Tablescapes, Birdcages & Bluebirds

Spring seems to finally have arrived in most parts of the country

The birds are so happy and singing so loud sometimes I think they are inside my house!

I actually do have a few inside birds that agreed to help with this table

These beauties grace a square dish given to me by my mother years ago

This little bird is afraid to fly away so he stays perched on the wreath outside his cage

I don’t trust the big one though, so he has to stay in his pretty little white bird cage

The table is set with a green & white lattice print topper and navy cotton placemats trimmed in turquoise and lime

The napkins match the place mats

The bottom plate is acting as a charger and once the plates are stacked you won’t see the yellow, just the blue rim and green leaves

The turquoise dinner plate just lets the cobalt rim and leaf tips peak out

Next is the square green & white contemporary floral salad plate

and the salad plate is topped with a “blossom” bowl.  I don’t have 2 turquoise, so I used a white bowl for the other place.

In this photo you might be able to see the detail trim on the mats and napkins, it is a turquoise braid with shiny gold dots.

Bluebird goblets are for a crisp white wine, and turquoise beverage glasses for water stand by.  {don’t worry my mother taught me better than this, I just put the glasses on the outside of this place setting for better photos!}

We are all set to enjoy a lovely meal surrounded by birdcages and bluebirds!  Thanks for joining us!

    Jenna~ I love wreath on your birdcage and your springtime table with your feathered friends! Fun layers of plates with your cheery greens and blues too! You have such a wonderful space and light for tablescaping, I’m envious! Our porch is being dismantled this week and wood replaced so I was hoping for a day to set a table outside but between the pollen, wind & rain it didn’t happen. Happy Spring!

    • Thank you Mary, I just realized the plates that I thought were lemons were actually pears and onions! I had to do some fast editing 🙂 ! I hope you get your porch back soon, I know I can’t think when my house is disrupted!

    Hi Jenna, wow, I love the birdcages as your centerpiece. All your pretty dishes look gorgeous on the navy placemats. The topper just adds the right spark of color. The bird dish that your mom gifted you is perfect for your theme.

    While the entire setting is gorgeous, I am smitten with the painted bunting bird. I’ve only seen painting buntings three times in real life, and each time, I was stopped in my tracks, captivated by the colorful little bird.

    I also was sidetracked by your short-ribs recipe! It looks absolutely delicious!

    Thanks for stopping by my site earlier. I’ve just started following you with bloglovin’.

    I love every inch of this. The colors are wonderful, and it’s all so springy.
    I giggled about moving the glasses about for a better picture. That is the kind of the thing I would do…. and it is the kind of thing I’d make sure to mention that I had done, just like you
