Although I know I am technically wrong, in my mind the start of March means Spring has sprung! What better way to celebrate the beginning of this beautiful season than with a fresh tablescape for your next dinner party!?!
The reason for naming this table "First Signs of Spring" is because I used both winter and spring tableware to create this scape. For the place setting, I found the blue placemats at Home Goods (similar option here). Rattan chargers from World Market were a new acquisition and in addition to this tablescape, I cannot tell you how excited I am for all of the future spring and summer tablescapes I have planned for these fabulous dinnerware accents. I used my everyday dishes and my favorite crisp white restaurant napkins rolled up in horn napkin rings. I kept my drinkware uniform by selecting Riedel water goblets and bordeaux glasses. For more suggestions on wine glasses, check out my post on Sharing a Different Perspective on Wine Glasses. For the centerpiece, I opted for a simple glass vase filled with beautiful and very fragrant hyacinths ("ala" Trader Joes!), Tortoise Votive Holders, horn salt and pepper dishes and a Gold Round Metal Tray to corral the look.
While spring may still be a few weeks away, I must say that I am having a really good time preparing for its impending arrival!
