Flowers, Butterflies, Birds & Bees Tablescape!

Birds are singing, bees are buzzing, butterflies are flitting...
all over my Spring table. 


How much more spring like could a table be ~vivid flowers,
and butterfly~bird~bee accents.
We're all dressed up for the challenge at
this week.
My table starts with a vintage E/S Town & Country tablecloth.  This ID was
provided to me by a member of the Vintage Tablecloth Lovers Club, a fun club
with great resource information. Stop by the public pages if you can!
My mid-century modern dishes are Russel Wright - Casual China - by Iroquois.
Napkins are vintage Vera with fern & butterfly design. 
I added vintage butterfly and bee pins to the table. 
Candleholders are new Homer Laughlin Fiesta. 
You can spy a little bee and butterfly pin flitting around the top of the flowers. 
Vintage butterfly pins on the napkin and on the bowl cover.
More vintage pins on the other napkin.
The  blue pitcher is vintage Cronin-tulip pattern, and
belonged to my Mom. 
The sweet birds are all pie birds.  The Cardinal is newer Pflatzgraf and
the sweet yellow chick is a vintage Josef Original.
This sweet bluebird piebird is watching over her nest.

SPRING.....a time of renewal and growth,
and now also a time of healing of the body for some, 
and of the soul for all of us, due to our recent trying times.  
We're all dressed up for the challenge at
Let's Dish at Cuisine Kathleen this week.
It starts Wednesday, so treat yourself to a visit!
