“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you”
Hello sweet friends. I am so glad you are here today for a little springtime inspiration. But first things first, I received emails from so many of my sweet readers asking if we were safe from the tornadoes that hit Alabama on Sunday afternoon. We live about 120 miles from where the tornadoes hit in Lee County. My thoughts and prayers are for all those who have lost loved ones. There are 23 known deaths and people are still missing. The devastation of property is unbelievable. So many lost everything they had. They are saying as of last night that it was an EF4 tornado with winds of 170 mph and that it was a mile wide. Six tornadoes were recorded in Alabama on Sunday. There is still flooding in our area around Weiss Lake and the Coosa River. Thank you so much for praying for my fellow Alabamians. We are prone to tornadoes, and if you have ever been near one, it is so very terrifying!
On a lighter note, I have joined a group of talented tabletop stylists hosted by Chloe from Celebrate & Decorate to bring you springtime tablescapes. You can find the links for all at the bottom of this post. Come in out of the cold, and join me for a botanic garden!
The centerpiece might look somewhat familiar if you saw Monday Morning Blooms. I did add pinkish-purplish spider lilies to give it more of a spring look!
With its delightful mix of floral motifs and signature leaf border, it is a true British classic designed by the celebrated designer Susan Williams-Ellis. Each plate has the common and scientific name of the flower.
Floral placemats were layered over a blush pink tablecloth and often used American Atelier “Baroque” chargers held the dinner plates. Vintage Fostoria water glasses and Noritake “Rainbow” iced tea stemware complete the place setting!
“A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.”
Thank you so much for your visits and taking time to comment! Wishing you all a joy-filled day!
You don’t want to miss any of these spring tablescapes. Be sure to come back each day as new ones that will go live1
