Spring colours

I just had to set this table last week to try to catch the lovely sunrays coming through the window. I had bought this cute fabric a while ago to make into napkins but as yet that hadn't happened so I just ironed the edges under and used it as a placemat.

 We have been having lovely spring weather which I love nearly as much as autumn. Unfortunately I am not a big fan of summer but now we have the beachhouse that certainly makes it more bearable!! I picked these pretty pale blue napkins up recently for $5 for a pack of 4.

I thought my Robert Gordon china was just perfect for a spring time table. I love the mix of pretty florals and jazzy stripes. You can see more of it here.

 How cute are these little butterfly tealights? I didn't have any holders (they had been left at the beachhouse) so I had to make do with what I had. These napkin rings turned on their side worked perfectly.

These salt and pepper shakers are new - one is a birdhouse and the other a watering can. Just perfect for a spring table.

The sun was really shining in here now....actually this photo is a bit of a give away - I had the table set up in my daughter's bedroom and you can see her bed here!

Yummy, yummy colours. 

The wall colour in the background was the perfect match for this table!

I think I might actually stitch these placemats up to use them again. Don't they just scream spring!!!

Hello SUzyQ,
this china set is really adorable. Love the happy and simple combination from stipes and flowers. That looks modern and charming together. Your napkins will turn out beautiful to that. Nice idea to use it now as place mats. Thank you for sharing this ideas.
Best greetings, Johanna

Wow! That is one cheery table setting! How refreshing to sit down to tea there in the sunlight! The tea cup and saucer are so pretty I ran over to eBay to have a look see if any were available. There is a tea pot, cake plate and tea cup set!
Thanks so much for sharing.

What a clever idea for your placemats! And I love the color of the silverware too! :) I also participated in Tablescape Thursday! Mine are #82 and #83 if you'd like to check them out :)

Again, Good job!
