I created a new arrangement in my white farmhouse tub. I wanted to do something fun with it and this morning it all came together. This plate became the star of the show!
I combined the pot of violas in the tub with some moss, the plate, a little clay pot and a candle.
Since spring has finally arrived here in northern Michigan purple is on my mind. The violas are the first thing I invested in this year for my gardening! The lilac topiary tree has buds all over it and I can hardly wait to see it in full bloom! Purple is one of the colors of spring so my mind is currently tied to it!
These colorful patterned dishes come out of a boxed set of 6 I bought several years ago (including the plate with the face). Each one has it's own design. There is a multi stripe plate that I didn't include.
These dishes are described as an eclectic assortment paying homage to 6 different design styles- Victorian, Ethnic paisley, French Baroque, 60's English, American Cottage and Contemporary Indie. All combined to make a collection that is refreshingly hip and artistic!
Once again the white Lacy dishes from Pier 1 worked nicely as a companion plate.
I'm happiest when I can take photos of my tablescapes when the sun is shining. It's greening up nicely outdoors although we are still getting frosts so I can't plant just yet.
Let's pretend we're outside under a gazebo enjoying lunch together!
I'm going to put this centerpiece over on the black table and convert my plate rack to a new spring look! These dishes might be up there soon!
I included these dishes in a post back in 2014 called "My Spring Bling" you can see it "here"
Notice my Christmas Cactus decided to bloom again. It bloomed on half the plant not long ago and now the other half is blooming! Doesn't fit in with the color scheme but I'm not complaining!
