End of Winter Tablescape

The snow is melting!
The temperatures are expected to reach
60 degrees here on Friday! 
Here is one last tablescape using subtle winter colors.


Goodbye pinecones...

Goodbye scarf...

Goodbye sun that sets too early...




Soon these browns will be traded in for bright pinks!





Spring is only a month away!
My next tablescape will be full of color!



Thanks again for Susan for hosting!

  1. Very nice! I really like your centerpiece! Good weather coming here too...it's going to be 75 here on Friday after really cold weather! Problem is, I'll be in Chicago where it will be in the 40's :(

  2. I'd love to see your browns paired with your bright pinks!!! Hey...every time I come to your blog, I try to avert my eyes to I don't catch any of your side section. Why? Because every time I do, my eyes go straight to the words "pina colada", and then I want one!!! I am seriously sitting here considering a little trip to the grocery store for some fresh pineapple to make one! Doggone it!!! I'll have to change out of my pajamas! Oh, well! ;-) Thanks for stopping by my blog this evening. I appreciate it! Have a wonderful week!

  3. It will be quite awhile before we can say bye to winter in our neck of the woods but I sure enjoyed seeing yours farewell! Love the green of the topiaries with the browns on your table! Your dishes are really pretty too.

  5. You've skillfully created a perfect transitional tablescape that calls to mind the dusk of winter and gives rise to hopes for the dawn of spring. Perfect choices for your room and that marvelous light kissing the table. Thank you for sharing your beautiful design and for stopping by my post. Cherry Kay

  6. I think everyone has spring fever! I love your winter tablescape, especially the plates, chargers and the nice touch the pinecones add. I'm looking forward to seeing the pinks...

    By the way they are saying 60's maybe 70's for us, we earned it!
