And continuing with thoughts of spring decorating….
When you enter my house the dining table is in full view from the entry. In a desperation move while babysitting my 3 granddaughters, I stuck some fake lavender in a glass jar and thought that I could get away with it.
I was called out on that move by a family member who was a little horrified I had fake flowers. I admit they were not good fakes. I defensively pointed out I had beautiful fresh, pink tulips on my kitchen table, but I was caught. Time to make amends.
Nothing denotes spring like new growth, green and/or plants.
Lately I’ve been seeing live plants in lanterns. I like the look and feel, but my place is not a lantern kind of home. I already tried the plainest one I could find, and moved it all over the downstairs rooms to no avail. It went back to Pier 1.
Keeping it simple
So I decided to keep my dining table decor simple by choosing three green things massed together in a small trough planter. I’m talking ferns, real ones.
Tried the green candles, a no go for me. I wish the bird was a little smaller, but that’s what I have!
Still playing with the arrangement. This will go on for weeks every time I pass the table. Some day soon I’m sure the lot will end up corralled in a gray or white tray. Things always do on this table.
Remember this pic from a my friend Gail’s house I featured in this post? I envy her the copper bird planter. A planter and a bird all in one – my idea of perfect.
