Birds of a Feather Flock Together Tablescape

Hello everyone,
No truer words were said...Birds of a Feather Flock Together. Yes, We Do!
I photographed this tablescape yesterday morning and after lunch I was planting in the garden. I don't usually plant annuals, but this year because of the garden tour I'm planting of instant color. 
Now back to tablescaping. I won a gift certificate from French Bleu Vintage a few years ago and I picked this vintage bird cage. My little birds have another home outside in the patio, but they consented to come inside for couple of days. LOL
March is a busy month at My Cozy Corner. On Sunday we had a family dinner for Sweetheart. He is now 72 years old. Between birthdays and garden I'm one busy old lady. This jeweled napkin ring caught my eye at the thrift store about a month ago. I didn't by them at that time.  $2.00 silly me. Then I was thinking they would look nice with this table. I hopped in the car and ran over to the thrift store. I couldn't find them anywhere. Finally I asked and there they were just waiting for me to bring them home.
I love birds. When we first moved into our home the back yard was very different looking. HERE We had chickens and loved the fresh eggs each morning for breakfast while the children were growing up. Oh yes, our middle son will be 50 this Sunday. We're going out to dinner and celebrate our Patrick's birthday. He was born the day before St. Patrick's Day. What was I going to do. I had to name him Patrick. Besides I love the name. Well I sure did get off the topic of tablescaping.
Do you think the eggs are a little bit out of proportion with the size of the birds? LOL
I think they are so cute...♥

I.ve always been a a storyteller about everything. I try to stay as close to the truth as possible  These plates have a story too.
I don't know what plants they are, but they look like weeds to me. 
I found the four plates at a yard sale for $2.00. I knew they would be perfect for a spring table. I was going to use them later this spring outside under the pergola, but I just couldn't wait.

Grape vine wreath, green dollar tree plates, Martha Stewart salad plates and weed plates from yard sale. Sweet♥
The place mats were on clearance at TM. There is a set of place mats, four napkins  and a table runner for $9.00. I didn't use the napkins for this tablescape because they are huge. I had this smaller contrasting green napkin that works well with my semi-shear napkins. The white flatware is from Walmart. 
There you have it. My Birds~St. Patrick's Day and Spring Tablescape all
rolled into one. 
Have a great weekend and hopefully we will all have a sunny Sunday.
