I don't know about you, but I have wondered back and forth if Spring really is here?! We have been having blips of winter still visit us and in the last 2 days it feels like summer...did we skip Spring all together? It has been so weird!

So here is my beautiful Spring tablescape. All dressed up in soft pinks, blues and greens...
I have had these plates for over 7 yrs. now and they are still my favorite! I bought them at Wal-mart when I lived in Iowa. They were having a clearance sale on them so I bought enough for 12 place settings! They were $.50 for each small plate and a $1.00 for the big ones! I bought 12 of the flower, and there are other small plates that look just like the big plates. So pretty and such a great thrifty find!
The light rose colored glasses I just bought at Pier One...on sale for a $1.49 a glass! I bought 8 in the light rose and 8 in a turquoise blue. Great for water. The goblets came from Wal-mart as a set of 4 for less than $5.oo . They are nice and heavy and I love using them for strawberry lemonade.
Aren't these flowers gorgeous?! I again found a great sale on these very pretty pink roses...Albertsons! They were selling them a dozen for $6.oo!! I bought the white flowers at Wal-mart and unless you look close, the green hydrangeas are...fake! I saw a florist in a magazine show that you can mix fake flowers with real ones in arrangements to save on money, as long as they "look" real. Such a clever idea! My runner is from Target, of course on sale. I only paid $4.oo for it. I bought the candle holders from Michaels a couple of years back and paid $.50 for each of them.
I bought some pretty pink candles that smell great too at Pier One. The green napkins came with a tablecloth on sale at Kohls that I bought a couple years ago. I just wrapped some sheer pink and gross grain ribbon around them and hot glued little name cards on the ends. I bought these little cards at Wal-mart for about $1.50. Sprinkled some white and clear vase filler beads on the runner and dropped some rose petals here and there. The only expensive thing I have on the table is my stainless steel silverware, even then I bought it on sale for such a great price!
Here are my cute birdies on my table as well. Remember all I did with my Spray Paint Magic?!
It just goes to show you don't have to spend alot to have a beautiful tablescape!
Here are some other areas Spring has sprung in my home!
Spring definitely has arrived on my front door! I love the mixture of pink, whites and reds!
I adore my apothecary jars! I change them out with the seasons and love to group them together.
Here are those cute little moss bunnies I posted on ... They were such a great deal!
Of course I had to show you some pretty eggs! Love the green moss peeking through.
Here is my sequined bunny I love! This gorgeous turquoise vase
was a gift from some great friends back in Utah....I cherish this!!

I love getting to share my ideas and creativity with you all! Just a reminder that I will be doing a giveaway soon...don't forget to follow along! A very cute birdie bag I designed just might be yours!!
Lots of hugs and smiles sent your way!
