Springing up the Dining Room

That's right...it's been so unseasonably warm here, I've actually got myself 
believing that Spring is just around the corner.  With that in mind, I was inspired to add a 
little Spring to my dining room and lighten it up.  
As with so many of my decorating projects, it all began with a trip to Home Goods.  I found a tablecloth, runner and napkins in colors and in a pattern that I just loved.
The napkins will be pillows in the near future.

I started by adding a "runner" to my dining room table.
I created this runner using a tablecloth folded in thirds the long way 
and then I just pleated it at the head of the table on both ends.
  I added the real runner to my buffet. 
I just adore these colors.
Here is one side of the buffet...
here is the other side.
On the table I used two matching Lenox vases I had and filled them with my favorite flower...the hydrangea...even if they are faux.
The centerpiece is simply a cake stand with a ceramic basket with eggs in blue and green.

Can't wait to hear what you think of my little update.  I always love and appreciate your comments.

Have a great day!
-Judy

Your dining room is so pretty and Spring looking. Ah, Spring! Can't wait. Spring, everything starts to wake up, and we have a whole season (hopefully), of warmth, stretched out before us to enjoy! Can you tell I'm not so much a Winter person, lol!

Love it, Judy! I love your lamps and those prints, too, over your buffet. Is it okay to bring the eggs out? : ) I have a bunch I must buy everytime I see them on sale, forgetting the ones I already have at home. I think they will fit in my now empty apothecary jar {since I dumped out my dollar store plastic hearts}. I'm doing that today!

The weather here goes back and forth from cold to Spring-like, but as long as the sun is out, I'm happy!

Looks wonderful in the room, although I'm not quite ready for spring yet. We need a little more winter here first.

Judy, your dining room looks so pretty! I am in Spring mode, as well. The hydrangeas are my faves. I get them at my local grocery story year round. I have white ones all around the house.

I love the look of Spring too, your dining room definitely looks like spring is on its way. Very pretty runner, love the closeup of it, so I can see the pattern and colors. I think the eggs add a soft touch too. Great job, Judy.

Love your diningroom. The flowers and the colors are so pretty. Great!

Love the new look! I guess it is the time year for "Spring Fever." Clever to use the tablecloth as a runner, & then be able to use it as a full cloth when needed. Adore that little ceramic basket.
