Here’s To The Ladies Who Lunch Spring Tablescape

Are you as anxious for Spring to arrive as I am?  It is March, I live in Florida, so as far as I am concerned it is time for a Spring tablescape!Here's To The Ladies Who Lunch

This table is  all about celebrating the ladies who lunch, just four ladies who have the time to sit at a pretty table, chat and catch up with one another’s lives.  aa

I really wanted to go all pastels with this table, and this is the tablecloth I wanted to use.  Now, I can mix prints and patterns, but this was not going to go in my dining room with those print dining chairs.  Yuck!

tttYou are probably tired of seeing this throw I bought at Ikea, but it made all the difference!  It muted the colors of the tablecloth underneath just enough to make this work with my dining room chairs.  The pastel was still there, but no quite so “in your face”.  Now I could go to work setting my table.  Here's to the ladies who lunchA lovely chicken salad will be served, so green and pink Depression Glass dishes were added to the table with nuts and crackers.
Here's to the ladies who lunch 2Yes, I overdid the plate stack, using Ikea candle trays for chargers, I love the punch work in them, don’t you?  The pastel yellow plates were a Home Good’s discovery.  My Miss America Depression Glass, handed down to me from my mother provided salad plates topped with a pale pink floral dessert plate.  aaabbb Here's to the ladies who lunch 3

The yellow crystal coupes will be set aside, I am thinking about just tucking two or three pastel macaroons into each one for a light dessert.  Spring green napkins were rolled and tucked into floral napkin rings to suggest that Spring is right around the corner.  What would you serve for a ladies’ luncheon?  Do you ever get a chance to host a luncheon?

  1. Chloe, so feminine and pretty…love the use of your depression glass! Macarons…yes!

  2. Ooh, I love how you toned down that pastel tablecloth, Chloe! I have one of those plaid pastels too, and it does sort of get sugary otherwise. May need to get myself something sheer to lighten up my too bright cloths. Great idea.

  3. Delightful spring tablescape. Gorgeous flowers. Love the subtle pastels peaking through your soft throw.
    Yes, I love to host luncheons. Quiche and salad with fruit or chicken salad with fruit and a yummy rich dessert is the usual because all can be made ahead. My problem usually is cutting down the guest list.

  4. Chloe, this is so pretty! Your floral centerpiece is stunning and all the pastel touches are beautiful. What a beautiful table for your guests, and the menu sounds delicious! I hope you are enjoying your week!!!

  5. Your stack is not overdone at all, I love it! The Ikea throw over the pastel cloth was the perfect solution. It’s been ages since I’ve hosted a luncheon for my gal pals and it’s on my to-do list for spring. The menu you’ve planned sounds delicious and the only thing I’d add would be another dessert. Maybe two. You know I can get carried away with the sweets!

  6. You and I were on the same page with our tablescapes- you’ll have to come by and see! The floral arrangement is gorgeous and of course the dishes are so pretty! I love pastels but they can be hard to incorporate with decorating. I like the idea of muting the tablecloth. I love chicken salad on a croissant and some fresh fruit cut up. Something chocolate for dessert!

    Just beautiful and so elegant! Thank you!

  8. What time should I be there? It’s perfectly dreamy Chloe! Ahh, the good ole days when ladies lunched! Love the layered cloths and soft pastels, just beautiful~
