Last weekend was a fast-paced, action-packed one with houseguests and lots to do. Dinner one evening was a very quick, child friendly one and I put this table together in a blink. It was such a simple design that I almost decided that it might not be of interest to many readers. Then, I decided that I shouldn't try to kid you......I DO simple!!! We all do!!! These daffodil napkin rings from Pottery Barn together with some daffodil themed dishes made a simple but cheerful tablescape.
Green ribbed placemats on the bare dining room table, light yellow woven napkins and light stained wooden handled flatware kept this very casual. These placemats didn't photograph very well. They really are a brighter apple green.
This china pattern is a cute one, isn't it? But, it's easy to see why I only use it in the spring and the back to "the vault" it goes. The daffodil and the border are my favorite things in the design.
Here are the particulars on the pattern. I should also mention that it is dishwasher proof and that makes it easy to throw on the table for a simple meal.
Salad plates feature an iris and some more yellow. I'm playing with an idea for a soft lavender table, and I'm making a note to remember to see if this piece works.
These water glasses are sturdy and dependable. We chose then when we got married many years ago. They are Imperial Glass.
This little doily was from the dollar bin at Michael's from their Shabby Chic collection and the urn is one I use a lot, but I can't remember where it came from.
These little votives are from the floral wholesaler. I got a bunch in pink, too.
Same Imperial glass in the salt and peppers as in the stems.
I thought I would put lots of cut daffodils in this urn, but I found a small pot of bulbs and just dropped it in.
They did the trick!
It was a great evening with dear ones around the table. What more could you want?
