Did you hear the birds chirping when you opened my bog? I’ve set a table for a Spring luncheon.
White metal chargers are the base for each place setting, and I’m using my Mother’s silverware.
Salad will be served on “Prima Donna” plates. I ordered these from Joss & Main a few years ago.
Lunch will be served on plates I’ve had for about 20 years. The backs of these plates show a symbol that I can’t read, and the words,“hand painted”.
A roll and butter will be served here. (That butter knife isn’t dirty, but the photo shows a reflection of the chandelier above it – that’s my story).
Light blue napkins are held by white metal rings.
I’m using my Mother’s stemware. We have to imagine that there are birds hiding in those leaves around the tops of the stems, so the stems will make sense with my chirping tablescape.
Fat little bluebirds serve the salt and pepper.
For the centerpiece, in place of candles, a concrete candleholder holds nests and baskets with eggs.
A bird, flying below the chandelier, becomes part of the centerpiece.
What? You didn’t hear the birds chirping? I’m really not going crazy. I just have a very good imagination. (One more time – that’s my story, and I’m stickin’ to it!) Thanks so much for visiting me. laurie
