Sweet and Simple

Hey my friends!

As I was shopping at the grocery store today, I saw this little bundle of daisies
smiling at me :)
So they jumped in my basket, and I brought them home for my table.

I've been itching for some outside garden time lately,
as this winter gets old fast.
Some fresh flowers can make a girl feel better!

Of course, I could not help notice how the fresh fruits "matched" my flowers.
So, I went to work creating a little tablescape.

I filled my vintage bottle with a sparkling pink punch.
Then added cherries and lemon slices.

Wouldn't this be a fun table for hors d oeuvres and finger sandwiches?
A few girlfriends getting together to catch up and share stories...

Maybe even a sweet little Valentine's Day Brunch?

My red-striped grainsack tablerunner fits right in.

The little cups and plates came from my mom.

A very sweet, but simple flower.

Doesn't this make you wish for Spring?

I say, bring it on!

Are you ready for Spring?

I wanted to say Thanks to all of you who sent me good wishes about 
opening my online shop.  
You are such sweet, encouraging friends, and I appreciate you so much :)

Thanks for hosting, ladies :)

I am a friend of Anne's and just found your website thanks to her feature of BofB! What a lovely blog you have here! And you are a Believer - wonderful!!! I am off to check out your gardens!!!

How sweet this table looks. I love your flowers in that wire holder. So pretty.

I actually got lovely white flowers today also. I have been under the weather all day and my husband got me a bouquet of flowers. He knows I love white flowers so he did great. Cheered me up greatly.

My daughter got me a bag of peanut M&M's. Tasty but not what I needed when I am working out and trying to lose a little weight. Sweet girl thinking of her mama's sweet tooth.

Well Becky, does seem that great minds think alike. My flowers just about jumped into my basket too. Isn't funny how a few flowers can make you feel a little better? :)

Tricia @ Vintage No. 35 said...

Isn't it amazing how flowers can brighten our day? I was tempted to buy tulips this week.

All That Jazz said...

I love this Becky- the touches of yellow are so fun! I am hosting a girly gathering next month so this is giving me some great, great ideas!! ;-)
p.s. I have faux tulips in my place right now but I really need to get some fresh ones! And those daisies are my fave (I love the wild ones that grow around here in the summer, can't recall their real name......)

Bella said...

Kristin @ My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia said...

Hi Becky-
The flowers are so pretty!
We have had such a tease of summer here and my flowers are starting to bloom, I know it won't be long before the rain comes again. makes me want to garden..Looking at your table is hoping for the sun to stay a little longer.
i love your clay tags :)

Miss Gracie's House said... , so ready...these gray skies are starting to get to me...I think I need to go buy some fresh lemons, too...great table...I want to come to brunch! Rene

YES!!! I am ready for spring!!!

But I have a few months to wait yet up here in the frozen Black Hills.

Love your little snack sets---I think every Mom had some. They sure bring back some memories...

Kelly Ash said...

Hi Becky,

I am totally with you - I am ready for some spring flowers!

Your girls get-together set up is so lovely - it definitely brings spring a little early.

I too wanted to bring some spring inside and just picked up this fabulous orchid and its absolutely amazing (I actually just blogged about it)!

I think having some flowers definitely helps keep the winter away :)

Deb said...

You and I had the same idea. I bought daisies last week and have been enjoying them so much. We are buried under snow here and I have a real need for Spring to arrive. This is such a beautiful post. I enjoyed it so much with my coffee this morning. Have a wonderful day, Hug. Deb=^..^=x5

Flowers always perk me up and I love simple daisies! They do make me think of spring when I see them come up in my garden.

Your tablescape is lovely, you have some pretty things here. Love the water bottle and the pretty dishes. Very pretty!

Have a great weekend, Becky! :-)

I too have been feeling blue about the long drawn out Winter and ready for Spring to arrive!
It snowed once again last night and I am now over it!
Love the metal and glass bud vase you used!
Have a wonderful day!

Ms. Bake-it said...

Hello Becky,

I love daisies, they are so sweet and cheerful. Your post is like a burst of sunshine in an otherwise dreary day. I have a glass snack set and I use mine when I host women's luncheons or a gathering of my girlfriends.

While blog visiting today I saw you on someone's blogroll (sorry, but I cannot remember who it was) and came over to visit. You have a lovely blog and home! I enjoyed my visit and scrolling through your previous post so much that I am now a new follower.

Morning T said...

I think we're all on the same page Becky. I bought some pretty flowers at the store this week and they've brightened up my space as well.
Happy Friday to you.
T said...

Hello there, Anne sent me over to visit. I love, love, love what I see. I will so be back to visit you.

Amy @ Homestead Revival said...

Becky, I love this! Fresh flowers in winter always perk me up! And daisies are a favorite - the only flower I used in my wedding 26 years ago!!

Love your table runner and header pic!


A really fun and easy way to make a light pink drink that is delicious . . . put 2 Celestial Seasonings tea bags into a 2 litre of 7UP or sprite. Keep it in the fridge for two hours. It is a little fuzzy when you open it . . . so open it over a sink. Delicious and looks very fancy.

Thought it would look beautiful on your table.



opps ~ I forgot to say Raspberry Zinger tea bags. Sorry.


A Cottage Muse said...

Becky looking at these beautiful pictures is making me long for spring even more!

Have a nice weekend!

Anne said...

I can just smell that sweet and sunny scent of the daisies and taste the pink punch! Sign me up for the party!

Tammy said...

Your tablescape is fabulous!!! That is something I appreciate, but am not naturally good at. Thanks for your inspiration. Love the yellow!

Susie~From My Home To Yours said...

I have totally been craving some fresh flowers. I love daisies.....they are so simple, yet pack a lot of punch (and they last a long time!).

How clever is your vignette with the lemons? Awesome.

Have a wonderful weekend,
