How to banish winter and welcome spring?
Bring out something shiny and something blue.
Encircle a napkin the color of the sky with a honeycomb ring buzzing with a bee.
Pick the favorite plates with wonderful vines for the salad course.
Pull out the most cheerful paisley dishes on nito chargers, paired with the blue flatware.
Let the vines peek out from napkin as promises of great things to come.
Antique candle holders to cast mystical light.
And place happy faces on the table before the guests arrive.
Those pretty faces sit inside Flower Bricks and an estate sale find planter raised on a pedestal.
Don't forget to take a last minute look to make sure ALL the flatware, glasses, salt and peppers... oops let me grab those quickly.
And put a pretty lighter on the table to light the candles for when the guests arrive and then sit back and have fun!
