Butterfly Garden Tablescape

Where is Spring?  
Really, 
Where IS it?  
We had snow this week 
and now freezing rain!  
But I am trying to stay positive 
in light of the dismal weather.  
I was shopping after work today 
at the Costco 
and I saw that they had put out 
some Perennials for sale.  
So I picked up a flat of Dianthus 
and some Pincusion Flowers 
which are both good plants 
for attracting butterflies.  
Wow!  
They really do attract butterflies!  
Instead of keeping the plants 
in the garage until planting time 
I decided to enjoy them inside.  
I gave them a temporary home 
in my vintage covered white dishes.
Shhhhh!  
Don't tell anyone 
but this little bowl is missing a handle.  
Hey, what do you want for a dollar?  
Vintage, chippy, crazed goodness that's what!
The butterflies are also attracted 
to the pansies 
that Miss Beaux scouted 
out for me after school.  
I felt like I needed something 
to fill in my water spicket  
planter so she ran out for me.  
April Showers Bring May Flowers 
and my faucet is dripping with crystals!  
This vintage crystal was found 
in a box of chandy parts 
that I bought at an Estate Sale.  
There are some good ones coming up this Friday!  
Stayed tuned to my Instagram for updates.  


Spring Green and Purple,
one of my favorite combinations.
Before you know it Easter will be here.
This would be a fun table for Easter.

Of course, 
I incorporated my Burlap runner 
to coordinate with my Dish Cupboard 
I hope Spring is treating you better 
than it is me
 in my neck of the woods!  
Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves,

This is SO cute and creative! I love everything about it! Sadly, we seem to have the same weather that you do. Let's hope that Spring shows up soon!

Your flowers are so pretty and perfect for ushering in spring. I love the crystal at the end of the spigot.

I love the water spigot planter. Everything looks lovely.

Alycia Nichols said...

What a super, super, super duper idea to put that crystal "dripping" out of the faucet of the planter!!! That is so cute!!!

So how'd you like the weather TODAY?!??!?!!! Wasn't that crazy??!?!?! Snow flurries last night, then rain all night long, then thunderstorms this morning, then clear skies, then more thunderstorms, then hail with a tornado watch, then clear skies again. It made me dizzy!!!!!!!! I didn't know whether to grab a snow shovel, an umbrella or a Dramamine!!!

Enjoy those beautiful flowers both indoors and out!, and have a terrific weekend!

I love that little, crystal prism, waterdrop....it's such a sweet touch! And I'm a fan of plants in ironstone...I did some in my spring bay window post and am enjoying looking at it all day long. Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Dear Cindy, very sweet tablescape! Where did you find your faucet with birds-planter?? I collect bird items and it or something similar would be most welcome here. Happy spring to you from a new friend. :)

Hello, I'm visiting via Home Sweet Home. Your garden tablescape is so pretty. I love that prism hanging from the spout, so clever! Thanks for sharing with us.

Cynthia said...

So pretty! I love your "water drop" on the spigot.

Julie said...

I love what you did with the height of the flowers. Such a natural effect. I can easily imagine bees buzzing around looking for pollen. Quite a success.

All The Pretty Dishes said...

This is so pretty - I am so ready for Spring!!

Audrey said...

Beautiful Cindy ... would love to find a pail and faucet like that. Love how you used it in your centerpiece.
Blessings,

Simply lovely. I love the faucet with the bird, it adds so much charm to the whole composition of the tablescape.

Ann Krucek said...

Very cute!! Pansies are just so sweet! Your whole table matches the sweetness of the pansies, love it! You are making me want to start Instagram!!

That water spout planter is fabulous. Don't pansies make you feel better. I just love them.
