Happy Wednesday, Friends! Anyone else out there have spring fever? Most of you have seen the vintage jadeite collection that dominates every space of my kitchen. While I've shared a variety of jadeite tablescapes on the breakfast table there, this spring I was inspired to introduce the minty green dishes to my dining room. Come see how I mixed several new items with my vintage treasures to create a cheerful spring tablescape.
Occasionally I come across a newer piece that I can't pass because I know it will mix beautifully with my collection. Such was the case with the jade rooster and hen I scored for 30% at World Market recently. Here you can see how lovely they look next to my vintage platter and flower filled bowl.
I'm especially fond of the rooster....
...but I like the hen too.
Before I share the rest of the table, here's a peek from the top. I used a jadeite serving bowl to create a simple floral arrangement with a grocery store bouquet of daisy like asters and fresh mint from my garden. The pretty pink stemware and lacy doily were thrift store finds.
After finding them at Pier One a few years ago, the first time I shared these sweet bunny plates I remember wishing I had jadeite plates that were large enough to pair with them. That was before I scored these fabulous dinner plates at an estate sale last fall. I love them layered between the bunny plates and my favorite doily chargers. You can see how to make these simple place cards here.
Do you have a beautiful vintage tablecloth that is too stained to use? See how to make repurposed flatware pockets here.
Remember these thrift store eggs? Stay tuned--next week I'll be sharing how I gave them a floral mini makeover!
