Spring Birdhouse Tablescape




Welcome to Tablecsape Thursday hosted by Susan at Between Naps On the Porch. Please pay her a visit to view lots of beautiful tablescapes! I love to participate when I can, but I only have so many dishes! lol...





I found this cute birdhouse yesterday and it sparked an idea. I remembered I had the black plates and tulip napkins so I put this together in my head in the middle of Hobby Lobby! lol...Sometimes things just work out that way huh? Now who can I have come over for dinner? Hmmm




I had all of the flowers, greenery and container. I have a little stash that I just keep reusing in different arrangements for my house.



Even though I used some black, it is still a bright and cheerful tablescape!







The napkin rings, green plates and wicker place mats are from Pier1. The black plates and plastic glasses are from Wal-Mart. They look good for being plastic! I believe the napkins are from Dillard's a few years ago.





I have used those napkins over and over! I just love them...







The kitchen is looking springy! Now if the sun would just come out...I think the rain is finally going to come to an end tonight. Yay!




Thank you for your visit!! Happy spring to you all!





Please check my Etsy store for new items. You might even find a birdhouse arrangement for yourself or for a gift for mom!

Your amazing birdhouse centerpiece will have the birdies trying to figure out a way through the windows and onto your table. Everything looks beautiful! Thank you for sharing your lovely design. Cherry Kay

Looks really nice! I've thought of you with all the storms...it's been horrible here. So many tornadoes, hail, etc. and no sleep.

Beautiful tablescape, Kristen !! I love how you nestled your cute birdhouse in the middle of your arrangement !! And, okay ... my apologies if I missed this before, but is that a new rug under your table ?! xo, Becca

Kathy said...

Love your birdhouse arrangement. Your blog is fairly new to me and I've enjoy your decorating style.

I would love if you would do a tut on how you did the birdhouse arrangement. So neat!

Zoey said...

Nicely done!

I really love those chargers and the birdhouse centerpiece is what caused me to click on your post as the first one from TT.

Melissa Miller said...

Kristen this all looks gorgeous! The birdhouse is adorable and goes well with your spring decor'. My favorite thing is your lovely woven chargers. So pretty!

I've been out of it all day. My sister Michele and her family live in Birmingham. (The one you made the *G* frame for her baby last year.) Whew. They have no power and won't for many days but they are okay. Thank you God.

Warmly, ~Melissa
