Tablescape Tuesday – Anticipating Spring Tea   17 comments



It was pretty chilly in Washington this weekend.  We had snow on Saturday evening into Sunday and it was quite pretty but it also made me start anticipating Spring!  So, I decided to decorate a Spring Tea Table.  The pink plates are my latest find at the Goodwill as well as one of the tea pots.  Most of the items on this table are from Goodwill.

I did find a new little shop this weekend called the Rose Tree Cottage.  I found some great silks there and the nest and most of the flowers on the napkins are from this shop.  The chair covers are of course pillow cases!  Oh so much cheaper than the real chair covers!  My centerpiece is also a Goodwill find.  I thought it was a unique arrangement and is a fun addition to my Anticipation of Spring Garden Tea!

Do come again soon!  I know Susan is expecting a visit so head on over to her blog to see more tablescapes!
