Easter is here to celebrate:)

     Bunnies and eggs are symbol of Easter and this table renders a Easter look with them along with a Bird's nest recipe. Bunny lays, decorates and hides eggs.

Table with Spring Beauties:)

As we navigate through Season Spring , this by far , is the best time of the year. We wonder and thank God for bathing the nature with colorful flowers. Taking inspiration from nature to set pretty setting with flowers, plants, animal/bird figurines, place mats, table linens and patterns creates a statement for upcoming Spring/Summer parties. Everyone love the colors of Spring/Summer and we often end up to marry White, Red or Off white, Red which is stunning tonal combination for color team. The different varieties/colors of Plumeria flowers are best at this time of the year in our part of world. Rare to miss it's beauty wherever it blooms.  A setting near the window with Plumeria flower stem says it all.

Tea with Pretty White Flowers;)

As the charming Spring is here it is time to bring in flower power. Flowers are beautiful for decors, gifting and for many other things. Sometimes you don't need shop bought expensive flowers in vases to adorn a tea setting or a table setting. Flowers could be in our garden, back yard sometime in foot path, free ways, on the rocks in the woods and it is all around every where. It is only we have the eye to find the natures beauty, say hello to the winking flowers and bring them home.
Couple of pretty fresh carrot flowers from our garden with the serene white tea set turned the evening nook a ideal cool off nook for a evening tea. A egg shell candle added charm and in a recycled bottle the pretty white flowers looked simple yet pretty. The tiny sand paper vine purple flowers sprinkled over the white napkins and on the rough wooden surface looked pleasing.
