I've set my kitchen table in anticipation of the first day of Spring and a lovely Spring luncheon/tea that I'm planning for the four of us. I find such joy in getting things ready ahead of time because it allows me to look at it for a while, fuss with it, change it, you know how it goes...
The vase is one of my favorites, such a lovely shade of green, perfect for Saint Patrick's Day.
The cup and saucer is marked Stadfordshire England, Mayfair. I love the delicate floral pattern. The pink glasses are from Anthropologie. The pink candle holders are a find from one of my antiquing weekends. The table cloth is an April Cornell print that I hesitated for a moment to purchase, I'm so accustomed to choosing solid colours or textures. I'm glad I purchased it, this might be a new trend for me.
The simplicity of white china; a Home Goods purchase.
My dear friend Patricia, who by the way has an awesome china collection and welcomes every opportunity to use it. Pat stopped by to add these sweet napkin rings to my setting. She has such a knack for adding those special touches.
I could not resist adding this little milk glass hen dish to the table. I have no idea what I'll place in the dish but it looks right at home there doesn't it?
I have a few more days to plan my menu and purchase more tulips but until then, I'll light the candles...
and enjoy the view.
