Pastel Bunnies and Speckled Eggs

It's a beautiful spring morning! Warm temps, vivid blue skies and not a cloud in sight! It makes our isolation easier to bear when we can at least enjoy being outdoors. What also makes it easier is the proliferation of spring designs on blogs everywhere!

And because it's spring, bunnies are hopping everywhere! They've hopped onto our kitchen island bringing speckled eggs and pastel flowers with them.

Spring Comes in Shades of Violet and Lavender

All the colors of purple are lovely -- lavender, lilac, violet, amethyst, iris, plum, orchid, grape, and eggplant. And perhaps a few more hues I haven't thought of! All of them are spring-like except perhaps for plum and eggplant. To welcome spring, I've set a table using lavender and violet, with white and a bit of blue for contrast.

The Greens of March: Decor in the Entry and Kitchen

Rather than setting a table this week, I decided to refresh the decor on the chest in the entry and in the stemware cabinet in the kitchen. I usually change the tableau in the foyer as the seasons change. Spring is beginning to stir, heralded by flowering bulbs.

Daffodils and Irish Spring Colors

As I was looking through my photos, I opened the folder of those I had taken in Ireland in the spring of 2018. That was one of our most enjoyable vacations!

I was once again mesmerized by the beauty of the countryside.

The Softer Side of Pink

When Daughter J was small, she hosted Valentine's Day Tea Parties for her friends. She and I selected the tablewares to use, the goodies to eat and the crafts to make. Miss J and her friends dressed up, brought their favorite dolls (who had a table to themselves!) and had such fun on otherwise deary February days.

I didn't create Valentine's Day tables again until I began blogging and found such delight in creating pretty tables and vignettes for a charming holiday. For this year's table I chose as a theme the softer side of pink paired with white and accented by gold.
