Spring Tulip Tablescape


Welcome to Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ She is the tablescape queen! Her easter themed tablescape for this week is beautiful! Go visit her to check it out and for a list of all the participants. I assure you that you will get tons of ideas for your own tablescape!
This is my spring inspired tablescape. I found the tulip arrangement premade at Michaels, but took it apart and added the hydrangeas. I then put it all together in the ceramic apple pitcher. I bought the green plates at Pier 1, napkins at Dillard's last year, and the rabbits the other day half price at Hobby Lobby. As you can see this is a very small table and we eat here everyday.

The rabbit on the left looks like he's trying to smell the tulips!




As I was working on my tablescape I looked out the window and saw this sunset. I don't think I've ever seen one this beautiful in my own backyard! (yes that fence needs to be stained, hubby's fixing to work on that...lol)


Thank you for visiting me! Hope you enjoyed my little spring tablescape!

Melissa Miller said...

Kristen this is gorgeous!

I love your yellow tulip centerpiece and the bunnies are precious.
That's a very pretty pitcher you used.
Neat idea.
It's just perfect for a Springtime dinner.

Your sure were blessed with an amazing sunset to capture in a photo.
Lovely and amazing colors.

My hubby is taking a week off next week and we are re-staining our back deck and fence. I just had the house and deck pressure washed today. I'm planning to hang huge ferns from our back porch roof for the first time as well.
Inspired by yours. Thanks!

Loved your TT!
~Melissa :)

~CC Catherine said...

I'm totally loving that tulip centerpiece Kristen! The table is so pretty and springy with them demanding the attention! I also think the combination of all the textures on your tablescape look fabulous. The little bunnies are soooo cute! The printed napkins and colors are so cute too! Love it all~ ~CC Catherine ;)

Happy To Be said...

Just beautiful Kristen the table and the sunset ...how special are both..hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

B said...

Everything looks so lovely and springy fresh. And, what a gorgeous sunset. What a great shot that was!

Tim said...

Ok thats it. I just need you to do our entire house. I say house because it truly wont be a home until it is decorated by someone like you. Carey and I both have no clue when it comes to that stuff. However we love everybit of it.

That sunset was Im sure thanks to that huge front that came thru tonight. We has major storms from it and from radar it looked like it might have made it up your way but i dont know.

Love and Prayers,

Tim

Hello Kristen!
I adore your tablescape. Of course I love tulips - one of my all time favorite flowers. Those little bunnies you have tucked beneath your tulips are so cute. What really caught my eye is the new picture you are using in your header. I love the way you have arranged the bunnies inside the berries and vine. Very original. Have a "hoppy" day! See ya soon,
Alisa

Bo said...

Hi Kristen...when I saw your centerpiece I thought the tulips were real...you did a great job re-creating that arrangement. Your little bunnies are so cute & the one on the left is smelling the flowers! LOL ;-) Bo

Jo said...

Love the tulips and the bunnies hiding underneath are adorable. Such a welcoming look.

Jo

"Blossom" said...

Soft suttle colors for spring. I feel comfortable here. The little rabbits are so cute and I do like the one that is tipping his head upward; so darn cute. The napkins have such a pretty color.

Wendy said...

Your table is charming!...and so springtime! I adore how you remade the tulip centerpiece...you are so very creative. The little bunnies under it are precious.
I'm so glad you enjoyed your time in Branson, and especially dinner on the landing...it's such a fun place to go.
Smiles,
Wendy

Linda said...

So pretty. I wish I was creative. I would have never thought to put more in an arrangement I bought. The bunnies are a sweet added touch.
Blessings,
Linda

Lynda said...

Kristen, your creativity and your eye for color never cease to impress me! Your table is beautiful...so inviting, so tranquil.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog to share your places to buy great florals. Yours always look like they are real...I love that! I half expect your bunnies to hop away! :>)

Warmly,
Lynda

Chari said...

Mornin' my friend,

So happy that you stopped by to take a little peek at my "Brume de Rose" tablescape and thank you for leaving such sweet comments! It's always such a pleasure to have you visit!!!

Well my friend, what a beautiful Spring tablescape that you've made! I just adore it! I have had such a "thing" for little bunnies here lately! You're absolutely right, that one little fella looks like he's sniffing the pretty flowers...just adorable!!! I love your pretty centerpiece, although I must say that I about fell off of the chair when you said that you bought a pre-made floral arrangement...hehe!!! I felt much better after I read that you added your personal touch to it though! Hehe!!! Love the hydrangeas and tulips together and such pretty colors!!! I love your green plates, I have a set very similar...love that shade of green! And I love your woven mats...I need to get me some of those...love the look of them!

Well Sweetie, thanks again for coming by...I sure did enjoy your beautifully set table!!!
Love ya,
Chari
PS...sure looks like ya'll had fun in Branson! I've never been there but would love to go!

First of all, thanks for sharing the sunset. Mother Nature is the best decorator of all!

Your table is charming. I love how the bunnies are sort of tucked under the flowers .. almost hidden, rather like the shy creatures they are in nature. Lovely!
