Springtime Tablescape

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.

I’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.

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

This 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.

Morning sunshine is pouring in….greeting the day.

The 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.

I 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.
