Where Are The Birds?

I've been using a lot of birds in my tablescapes lately. They are my new obsession! It seems like I can't leave a store without buying at least one. Well, I don't like to be predictable, so this week it's butterflies!

I hope you enjoy!

This tablescape started with the placemats,
which I bought at HomeGoods months ago.

I found this tray, which was made in Italy, at a thrift store. I just fell in love with it, which means you may see it quite often!

I decided to go non-traditional by using square plates and bowls. Just mixing it up to keep it interesting!

I just love the detail on these blue plates!

The butterflies came from Michael's wedding department. I wanted them to stand out against the topiary. I'm such a sucker for sparkle!

Thanks for visiting! I hope you have a great week!

Love your butterfly table! That tray is so pretty and versatile but those blue dishes are so sweet too. I really love the square placemats, didn't see them around here or they would have come home with me!

It is beautiful! I also love birds and have to fight the urge to buy them all up lol...

I love these two colors together as well and those placemats are so pretty.
I agree with you, those little butterfly's certainly do "pop" on your topiary.

Have a wonderful day!
