April Cornell's Edging Us Toward Spring


This April Cornell tablecloth is just begging spring to arrive a little early. I know there is more than enough time for lots more winter, even though our temperature is supposed to be in the mid 70s today. I just hope Mother Nature isn't cruel enough to let the lilacs bud out and then drop the temperatures down below zero! She has been pretty fickle the last few years so who knows what she has up her sleeve for this year.



With the bright yellow and pink tablecloth, I added a solid pink napkin held with a striped napkin holder.



The plate stack is very simple, all Bordallo cabbage plates, starting with  the white wood chargers from Pier One, pink chargers, white dinner plates and a pink cabbage leaf salad plate.




The glassware is a pale pink tulip stem, that I think is probably Libbey.


Oneida Louisiana was the choice for flatware.







Thank you for visiting today. I hope you will return next time.

I will join Dish It/Rustic & Refined.

I love April Cornell! There was a flagship store in Burlington, VT where I would always have to stop when I went to visit my daughter - I always came out with some goodies!

I don't like February but really like tablescapes that get posted in February. This one makes me think of the waitress at the diner we frequent. She showed me pictures of walls she painted red and yellow in her kitchen. bbb

This is definitely springy. I love how you mix colors and patterns in ways I'd never think of and they come out fabulous. Love love love the tulips - perfect color. I must get out some of my cabbage dishes and do a table soon. As soon as I get over this nasty cold. Thanks so much for the book on folding napkins - I'm going to have some great fun.

What a refreshing glimpse of upcoming Spring, Marigene...it can't arrive soon enough for me!
LOVE your all your pinks esp. those Bordallo cabbage plates.
JoAnn's big headquarters nearby was carrying April Cornell fabrics last year & I intended to make up a few tablecloths but forgot all about it...for obvious reasons. Maybe I'll find some pretty ones like yours this year. Thanks for the inspiration!

Marigene,
Oh, dear friend, it has been Spring~like on my side of the Prairie for a week now!
Perfect timing for your April Cornell tablescape!
Those pink tulips are absolutely beautiful!
Fondly,

So pretty, Marigene! The layers of plates are beautiful! I should start spring tables too cause it's definitely spring here. It's been sunny and in the 70's here this week...Christine

Oh Marigene, your collection of Bordallo cabbage plates is the best! You just know the right ones to pick that coordinate perfectly with you gorgeous tablecloths. It must be like a breath of springtime every time you walk by your table. The tulips and chunky candles look so pretty as your centerpiece.

Christine Graves said...

Pink, I am obsessed with pink color right now...I don't know if it is a "Spring is coming" thing or the color just makes me feel so happy. Your table is stunning Marigene! Also your white chargers remind me I need to hit up Pier 1 and grab a couple more. Thanks so much for joining the Dishing It & Digging it Link Party and I hope it brings you some new friends!

Love the pink and white cabbage. April Cornell always has beautiful pieces, I have several but am loving yours. I'm ready for some pink in my life.

I love the tablecloth. You added so well to it with the dishes and whole tables cape. Love the pink tulips! Very nice!

Beautiful bright table! I'm ready for spring, too, but in Missouri we can have snow on Monday and 60 degrees on Thursday so spring may not be here for awhile.

Pattie @ Olla-Podrida said...

Beautiful, spring-y, and gorgeous. Oh, how I miss the April Cornell store that used to be here.

Good Evening Marigene,

I think this is one of the prettiest tablecloths I have ever seen.
These colors are nearly mesmerizing and they most certainly brighten up early Spring days.
A beautiful table setting and oh the tulips...pure magic.

I am wondering if you will be using this cloth for your Easter table?

What a BEAUTIFUL post and tablecloth. A happy way to start my day. Thank you.

SavoringTime in the Kitchen said...

I love those vibrant colors, Marigene! It won't be long before we see tulips popping up here (I hope!).

Linda @ Life and Linda said...

Such a beautiful table. You are so right, these colors belong together. A very happy table with beautiful accessories. Love all of your collections. I adore the tablecloth.....Have a wonderful weekend.

With those pink tulips on your colorfully set table, how could spring resist coming a little early to your area.

Monica @ Texas Fiesta Ware Fan said...

Gorgeous! I can see my Fiesta with that cloth! Hope the weather improves!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

This is truly one of my favorite color combinations! I also adore April Cornell. HomeGoods currently has a blue/aqua color palette and I am tempted.
Make sure you link this gem up tomorrow on Thoughts of Home on Thursday. :)

Love love love! April Cornell linens have always been among my favorite. Again I'll say, you've got it going on with the beautiful colors and dishware.

Thank you again for being part of Thoughts of Home on Thursday. :)

Well, after seeing your beautiful table I guess I will have to set one! I haven't been on Sweetladyelaine's in a long time. It just doesn't feel right. We are selling our house and moving to Greenville-Spartanburg area of SC. I know once I get settled I'll be back blogging again. I guess I just need some me time. Love your table and I am missing everyone!
