A Springtime Tabletop of Black & Green Design

I took another day to myself after our long weekend, so today I share with you Marianne's blog Country Glamour Home. She is one sharp cookie and I love this Springtime table of black and green design. What a great look for a ladies al fresco luncheon. Enjoy!

While browsing the isles of Marshalls, my favorite store, I came across these awesome zebra print plates and knew I just had to have them.  But the question was, what do I do with about a lovely tablescape!
So off to my porch I went with to create this lovely black and green design.
I purchased these  round lime green placemats at Marshall's along with the green salad plates. 
From my garden I cut beautiful white hydrangea's and magnolia leaves to create a summery bouquet which I arranged in my favorite white ironstone vase. 
The tablescape wouldn't be complete without the company of 
one of my rooster's.....isn't he just lovely!
For the tablecloth I used a painters tarp that I had laying around.  
The lime polka dot tea towels are from Quilters Studio which were 
inexpensive at $2.69 each. 
To add some additional interest to this table I placed some of my pears here and there around each place setting. 

Wasn't it a beautiful table where you could see yourself spending time visiting with friends? A wonderful meal, a gentle Spring breeze and good just really doesn't get any better than that! Clean off your porch, set up a table, do bit of decorating and cooking and call your friends. They will come running and fun will be had by all!
