With cararots, radishes, peas and onions in hand, I thought of all sorts of things that I already had to incorporate into the tablescape...this is going to be a piece of cake! I rushed home, pulled out a basic "earthy" brown linen tablecloth, some simple sisal placemats, and my good old plain white plates to get started.
Of course I'll need some napkins. I remember these deep "carrot orange" linen napkins.
A green napkin for a frilly carrot top, and a little twisting and rolling, and voile! I think my napkins are even cuter sitting atop this paisley "salad" plate. Since my last bouquet of tulips latest an entire week, I decided to stick with a good thing and chose white ones this time.
Absolutely NO flower arranging skills needed with tulips!
I can't wait to see what comes up in my own garden this Spring. I very, very briefly thought about creating a vase out of an actual vegetable...
...but fortunately remembered this quite theme-appropriate cabbage pitcher. I have once again selected my Joseph Abboud South Beach glassware, mainly for its earthy look and brown accents.
Sticking to my theme, I simply scattered some seed packets around the table. Party favors, perhaps?
What do I see hiding behind the cabbage?
Hmmm....I guess if you plant carrots, you're bound to attract a few rabbits.
I suppose I would much rather have them feast at my...
...garden table, instead of my vegetable patch! Make sure to drop by next week for my Easter / Birthday (x3) party table. And don't forget about these fun-filled blog parties...
