Tablescape Thursday

Today I am posting pictures from last year's "Spring Fling", our women's group from church.


I made these "napkin thingys" out of scrapbook paper. I found the pattern online, and cut them all out, made the little bows. I had found a stamp at Michael's in their Dollar Bins that said Spring Fling, so I stamped it onto the green round and glued them to the fronts.

I got these topiaries at Joann's after Easter for 60% off. They had purple eggs, so I painted them pink and added in some pink and green flowers to match the color scheme.

I bought these boxes at the 99 Cent Store, wrapped them in decorative paper and glued them on top of each other with ribbon and a little bird's nest at the top. They flanked the food table.

Here's the buffet table:


I also made this cute little cake with a bird's nest on top:

This coming Saturday, our women's group is having a "Springtime" Brunch, again with a pink & green color scheme. However, the tablescapes and other decor will be quite different, so I'll post it next week for Tablescape Thursday.
For more yummy tablescapes, be sure to stop by Susan's, at Between Naps On The Porch.

Everything went really well together. The table settings and other decorations really set the tone so I can assume the "Spring Fling" was a great time. Can't wait to see the set up of the next church party.
