Waiting for Spring........




Spring...what does spring mean to you?
For me, spring marks then end of my deep winter sleep! A time to come of out hibernation. I get itchy to leave the confines of the house and move into our outdoor living space. My tastebuds are ready for bbq´s and sipping my favorite vino on the patio.
Unfortunately....mother nature does not share my views as she is letting us wait and is sharing with us cold and rain instead of blue skies and sunshine. So, to make that wait not seem so long, I have brought spring into our indoor living space, by creating a spring tablescape. I am very honored to share this tablescape with Chloe Crabtreechloe
Chloe contacted me recently and asked if I would like to take part in a Spring Tablescape Blog Hop! Of course I said yes! I can´t wait to see what the other bloggers have created.
 



One of the perks of living in Germany? Flowers are very inexpensive. I can get 2 bunches of tulips at the grocery store for less than 5 Euros!


Back in January, I was in Cloppenburg visiting family and managed a stop at one of my favorite stores there....Depot The Outlet Store.. OMG....I could go crazy there everytime! My Spring sign as well as the little bird and table runner come from Depot.




Another one of my favorite stores is ACTION...a dutch based company. Until recently I could only enjoy this store when I was in Cloppenburg, but now Berlin has  one too! That is where I purchased the candlestick holder that you see in the picture above...(i regret not buying two!)




My yellow charger plates are from Ikea!


THe napkin rings are from my sister Heidi


THe wine glasses were a gift from a my friends Irene and Chris


I always try to have some edible decorations on the table..... Found these cute chocolates at TJ Maxx

 

Happy Spring Everyone!

  4. Nicki, I love your spring display on the table. Wow, great price for the flower bunches (tulips and daffs = spring!). Great finds from your Depot, and those chargers from Ikea are the perfect color yellow. I have a set from Fiesta that I find very versatile in tablescaping. I gotta tell you though....it's those napkin rings that are making my collecting heart go pitter patter - they're terrific!
    It's so nice to make your acquaintance on this blog hop. Happy Spring!

  9. Such a pretty table for Spring! I love your SPRING word! How fun that is! How fortunate it is that you can pick up fresh flowers for a good price! I didn't see a lot of fresh flowers when I visited my daughter in Germany. Setting a table with treasured items from friends is so nice, isn't it? Thank you so much for being a part of the blog hop!

  21. If you have a minute, I’d really appreciate it if you took a look at Emily’s Virtual Rocket. This is a serious newsblog which has been taken from e-newspapers and e-magazines from around the world, with an emphasis on transgender issues. Also, with his election, I look for articles which critique Donald Trump.
