May Flower Tablescape

I can't wait any longer. Spring does not seem like it will ever get here! So today I decided to do a May Flowers table. We bought these floral/leaf plates way back in Feruary at JC Penney's. They were half off back then but still pricey. I will definitely be serving dinner all summer with these.

I am linking up with Susan and Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Be sure to jump over to her inspiring blog to see more great tables.

The tablecloth and napkins are another set we purchased in Syria. The spring green is perfect with this simple table. The white plates are those from Target at Christmas time. A dozen in a box.

I've used the glasses before, also Christmas at Target.

You will notice that there are two colors of the green leaf plates. We did not notice, however. We bought a set of four leaf plates, four flower plates and three flower bowls at one store. Then when we were at the second store we realized that there were two greens. So we decided to go for place settings for eight!

The flowers are alstroemeria, in three lovely colors. They come in so many!

The salt and pepper shakers are those lovely ones from Pier One Imports: $3.00 for the pair! And so cute! Who can resist?

Thank you for stopping by and enjoying some May Flowers.

LOVE your tablecloth -- so pretty! And your leaf and flower dishes are wonderful with it -- love the colors they add to the table. I'm also a fan of alstroemeria -- they last a long time and come in so many colors! Thank you for your kind comment on my blog.

Your bowls and plates are terrific. I know if I had happened upon them - I would have grabbed them. The smaller bowls are precious, the flower plates are divine and the leaf plates complete the table. Gorgeous!
