Step Into Spring


Spring has sprung, with inspiration this week from the many hours spent in my garden.  The Little Round Table is sporting bright colors, reflecting the hope that warm weather has finally come to stay for awhile. Details and party links at the end of the post.








Contemporary version of Betty Crocker's "Betty Bowl" is Scarlet.










Vintage pitchers in several yellow hues. Top left to right: Vintage Fiesta Ice Lip Pitcher in Fiesta Yellow and a not officially produced Yellow, Vintage Fiesta Juice Pitcher in Harlequin Yellow and Fiesta Yellow. Far right is the limited edition Fiestaware 2000 pitcher in Sunflower.  Bottom: Fiesta Jam Jars, Vintage Bauer footed cake stand in yellow, contemporary Fiesta Hostess Bowl in Scarlet.

Flatware - Cambridge

Pitcher, creamer, sugar, napkins, flower boot, red tumblers - Home Goods
Napkin rings, salt and pepper - Crate and Barrel years ago
Votives - Michael's
Contemporary Square Fiesta in Sunflower, Scarlet and Ivory - the "squares" also appeared on July 10, 2010 in another tablescape: Square Fiesta On A Round Table and Other Tablescapes With Square Fiesta

I'm joining:
Alphabe-Thursday at Jenny Matlock for the letter "Z"
You will find no "zees" in this post, so what to do??? Well, I'll just say that this tablescape has some zigs and zags and looks zippy and zesty to me!  It's zingy and goes from 0 to a 10 in a flash ! I'm also hoping this will bring some joy to those of you in zones still suffering from cold temps!  So, that's it for my letter " Z", I think I'll go take a nap and catch some zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzs.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  10. Hi Candy. I love all the layers of pattern on this table: flowers on the galosh, leaves on the glasses, embossed dishes, patterned napkins. Zip, zing, zest, indeed! Looks like you and Elaine had the same colors on your mind today...

  11. Well, my table is not talking. It's hiding in shame in the shadow of your bright, cheerful & full of fun tablescape. I just might have to serve our dinner on my red & yellow Fiesta tonight. Love that combo. The rainboot planter is adorable!

  24. So (swoon) beautiful - love it! The boot nabbed me from the start - the Fiestaware as a bright Spring backdrop. The vintage tablecloth is gorgeous. The colors just add to the joy that Spring is finally here. I found you at Between Naps on the Porch, and I "followed" your blog. Thanks for sharing with us!

  32. A fabulous layering of colors. The red, yellows and whites work back so nicely to your tablecloth. The rain boot is a wonderfully whimsical touch, too. I am coveting your flatware since I love checks, polka dots and red!

  36. Thanks so much for coming by to check out this week's table and for your generous comments!

    Susie, check out the link on the sidebar for "Storage Ideas" http://happenstancestuffhappens.blogspot.com/2010/02/where-do-you-store-all-those-dishes_25.html

    A real boot would work just as well as this ceramic one, although it would have to be leak proof. My favorite pair of garden boots went by the wayside with a leak this winter. :(

    Daphne, not only were Elaine and I doing the same colors this week, but I also used that same cloth that she has with the identical colors! Something about great minds!

    Lots of Easter tables coming up starting next week, please do drop by again to check them out.
