Sunny Springtime Table

With fading thoughts for a bright, rain-free, warm day, it seems like we will never see the sun again. While rain and hail pour down, the wind is blowing Arctic-like cold air from the north. Local rivers are swollen and, in some places, overflowing. Many roads are closed or opened to one lane only with dangerous slides and washouts throughout the county. Uncharacteristic snow is falling everywhere but right along the ocean.....just another "fun" day in the Redwood coastal area of Northern California.

But I digress - this is a tablescaping blog - not a forum on weather. Pat took pity on me this week and set a cheery table so I can dream of sunshine.......
I am soooooo happy with this table because it is bright.

To start the tablescape, Pat loosely layered the table with rows of yellow mesh

Flatware is "April" by Wm Rogers & Son

The dinnerware is "Embossed Leaf" from the Maryland China Company
