The cheese, crackers, cake and wine are so yummy! Mmmmm! (I am using my imagination, Laurie, lol.) Your table is gorgeous. Has it been raining there yet. It's almost May and it has not rained here.....Christine

What a pretty spring table Laurie.
We too have had light showers the last few days and my bearded iris bloomed.
That little umbrella is adorable.

That's a beautiful house you have on your header. I loved your cake stand, it's so pretty and sassy.

Splurgie said...

Who minds a shower like that? So pretty and clever.

Glenda/MidSouth said...

How cute! The cheese and crackers sounds good with the wine, but not sure about the cake. Got any coffee to go with the cake? :-D

Lisa said...

You've shared so many great ideas here! It's all so whimsical and FUN!

Kathleen Ellis said...

How lovely, Laurie! I especially like that hand painted cake dome...did you do that? And your centerpiece is quite clever!
This reminded me of some adorable little flower plates I picked up last year...I guess it's time to get them out!
Have a beautiful day!
;-D

GrannySue said...

I'll be right there with a bottle. It's just adorable. Those plates look so good, and I adore that painted cake cover. Thanks for sharing it.

Tricia said...

What a festive centerpiece! The flower plates are perfect -- and you have them in two colors! LOVE the painted glass cakestand and cover, especially.

Megan said...

Such a fun table--even without the food--which is probably better for my diet anyways!! (;0)
I love the centerpiece.
Although I haven't started doing my own "Tablescaping" yet I am enjoying visiting everyone and oogling their festive tables.

Pretty Pretty Pretty, Laurie!:-)

I have something for your Saturday Favorites this week. Trying to get back into the swing of things, after or road trip. We've been busy outdoors every day this week. It's supposed to rain the next few days. I will believe it when I see it. If it rains, I'm sitting in the hearth room with my feet up and visit the land of blog!

Lori Lucas said...

Very cute. What a great party or shower idea!

Mimi said...

Laurie, I love this happy table...cutest ever centerpiece! Adorable little flower plates.

Just Breathe said...

Very cute table, full of Spring!

Sherry said...

Laurie,
I love your centerpiece. Very clever. So cute. The hand painted cheese dome is lovely. Every time it rains in April I tell my kids this rhyme.

What a cute centerpiece for April Showers! I always look forward to what Laurie is up to next! You are so darn creative! Love all the glasses with the flowers and the painted cake dome too.

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Hello Laurie~I can easily picture myself enjoying a little (or lot of) wine and cheese under your adorable umbrella.
I've been recouping from (minor) foot surgery and needed a pick me up.
Your springy tablescape brought a much needed smile to my face. I think your cake domes are the piece de resistance.

I hope you enjoyed the napkin tut.

Sweet wishes,
Sara
