Birds in a Nest Tablescape

Spring seems to finally have sprung, and with it has come green shoots of plants, strong winds, and birds. Lots and lots of birds.

It’s time for a tablescape with a birdy theme, and I’ve been collecting just the accessories to create it!
GotMyReservations Birds in a Nest Intro

My father was a woodworker, and I have a collection of his carved eggs. They were the first inspiration for my birdy theme.

Since the eggs are all created from solid wood and veneers, they are not the traditional spring pastel colors and add interest to the tablescape.

I gave each place setting a nest for the egg in a Japanese lotus bowl with Spanish moss. The “nest” placemats were on the sale table at Bed Bath and Beyond for 50 cents each. The china is Four Crown Claridge from my mother’s collection, and the robin’s egg blue glass salad plates are from my stash.

The table runner and napkins are neutral in beige and tan and continue the natural theme. Only the birds bring bright color to the linens. This set by Threshold was on sale at Target for half-price, and also has a matching tablecloth. I found the beige china napkin rings in a resale shop earlier this year.

I couldn’t resist using the blue Ball jars for drinks and to give the table a little extra texture, I put the flatware in the jars.

You’ve probably seen the crackled turquoise vase and bird in stores near you — they’re everywhere this year. I found mine at Tuesday Morning and snapped them up because they were such a lovely match to the birds in the linens. With some faux blossoms, I had a beautiful table on which to serve my weekend guests.

I’m linking up today with the creative bloggers at History and Home Link Party at We Call It Junkin’, Cuisine Kathleen’s Let’s Dish partyTablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch, and Seasonal Sundays at The Tablescaper. Be sure to stop by and say, “Hello!”

  1. I love the table linens and the Pretty blue birds. The blues, beige, and the whites are a soothing combination of colors. They all look wonderful together and the dark brown of the place mats and the eggs offer a lovey natural look to the table. Have a wonderful weekend……… Candy

  2. I love your “birdie table”! I love your neutral colors that complement your turquoise accents so well!! Your Dad’s wooden eggs are lovely. Such a happy table for spring! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch

  3. Awwwwww…..that is so sweet that you have that egg collection! It’s cool that your Dad would make those. Men are usually hinky about what might be considered “feminine decor.” I love it that he just knocked ‘em on out!

    The colors on your table are so vibrant! Just what the doctor ordered to get us out of these on-again-off-again Winter blues and into Spring-is-here blues!

    I’ve not seen that crackled vase anywhere around here this season. It’s really pretty, and I like the way you have the flowers arranged in it.

    I hope you are enjoying the weekend! Take care of yourself!

  4. What a treasure your father’s carved eggs are! Isn’t it fun to start out with one item and create a theme and make it your own! I love love your aqua on your table and how clever to put the silverware in the Ball jars. Your chargers were a great find too.

    Thanks for your visit. I see some posts on your sidebar I want to explore.

  5. Your blue is beautiful! I like how you placed the flatware in the Ball jars. Your birds on the tablecloth are a nice, subtle surprise.
