Happy Spring~A Sunny Yellow Table
The first meeting of the Sisterhood of Dish Lovers is called to order! :)
We will meet Wednesday's at 7 and share our settings, or dish accoutrements, tips or other table terrific topics!
Join us every week with something to share, or just some dish chat, you are always welcome!
Once a month there will be a throw down or challenge.
Got an idea for one? Please feel free to make suggestions!
In order to post an entry, you have to be sure you do not have that bloody word id thing!
I know we all want people want to leave a comment, but they don't want to take an IQ test trying to figure out those 2 words! :) It is really hard!
If you ask a question, please make sure there is a way to contact you. Some of you have no reply blogger addy's, and some don't know they have that! :)
I hope the weather where you are was as wonderful as it was here today, Spring has definitely arrived!
On a recent trip to Christmas Tree Shop, I found these polka dot dishes in the clearance. There were a lot of them. I say WERE cause I took all but the orange. I have a baby shower coming up and I thought they might work for that.
They were .75 for the dinner, and 50 for the salad, and I had a coupon for 20 off.
A bouquet of flowers that was a hostess gift became the centerpiece in a little yellow watering can. I put a daisy mat from CTS under it and the birds and yellow salt and peppers.
Yellow ruffled charger from CTS, the polka dot plates, white plate, and eared soup bowl from Target a few years ago. Dansk watering can napkin rings to carry out the centerpiece theme, and yellow print napkins from PB.
Flatware by Fiesta, via Tuesday Morning, so a good price.
Little white butter dishes from CTS, white ruffled serving bowls from HG, glassware by Dansk when they had an outlet here in Southampton, and glass daisy scatters from Villeroy and Boch were .99 in the clearance basement.
Sadly, both Dansk and Villeroy and Boch are gone, though I tried my best to keep them in business, but there's just so much one can do! :)
It would be fun to serve this as dessert! Your friends will know you are spending a little too much time matching your food to your table!
The pan is a flower shaped cup cake pan from WSonoma Outlet.
You don't need a special pan for this one, just do the flower with whipped cream in a piping bag!
I thought you might to try this for your Spring table!
Get a flower pot, and a large clay saucer.
I got this at Michael's with a coupon.
Great for a Spring Brunch, and so easy!
