In a garden clearing besprinkled with petals, set the scene for an afternoon gathering in the fragrant spring air.
A gossamer-blue pastoral print tablecloth captures the essence of spring. Lavender napkins intermingle with sister shades of violet and lilac, echoing the profusion of blooms all around.
Artichoke flower vases nod to the verdure of the season. Pair cream dinner plates with ivory-handled flatware to lend a refined ambiance to the bucolic setting.
For a fetching centerpiece, tuck irises, tulips, and other seasonal blossoms into egg cups and small cream pitchers, then stack them on scalloped cake plates. Chair aprons of crocheted-edge napkins secured with blue ribbon add charm to this gathering in the glade.
