Come sit with me for awhile and see what I’m bringing to the table…

Each season brings its own brand of excitement, and with this excitement comes its very own color palette.

A soft leaf-patterned sage-on-sage table linen sets the perfect stage for my strutting rabbit trumpeter candle holders, as seen in the first photo here.  As the candles are lit, a magic sweeps across the table revealing flowers that seem to spring up everywhere. 

Dishes are colored the warmth of sage, with a blush of pink, a vibrant yellow as warming as a morning sun, all the while being kissed by the depth of turquoise found in the Aegean sea. 

Now add dashes of shimmering white found on the beaches of Fiji, dashes of red like the hot sun slowly setting over the horizon, sprinkled ever so slightly, leaving behind promises of yet another brilliant day of spring.

Ahhh … better … I know, it’s not so bright and perky in your face, A little bit of the deeper earth tones still lingering from winter. A vintage quilt for the table, topped off with a tartan plaid throw for color and effect. Yes, yes, I plead guilty for throwing in pops of lime and sherbet. Oh please — you will be fine.

Consider this an introductory gift to get you ready for daylight savings, which begins Sunday March 12. I personally am ready-eddy.
