Spring table.

  I started with a new tablecloth
from JC Penney.
You can't tell from the photos
but in real life it is a gray green
with some teal mixed in.

Perfect for the dinner plates
I found at the thrift store.
25 cents each on 50% of day.
They are marked Royal Norfolk.
I was drawn by their vintage look.
I found the robin egg blue salad
plates at Home Goods last year.
The place mats were
purchased several years ago from Target.
All topped off with a small Corelle bowl.
 For the centerpiece I used
a flowery candle holder.
It is another thrift store find.
It was a dark gold and I took
out my trusty white spray paint
and gave her a fresher look.
Instead of candles
I used bright pink
faux daisies.
 I cut some white daisies
from the front garden and put them
in my favorite bud vases from Ikea.
Real and faux mixed together.
 The water glasses are from Walmart 
and the flatware is from Family Dollar.
The simple white napkins 
were a gift from Mr. B.
The sweet spring votives were a steal deal
from Kirkland's.

So, in a few short days,
Summer will be here.
But I will not rush the seasons!
For now, in my heart, it is still Spring!

I always share my tablescapes with

  24. Hi Kathe, Spring is my favorite season also. I am always a little sad to see Summer arrive. Lots of fun in the summer, but I love the renewal Spring brings. Your table setting is lovely. The dises are really fun and I like the colors. My daisies are just about to bloom. Anxious to bring a few inside. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.

  25. Very pretty! I'm now following you on pinterest and pinned your beautiful bouquet!

  26. You're going to get pulled into Summer clawing and scratching, huh? Me, too! I am just not ready for all this hot, hot weather!!! It makes me grumpy! Your table makes me happy, though! Great idea to spray paint that candleholder (it really DOES do wonders to freshen it up!), and even more clever to top it with flowers rather than candles! Great find on the dishes!!!!!!!

  27. What a great look! I love the flowers in the candle stick holders!! Your setting is so fresh looking, and I love that it is not too expensive!

  28. Beautiful! You always do such beautiful tablescapes Kathe. Thanks so much for sharing at Creative Thursday last week. Have a great weekend.
