Spring has Sprung?

Spring is taking its time outside, but inside the house, it does look like spring! I found a funky striped table cloth last week and put my posy runner on the table...colours matched quite nicely. I bought a fresh pineapple on Saturday evening and on a whim put it on the table runner...looked cool! Problem is, if I want to keep this look, I'll have to either eat a lot of pineapple or find a realistic artificial one :-). My husband set the table for breakfast this morning with these colourful dishes to complete the spring look. Unfortunately, by the time I thought of taking a picture, the orange juice was finished!

This is how I had the runner placed at first, but I like it on an angle better. This is an unusual tablecloth as the stripes run the width of the table.

I also found a couple artificial plants that look very realistic on Thursday, which adds a nice splash of colour to my living room. It's too dark there to have real plants survive. Now to find a pineapple that looks this real!

OK spring....we're ready :-)!!!

Jacqui, It maybe a little cold for this now, but the next time you grill outdoors. Take a pineapple, peel it, slice it leaving the core in. Drizzle a little honey mixed with lime juice over both sides. Grill it over medium coals until a little brown. OMG Delicious! We do it all summer long.

That is a great tablecloth! I like your new potted plants... and I'm afraid that is the kind we need in our home too....
We have a forsythia wreath on the front door, and my Peeps table runner on the dining room table, but now that the Easter things have been put away, it doesn't look as much like spring as it did last week. Thanks for the inspiration!
