Spring fever is running high here! The weather is beautiful and it is so nice to have it be light later into the evening. I love to spend time outside, but it is still pretty cool in the evenings. So instead, I decorated the dining room table (actually the only table I have).
I received this table from my grandparents. They bought it when they first got married in 1928. Unfortunately the top is pretty scratched up and scarred from when the girls were little. I am still trying to decide if I want to refinish it or paint it. The original chairs have been put into storage. They were getting a bit creaky from too much use, so I hope one day to release them and bring them back into my home.
I covered the table with a white tablecloth and then added green/turquoise napkins. I draped them over the side of the table and really like how it looks. I added my white plates, another napkin and a small speckled egg to each place-setting.
I used a galvanized tray with rope handles in the center of the the table. I love using trays, because they contain everything, plus they can easily be moved if needed.
Haley says I usually add to much stuff to my displays, so I tried to keep it really simple. I added white tulips (faux, because I couldn’t find the real thing!), eggs and a nest, a white bird in a cloche and my signature starfish.
