I gathered the items for my springtime tablescape on the front porch. I was born in May and Lily of the Valley is of course, the flower of the month of May. As a young college student I went through sorority rush and the sorority I pledged had two flowers, both Lily of the Valley and Forget Me Nots.
Lily of the Valley has always been one of my favorite flowers. Somehow these sweet little bells have become intwined with my life. For a springtime tablescape, it had to revolve around blooms, I considered daffodils, but I could not find a good source for fresh daffodils and didn’t care for any of the artificial ones I found. Therefore, it was back to Lily of the Valley, and fortunately the artificial are so very pretty. This silverware is one of my most beloved treasures. This silverware belonged to a friend who passed away some years ago. She had no heirs, so all of her belongings were left to another dear friend who knew of my love of Lily of the Valley and gifted this to me. By the way, the table isn’t dirty, it is the finish, which I LOVE!
Stemware is also a gift from my husband’s grandmother. I have spent hours on Replacements and eBay, only to learn that I have no idea of the pattern or manufacturer of these delicate treasures.
Placemats are faux boxwood to give a little of the outdoor garden feel, topped with my Ikea candle trays standing in as chargers. This table required simple napkin ring treatment, delicate pale yellow and pink ribbons were all that was required.
I will be serving some muffins with flavored butters with the meal, so I wanted to include the sweet little butter spreaders on each place setting. Pale pink and yellow napkins were layered together coordinating with the dish stack. The yellow plates are by Nicole Miller Home discovered years ago at Home /goods.
