Blue, White, & Yellow Spring Tablescape

I don't think it's a secret to anyone who knows me :)  I love blue and white.  I find a certain coziness,  and joy in this soothing color combination.  I love that it can look English or French, and that it can be dressed up or down.  So with the start of Spring this week, I thought it would be fun to make you a cheery table-scape with blue, white, and yellow :)
 I Found some fun ways to add yellow to my Spode dinnerware :)  I used peeps, and yellow M&M's candies for a sweet pop of yellow.   Then I used yellow straws and printed out yellow flags on my computer to add a cheery message to the drinks.
 I also found these really fun parchment (food safe) deco leaves (or in this case flowers). They are so fun. The package I purchased came with 10 sunflowers and 10 fuchsia Gerber daisies.
 They run around $10.00 and here is the link on Amazon for them
I actually had two containers of flowers.  A large urn vase filled with Agapanthus and Forsythia branches, and a Laura Ashley blue and white pitcher filled with a sunny mix of sunflowers, daisies, roses, lilies, and carnations.
Here are the yellow polka dot flags I made for the straws and a blue and white porcelain slipper filled with golden bubbles (yellow peanut M&M's :)  The glassware is hand-blown in Mexico and goes perfectly with my blue and white dishes, you can find it at Pier One, and World Market.
Here is the setting without the yellow parchment flowers, and most of the yellow removed
Here's to wishing you a warm and wonderful Spring.  I wish I could sit, have coffee, and chat with each and everyone of you.  Here's to a sunny, and cheery Spring
