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.
Have you set a pretty table this week?
