Set a Spring Table
A table set beneath the blooming branches of a pink saucer magnolia tree honors the season with a tableau. Flower-shaped salad plates that resemble the blooms above look lovely. Contrasting dinner plates add extra color—we used emerald green—and a vintage touch, such as hobnail tumblers in jadeite-green milk glass, lends an air of eclectic romance to the scene. Bring in sunshine shades with yellow printed napkins and fresh-clipped tulips from the yard, and the simple setting is complete.
