Scrabble Tile Spring Sign

Good morning! We are having some beautiful weather today, at least until the next rain storm comes in. But that’s okay, we need it! Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? I  know my preschoolers are very excited. We hope to be able to have some fun tomorrow at school.

This weather feels like spring, so I thought I would start a spring project. I still have  quite a few pieces of this painted wood and I found some scrabble-like letters in my scrapbooking stash, so I decided to put them together. I came up with some spring-like words and tried to keep them about the same length, but some are longer than others. I started by laying them out on the board.

I figured out I would need 3 inches between the bottom of one line of letters and the top of the next. I used a ruler and drew lines across so I would know where to line up the letters.

I added a line of glue just below the pencil line and started gluing on letters, making sure they were centered. I didn’t measure for the center, I just eyeballed it, but you can certainly do that.

total aside: I did change the spelling of blossoms!

I had some blank spots where I had to fill in, so I found some cute spring flowers from my scrapbooking stash too and after playing with it for a bit, found the right combinations. I ended up using only the yellow and pink.

I placed it on my mantle with a cute little bird who is ready for spring too!

I made the spring banner a couple of years ago and thought is was the perfect touch across the window.

Turquoise & White Spring Tablescape

Just one more week and it is officially spring!! We have definitely been having the ups and downs of spring weather over here. We have one day of rain and then later in the week we are wearing shorts! I am so looking forward to wearing more springlike clothing. I’m getting tired of my winter stuff!

I always have fun coming up with new ways to decorate my table for the seasons. The table we use was my grandparents. We refinished it many years ago, before we had kids, but it really needs another refinishing or painting. Because the top has seen better days, I use a tablecloth over it and it is usually this white one. This way I can do any color scheme I want. Of course, it usually includes turquoise!

I layered a burlap piece with black fleur-de-lis over the tablecloth. This was a piece from Lauren’s stash. I placed a wooden tray in the middle and filled it with springtime goodies.

I set the place-settings at the ends of the table a little different than the sides. For the side seats, I just added a turquoise plate with a pretty napkin. I will show you in a bit where the rest of the items are stored.

For the ends, I first placed a rattan place-mat and then added turquoise plates with white polka-dots and a pretty white one on top. The napkin is also turquoise and white polka-dots. A little secret-it’s the same as the other napkin, just the other back side!

Did you notice the flatware? I have had these for quite awhile and don’t use them very often, so I thought I would pull them out and let them be used. I love the little touch of whimsy!

I transformed my hot chocolate bar into a self-service bar. I have more plates, flatware and glasses for easy access. Just add the food and it is all set to go!

I love being able to change things up and I especially love decorating for spring! If you would like to take a look at last years table, here it is. Just beware-the pictures are not very good! Can we say blurry?! Here is Lauren’s table too. Hope you have a spring filled day!!

Corner News-March 5, 2016

It smells like rain!! Yay!! We haven’t had much rain this past month, so this is very welcome. The grass is so green, but now it needs mowed. The blossoms are almost gone from the trees, leaving behind the bright green new leaves. Lots of pretty color flowers too!

I received these sweet little flowers for Valentine’s Day from one of my students. She was so excited to give them to me!  My kitchen window is the best spot in the house for them, plus I get to enjoy them a lot!

I painted this little crate this week. It was just unfinished wood, so I painted it grey with a little white dry-painted over the top. The flower arrangement was created by one of my girls many years ago when they were trying to earn a badge for a girls club they were in. Of course, I still have it!

I had this little fish tank in my classroom. I had the bowl and added the foamy fish. The kids knew the fish weren’t real, but the sure were confused about the turtle! It’s always fun to keep them on their toes!

Happy Saturday!!

Springy Tablescape

Hello and welcome to winteng…sprinter…wintering?  Whatever.  The time of the year where it is too warm for winter or too cold for spring.  Where the mornings are perfect for sweaters, jeans, and flip flops; but the afternoons are greats for shorts, tank tops, and flip flops.

Oh the struggle is real!

But, nonetheless, it is getting closer to the springy weather and closer to pretty colors from all the flowers.  So, why not get started early with a pretty table setting?

full table

I really like how all of the colors came together on the table setting.  I like the pink tablecloth and how the patterned plates add to the brightness and happiness of the tablescape as a whole.

These are the two different place settings.  One is a floral plate on top of a plaid plate with a striped napkin while the other is a plaid plate on top of floral.  They look great together and the colors compliment each other very nicely.

Hobby Lobby Sign

I added this adorable sign that I purchased for Hobby Lobby.  I completely agree with this saying because who doesn’t like pink?

Flowers and Necklace

I added some pretty pink and white flowers in the centerpiece.  They sit in a mason jar that mom decorated for me for my birthday two years ago.  I also added a tree nut necklace with pink flowers that I bought in Hawaii.  I thought that it added a lot to the centerpiece.

Cupcakes

And finally, who could forget the cupcakes.  I added some delicious cupcakes that have matching blue frosting to keep with the colors of the tablescape.  They are a sweet blueberry.  Yum!

So this completes my tablescape.  I love how it turned out and can’t wait to see what my roommates think of my creation!
