spring table with wheat grass...

Hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Easter celebration!
We are dragging this morning after enjoying Spring Break, it takes no time for us to get into
 vacation mode around here, and today...culture shock...we leave for school at 6:45...ugh!
It's a pretty sight, my PJs, slippers and coffee. :)

I thought I'd share our Easter or Spring table setting using potted wheat grass as decoration.
I potted the wheat grass in tea cups that belonged to Mr. Simple's grandma to set at each
place setting. (I wonder if she'd ever have guessed they'd be used for planting grass?)
The blue and white ikat pattern salad plates were a steal at the day after Christmas sale.
 I only found four so I just mixed in some others I had.
I like the eclectic mix of formal tea cups, modern print plates, and geometric fabric.


Remember the 'deal' I alerted you to, here are the sample swatches I picked up at
Joann's to use as napkins.



A basket of eggs dyed in blue and green hues...



A stone bunny brought in from our garden...


White tulips picked up at the grocery store...


We had 11 guests for Easter, and I never have enough matching glasses.
I found these at Ikea, they're actually beer glasses, but I thought they were a fun shape.
 

As much as I love my white bunny fur pillows it's probably time to retire them
 for the season and find something more spring-like.

Tomorrow I'll be sharing my next project that will add a fun dose of spring
to our place.

Oh my dear friend you're back you're back!! Wahoo!
Your table looks gorgeous as usual….I love the use of the samples as napkins and the color combination and mix of patterns is so pretty. The tea cups and the ikat together are so fun, old and new, and the wheat grass in the tea cups is just adorable!! That would be a fun little shower favor. So glad you had a little spring break, hope you feel refreshed!

I love this spring tables cape with the brilliant greens. You always do THE best job with wheat grass and love the teacups! Also all the different napkins look smashing. Hope you had a lovely Easter. Is it warmer there yet?

It looks so pretty! I just picked up several sets of those ikea glasses as well for entertaining. I think they look like modern iced tea goblets!

Trying to get back into the swing of things over here too. Your table looks so pretty!!!! Love the blues and greens with the rustic wood all the freshness of the wheat grass. Knowing you, I bet you had made a delicious Easter meal too!

Lovely! I actually got some wheat grass planted 2 weeks before Easter and it was so lovely! Pics of my Easter table are on the blog today!
I was able to snag some of the fabric deals after you told us about them - did I tell you that?!! And the day I was there, when I got to the check out I was informed they were $1 that day :) :) I didn't get cool coordinating ones like you did but I got some I think I'll use somehow!

Gorgeous - my table had the grocery store tulips too. Just love tulips!!!

Dana Frieling said...

I'm sure Mr. Simple's grandma would be thrilled to see her tea cups displayed in such a pretty way. Those tulips call my name every time I walk past them in the grocery store. So springy!

The napkins turned out perfectly! I love your setting. Every year my sister grows a large container of wheat grass. I've always thought it was lovely. But I like the little teacup containers even more!

You set the most lovely tables Pam! Every detail is just perfect and I love the fabric samples as napkins! I alerted my CSIL to that deal and she nabbed an armload for a future project as did I, thanks!!! Hope you had a fab break and now that the coffee is going are back in the groove!

Jennifer @ Dimples and Tangles said...

I'm always nervous that the one time I head to school in my pjs something would happen and I'd have to get out of the car! Your table is beautiful! I love your color combo. Was at my JoAnn's today and they didn't have anything like that...boo. It's a new store and all of their samples are on flip boards now.

Hi Pam, I was looking forward to seeing your new fabric on your table. It looks fantastic! Will you be able to machine wash your napkins?

Warmly, Michelle
