Sunshine and Roses

Today is the first day of Spring… and I’m still waiting for it.  It’s only supposed to reach 45 degrees today and it’s overcast.  I’m longing for some sunshine, warm breezes & the ability to open the windows.  (It’s been a long Winter)

Since there is no sunshine outside, I thought I’d bring some sunshine inside with lots of yellow.   Welcome to my Sunshine and Roses Tablescape.

Sunshine and Roses Tablescape

Because it’s so dreary, I started the tablescape with a yellow table cloth topped with a white lace table cloth.  Then I added mirrored place mats.  (anything to brighten up the table)  Silver flatware, yellow napkins held by clear napkin rings brought in more sunshine.  Clear glassware with yellow bottoms added even more sunshine.

On the place mats, I added white china that have a ring of tiny yellow roses.

I brought in more yellow with the centerpiece & table scatter.

The centerpiece is made up of floating Daffodil flowers.

I’ll be showing a tutorial on how to make this centerpiece tomorrow.

And I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t light the candles!

I love what the lit candles do to the place setting.

Even if there is no sunshine outside, I have it inside.
