Spring Table - Blog Hop

Welcome to my spring table filled with sunny yellow accents to brighten up our grey days here in Northeast Ohio.
My spring table is part of the Spring Tablescape Blog Hop organized by Chloe Crabtree of Celebrate & Decorate.  If you came over from Belle Blue Interiors, Welcome!!!
The list of blogs involved in this hop is near the end of my post, so be sure to check out all of the wonderful spring tables - sure to inspire your spring decorating.
We still have snow on the ground here - so sometimes it is hard to think of full blown spring at this time of the year. We still get snow all through March and sometimes in April - which is a bit discouraging at times.  
We look forward to sunny, warmer days!

So I thought I would bring a little bit of my favorite signs of spring to my table. 
I love to see the crocuses straining to be the first to make their appearance.
Some of the best sounds are from all the waterfowl on our lake quacking and honking as they are making their way back home,
The birds are busy gathering their nest materials and chirping happily as they work.

I made some sweet little favor boxes and filled them with crocus bulbs, if you get them in the ground between freeze and thaws - there is a chance they will still do well this year.

I will be doing a post later in the week on how to make the sweet little favor boxes - so please stop back!!  CLICK HERE for that post! 

For more fabulous Spring Table inspiration - follow the hop!
Next up is the Zucchini Sisters!

I hope you have sunny days ahead and you enjoy all the signs of spring around you!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.


  1. Ann, I so look forward to see how you style your table for the seasons or holiday and what little favors you have stamped up to include. Love your layering of placemats to accent your dishes and add color and texture! Those ducks are darling...we hear honking and splashing outside our windows regularly. As always it’s a treat to join you at the table and blog hop with you. Happy March. ♥

  2. Ann, you may have snow on the ground but your table is singing it is spring. The pairing of yellow and gray is just beautiful. I always love your mix of patterns and colors. The yellow plaid rimmed plates are stunning for spring or summer. The favor boxes are too cute. It is always a pleasure to join you for blog hopping and to sit at one of your lovely tables. Happy March!

  3. So cute, we both have watering can napkin rings! Love the little nests on your plates. We sometimes have snow in April too, wishing for warmer days too.

  4. Ann, such a delightful spring table. The hello and grey works beautifully. Love the plate stack. Mixing patterns and texture makes everything pop. Those ducks are so adorable. I love your favor boxes, such a delight for guests. It seems to be your signature for every table, so special. Always a pleasure to hop along with you.

  5. Ann, your tables are always my favorites, and this one really makes me smile! Those chicks with hats are too cute! The yellow and gray color palette is perfect for early spring, with a nest of eggs and the very special crocus favor box! It's all so happy and adorable!❤️

  6. Your table is so pretty for Spring, I'd never know there is snow on the ground around this home. Here in middle Georgia, our Winter has been mild with copious amounts of rain. Seems we are all looking forward to Spring weather.
    I love your colors. They really give me the Spring feels. Those napkin rings are too cute and your favor boxes are precious. I would like to sit at this table, sip tea and stare out the window day dreaming. Happy Spring!

  7. Ann, what an adorable and sunny table! I think the weather in my neck of the woods is about the same as yours --- grey. But you used grey to great effect by pairing it with yellow. I always love how you mix and match patterns, prints and textures.

  8. Your sunny yellow accents are so cheerful. Watering cans and bird nests spell spring to me and yours are so cute. I love your yellow crocus centerpiece. That table cloth will be used often I'm sure.
    I knew you would have a favor box. Your guests are always in for a treat.
    Nice to blog hop again with you.

  9. This is so bright and cheerfull! I love the bright yellow accents which can brighten up the spirit! The yellow looks great next to the gray. Love the crocus and am curious how you made them! Our weather is the same so I know what you are talking about. I do hope we'll have an early spring though!

  10. Ann, your table is both cheerful and beautiful! The yellow tulips are so pretty, and those sweet duck are adorable! Happy March!!!

  11. Ann, I know it'll always be a fun visit coming to your table, and your blues & yellows bring a smile to my face. Love the watering can napkins rings and the little ducks with their paper rain hats on. It truly is a welcome sight to see birds nesting and duck waddling in the neighborhood, and I'm sure even more so for you being a little further north. The anticipation is almost as good as the actual presence of it all. Your table is cross between the two. Cute little favor boxes, and a great idea to gift springtime bulbs!

  12. This is one of my favorite color combos and it always makes me smile. The little ducks with the hats on are just too darn cute.Your setting is beautiful and the placemat/charger combo is right on point. Happy Spring and it's a pleasure to join you again.

  13. Your table is pure sunshine! I love the napkin ring and the cute ducks with the hats. So adorable! I also love the added texture of the nests. So pretty! Happy March!

  14. Ann, what a delightful Spring tablescape with your bulbs, party favor boxes and cute little ducklings and nests. It is such an adorable color combination. I think the yellow that contrasts with the gray really pops and makes everyone cheerful and happy. I love the mix of patterns and textures too. Now I can truly say....Happy Happy Spring.

  15. Oh, I love your style! I just love everything about this tablescape...the gray stripes, sunny yellows, and the cute little favour boxes. And...I also used to be a Stampin Up demonstrator years ago! Hmm...I need to play in my stamps a little more...Happy Spring!

  16. Ann, the watering can napkin rings are the cutest ever. Love the bright yellow dishes and napkins. The flowers are perfect for spring.

  17. Yikes. I'm not sure what happened to the comment I was typing. I was just saying this tablescape is absolutely adorable, Ann! I love the yellow and grey color scheme. It really works well together for contrast. I can't get over how precious those ducks are, too! We saw a few flying around our house the other day, which is unusual in my neck of the woods. Such a sweet tablescape for spring!

  18. Ann, I love your cheerful yellow tablescape and your ducklings are adorable! It is a pleasure hopping with you this week. Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  19. Adorable! Have always loved grey and yellow together!

  20. How adorable your table is! I love the yellow and gray together and those ducks!!! Those sweet little ducklings are so cute, and the perfect thing to ring in springtime! I see we both thought watering cans! I have a set of galvanized ones that are made as napkin rings, too! Thank you for sharing your sweet and happy table for spring!

  21. I love it! Oh my goodness the little duck with their newspaper hats! Your lovely yellow colors are like a ray of sunshine. Your napkin rings are so cute too. I love it all. Pinned and I'll pin the tutorial too. It's a pleasure to hop with you. Hugs!

  22. Ann, I always look forward to your tablescapes! I love the colors you chose...the yellow is like a bit of sunshine. Those ducklings are precious! Those watering can napkin rings are adorable, and of course, those sweet little favor boxes are perfect. Happy Spring! Pinned.
