Waiting on Spring

We are excited for SPRING at our house.
The first day of SPRING is just 34 days away,
and we can't wait!

Fun find -- Oversized carrots placed over the stove.
White bunnies are always a favorite.

Favorite SPRING dishes are coming out this week!

These Pip Studio dishes are some of my favorites for SPRING and Mother's Day.

When it comes to dishes, Christmas patterns are my downfall.
Spring dishes are a close second! 
I love pastels, and flowers, and bunnies, and SPRING!

These are some of our favorites from the past few years.
{I always look for them on sale, and tend to buy the smaller salad plates 
to mix-and-match with what I already have.}

Left {bottom} to right {top}:
Pottery Barn -- Flora salad plates {The Flora dinner plates are also beautiful.} 
Williams-Sonoma -- Spring Garden salad plates {bought this year}
Williams-Sonoma -- Happy Easter glass {to my knowledge no longer available} 
Pier One - Easter Bunny Faces {These are available again this year -- these sell out fast!}
Williams-Sonoma -- Damask Easter Bunny salad plates {bought last year after Easter sale}

Family Sweetheart Dinner 2016

My two littles found a heart-napkin folding tutorial 
and then created them for our Family Sweetheart Dinner.
{They know my love language!}

I love the blog Between Naps on the Porch --
Susan is always using a fun rabbit/basket in her table decor.
A few weeks ago I saw that Williams-Sonoma had something similar,
and I picked it up for Easter/Spring -- 
We took it out today and used it for the first time at our Family Sweetheart Dinner. 
Pete is so sweet to get the girls flowers for Valentine's Day.
{Their roses are in the basket.}

Happy Heart Day!

Sweetheart Eve

This was our Sweetheart Family Dinner from 2013.

Looking forward to Valentine's Day tomorrow.
{It falls on Sunday this year -- which is perfect!}
I'm trying to decide how to decorate the table, 
so I pulled up a few photos from past celebrations.

{I used a favorite quilt for our tablecloth in 2013.}

Our table in 2015 -- Spanish conversation hearts 
{Found especially for the 2 Spanish speakers in our home.}

Happy Sweetheart Eve!
