Tablescape Tuesday: Snowballs in Spring!

“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable”
‭Isaiah‬ ‭40‬:‭28

Last weekend, our snowball bush was in full bloom and I knew I had to take advantage!  After a little brainstorming, I was able to use what I had on hand (many elements on this table have been seen on the blog before) and in my yard to pull this one together!  Repurposing items such as the ice cream/sundae glasses can show creativity and no cost is involved!  I do know that setting a table can be intimidating, but hopefully today’s tablescape will inspire confidence to use what you already have to set a simple but elegant table!   So today is a good time to give it a try! You never know, you might just have snowballs in spring on your dining room table before you know it!   Happy tablescaping!

Dinner for six!

As the saying goes-less is more-well, sometimes!

Three square vases with a snowball bloom in each makes for an elegant centerpiece!

Large placemats from TJ Maxx with white dinner plate from Home Goods!

Vintage salt and pepper set!

Pewter swan set of salt and pepper cellars!

Pewter napkin rings/place card holders, a gift from my niece, Hannah.  Vintage lace edged linen napkin!


Two pillar candles are positioned in ice cream/sundae glasses turned upside down to complete the centerpiece!

These stemware and flatware patterns are often used on my tablescapes!


The snowball bushes have been magnificent this spring!

“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver”
Proverbs‬ ‭25‬:‭11‬

We are honored to share everyday living with all of you!  Thank you for your love and encouragement!

    I love, love, love this table!! Your blooms are BEAUTIFUL and you’ve showcased them so well with the rest of your choices. Thank you for the idea of upside-down sherbet glasses for pillars!! Love your placemats…..oh, everything came together so well. It would be a treat to sit at this table. Bravo!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

    Beautiful, simple table, Pam. I love the place mats.
    The snowball viburnum is gorgeous. I bought one several years ago, but it turned out not be a macrocephalum. It was a viburnum prunifolium, not pretty flowers!

  3. Your table is lovely, but the snowballs are the show stoppers. 🙂 I sure do miss them. One flower can be a whole bouquet! I remember using smaller sized blooms as bride’s bouquets for my dolls when I was a girl. 🙂

    Absolutely stunning! I always love seeing your pretty and unique tablescapes. It’s always a pleasure to have you link up with Roses of Inspiration. Thank you!

  5. Gorgeous! My pop pom bush is still blooming and I look forward to having them on my table. Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop. Watch for your feature on Monday xo

    The snowball bush was always my youngest son’s favorite. Your blooms are gorgeous! Mine is in bud, but it’s only two years old so still small. I will surely pick a few of the blooms and bring in doors when they are ready. They certainly do help to make this tablescape elegant! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  7. Your table is both beautiful and elegant. Perfection. When you said Snowballs, that caught my eye right away. I wasn’t sure you meant it had been snowing as it has where I am. Seventy degrees one day the next a snow blizzard. I see you meant the beautiful Viburnum shrub. The most glorious floral Snowballs.

      Valerie, no snow here in Alabama…but my snowball bushes (Viburnum) are in full bloom, a little early this year! Wishing you a wonderful Easter!
