I'm excited to join Cuisine Kathleen's Spring Challenge...Birds, Nests, & Eggs. Here we go...
I set a table for eight in the dining room. I still can hardly bear to cover our new dining table.
If we've been hanging out together in blog world for any time at all, I'm pretty sure that the moment that you saw "Birds" as a part of Kathleen's challenge, you were at least half way expecting to see the Mottahedeh Musee Decoratif Tureen as part of my centerpiece. This is probably my favorite tureen.
Flanking the tureen, a pair of white porcelain nests with love birds were a gift from my dear friend Marsha. She brought them back from a trip to Nell Hill's in Kansas City...
I filled them with faux eggs and acid green berries. Thank you, Marsha!
A quartet of faux topiary balls were placed in white reticulated jardinieres, bought several years ago on the clearance aisle at Michael's.
The Val St. Lambert crystal candlesticks complete the centerpiece. I've had them for many years.
Centerpiece done...it only took minutes to achieve.
The Maryland China Company "Minuet" charger plate brought a touch of brightness and light to the place setting...
...and was the perfect frame for the Coalport Cathay dinner plate. I couldn't resist the vibrant green birds.
I liked the frosted palm fronds on our Nana's antique Lalique tumbler. It lent another gentle touch of white to the tablescape. Today it is paired with the AJKA Arabella Green goblet.
Birds ✔...Nests ✔...Eggs ✔ I'm ready for Cuisine Kathleen's Spring Challenge!
