Pussywillows & Butterflies

Nothing says spring quite like pussywillows & butterflies.
Since the pussywillows are almost finished here for the year
I thought I would do a tablescape with them
before they are gone until next year.

I started with a crochet doilie that was given to me by my neighbor.
She does fabulous work.

I then added a floral centerpiece that I have had for quite a few years.

And added some pussywillow and pink spring bud stems
that I bought at the Dollarstore a few years ago.

Onto the stems I added these delicate butterflies
that I also bought from the Dollarstore.

I then added a butterfly napkin...

And a spring napkin ring in a delicate pale pink.

Some ornamental birds
(which I found on a clearance sale at Michaels)

And some from Pier 1 Imports,

They add a finishing touch to the table...

As they nestle around the branches.

An egg holder makes a wonderful tea light holder

And complements the place setting

And makes a pretty spring table for two.
