I know some of you still have snow on the ground , and others are already wearing your flip flops!
This week we had some beautiful Spring days, and things are greening up. I have been outside working everyday. This is such a busy time of year getting everything cleaned and painted for the season. Then there is the gardening, it is a full time job!
I wasn’t sure if I would even get a table done!
My table tonight is inspired by the only tree blooming right now, a pear . This one has a slight aroma, much better than the other pears that bloomed a few weeks ago.
My friend Gail was getting rid of these dishes she had used in her hutch for display. She changed her colors and couldn’t use them anymore. Lucky me!
She also gave me the matching pitcher, which I used for a centerpiece filled with the pear blooms I went out in the rain to cut!
I used a round green placemat with a earth colored string placemat on top. The string mats were 1.00 at CTS.
The flatware is from World Market. My friend, Susan at Savoring Time in the Kitchen, started me with 4 settings, and then I completed them.
I couldn’t find the right color green napkin to go with the dishes, so I picked up the pink in the flower with a nice soft pink napkin from BBB on clearance. I think they were .60.
The napkin ring is a green string from CTS, .25.
The soup bowl is from CTS also, I think they were 1.00
The glassware is by Gorham via Lenox Outlet. Birdies from Pier One.
A simple table , but one that reflects the springification we are finally getting here on Long Island! Oh yeah, spell check is having a hissy fit on that one!
Thanks Gail! Everyone wants a friend like Gail, I know!
Still looking for the perfect potato au gratin recipe!
This was good, but not the best I ever had. Recipe
Do you have one that is excellent?
That’s it for me.
