Sharing The Birds Of Sping

 I wanted to join Kathleen for her Let's Dish challenge this month.  Since I'm at my Mom's and away from all my dishes, I decided to share a post with you from last year!
This plate was my inspiration for the table
It just says 'Spring' to me!  
I layered a large white charger plate and a vintage green plate underneath the salad plate. 
*edited to add that I think the green vintage plate is Edwin Knowles Yorktown.  Thanks to Monicawho helped me research* 
The bright green place mat was perfect and added two other colors; yellow and blue

The plaid napkin brought out the yellow and blue in addition to the green.  
I went with the blue handled flatware

I love this blue and green goblet and while I found mine at Goodwill, I've seen them at Ross.
Adding a little bird napkin ring continues the theme of this table.  The napkin rings were found on deep clearance at Hobby Lobby.
Pier 1 bird salt and pepper shakers on a pale yellow plate
At each place setting is a little yellow bird salt shaker.  Vintage and in bad condition, I love them anyway and they are perfect to add that extra touch!
My newest thrifty find is this cute bird napkin holder.  I paid 95 cents for it and added some bird paper napkins to the holder.
For a centerpiece I added my potted peace plant and a soft yellow bird and a LOVE sign
*When fresh flowers aren't available a green houseplant still adds some life to a centerpiece*

I hope you enjoyed my birdie tablescape!

Please visit Kathleen and see all the other tablescapes for the April challenge of 'Birds~Eggs~Nests'

I'm also joining Tablescape Thur

Wishing You JOY,

Thanks for linking up even when you have big things on your plate!
All the best!

Out of all of the people in blogland who do tablescapes, I think yours are always my favorites, because I always want to actually sit down at your table! Happy Spring Linda!
