Easter Dining

 I am the resurrection and the life, he that believeth in me, 
though he were dead, yet shall he live
John 11:25

The Lenox Easter tree and the cross go well together.  I've owned the bas-relief daisy votive holders from the Lenox for some time.

I like how they look with a candle burning in them.

I chose the mirrors for "reflection"

 Each egg has a family member's name on them.

Topping the stack are the Pier 1 bunny egg shaped dishes. 
I wanted to use our fine china set by Noritake called Yoshino.  When I first found these dishes I was smitten with them because of the springlike colors.  We selected them for our 30th Wedding anniversary- Today is our 36th!

 I layered two chargers. This allowed pops of green to show and help separate the white from the tablecloth. 

I used these Pier 1 votives as egg holders

The blue and green stemware draws your eyes up and offers a nice layer of color.  I'm happy they go well with the china.  The pops of color offered by the votives holding the eggs added some traditional Easter coloring.  The gold flatware is always paired with these dishes.

  5. Happy anniversary Liz. I can see why you were so smitten with those dishes. They are gorgeous.!
    The egg tree is beautiful and special to have each family member's name. Your egg shaped dishes are sweet. Love the cross, perfect for this festive Easter table.

  6. Happy Anniversary! Your china is so beautiful..lovely table!

  7. I like that cross! So glad that you're including that on your Easter table. After all, that's what it's all about, the Cross and the Resurrection. Have a blessed Easter. Great Scripture selection.

  8. Happy Anniversary, Liz! I love how you highlighted your beautiful cross for your table. The mirror for "reflections" is so appropriate as is John 11:25
    May your family have a blessed Easter.

  9. Very pretty Liz! I love all your Lenox things....the family egg tree is so precious and unusual! A beautiful table. Happy Easter.~~Angela

  10. Your table setting is so pretty. I love the sentiments you added to the table as well. Happy Anniversary!

  11. Belated Happy Anniversary. Your table is really pretty and the Lenox cross and votives are perfect with your Easter egg tree. Love your new cross and the way you displayed it, too. Wishing you and your family a joyous Easter.

  12. Liz, your table is stunning. I love all of the elements--the Lenox cross, egg-shaped bunny plates, the pale blue stemware, egg tree, the layered dishes. Have a blessed Easter.

  13. After watching the memorial service for those 3 people shot at the Jewish Community Center/Village Shalom on TV this morning, I believe John 11:25 even more. I have to. It's the only thing to keep me going at this point. You chose that passage right on time, sister.

    The cross is absolutely beautiful. I think because it is that clean, pure white that it looks even prettier. The design is gorgeous. Neat "thorny crown" around it!!!

    Happy Anniversary to you both! Your 30th anniversary dishes are beautiful and perfect to celebrate your 36th as well as to commemorate the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on this very special upcoming weekend.

  14. A beautiful table Liz. Looks like you are ready for Easter, now if the weather would just cooperate!!!

  15. Liz, this is a beautiful table for Easter Sunday. I love the white bunny plates, they are so pretty with your anniversary dishes. You are right, the pattern on the plates is like the flowers on a Spring day. I especially love the Lenox Easter Egg tree, it is lovely. To me the most important element on this table is the cross. The picture of the cross illuminated by the light of the candle in the votive is more than just lovely, it brings peace to the mind to know that we are so loved.

  16. What a beautiful table Liz! Great reminder of what the holiday is really about. I love the votives used as egg holders! Have a blessed Easter!

  17. Beautiful! Your table is a perfect celebration of Easter! I hope you had a nice anniversary. Enjoy a wonderful Easter.

  18. Very pretty tablescape! I LOVE the cross with the tiny grapevine wreath representing the crown of thorns around it = terrific symbolism! Very poignant looking pic of the darker pic with the candle beside it. Wishing you a blessed Easter!



  19. Very pretty with all the Easter d├ęcor! Love the mirror in the middle.

  23. Hi Liz, This is a gorgeous table -- so elegant!! I love everything on it! Your wedding china is beautiful (Happy Anniversary, by the way). I also love your stemware and napkins. The painted Easter eggs at each place setting are gorgeous; I've never seen any like that! This is truly a lovely table, Liz, and I hope you had a blessed Easter.
