Time for Spring

Welcome to Red Couch Recipes!

This was the table that I set for our Sunday Dinner.  Sunday's weather was deliciously warm; just a day or two before it was ferociously cold.  That is Spring in Utah.

This table is built around these plates I bought at Wal-Mart for a song last year.  They are the Better Homes and Garden line.



I used some green salad plates that I have had for a few years.


I used these Christmas napkins on the table.  If I hadn't told you they were Christmas, would you have guessed?



My favorite element of this table are these glasses.  They are also from the Better Homes and Garden Line.  They are plastic -- gasp, and I love them because of their vibrant color.


It has been a long winter, but there is always the hope of spring to cheer us up.  In my mind, it is really time for spring.



Thanks for dropping by Red Couch Recipes.

Some of the prettiest colors in stemware I've seen lately are from plastic ones. I love that you chose them for this table. I want some napkin rings like those. They are so pretty for spring.

...putting them down on that very long list...

Lovely, Joni!

Joni, those green glasses are fabulous! I have some similar clear ones found at Tuesday Morning that we love for outdoor use. I've been wanting to create a GREEN table for spring -- thanks for sharing your inspiration!

I just love this color of green! It is so fun because under your "You might also like" - you have three other beautiful spring tables! I hear it is nice and springlike there too so it is a perfect table!

Love your green glasses and what really caught my eye is your clock (I have the very same and never thought to incorporate it into a tablesetting) Very pretty and inviting!

Oh, yet. Those glasses are cool! I would never have guessed. My eyes went right to them. I like the Christmas/Spring napkins too.

Joni!
I love all the shades of green! I really like your placemats too...with all the texture on them. The napkin rings look so nice Around those napkins. I have sold out of all my napkin rings now...so sad :( but now I have other odds and ends for sale on my blog.

Hope you are enjoying a nice sunny day today.
