Newbies In My Kitchen

Hello ladies, hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. It's a beautiful sunny Spring day here on gulf coast, so my day is going GREAT! Yes, I have some NEWBIES here in my kitchen to share with you today. Do you ever get in a hurry to make a tablescape because company is coming? Well, last week that's just what I found myself doing and guess what? I'm sooooo loving them...today I will share my kitchen table and tomorrow it will be my LITTLE GREEN TABLE, so be sure to come back to see it.
                                                                     Thank ya for coming,
                                                                               Linda

Yes...this is a 5 minute tablescape!!!

This cake stand came from my MIL's estate...I always love
seeing it here in my nest!
My little RED YARN BIRDIE from Target.
Another family piece...is this white ironstone platter
from my grandmother.
Over on my kitchen buffet...I added
a monogram to this huge
red platter.

I won the monogram from a giveaway last summer...yes
I almost forgot about it!
                                            Also a little bit of SPRING is showing up around
                                                        here...hope to get my Easter decor
                                                                      out this week!

Donnie said...

I'm loving it but what are the 2 balls by the birdie. Looks like pussy willows and something. Really unusual.

Elizabeth (Blue Clear Sky) said...

I especially love the family pieces, the gorgeous cake stand and the ironstone. Very pretty.

laxsupermom said...

So pretty! The little bird is adorable! And I love the pussy willow(?) balls accompanying it on the cake stand. Love the new monogrammed platter! Thanks for sharing.

Karen said...

What a pretty tablescape. I have an addiction to cake stands and that one is amazing.

Cozy Home Scenes said...

I love plate stands, which is odd because I never use them. The designs in that one are very pretty.

How fun to have company and so nice to pull together a cute table to enjoy good times in front of. Hope you've had a great weekend!

La said...

Love your sweet yarn bird. The monogram really pops against the red platter.

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

*giggles* I am always in a hurry, but I think everything looks fantastic! Good job!

Erin said...

Well I must say a 5 minute tablescape by you would still beat a 2 hour one by me! Love the MIL's cakestand, and those balls are super cool!

Blondie's Journal said...

Very pretty, Linda. I can't set the table in 5 minutes on a regular night! lol!

XO,
Jane

Donna said...

You did a great job! I love the cake stand! I have a passion for them and I don't know why I have so many!
Hugs,
Donna

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

Very pretty. I love to display things on the cake stands!

mississippi artist said...

That cake stand is georgeous! And the little nest with the eggs is just perfect for spring!

Jane said...

Very pretty!! Your pictures really showcase how beautiful all of your pieces are. I love the cake plate and the gorgeous ironstone. I need to get out the cake plate I found at a garage sale last summer for $1.00 (or maybe I should save that for a NTT).
Happy Sunday.
Jane

Judy said...

Hey! I won one of those monograms a year or so ago but haven't used mine yet either...guess I'm waiting on the "perfect" place!

Those pics were where we stayed last summer, I think it was called Lei Lani, it was a really nice condo. We are staying at the Fairfield when we come down in April, same place daughter and SIL stayed at this weekend. I can't wait! I've doing some babysitting in b'ham the end of this month and we'll be going to the beach the first part of April....I'll be sooo ready for some R&R.

Have a great week!
Judy
