Spring is in the Aire Tablescape!

Spring is in the air, everywhere I look around....la, la, la....(insert rest of lyrics here if you know them cuz, well, I don't!)



When I thought about my spring table, I just looked for everything I had that was pastels or flowers. Nothing was purchased just for this tablescape except the centerpiece, which came as a surprise to both me and my husband. He ordered me a Christmas centerpiece from QVC and forgot that he did auto delivery. Surprise...spring centerpiece....


The sweet cups my friend Candy gave me as a Christmas gift. There are 6 of them, each a different color. I love the triangular saucer.


Isn't the centerpiece yummy!


Square placemats are from my good ole grocery store a couple of years ago. Each is a different color. Square plates are from 99 cent and Everything store, I don't know when!! The little round plates from Target Dollar Stop about 2 years ago. The napkins were a Big Lot find and the flatware good ole Target! Now, Rose from A Hint of Home wants those napkin rings....I have had them for years and have gotten their money's worth! The little flower candles, again all different colors and types of flowers...the ever famous Dollar Tree.


Cracker Barrel eggs...oops, I was wrong...these are new! I have pink and green ones also.


Cute little duck creamer....ducks like spring too!





Hey, looky, I almost got the whole table this time! I am getting better, hey??

You will see some of these items again, when I do my Easter table. I just change out a few things. But not yet!

Now I am off to visit other Tablescapes at Susan's. Join me!!

**Update on me.....I will be starting Tomotherapy treatments every week day for the next 6 weeks. I chose to try this first before major surgery. I would appreciate any prayers that it will be effective. I don't know how I will feel during this time, but I hope well enough to post some and visit all of you. Thank you for all your concern***

AND...I just had to post this lovely thing. Now, don't laugh...but I just felt like proving that I do cook and bake! and eat off of the plates I show!!!! This apple pie was made from 6 different types of apples and let me tell you...it is yummy, if I have to say so myself! TA DA......ok Kathy, I am ready for my award!!!

Hi,

Your table says Spring for sure....the cups and saucers are so unusual, I see they've made a big hit with the others too.

Of course you'll be in our prayers.

Hugs

I guess everyone has spring fever even though it's not officially here until another week. I love your mix of spring colors.

Stacey said...

It's all so sweet and springy. I can't believe the bargains you got on your dishes.

Zoey said...

I like how you used a different colored placemat at each place setting. Very pretty pastel table.

Wishing you all the best with the treatments!!

Your table is beauiful! I love those cups. Gorgeous!

salmagundi said...

Thanks for explaining the tomotherapy to me. I'm interested in the new stuff as my daughter had the worst kind of brain cancer 3 years ago, and she had an experimental oral chemo. After being given 12 months to live, she is still going strong! I'll be thinking and praying for you. There are miracles out there - one just waiting for you. Take care, Sally

Your table is the epitome of Spring and I love the pastel dishes and how the saucers are angular while the cups are ornate...really pretty.

I just love your springy tablescape. I really like how everything is a different color. Those tea cups are awesome. I love the triangle plates. And the duck creamer is too cute for words. And the pie!!! All I can say is "Yum,yum!" I've never baked an apple pie, I always buy the frozen ones or buy one from Marie Callendars.

Elizabeth (blue clear sky) said...

I really like the different coloured placemats, teacups etc. Very fresh and definitely Spring!

Thanks for stopping by my little tea party! I love your centerpiece-is it wisteria? I have a fondness for all things yellow-the cups & saucers are a treat! They are really unique. The egg salt & peppers add the perfect touch!

Love this tablescape, Ceekay. It looks so pretty and springy. The colors are beautiful. The cups from your friend are really gorgeous. I love the interesting shapes. Also, how fun to receive an unexpected centerpiece.

I will be thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers as you begin your new treatment.

The pie looks delicious and 6 kinds of apples ~ I'm impressed!!

Susan B said...

Beautiful tablescape. I love the cups, they are so pretty and unique. Everything is lovely, and the centerpiece is beautiful! Your pie looks yummy also.

LDH said...

I think this is the prettiest springtime table I have ever seen! The colors and the accents go together perfectly. Now that beautiful pie could easily have been the centerpiece... but it looks so good it probably wouldn't last long enough.

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving your comment!

Kindly, ldh

Bo said...

Oh Ceekay...I'm so happy I made it by here...my cotton-picking server has been fritzed out for hours...
but never mind that...I love your tablescape...I want your cups & saucers! OK, since a treasured friend gave them to you, you can keep them...but, let me add my prayers to all of the others & say, God is good, God is great...and He knows we in Blogland need you to share your wonderful life with us! Big hugs to you little lady, ;-) Bo

Pinky said...

I just love, love, LOVE your teacups!!! The shape and colors are BEAUTIFUL!!! I am so glad I jumped over here to see your wonderful SPRING table. It is beautiful! I posted my FIRST TT table so please jump over to see it....please??? Thanks! Pinky

Pinky said...

Whoops! I am so sorry, meant to mention that I will DEFINITELY be praying for you and that the treatment WORKS!!!!

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Beautiful tablescape. It does look like Spring! Love those napkin rings. You will be in my prayers. laurie

dana said...

I am so impressed with that pie, CeeKay! If my husband had known you baked that he would have been right over at your house begging for a slice!

I am TOTALLY impressed with the lovely spring tablescape of yours!! If I had as many special items as you, I'd be storing them under my beds, cuz I would have LONG run out of cabinet space! :)

I LOVED how you combined the pastel theme and alternated those colors in dishes and placemats. I saw those little egg S/P shakers at our local CB and passed on them--of course, I am kicking myself now!! I hope they have at least one little set left, as I will return and look!! What a special touch that your hubby had ordered that centerpiece (is that one of those battery candles in it? I am crazy about those and have ordered some from QVC before). You certainly put me in the mood for spring with your table decor.

I will continue to remember you in my prayers, CeeKay, as you start this new treatment. L, Dana

Lady Katherine said...

I love the napkins, duck creamer is darling! Love those cups! I adore the candle centerpiece! So spring! I have not done a tablescape or tea! I had grandchildren for months now! 10 hrs a day. Worn out! I bought a lot of new dishes and now need a place to store them. I have been looking for the perfect antique buffet table. Well I am going to keep looking in, in the mean time, I going to use a rod iron table with wood drawer top and make a large shelf above! That is if Hubby will weld a piece he stole off my table. lol Best Wishes for you during your treatment. I know its going to be tough! But you are strong and can do it! I go see my doc on the 24th. I have done nothing but keep kids, so I have not done the things he wanted, I dreading going for I will be in trouble. Just keep thinking of creating these lovely tables, while you are in treatment! Sending Prayers and Big Hugs your way everyday!

Shelia said...

Be a sweetie,

Hello from another member of the club. (Ovarian Cancer) I too am still in treatments for recurring cancer. I had completed my initial rounds, and scans and test all showed no new tumors or visible signs of cancer, but my ca-125 never went into the single digits, and began to elevate shortly after I went into remission, thus, more treatments. I will be thinking about you tomorrow as you start another round of treatments. Keep in touch and let me know how you're doing. _Ashey*

Maryrose said...

Lovely table, you totally captured spring. Those cups are terrific. Happy Spring,
