Spring Green!

Spring Green! 020

Welcome to The Tablescaper.

Spring Green! 005

I so enjoy these lovely days of Spring.

Spring Green! 048

It’s warm enough for flowers burst forth…

Spring Green! 054

…yet still cool enough to enjoy.

Spring Green! 035

Green is the color of Spring!

Spring Green! 006

With bits of it popping up all over.

Spring Green! 010

The mornings are crisp like a green apple.

Spring Green! 049

Many days are filled with sunshine…

Spring Green! 020

…and the occasional shower.

Spring Green! 034

While most evenings still enable a bit of cuddle time.

Spring Green! 056

Ahh… the days of Spring are fleeting and the hot humid days of Summer are just around the corner.

Spring Green! 046

Enjoy them while you can!

Spring Green! 013

The gorgeous green tumblers are by Anthropologie and were a birthday gift from my good friend Kathleen of Cuisine Kathleen. I adore them! The clear goblets are from Villeroy & Boch.  The flatware was purchased at the Williams Sonoma outlet. The place mat is from Ikea.

Spring Green! 042

Spring Green! 059 The napkin rings were a Christmas Tree Store bargain and the napkins from HomeGoods.

Spring Green! 060

Spring Green! 061 I had been eyeing these cake plates at HomeGoods, but really couldn’t rationalize more white plates, until they were in clearance! At $1.49, I couldn’t resist!

Spring Green! 062

The green dinner plates were from a recent trip to Lancaster and a Visit to Reading China and Glass.

Spring Green! 065

Spring Green! 067 And when I saw these gorgeous chargers at HomeGoods, and they had 12 of them (you know 12 is my magic number) it was all over.

Spring Green! 068

Hope you’re enjoying these last days of Spring!

I’m joining the following parties:

Hi darling, absolutely love your table. The green is so fresh and cool looking. Your candles in the white compote jars are incredible. I don't recall seeing napkin rings that look like love knots.. the perfect topping to a gorgeous table..sure wish we had a Homegoods close to us.. then again maybe I'm better off.. lol
hugs ~lynne~

Blondie's Journal said...

Everything is so fresh and pretty! I fell in love with your new white plates and chargers. And the white flowers, lilies? Beautiful!


Debbie said...

How beautiful and springy this one is! I understand exactly what you mean about not being able to easily justify more white dishes, but I'm glad you got a deal on those because I like them.

I love the knot in that napkin ring. Even though the whole thing is lovely, I actually think that one thing is my favorite part of all.

kitty said...

I love that shade of green as it's so soothing and calming. You find great bargains, too!! I love your gifted Anthropologie glasses from Kathleen.

PAT said...

Those chargers!! Be still my heart! Gorgeous table. I love the green and white.

Bonnie said...

Love all your dishes and how you layer them. You find so many nice things at Home Goods. I wish I lived near one to enjoy finding great finds like you. The green colors are so crisp and gives me a good feeling.

Dani said...

What a beautiful arrangement. I love all the green! It's elegant and cozy at the same time.


Kathleen said...

Love every component of your green table! The white plates are so pretty, and I love the napkins too!
Beautiful table!
Thanks for linking to Let's Dish!
I am anxiously awaiting a dish report from today!

Tammy at Tammy Loves Dishes said...

This is a beautifully serene setting. The soft greens and white are just lovely. I adore those chargers! They look so nice peaking out at the bottom of your plate stack.

Judy Bigg said...

Beautiful table, Love the design on the white plate and a great price. I'm going to try green and white, don't think I have ever done anything with those together, you are inspiring me.

Marlis said...

Wonderful table.. the chargers would have sent me to dish heaven. They are just fabulous. Loving your dessert plates too.. so fabulous. Great great table.. Have a great week, xo marlis

Judy at GoldCountryCottage said...

A very beautiful tablescape. Green really is a Spring color..Happy Wednesday..Judy

Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) said...

