Spring is definitely in the air here in Western Australia - sadly we have had a very dry winter so all those pretty little flowers that love to self-seed in a cottage gardens just haven't happened.
I was shopping last week and found these pretty little butterfly covered plates - just the thing for a spring table!
They really are made in my colours - pinks and greens! I got the four plates all in a lovely pink box for $7.50. I tried my hardest to save the box but it was such a tight fit I couldn't remove the last two plates so I had to attack it with a large knife!!
I thought my silver chargers looked kind of spring like.
For my centre piece I used my cute white cake stand (without the cover) and piled up all the pastelly candles I could find in the house. I know purple isn't really pastel but I needed one a bit higher for the centre so in it went.
I used my craft punch and made tiny little butterflies to sprinkle all over the white cloth.
Even the silver flatware is shining nicely today!
What a pretty little pattern my cake stand makes on the cloth. I love this candle with the mauve dried flowers in it- so pretty.
This lovely birdhouse with the pale green roof matches so nicely with my teapot and creamer and soft green Royal Albert teacup and saucer.
My champagne glasses look a little apricot colour here but they are a very soft pink. I have had these for years but I still love them and use them a lot.
More pretty candles in soft spring colours.
I really like the candles set up high like that. My mind has been starting to think about my Christmas table and I have been wanting something to lift the centre piece up a bit so maybe this could be an opition.
The candles looked so nice once it had got a bit dark - candle light is just so magical!
