A French Country Inspired Spring Brunch Buffet

Hello Everyone, 
we're all so excited to start off this special week of our
 Share Your Style Spring Blog Hop!

This week all eight of us will be sharing some fresh new Spring Inspiration and we hope you'll share what you've been doing to transform your spaces for this brand new Season.

It all started with this wonderful multi-colored Waverly Toile fabric I found for a new table runner in my Dining Room. I knew I wanted something "Green" for Spring, but wasn't sure which direction I wanted to go. Once I saw this, I knew it would make the perfect backdrop for a Country French inspired Easter Brunch Buffet.

I brought out my wedding "china", which isn't really china, but French Faience. Faience is an earthenware tin-glazed pottery, hand painted and kiln fired. Some of the individual flowers are almost 3-Dimensional to the touch. They vary in depth and hue, as each one is painted by hand.

I wanted to mix the bright handmade florals of the Faience with my small Staffordshire, English teapots and a few cloches. It's perfect for a vintage inspired tablescape for an intimate Spring Brunch and Tea. As you can see I've invited a few special "friends" to the gathering.

A flat of Purple Pansies enticed me to bring
 out my Cloches for "Spring under Glass".

An antique "tea for one" teapot 

 The Ironstone tureen, one of my favorite pieces,
 is French Opaque de Sarreguemines, 
from the late 1800's.

I think I must have "styled" all these pieces one hundred different ways. But it was so much fun, starting out with just a fabric piece and letting it choose the plates, flowers, teapots and baskets.

Thanks so much for coming by...
