The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

Fine Feathered Dining!

Welcome to Fine Feathered Dining . . .
                                                  On Crooked Creek!


This Spring ~ I went, totally, out of my comfort zone ~ and stagged this fine feathered tablescape for our dining pleasure On Crooked Creek. A tribute to our fine feathered friends.


Instead of my usual reds, golds and greens;
                                    I used this years aquas, browns and creams!



I purchased this cream hued tablecloth right after Christmas. I knew it would be the perfect background for my salad/dessert plates featuring a single bluebird perched on a raised tree  branch.



The brown, quilted, scalloped placemats and aqua napkins were a great find while out thrift shopping at my favorite discount outlet store.




My Homer Laughlin Epicure Collection in Turquoise Blue continues to thrill me! Here I've used the dinner plates along with cup and saucer.



The bee stemware adds to the whimisical Nature theme. A new addition is the cream hued bowl with raised bird nest.


The crystal etched vase holds faux blooming branches. I adore how it reflecks the outdoor sunshine! A trio of ivory birds on pedestal perches give movement and interest.





Dotsie @ Podso gifted me with this saucer that matches my accent Gold Crown Lifetime China Co. Aqua China. I appreciate her thinking of me! Dotsie. . .I just had to incorporate this saucer into the tablescape!!!

So~



I added some efferescent faux grass and faux eggs.
                                             Then I palced a soft Spring wreath on top.



I nestled this at the base of the birds to add softness to the table.



I stacked my scalloped green dinner plates onto my two ~ tier plate stand with two of my favorite cream colored serving bowls. Totaly smitten with the leaf pattern, my heart was all a flutter when I found them at a local half~priced store!



This wicker basket, much like other stationary pieces On Crooked Creek, changes with the seasons. Faux tree branches, just beginning to bud, gently holds this faux birds nest. I adore its tin can rustic features. Another connection to our fine feathered friends.




Dining for two. . .
