Carrot Tops

I am in the middle of packing.
Lots of boxes everywhere.
So I picked a few things out
here and there.
Trying to make a tablescape.......
(And keep in mind it is a very loose
use of the term 'trying'.)

I put my
out on the back deck.
Ignore the stacked chairs, etc.
Even things on the deck are
stacked and ready to move.

I found a piece of springtime fabric
in the fabric box
and used that as a giant runner.
I had some Easter stuff out.
I found the big blue plates
in a closet that has not been packed.

I used the "plate holders"
as chargers again.
Obviously they fit the plates....
since they are plate holders!
My girls bought me a bunch of the
navy plates
at an estate sale.
They mix with lots of things I own.

I put some simple eyelet napkins
in a blue goblet.

I filled a pretty blue vase with my
giant carrots from last year and tied a
white burlap bow around it.

Simple, fast, and full of carrots!

Then I saw the blue dot bowls
sitting in the box
and I decided to try them
on the table as well.

I liked them too,
but eventually went back
to the carrot plates.
Maybe next year with the bowls.....

                              Now back to packing!
Have a wonderful Easter.
