Anticipating Spring with Blue-White, Fruits & Flowers

Hello sweet friends !

I've been having some wonderful visits and guests at home. My daughter from Madrid, her husband and Maxima four and baby Leonela 4 months old are here and so was my daughter Sofia, Victoria 15 and Cayetana 13, the teenagers... plus baby Alonso 1 and 3 months old.  So you can just imagine !

I haven't been able to look at my blog one day till now that daughter Sofia went back home with her brood, lol...

My dear mom is doing better and last year she gave me these pretty blue and white placemats she had and never used. So they inspired me to make an 'anticipated blue and white Spring tablescape.' 

Wishing you all dear friends very safe days ahead,  what with this "Corona Virus" situation around the world, all we can do is pray for all of us and our families, as well as the rest of the world and the countries most affected.

May God bless us all !

I arranged this table with my Blue Danube-Onion china, Hutschenreuther in blue and white, because of the blue and white placemats mother gifted me.

As I explained at the beginning of this little post, that my sweet mom gave me this beautiful blue and white placemats for six place setting, therefore this table is arranged for six as well.
Last December mother was 90 and while I was taking out a tablecloth for her luncheon, I came across the placemats to which I said how pretty they were. Mother without hesitation just gave them to me and claimed she will never use anything like that anymore. 

The salad bowl that belongs to my Onion china, hubby's favorite china and one of my fav as well.

Here you can appreciate the lovely blue and white placemats that were my inspiration for this "anticipated Spring table."

The two tier piece with the fruit is Meissen. One of my precious things I own.

I brought out the cute napkin rings because of the butterflies for the blue Spring setting.

I also arranged one of the buffets in pink tones for Spring too.

I'm loving my two gold faceted bunnies, gift of my best friend last Christmas.

We always need a coffee station for after dinner.

I arranged the coffee setting in this particular corner since it is all blue and white wall plates and big planter.

With that said. I'm so happy to have made this table, I was so enthused been that I love tablescaping and it's accessories.

Wishing you all dear friends very safe days ahead,  what with this "Corona Virus" situation around all the world, all we can do is pray for all of us and our families, as well as the rest of the world and the countries most affected.

Thank you dear friends for your kind comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for your great parties.
