I created a centerpiece arrangement using the sunflowers that were sent to us from our son and daughter in-law for our anniversary. Aren't these beautiful! They've really opened up nicely over the past few days.
I like the cobalt blue vase with the sunflowers since they're so tall it works perfectly for them. I added one of my little cachepots I picked up in Pennsylvania at a garden center a while back. The little creamer is a Polish Pottery piece and seemed to work well with the blue and yellow theme.
I love the raised flowers and vines. I remember they also came in a blue flower too and I had a hard time deciding which color to choose!
I saved a couple of birds nests last year and I used one to stage the blue birds in.
I'm continuing on my bird theme that I started and posted about "here"
The sweet little blue birds came to me as a surprise gift from Michele from The Nest at Finch Rest
I used the tea already so I couldn't add it to the tablescape. Wasn't that sweet of her to send me! I love the pretty hand made note card she made with a sweet message! Makes a person feel extra special to receive things like this!
Aren't they precious! The mister brought his missy some pretty flowers and laced them into the nest to flower her with romance!
Thank you again Michele for your generosity! I hope you like how I used them!
I added the rose tone napkins to tie into the cachepot and I used the yellow and white paisley tablecloth to compliment the yellow plates and sunflowers.
We had some early morning sun before clouds came in and soon it will be raining. We need it so that's okay.
I folded the napkin in half, then I made it into a narrow strip with a couple of more folds and placed it under the salad plate. Then I turned the ends in towards the plate. With this small (42") table it can be hard to fit everything on there without it being too crowded.
I was glad I had these yellow plates that create the feeling of a square corner and go well with the blue and white bird dishes.
Thank you for joining as we are dining along with our nesting friends on a beautiful spring day!