Your glasses are wonderful and so are those chargers!!! I have not seen them. If there were 12 they were definitely meant for you. Usually I have to go to a few HGs to find 12 of anything. Have a wonderful evening. Linda

Donna@Conghaile Cottage said...

"Simply Refreshing"! I LOVED your details and those LARGE WHITE CANDLE Holders are "WONDERFUL"!
I too would have bought those cake plates "AND" the chargers...OKAY, "AND" numerous other beautiful accessories you've displayed. LOVE IT ALL!
Have a FUN week,
Big Hugs,

Designs By Pinky said...

OMG, those chargers are TDF!!!!!!!!! Just gorgeous! I have never seen dishes on clearance at our Home Goods!!?? What a deal! May I ask how much the chargers were? I love the green and white combo. Do you live near Lancaster???????????????? I live 45 mins. from Reading china and glass and go there often! XO, Pinky

Zuni, Chickadee Home Nest said...

I'm typically not a fan of green, but I LOVE this green, and I love this table! I love the napkins and your bargain dishes from HG are beautiful!! You absolutely could not pass them up (that's in case you needed reassurance). :) I'm glad to read that you're still considering June 6 spring--I am too, and as I worked on my post I thought others many not think of June as spring (though technically on the calendar it is). I always feel blessed when we have these lovely spring days before summer instead of going right into the heat of summer. Lovely table, Alma! ~Zuni

Entertaining Women said...

Well dang, I was in Frisco, Texas just a week or so again....but I chose a trip to the CTS instead of HG. I would have had those chargers in a New York minute, too. They are wonderful. I am in like with the wonderful green in the placemats. I've never been to Ikea either. There's also one of those in Frisco. Another trip. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

Diane said...

This table looks so - fresh! Apple green is one of my favorite colors. I think it has something to do with an apple green and white gingham dress I had, when I was a little girl. All of your pieces are a lovely and unique. Great table - thanks for sharing!

The Decorative Dreamer said...

Beautiful! I love this color combination so much. I really like your white lantern. I am in love with your pretty napkins though. They are so attractive!

Scribbler said...

Really lovely table! Green and white is so refreshing -- just begging for a cold salad meal

Linda @ A La Carte said...

This table is gorgeous and such a pretty color combo!

Alycia Nichols said...'re still getting some Spring weather there? Must be nice! We jumped straight into Summer here! High near 90 today, in the 90s over the weekend expected. This is crazy!!! I would still love to have 72 degree days and 55 degree nights to savor! Your table is a beautiful reflection of the wonderful weather you're having! I don't blame you on the cake plates...when they're that reasonably priced, you just HAVE to go for it. It would be criminal not to!!! The chargers are really pretty, too! I love the unusual shape and design. Very slick! Green is such a soothing color, and you chose the perfect hues. Enjoy these days while you can! Have a happy weekend!!!

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

That shade of green is my very the salad plates...even better at that great price....
I love the anthro glasses...great gift from Kathleen!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Dani said...

Curtains in My Tree said...

A Williams Sonoma outlet sound like heaven to me , didn't even know there was such a thing.

No Ikea here either . For years I didn't like green but now I think it's so pretty
as usual your table is devine

Marigene said...

Beautiful table! I love the soft greens with white. Some really neat textures to your dishes, especially the cake plates.

lulumusing said...

Isn't it amazing how many shades of green there are this time of year? Looking out my window right now with the sun shining on all the leaves is a wonder. Your table does green justice.

Elaine said...

LOVE the soft shades of green! So clean and fresh when paired with white. You sure scored with those appy plates and chargers! And, the napkins and rings are gorgeous! Have a great weekend!

Sarah said...

Gorgeous! Spring days have pretty much drifted away here with temps in the mid to high 90s. Just looking at this lovely table is cool and refreshing. Thank you!
Love the cake plates. I've been looking to add more of this pattern. I have four dinners and four of these salad/cake plates. Wish I could find 4 more, especially in the dinner size. ;-)

Green is the color of spring! I love the shade of green on your plates, but completely fell in love with the jars containing the candles! All came together in a perfect fresh, springtime look. I appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
