Welcome to Red Couch Recipes and Tablescape Thursday. I am also posting this to Jam Hand's new blog party Hump Day Hoorah.
In Spring, the lovely color green surprises and delights us after the dull colors of fall and winter.
I love this shade of green; I think I have three shirts of this color. The little feetie egg cups were found at a local grocery store years ago; I have five different feetie cups.
After a long hard winter, green is so soothing. My Aunt Ionia used to take us to the restaurant Spring Green, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright near Spring Green, Wisconsin. The two words, spring and green, fit so well together. The restaurant is no longer in business, but the building is the Frank Lloyd Wright Center.
I made the green yarn balls for my "Grinch Tablescape" last December. I love the green pop they add to the table.
Here's a photograph of my stack! My engineer husband, orderly and efficient, is not fond of dish stacks; in his mind just more dishes to wash. However, my sister Jacqueline, Purple Chocolat Home, loves dish stacks and so graciously gave me the white chargers and white salad plates a few months ago.
This is their debut; white dishes are very dreamy. Thanks Jacqueline! I know I will use them often!
Here's a side view.
My centerpiece is a topiary flanked by faux chocolate bunnies. "Hey little fella, stop nibbling on the topiary!"
We used to make these yarn balls when I was a child. All you need is yarn, paper mache paste, and a balloon. Blow up balloons in varying sizes. For the paper mache paste, add 3 parts water to 2 parts flour in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil, making sure to get out any lumps. Cool and then drag the yarn through the paste and apply to balloon. If you want to add some glitz, sprinkle with glue, before drying and shake off excess glue. My home was shining around Christmas when I made these; there was glitter all over! Let dry from 24 to 48 hours. When dry, pop the balloon and pull through yarn holes.
Here's my bubble glass view.
Thanks for stopping by my Spring Green Table!
