Pretty Primroses

When I spotted these bright primroses in Home Depot's garden area, I had to bring some home with me.  Their vivid colors and textured leaves are so appealing, especially in wintertime. 
 I particularly love the two-color varieties -- so cheery!
 Set into matching pots, the plants made an instant centerpiece for a simple Sunday lunch table.
Most Sundays my father-in-law joins my husband and me for lunch after church, so the table is set for three.  The menu is simple -- broccoli cheese soup and grilled ham and cheese sandwiches this week -- so we only needed soup bowls and bread plates.
A place set with our everyday dishes (Dansk Kristina and Florencia), glasses and flatware.
I failed to get a picture of dessert -- heart-shaped tart shells filled with a lemon curd-whipped cream mixture and topped with fresh strawberries.  We are ready for spring!
Thank you for visiting my table today! I will be linking to Let's Dish at Cuisine Kathleen this week.


  1. I love your little Frenchy table!

  2. I always do a centerpiece with primroses in the spring. I love them, especially the white ones which I pair with many shades of greens such as apples, artichokes and limes.
    I like your little pots they are sitting in and your cute tablecloth. I believe spring is right around the corner.

  3. The primroses look so cute in the center, and they are a sure sign of spring, although in Utah it is a bit too cold for them yet. Love the yellow tablecloth with your blue everyday dishes. Joni

  4. My kind of table! Great job on a table for three...they're not easy to design. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Cherry Kay

  5. The primroses are so sweet. I brought one home this week too. Hope you and your valentine had a sweet day.

  6. Tricia, not only is your table very cozy and cute, you answered a question for me. The mug I have has the twins to your red with yellow centered flowers on it, which is nice to know. You really have a knack for combining all the right elements to make an inviting table.
