forced spring bulbs tablescape

Spring bulbs are always an indication the seasons are about to change over to more sunshine and blooms and time outdoors. This forced spring bulbs tablescape radiates all the spring vibes.

the inspiration for a forced spring bulbs tablescape

The inspiration for the table were not only the bulbs, but also the pretty floral linens and some newly thrifted pewter accent plates. I love how all the greens, blues, gray|silvers come together to set a peaceful and happy table.

The bulbs are a mix of Daffodils planted in pewter pieces while the Narcissus {paperwhites} are forced in glass containers. The bulbs line the center of the table on top of my {chippy shutter centerpiece}.

the pieces to this spring inspired tablescape

The plate stack starts with a cotton gray placemat, which is followed by a galvanized charger. The charger is then followed by a chunky white Portuguese dinner plate and a pewter accent plate. It is topped off by a preserved boxwood wreath, which adds to the spring | garden vibes, and it is all crowned by the criss-crossed silverware.

I recently just used the boxwood wreaths in my {Wedgwood Jasperware St. Patrick’s Day tablescape}. I got the wreaths not too long ago and I can.not get enough of them. You will be seeing them in plenty of projects.

The linens are a recent buy from the store I work at {Whim House}. They are from a company called Natural Habitat and the pattern is Maya. I love the hand block printed design, plus the color palette totally spoke to me, so needless to say I was totally smitten.

Another recent addition to my table top repertoire are these pewter accent plates {I know, it’s a weakness, but you all understand, right? lol}. I found the pewter plates during my latest thrifting excursion where I also found the silver basket I recently shared here {how to decoupage Easter eggs}.

I only scored four of these fabulous pewter plates but I hope to find additional pieces in the future. Even if they don’t match exactly it’s ok since I love to mix and match my table top pieces. I love pewter and these plates are old-school and very well made. They are marked “Pewter” on the back and the maker is the Colonial Casting Co. in Meriden, Connecticut.

The color of the spring green ball jars compliment the boxwoods, linens and bulbs themselves, which I absolutely love. Green is my favorite color and the color of these green ball jars just scream cheeriness to me.

the spring bulbs are a sign of the new growth getting ready to sprout

The weather in California has been giving us spring vibes for awhile now and I have already started working on some projects outside. I love the anticipation a new season brings.

Bulbs have popped up outside in our front yard. I can’t wait to share them with you and I am super excited for the first day of spring in a few days and all the things it will bring.

    1. Thanks so much Niki. Yes, I hemmed & hawed over those plates and I am glad I chose to get them. I love pewter! Have a great day & thank you so much for the feature! XO- MJ

  7. MaryJo, I love how your table turned out with all the pewter and green!! My daughter is a green fanatic so I look for green things wherever I go. 😉 My parents last home was in Southbury, Connecticut, which I don’t think was too far from Meriden, if I remember correctly. It’s definitely doable driving since being mostly from California (42 yrs.), we are SOOO used to driving long distances to get anywhere, huh?, lol!!! ;D Waterbury, CT, which is the next town over from Southbury has Waterbury Pewterer and you can go watch the masters create pieces. Exceptional quality, if you ever find anything thrifting! They have a shop, too, and Mom would take me over to find a few things: small Christmas ornaments, a creamer/sugar on an oval plate (wedding gift), and a big pewter bowl which is perfect for arranging flowers.

    Anyway, so happy to share your post at this week’s Share Your Style #380, which I know you know about. 🙂 Hope you had a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day!

    Spring hugs,
    Barb 🙂

I love hearing from you!
