we have lots of random fruit trees, plants with climbing vines and crazy rose bushes. they're overlooked most of the time, but i've been making more of an effort to incorporate some of it into our home and spend less at the store on the same kinds of things.
i thought i would bring the pattern mixing to the table with placemats and plates that had similar colors but bold pattern. kumquats turned into place card holders, giant leaves from the fig tree decorated the plates and full roses were scattered to fill in empty space. i never feel like a table is complete without a little greenery or floral touch.
i really love how the mix of of black with the bright colors kept everything from looking too feminine! so, how is everyone else decorating the table for spring?
