Seattle is lovely right now. It may still be grey out, but my garden beds are bursting with green shoots. And the green buds on all of my Spring bulbs are finally starting to show their buds. The gobs of daffodil bulbs that I planted when I was in the last months of my pregnancy with Coco have survived the squirrels, and are blooming for their second year in a row! The daffodils are my favorite Spring flower. As they continue to roll in, I will be posting more arrangements.
We had some of our dearest friends over for brunch on Sunday, and I thought it fitting to decorate the table for our close, (but still elusive!) Spring. I let the colors outside guide my table using bright green and yellow with tiny hits of pink.
The children sat in the kitchen, (I am still a big fan of the “kids table”!) so I felt like I could roll out some more elaborate tableware. However, it is all very casual stuff, just layered in a way to make it feel a little more special.
I also let the colors influence the food. It made for a visually exciting table!
