It's been snowy and cold this week, and the gorgeous Lenten Rose is showing off again in the garden. "She" is always the very first to bloom in my garden, and she is loved.
I have been craving Spring colors, so this week I used one of my favorite shades of green in our table setting. See that shade of green in the center of the Lenten Rose? I call it lime green. Is that what you would call it?
This napkin fold called "Vase" makes a cute container for a flower at each place setting. I used a fresh flower, but you can also use silk flowers. I chose a napkin with a fringed edge.
I removed the salad plate and napkin so we can see the butterflies flitting about.
I used the same salad plates in the four place settings, but changed the dinner plates for a little variety.
I love the lone dragonfly on the dinner plate.
I removed the mums from the napkins as we were pouring the wine, and placed them in small bottles.
Tall, earthy candle holders with lime green candles.
Another option is to tuck your flatware into the napkin if you're not using flowers.

The salad plate is my Roscher & Co. Tuzani Collection which has shown up on tablescapes over the last couple of years
The dragonfly dinner plate is also from Roscher & Co. and is from the Firefly Collection
The butterfly dinner plate is from Gates Ware, designed in California.

The flowers are leftover from St. Patrick's Day, and are in a Blenko vase that I have had for many years. Purchased at one of my favorite local stores Reid and Sheldon that is now closed after many years in business.
Each year for Easter, I color eggshells and fill them with soil to make precious pots for small succulents. Everyone takes home a plant and a chocolate bunny ;o)
Thank you for stopping by! I will be linking up to Tablescape Thursday with Susan at BNOTP.
