Sunday morning I put together a quick tablescape for an "Impromptu Morning Dessert" and you are welcome to take a look at it "here". I mixed some new tid-bit plates from Pottery Barn with my Polish Pottery that worked out nicely.
I was in the basement I saw my decorative wooden terrarium that I got at least 6 years ago at Kohl's. It's not a real terrarium since there's no glass in it- it was just an accent piece shown with flameless candles or plants.
I invested in several small artificial plants to go in it and I added my faux moss to the bottom that I used at Easter.
I was going to get rid of it but decided to give it another chance so it ended up here on the small table.
I found these bisque ceramic candle holders at one of my little favorite shops in Petoskey. I decided they color and texture worked well with the terrarium.
I felt like a punch of green was needed so the Pier 1 cabbage plates went up on the plate rack. This has become a fun decorating spot for me!
I couldn't make my mind up for the bottom shelf of the plate rack but finally decided to put an assortment of creamy white pitchers for it.
A couple of months ago I found this blue/white cookie jar at T.J. Maxx and decided I had to have it. I goes with the other pieces from that same Ralph Lauren Mandarin line that I have.
I have one candle holder from the same group and I can't remember if I showed this porcelain sphere I ordered from Pottery Barn a few months back. The cobalt stemware was a clearance purchase at Pier 1 some time ago.
Pretty much the same here- with the exception of the Dutch Wooden Shoe ornament I found at Bronner's Christmas store on our way back home after my birthday in March.
Here in Michigan we have a neat little city called Holland that is dedicated to celebrating Tulips! They have a festival and 25,000 tulips are planted throughout the area including Windmill Island where you can actually go inside an authentic 250 year old dutch windmill. Anyway I had to have the ornament for nostalgic reasons!
I think I mentioned this a while back too- I found the crate at T.J. Maxx. I was looking for something different to add to the bottom of the etagere. I started adding a few things I had around the house. I had thoughts of putting wine bottles in it but they really should be stored on their side.
This area is frequently used. Notice my Christmas Cactus is blooming again! This is the 4th time since December. I guess it likes where it is!
I turned it around to view the flowers better. I love flowers- what can I say!
I joined Ron at The Uptown Acorn yesterday for his (link) "What Makes Me Happy" series.
I'd love it if you haven't visited yet and could leave a comment!
Looking forward to a great weekend and I hope yours will be too!
