Springtime Tablescapes for Two

Staying at home means making more meals in the kitchen and on the grill.  Setting a pretty table helps raise spirits, and eating outside is a nice change as the weather gets warmer.  So, I set a lovely but simple table to enjoy a warm evening.  My Sweet Babboo grilled some pork chops and we had a delicious dinner enjoying the scenery.

Using a spring green and bright yellow theme, I put yellow napkins in clear rings, and set the table with everyday flatware.

I found these covers at the thrift store some years ago and they are great to keep plates clean and food covered while outside.

The setting begins with the spring green placemat, set with yellow chargers that have a lacy, cutout edge.  Then white dinner plates are topped with lemon salad plates.

Crystal drink glasses and individual salt and pepper sets complete the settings.

In the center, one of the geraniums that I overwintered in a pretty pot is flanked with mason jar candles holding yellow silk flowers in the bases.

A lovely warm spring evening was perfect for an outdoor meal, enjoying the budding spring flowers and the redbud tree.  When the meal was over, all the components were brought inside.

Then, I thought the pub table needed a fresh update with Easter in mind as that is coming up this weekend.  I love this little duck with her cute hat and egg.

I made a tulip centerpiece with white and pink silk tulips and some greenery in a white ceramic basket.  My adorable little Easter rabbit train that I’ve had for many years is placed in front of the basket.

Then I set two places in spring green with pink.

Spring green napkins are held with flower pot napkin rings.

Pink and green salad plates top white dinner plates on spring green chargers with white placemats.

Once again, crystal water glasses and individual salt and pepper sets complete the settings.  Since this one is inside, it will stay up through next weekend.  We’ll eat our daily meals here, unless we want to have another meal outside.  It really depends on the weather.

    Carole,
    Beautiful tablescapes and what a view you have! It was a delight to meet you at the QOV award ceremony in Brevard last month. I have shared your To The Nines pattern with my QOV group and I use the “quilt netting” as I call it for quilt (and some block) construction whenever possible. We had to leave our little red house to return to hot, flat Florida before our red buds fully bloomed so I have enjoyed seeing yours. Your blog posts are delightful and I look forward to them. Hope you and yours stay healthy!

    Fresh and cheerful! Love especially the outside table look. Those food screens look awesome on the plates! Happy Easter week, Carole.

    Love all the decorative items, plates etc, and those food covers are great – you could even decorate a plain one for different seasons. Good to see you are both keeping safe – best wishes x

  4. You gave my spirits a boost. Here in Minnesota we are not so far along, some spring days and then some cool, dreary days. We crave Spring so badly especially in these times. Thanks.

    beautiful table settings and nice to continue to still do as always you just without the family or friends you normally have but it is nice to keep things pretty

  6. What a lovely and inviting Spring theme tablescape. Thanks for sharing and inspiring. You’ve inspired me to create such for our table, as I agree 100% that it does bring good cheer.

    Love, love, the Easter Train, the Flower pot rings, the plates…everything. Spring is Here.
    The dome covers are so nice, raffia? or ribbon? embroidery?
    With a chef father and a cook/baker mother I was unnecessary in the kitchen so they would shoo me off to set the table. My husband of 39 years still wonders why we 2 people need napkin rings and 4 pieces of silverware to eat a PBJ but here’s my theory. I’d rather take out the silver while I have my hand in the drawer than run back to the kitchen for a spoon.
    Still chilly up here but the forsythia get a little nudge and are trying to bloom.

    Love those plate covers! We’ve been eating outside some as the weather warms up; it’s a nice change of pace. Your tables are always so pretty!

    Hello Carole, Such lovely tables you have set up for Spring and Easter! You know me, I just love everything about your table settings. Plus, with all of the special items you display along with the glorious spring colors you use, your special talents bring tremendous amounts of much needed delights and thoughts of why this season is so wonderful. Thank you for sharing another spectacular post! Have a splendid day!

  10. Beautiful. Sometime though would like to see your cabinets and where you store these items. I have just enough room for dinner plates, soup/pasta bowls, bread/salad plates, custard bowls, cereal/rice bowls, serving bowls are on top of oval serving platters.

    Lovely table setting for dining al fresco. And those food covers – how cute!
    You must have a very large dresser to store all your beautiful tableware. I hope the cook’s offering stood up to the challenge of your lovely table setting!!? :))
