Here's my April Cornell Spring Table:
Here's How It Was Created:
I started with the April Cornell tablecloth I found at HomeGoods. I not only love the vibrant spring colors, but the pattern and precious edging on the cloth.
There were many colors to choose from, but I decided to use yellow as the accent color. So, I started with my placemats from Bed, Bath and Beyond.
I first tried a green plate, then a yellow plate, and then switched my whole plan and went with purple! I just decided to celebrate color today! These plates were found at Anna's Linens and are marked Gallery: Margarita.
The next layer is the dinner plate that I have shared in a previous post: It is English china, labeled Cotswold. I love the way the purple in the dish pops with the purple dish underneath it. I also llike the floral pattern on the plate against the flowers on the April Cornell tablecloth.
Next is the salad plate to the Coswold set.
The table setting is completed with gold flatware on loan from my cousin, glass mugs that I found at Ikea (absolutely cannot believe how well the pattern on the mugs matched the tablecloth! It's like they were designed together!) and the April Cornell napkins.
So, let's salute April!! Let's salute the wonderful colors and designs of April Cornell. Let's salute the birthdays of Lisa, Lucy, Tori and Rosemary. And let's salute the birth of Laura's baby girl, another precious addition to our family, who will one day have a place at our family's table, no doubt decorated with one of Gramma's tablescapes!!
