Spring and Cottage Table Decorating

 Hello everyone! With all the snow we have had (if you have seen my other recent posts...) I decided a little spring is called for on my table.  Just dreaming about spring....birds, nests, little lambs...which we have....and spring-cottagey colors...this is what my heart is yearning for!

 The table runner is full of spring and cottage prints with  a soft raggy rose to add a little beauty. It is here....

 One thing I love are the plastic plates you see before summer that are used for outside.  They come in a variety of colors. I have used some dark pink ones as small chargers under my regular white plates. I love the little extra color they add to the tablescape.
 And of course fabric napkins (which I find bundles all the time at thrift stores) in a variety of spring colors are a must!

So glad you came by for a visit! 
Playing along with these fun Blog Parties!

The runner is really wonderful, and I think that the little white bird is trying to snatch a petal from that rose. The pop of pink in the charger is the perfect choice. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Cherry Kay
