Details:  Mismatched dishes in creams and whites - some with gold and others with silver detailing on the edges.  Chocolate, creams, whites and Robins egg blue were my tables colors.
The centerpiece is a rusty seat from an old farm truck.  The rusty springs fit into my theme!  I filled the center spring with birch branches from our backyard which had just very recently budded.
Clear juice glasses found at the thrift store filled with water held flowers and the branches.  The moss roll gave the table some spring green freshness.
Heres a visual from the chair looking up at the centerpiece.  Love the natural element the branches bring to the table.
Various old door knobs filled with water and a single flower stem topped the salad plate.  I do believe this idea was Ms. Whitneys?  :)
I chose a nice bed of moss for each door knob to rest on.
On top of each dinner plate was a sheet of music relating to spring...
Ive used them before in tablescapes: metal cow tags tied to the glass stems added a bit of whimsy.  Love em!
I used my favorite paisley table cloth under the dishes.  And, I even managed to sew together three light beige canvas panels to make the main tablecloth.  Now, I do NOT sew, so this was quite an accomplishment for me!

The hospital auxiliary in my community held a fund raising tablescape last Saturday and I decorated a table for this fun event.  The seats to 18 decorated tables were sold to ladies of all ages to enjoy a lunch this past Mother's Day weekend.  The funds raised will be used to help purchase ambulance medical monitoring equipment.
