Tablescape Thursday

Tablescape Thursday time! Thanks to Susan for hosting so we can all share and have fun with tablescaping! Go here for lots more inspiration.
Inspiration for this tablescape came from this cute little bluebird tea pot. I wanted to do a spring bluebird tablescape, and use what I already have without buying anything.
These little red high top tennis shoes gave me the idea to use red instead of pastels. How cute are these shoes! He just cracks me up!
I used these red polka dot dishes with red chargers instead of using pastels.
I bought this bluebird tea pot, the little bluebird salt and pepper shakers, and the bluebird dish, at Cracker Barrel a few years ago.
The bluebird candy dish

The wire "surround" above was purchased at a tea room in Williamsburg, VA several years ago, along with the little paper mache' blue bird. The tea room saleslady didn't know what to call the wire "surround" either, on the receipt she wrote "crown!"
It has a small bird's nest with an egg, and a tiny feather on top.
I thought about using it in Marty's cloche party last week, but decided it probably didn't qualify for a cloche!

These red napkins were used before in a tablescape and left folded this way. I'm thinking they are in the shape of a bird house so I'm using them with this bluebird tablescape.
The clear crystal-look flatware

This little paper mache' bluebird is on the other end of the table:

The bluebird has a daisy on his head
Hmmm, wonder if it's a boy or a girl!


I hope you enjoyed my bluebird tea time tablescape. Even though it's a bluebird, I keep thinking of the song "Rockin' Robin!" Those red hightops create the image in my mind!

Have a happy day!
God Bless.

Katherine

Katherine, this is just gorgeous. I love your pretty little blue birds, and the little teapost is so precious. Love those red shoes. The red chargers and polka dot plates are exquisite. I am just drooling. Love them. The little wire crown could just about qualify as a cloche. Tooooooo cute. Everything is just so lovely. Hugs, Marty

Katherine, I agree, this little bird is adorable, and it cracks me up too. No wonder you were inspired by it! I love how you carried the red color of his funny high top sneekers into your chargers, plates and napkins.
I would love to have your flatware! Talk about going with everything and making a statement about detail! Oh, they are wonderful.
This table is sweet and whimsical, and just a little bit "rock around the clock"!

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Hello Katherine ~I've truly missed my visits, but little by little I'm catching up.
Although last month was difficult with our loses a new month has brought new hope.
I poured myself a cup of tea and read a spell...
These adorable blue birds add the perfect touch to your tablescape.
They bring a personality to the whole look, red sneekers blending with the red dots as well. This setting bring a smile to my face!

I'm so excited to see spring blooms popping up. I look forward to applying the inspirational palette of colors into a few DIY decorations and gifts, with a little baking/cooking in between.
Don't you love the aroma that fills the air during this season?
It's definitely invigorating.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

What's not to like about that tablescape?! I adore those cute bluebirds. I thought for sure they were vintage. Don't know how I missed them at Cracker Barrel. What a great find. That silverware is pretty too. I've never seen the clear like that. Like the polka dots too. Have a good rest of the weekend!
