Isn’t it interesting how so many spring flowers are yellow? From tiny Iris danfordiae through tulips and daffodils, to dancing Forsythia branches, yellow abounds.
So naturally I was drawn to the Vine Floral Boutis table runner and napkins in jojoba (a lovely soft yellow) from Williams Sonoma. They were a perfect backdrop to showcase a combination of parrot and regular tulips.
The patterned plate is from Gien’s Paris a Giverny dessert set. There are four different scenes on each of the dessert plates and the canapé plates.
I do love Gien’s faience wares. They’re not dirt cheap, slight gasp, but the colours are spectacular and they never fail to delight.
I paired them with Spode Jewel dinner plates.
The glasses are a combination of vintage and modern: the iced tea Colonial Dame Green by Fostoria and Fitz & Floyd Trestle glasses in clear.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend with family and friends.
I’m sharing this post with Between Naps on the Porch.
What a lovely combination! Beautiful tulips and intricate garden plates are perfectly paired.
Thanks, Sandra! I’ve had the Gien plates for years and years. They never fail to make me smile 🙂
The Impressionist masters would have been charmed by your Spring tablescape. Tres French! I’ve not seen the Trestle goblets. They are lovely, and I like the shape and short stem. Thanks for inviting us for a peek. Cherry Kay
Hi Cherry Kay,
I’m really taken with the Trestle goblets. Very nicely done, and a lovely big size for water. Very reasonable, too! Thanks for visiting.
The first thing that caught my eye was the yellow, the linens and then the flowers. Yellow is a favorite color and that buttery soft one is just beautiful. The rest of the table is lovely too. I have always liked those types of garden scenes. Very nice.
I love yellow, too, Lorri. It’s such a cheerful colour. Like you, my favourite is the buttery shade, rather than a lemon undertone. Tulips and Monet – who could ask for more?
