Spring Green Tablescape

Wow, I can't believe it's Tuesday already! It's footy finals time here and Mr FH and I travelled to the city on the weekend to see our team play and win!! One more game to win then the grand final. Each week I try to fit in time to do extra posts and before I know it it's time for Tuesday Tea Parties.

Gorgeous spring days are on the menu at the moment!! Way too nice to stay inside so I lugged things outside and set a pretty table.

It  all started when I cleaned out my fabric cupboard and found this lovely piece of rose floral fabric. Just enough for a table runner. 

I have this lovely green floral china. Sadly I don't have much - I actually bought a few odd pieces (just enough for a setting for two) which I have displayed on the family room walls but now I wish I had a complete set.  Like I need another dinner set!! LOL

It really is so pretty. I love the vines twisting around the rim.

 Even the reflection of the blue sky matches the table...

I was trying to get some shadows on the table without it being to dark. Looks like I also have a little bug on the cloth. I guess you get that when setting a table outside.

The last table I did outside I had rain to contend with but this time I had  the wind!

Gorgeous spring time sunshine shining through!!

I love these wine glasses. I must have had them for twenty years I think. I bought them along with some pink champagne glasses from a grocery store for very little and have used them so much it's amazing.

Layers of fabric cover my old garden table. I have lots of table covers out of this lovely voile in many different colours - it just seems to add something to a simple setting.

Your table is just lovely even if it is for just two. Enjoy them and hopefully you might find some more. They are very pretty, I can certainly see why you would want more of them.
