Good evening, Ladies! Welcome to the Let’s Dish Challenge for April, Birds, Bees, Flowers or Trees. Your entry tonight should be on that theme. Not hard, LOL!
I started with a moss covered basket filled with FLOWERS from my Pear TREE .
My tip for tonight, use pachysandra to fill in arrangement. I have done many arrangements where I filled the oasis with them, and then used very few flowers with a pretty result.
I used the tablecloth I got last year at the WSonoma Outlet. It was on sale right before Easter. Next came the PB bird nest chargers from the outlet, 2.00. You can see the setting I used it for last year with the matching napkins here.
The white swirled coupe plate is from a sale at Pier One a few years ago. The green cabbage leaf salad is from WS outlet, same sale as the tablecloth.
The picket fence napkin rings are from my friend, Gail. She is a dear friend who feeds my tablescape addiction with lovely gifts!
Recently she sent me a set of black and white check flatware.
I hope to concoct a scape with them soon. Thank you, Gail!
If there are any flatware designers or buyers out there, my Dishers love patterns, so bring on the checks, dots and stripes!
We will buy them! :)
Speaking of flatware, the ones used in tonight’s scape are new. Sale at Horchow, free shipping, and don’t forget to link to mrrebates.com first for a % back! Nope, I get nothing for saying that!
The BIRDS are from Pier One, and the little topiary name card holders…
are from TARGET.com. Cheaper than that novelty company that is seen all over blogland these days.
A sneeze will blow them over, so I suggest gluing a quarter to the bottom, esp if you have someone with a cold as a guest, or are using them outside! :)
When in doubt, bring out the Waterford, so I did. It goes with every thing.
I used the bottoms of my little butter domes to hold a pale green votive.
The small green pedestal is Bardallo , a gift from my friend Pam.
The only thing I didn’t get in was a BEE. There might be one in the flowers though!
Foodie Friday’s theme tonight is Spring Salad. ML West hosts this party over at Rattlebridge Farm, formerly Designs by Gollum. I have been partying with her since she started. She takes such wonderful pictures and is such a gracious hostess!
Spring Salads it is!
Bowtie noodles, chicken, onions snow peas, oj, mayo or yogurt , powdered mustard, and salt and pepper. Chill a few hours so the flavors can blend, and serve.
You can serve it with a fresh asparagus quiche .
Last night we had a dinner salad. Sliced chicken, strawberries, grapes, feta, walnuts , bacon, cranberries and of course, greens.
Same rules to link up…
