I’m a little late, but am joining Susan for another Tablescape Thursday (in my case, Tablescape Saturday) at Between Naps on the Porch. Please stop by and see all the beautiful tables!
I've been playing around with my Easter table setting this week and think it's just about done. I might do a bit more tweaking, but this is basically it. We won't be home for lunch on Sunday, so I'm planning a candlelight Easter dinner for tonight.
I started with a pink damask tablecloth. Over it, I layered a pretty pastel runner that I found at a thrift store. Lots of little bunnies are scattered around the table.
I found these vintage cabbage leaf salad plates at an antique store. They're signed on the bottom and are from the 1960's. I also found the porcelain eggs in the same antique store and decided to use them as napkin rings.
There was a matching lidded cabbage bowl with the plates. It's being used to hold the centerpiece. Since I used wisteria in the arrangement, I had to lift the bowl up on a crystal candleholder. I'll probably move the arrangement to a side table when we sit down to eat.
I normally use silk flowers, but I couldn’t pass up these roses when I saw them. I have learned a valuable lesson...when working with fresh flowers, if you're not putting them in a vase, always buy floral foam for them! :shock: See how they just want to flop over on the sides of the bowl??? So...guess what I'm off to the store this afternoon to buy???
I was tickled pink to use these glasses that my sweet DH gave me for Valentine's Day. I spotted them in my favorite antique shop and he surprised me with them. He's such a sweetie.
After taking the photos, I added pastel curling ribbon at the top of the eggs for just a bit of added color.
One last photo...the table by candlelight.
