“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
Years before I entered the blogging world, I was tablescaping my dining table for get-togethers in our home! Family and friends have always been so sweet with their comments about the table setting when sitting down for a meal. My late and dear friend, Bonnie Jean, was one of my best encouragers. She would often come for dinner and notice every detail and ask questions. I always enjoyed sharing with her the stories and memories of the pieces that would make an appearance on the table. When I joined Facebook, I would occasionally post tablescapes and people were so generous with their comments and likes! One of those is a sweet friend, Margaret who always commented-she even encouraged me to share my tablescapes in a book! Last August when we began blogging, I knew that I would share table settings, but I never thought it would turn into a weekly series called “Tablescape Tuesday” and that it would become such a creative outlet for me!
Since dogwoods are in full bloom now, I wanted to share a table with you that spotlights their branches! Dogwoods in the South are one of our most beautiful trees in spring! I enjoyed reminiscing as I pulled this together for you! So today, let’s go back at least three years for this energetic spring tablescape!
Dogwood is the star of this spring setting! The centerpiece is a moss-covered crystal cake stand with a bird’s
nest covered by an etched glass cloche. Along with the dogwood
blooms is a pair of crystal candle holders! The height of the vases keep the branches above site level when guests
are seated, so no view is blocked! Being able to see one another is
important, because next to the food, conversation
is the best part of get-togethers!
Placemats were found at TJ Maxx and the turquoise stemware was
a true find at Tuesday Morning. The Tracy Porter “Artesian Road”
pattern has made several appearances on the blog, as well as
the wicker chargers and tortoise flatware! Very simple setting but the dogwoods give it the “wow” factor! I absolutely love cutting something from our yard to use indoors!
This just says “welcome, spring!” On this particular Sunday, we had 14 guests! An interesting camera shot that is not usually seen on the blog! The dogwood branches were cut from this tree in our side yard! The dogwood bloom is a masterpiece of the Creator’s hand!
