It all began with thoughts of green and white. I’m not Irish, but I had St. Patty’s Day in mind for this table. Shamrocks from Dollar Tree are all you need!
Since we enjoyed spring on many February days, I decided St. Patrick’s Day needs acknowledgement early, too.
This particular day was warm but dark and drizzly.
We have green and white tea towels for place mats. I’d collected all green and white dishes at the time.
When it came to napkins, I was drawn to this blooming cloth.
At that point, yellow salad plates were added to the stack.
Last week when I set this table, nothing was blooming in our yard. Yet.
Wal-Mart garden department had these beauties tucked over to the side – Polyanthus Primrose. I bought seven.
Why seven? I don’t know…the number of completion in the Bible…an odd number, often preferred in decorating…truth is, I couldn’t decide which colors, and I wanted every one!
Three are in this pot of gold – well, brass really. I know I can’t fool you! 😉
I’m glad I didn’t plant the blooms yet. Over the weekend, we had a couple of 22-degree nights. Yikes!
This week, there are a few blooms popping open in our yard. You’ll see them in tomorrow’s What’s Blooming Wednesday #53. You’ll also see the beginnings of my year of sacrifice. :-/
Are you still having freezing temps? Do you have spring blooms yet?
I’m sharing this table at Tablescape Thursday.
