Spring Pastels


This table was set for Easter brunch in an array of pastel spring colors beginning with the lavendar tablecloth. The scalloped plates in two shades of rose, celadon blue, melon green, colbalt blue, and lavendar, were purchased from the Syracuse China outlet many years ago. 
The pale green luncheon plate with white polka dots served as the holder for the chocolate and chow mein noodle bird's nests.  A small bird was perched on the edge of the plate guarding it's nest.
 I really wanted some lovely napkins at Pottery Barn but at $8.00 each I resisted.  These napkins had all the colors of the table in them and were purchased at World Market for 2.99 each.
The centerpiece as well echoed spring to all the diners. For a tutorial see my last post.
For a bit of whimsy- hanging from the chandelier was colorful paper wind mills in colors that continued the spring theme.
 
  Small cocktail umbrellas added the finishing touch to the glasses
Happy Spring!!
I am linking up to Thursdays Tablescapes today.  Be sure to check out the other lovely tabletops for great ideas.

What a gorgeous centerpiece! Your table is so festive. I love the windmills hanging down from the chandelier. A round table always looks so cozy and warm. The bird nests were a cute idea and added a touch of whimsy which we all need...Joan @Americana By Candlelight

Such a pretty table! I bought those polka-dot plates, too -- love 'em! They work so well with your lovely scalloped plates beneath them. Your centerpiece is spectacular -- I'm heading to your last post to see how you did it!
