Adding Spring Accents to the Breakfast Table

Happy Friday, everyone! Do you have exciting plans for the weekend? I finally got around to setting our Spring breakfast table. Since our home is heavily Tuscan-influenced with rich, warm tones...bright pastels just really don't work. So, for Spring, I try to stick with more muted pastels and neutral tones.  Essentially, the table is very simple. I used our everyday linens, dinnerware, crystal and silver, with the addition of a few seasonal pieces.

As you know, I am huge fan of the seasonal dinnerware at Williams-Sonoma, and this set of four dessert plates stole my heart...

These plates are from their 'Bunny Botanical' collection. Each plate is vintage-inspired and features a different bunny and botanical pattern.

At each place setting, I placed these crystal dessert cups that were a thrift find last year. I think I got 6 of them, for about 59¢ each.

I simply added some green moss that I already had, along with these eggs, also from Williams-Sonoma. They are actually ornaments, with the strings tucked into the moss.

The centerpiece is nothing more than a few hydrangeas and artichokes, with more of the easter egg ornaments tucked in...

The centerpiece sits in a wicker tray, also from Williams-Sonoma; and holds a scattering of eggs, surrounded by a bunny, birds, and a nest that I purchased at Pier One last year.

Finally, I finished everything off with some botanical napkins that I also purchased at Williams-Sonoma last year.  

Each one is accented with some new napkin rings from Pottery Barn. They are antiqued silver, with the "Family and Friends" quote.

Did you detect a theme here? I love using tabletop items from Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn. They are so interchangeable; and often, you can transition the pieces from one season to another, by simply switching out your decorative accessories.

So, that's our Spring breakfast table! I hope you have enjoyed your visit here today. Thanks so much for stopping by; 
and I wish you a "Happy Spring"!
