Welcome Spring Tablescape

Welcome to Tablescape Thursday!  I am pleased to be hosting a CSN giveaway. Click on the Le Creuset Image at the top of the left of my blog to enter. Becoming a follower allows you two chances to win Napoleonic Bee Tumblers, a Le Creuset Baking Dish set, a Cuisinart ice cream maker, a Cuisinart kitchen scale, a pizelle maker or a waffle cone maker.  I am a huge fan of Tablescape Thursday and would love for one of you to be the winner!  I think the Bee Glasses would look lovely on one of your tablescapes.

My forsythia still isn't in full bloom yet, so thankfully I have some lovely daffodils to grace this table.  I don't think anything welcomes in spring more than daffodils and the color yellow!  You may have seen these floral dishes before in the first tablescape my daughter Tati did.  This is my first time using them in a tablescape.

Welcome to my springtime tablescape.  I am so glad that you could make it!
A closeup of one of the plates; each plate is unique.

Oops!! You can't see the blooms with this angle!

So here are the blooms!  It is a very sunny, but blustery day!  You can see the blue sky and clouds in the reflection on the table top.

So here is a view of all the placesettings.  I just love the blooms!  I love these quilted placemats with these dishes.  I got them for a song on a Wal-Mart clearance; they were either a quarter or fify cents.

We are serving Orange Marmalade Cake for dessert; I hope you have saved some room!  This cake boasts a whipped cream and sour cream frosting: I hope you won't pass on dessert!

I wanted to show you a closeup of this wonderful cake!  I am posting the recipe and a bit of the storied history of this recipe for Foodie Friday and Alphabe-Thursday tomorrow. 

I am so sorry that you have to leave.  I have so enjoyed your visit.  Come have one more look at the Tablescape and DON'T FORGET TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY!

I love the soft colors and how each plate is different but still goes together.

That cake looks like Heaven!

Pretty setting, and that icing looks fantastic!

Marigene said...

Joni, this table is so pretty with all the soft buttery yellows and oh my goodness, the cake looks delicious! Thanks for the recipe...

Tricia said...

Such a pretty table! I love the soft colors you've used in the table linens and china -- they really allow the gorgeous daffodils to shine! I didn't realize spring came to Utah so late -- our forsythia is long gone, alas.

The table is fantastic. The everything goes together so perfectly - I just love it. I also can't believe that cake. It's absolutely scrumptious looking and I'll bet it tastes even better.
