Tablescape Garden Bouquet

A bonus when trimming the bushes is a big bunch of bougainvillea branches for the table.
I'm using my set of Portmeirion dishes for March.
The Botanic Garden is perfect for Spring and St. Patrick's Day.
 I put a crystal votive at each place settings.
 Matching salt and pepper set. Coffee cups and saucers set out for breakfast tomorrow morning.
 Each piece has a different botanic flower. 
I love the variety in these dishes. The flowers are all identified in their correct botanical names.  It's a big change from my usual blue and white. I think March seems to need a little green.

Cheers!

  3. I have always loved this Portmeirion pattern and your table is exceptional. I can't think of a better centerpiece than one from ones own garden. The bougainvillea branches are gorgeous. Loved your post.
