Spring Table Blues are gone!

 Hospital Volunteer Thank you Luncheon

First: Thank you everyone who so generously took the time to offer suggestions for the tablescape improvement. I printed each one and worked the table with them until I finally ended with this...I really loved all the ideas and as you can see, used most of them! 


I added the suggestion of vines and flowers, now everyone has something to look at.


BEFORE:
Note how plain it is? What can I do?


After your suggestions:


The table: 
Mikasa French Countryside 
 Inexpensive hand painted water glasses



Gazing balls were placed in the center with a message that today love is reflected in each them.   The Bunny stopped by and left jelly beans discretely, giving everyone a chuckle. Handmade " tweeties" were a take away for each of them.

I found this tiny milk glass bunny last weekend in Amish country. In the background,  a cd of bird songs is playing softly .



I added the suggestion of vines and flowers, now everyone has something to look at.

Mixing chairs was necessary, but looks fine.




Night time with candles lit. Another view of the layered table cloths a bit easier in this light.  The bottom is a flat twin sheet and the top  is a an inexpensive sheer striped curtain fabric remnant found in a bin at a fabric shop. Really helps bring up the blues.


The menu : 
Mixed Greens with sliced strawberries and Poppyseed Dressing
Roasted Chicken Salad mini croissants
Lemon Pound Cake w/Strawberry Sauce
Fruity wines
