A very small Spring tablescape

I was not going to do a tablescape for Spring this year, but
I finally had a little time to myself today and I thought, why not?

I did not want to spend any money on this, so I used 
what I had around the house.

Nothing spectacular, just a little inspiration so you can see
we can create pretty things with what we already have.

Instead of a tablecloth, I used a Spring table runner
I bought at Homegoods a long while ago. 
I borrowed it from the dresser in my bedroom! :)

The napkins I made myself from leftover material
from some pillows I have been making for my back porch.

 I layered them with some lace

 And tied them up with some blue and white ribbon

 The white plates, I bought after Christmas also at Homegoods for $1.00 each.
There was only four left, so they came home with me!

The small blue plates I purchased at Kirklands last month.
I also bought four of them.
I had a $15.00 coupon and they were $3.00 each, so they were really free.
I love the design!

 These water glasses I had for over twenty years.
I bought them when we were stationed overseas and I always like to use them for Easter because the design looks like little Easter eggs engraved on them.

For the center of the table, I used  a topiary I bought months ago and 
my favorite crystal basket with my old blue birds.

As you can see, nothing fancy, but I cooked a nice dinner and we will sit down and 
enjoy it as soon as my family gets home.

I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend. 
We have a couple of projects to finish, but, otherwise, we just plan to enjoy the nice 
80 degree weather we are having.
Thank you all for visiting!

    I think the best finds happen when you're not looking. I was at HomeGoods and Kirklands last weekend hoping to find deals on plates - struck out. Of course, I DID find a few nice things! Have a great weekend!
