I guess the inspiration for this tablescape started with these placemats:
The price was right!
I wanted to use this wire surround for this birds nest:
The little red bird gave a pop to all the greens!
I love this cute little fat red bird! Found it at Michael's last year.
With the addition of red, I added these beautiful Vera napkins that has the red with other bright colors:
And the red handled flatware was a must!
I also found these tiny little birds (made from mushrooms) tucked away in a drawer.
My husband took a walk and brought back the Spanish moss that is plentiful around here in FL.
(We put the bag of it in the freezer overnight to kill any mites on it.)
I couldn't decide whether to put the nest right onto the plate or on top of the napkins.
Which way do you like it better?It shows up better on the plates:
So I choose the plates.
See the tiny nest on top with the blue egg inside:
It even has a little feather in the nest!
I found the wire surround at a tea room/gift shop in Williamsburg, VA a few years ago. They didn't know what to call it. On the receipt they had "Crown" since it is shaped similar to a crown (with a birds nest on top! LOL!)
Below is last week's bird tablescape. It has round placemats that look a little like a birds nest. I love the centerpiece with the ceramic bird and three bird nests! I also love the soft neutral colors. Click here to see everything.
Which is your favorite? One is neutral, one is bright.
