Springtime Tablescape

February 21, 2013 by 78 Comments

Springtime excitement and the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day has me thinking about creating a fun and whimsical tablescape using my collection of “Sheep Dishes”.  I believe I’ve mentioned them before and this is the perfect time of the year to bring them out to play.  The whole set includes six of the cups, saucers, plates, egg-cups and tumblers.  It also includes, a sugar bowl, creamer and a large pitcher. Each piece offers lots of detail and features images of soft little lambs grazing in green pastures.

CountrysideI’ve set the breakfast table for the two of us.  The center of the table is a cheery display of an early morning country-side.  Lots going on here, including a small floral centerpiece,  two wire baskets holding a couple of glasses filled with dried green peas, tucked in and secure are taper-candles. More sheep and brussel-sprouts?  A little quirky maybe, but a fun touch of added color, texture and interest.

Countryside 1The wicker chargers and napkins shown here came from Pier One Imports, they fit so nicely in this rustic setting.

Countryside 2This little lamb had to be part of the tablescape,  I found him a couple of years ago. So cute with a bell around his neck. Not too far behind him is his “distant cousin” – a wooden sheep on rollers.

Countryside 4Morning sunshine is pouring in….greeting the day.

DishesThe larger plates feature the shepherd taking care of his flock.  This image touches my heart, it represents a deeper, more spiritual meaning for myself every time I glance at it.

Countryside 5I enjoyed creating this very casual tablescape celebrating this wonderful upcoming season of Spring and Easter.  I’m so glad you stopped by for another visit. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to leave a sweet note or even  “like” me on Facebook.

  15. JaneEllen says:

    OH my Moni Your table is so gorgeous. You could use that any time of year, not just for St. Pat’s day, so pretty for Spring and Summer. Love it, makes me happy just to look at the sheep and pretty candles, centerpiece. You have a great way of putting things together.
    I’ve been working on styling my shutter shelf in l/r. Got tired of wintery look, I’m badly needing bright, happy, Springy.
    Been watching “because of Winn-Dixie”, have you ever seen that movie? We must have watched it about 5 times already, never get tired of it. The dog cracks me up. It’s just a nice movie about every day people, meeting each other. I’m an old softie, romantic, emotional silly, old lady (72). Happy Days
