Tablescape Tuesday: “March”-ing Into Spring!

“Every word of God proves true; he is a shield to those who take refuge in him”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭30:5‬ ‭

Happy first day of March!  After several sunny and warm days, it only felt appropriate to bring a touch of spring to Tablescape Tuesday!  Yes, I know that we have a few weeks before the seasons officially change…but with March on the calendar and springtime in the air, I just couldn’t bring myself to set one more winterscape!

  “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome”
Anne Bradstreet
I am trying hard not to rush spring, but I am definitely ready for the colors of springtime!

I love the charcuterie board that Butch bought at Blackberry Farm last year…it provides a rustic foundation for vases of flowers!


I often use the paisley-patterned Tracy Porter salad plates. They always add a touch of whimsy!

Mini carnations fill the small Tracy Porter vases!

The ironstone pitcher holds a bouquet of mini carnations!

This stemware purchased many years ago was a great find…love the color!

Shh…don’t tell, but the swan placemats are paper!


The gray tablecloth offers a neutral background for all the pops of color!

The dragonfly napkin rings are a favorite gift from our son!


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

The iron butterfly complements the napkin rings!

The pair of scalloped candle sticks add more whimsy to the setting!

Do you like a table setting with color, or do you prefer a neutral palette?  I love both!

    Funny…this is the same name as my post I was to publish today. The reason I’m not? Bluehost has blocked my home wifi from accessing my site. I’ve been on the phone for four days trying to figure out the problem. I just discovered last night that it’s Bluehost, the very people I contacted first thing Friday morning when this all started (and who assure me it wasn’t them)! I’ve always been very happy with Bluehost, but that opinion is changing drastically…unless they come through today and get me back going again. Anywho…now that I’ve seen your beautiful tablescape, I’ll change my post title before publishing, whenever that happens. 😉 Your lunch plates are so pretty and fresh for spring. I love the plank center collection tray. That rough texture is such a nice contrast to the delicate china. Happy Tuesday, Pam!

      Oh, my Kim that is a terrible irritation! When I moved from to, I encountered all kinds of difficulties and still am, but I knew that up front! Katy is a life-saver with all this tech stuff! Hope they get you running today! Thanks for your sweet comments, you are such a dear blogging friend! Happy first day of March!

  2. Pam, Your dining room and tablescape are beautiful and so fresh and colorful! All your details on your table are so fun and I also noticed your beautiful draperies and art on the wall and love them! White and neutrals are so popular right now and I’m loving your jewel tones!
    Have a wonderful day!
    love and blessings~

    • Everyday Living says:

      Lynda, thank you for your gracious comments! I love the whites and neutrals, but my motto is only one life, let me live it in color! It is certainly hard to not be swayed, but I know that color is already coming back…everything cycles! Blessings and hugs, Pam

    Is color a southern thing because I couldn’t live without it. I currently live in Colorado. EVERYTHING here is brown. It’s depressing. Here you will not see a tree or green grass unless you plant it and water it. A lot! Except for a few cottonwoods that grow where there is a little water, there is no shade from the hot sun. We are much nearer to the sun, 5363 feet at my house, and you most be careful out in the sun as you will get a severe burn in 30 minutes. Anyway, when people visit my home they always comment that it’s so pretty and different from what they see in homes here.
    For me, there can be NO brown or beige in my surroundings and I also wonder when I see lots of beige and brown if the home owner has an issue with knowing how to put color into their homes.
    I love the pictures you share of your home and it makes me know a little about who you are, outgoing, fun and loving.

    • Everyday Living says:

      Alice, you will never know how much you encourage me! I have always loved color and it makes me happy! Trends will always come and go, I say use what you love and don’t be persuaded by the latest fad. I know your home is beautiful! Again, thanks for your kind comments that you send my way and I so appreciate you following! Hugs, Pam

  4. I can spot a gorgeous Tracy Porter creation from a mile away…love her dinnerware….the table as always is so beautiful with the brilliant and yet soft colors of Spring to come….and love those placemats…would have never known they were paper!

    • Everyday Living says:

      Shirley, thanks so much for your always encouraging comments. You truly are the sweetest, I certainly hope we can meet up one day! Yes, Tracy Porter designed really fun stuff’

  5. What a wonderful bright burst of spring Pam! I have serious table envy over your charcuterie board and the Tracy Porter pieces! Love all the bright colors and whimsical mix, hurry Spring!

    • Everyday Living says:

      Jenna, spring can’t get here soon enough! We had sleet and snow mixed this morning, the weather has been crazy! Thank you for your sweet comments always!

  6. Stacey says:

    Pam, this is beautiful in every sense. The dishes, the beautiful drinking glasses, the iron dragonflies, and the board down the middle of the table…it’s all amazing together. Your tables are like paintings.

    Thank you for sharing this beauty with Thoughts of Home on Thursday.

  7. Laura says:

    PAM- this is so beautiful- I don’t know where to start.
    I love your Tracy Porter plate-a nd the turquoise glasses.

    Thank you for sharing this with us at Thoughts of Home on Thursday!

  8. Carol Cook says:

    Everything is simply beautiful. I especially love the board running down the center of the table. You have given me a great idea. I am going to look for just the right piece of driftwood for me to put on our dining room table.

    Thanks for sharing at SYC.

  9. Jann Olson says:

    Beautiful for Spring! I love that board as well. I am definitely a color person, but once in a while a neutral table is beautiful. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
