Easter Breakfast (T)

I chose colors for my tablescape to go with the Easter Floral Egg Basket I had put together a little while back.

I wanted something yellow for under the dishes so I chose these butterfly placemats and then I added the deep pink placemats for a pop of color.

The dishes come as a set of four- one in each color.  I don't usually order the cups but this time I did because sometimes you just can't go back and find them again.  It took an unusually long time for the dishes to come in so they must have been popular.


Sorry my pictures aren't more crisp.

Looking forward to a cozy breakfast Easter morning!

Wishing you, your family and friends a Happy Easter!

Table contents:
Lenox "Colors of Spring" (these are listed in stock now)
White dishes are something I found at T.J.Maxx long ago- just a good basic
Napoleon Flatware 
Napoleonic Bee Wine Glass by LaRochere
Tablecloth from Pottery Barn from a few years ago
Napkins Pier 1 Imports
Butterfly placemat from Kohl's a year or two ago

Easter Goodies Basket

I gathered some goodies for my Grandson and filled a basket. 
The lamb is from Hallmark.  I found a little bath toy and a couple of books for him too.

I snuck some clothing in on the back side.
(I should've neatened things up for the pictures but I was in a hurry)

I found these neat bags at Michael's that fit with ample room

No chocolate bunnies or candies since he's so young.

Easter Goodies- a little fun for the little ones!

Herd of Sheep and Tulip Update!

I saw this at a store but didn't buy it although I kept thinking about it.  I found it on Amazon for less money and I got free shipping so I felt better about purchasing it. (Made by Creative Co-Op) It does have a hole with a plug in case you want to plant real flowers.  I chose to go artificial.

I found these succulents at my favorite store up in Petoskey (Monarch Garden & Floral Design) 
I looked through my saved artificial plants/flowers and found something to add as filler.

I like it from behind the best- on the front side I didn't want to crowd out the faces of the lambs.

Update on the planter...
Some of the tulips are blooming!  These are the Salmon Pearl tulips

The grape hyacinths (Blue Magic) are much paler than the deeper blue in the picture that I saved from my order- but no complaints!  They have become a little tall- again more natural UV rays would help.  

I'm enjoying seeing the new developments each day.  I'm thankful the bulbs survived the winter in the planter while stored in the garage.  We had some pretty bitter days in January.

There are still more plants erupting from the soil so the blooming will continue for a while!   There are some soft purple with white tulips, white narcissus and yellow narcissus yet to come!

Storybook Easter Dining (T)

I was thinking of storybook tales like Peter Rabbit when I created this tablescape.

Imagining all the little storybook creatures scurrying about delivering eggs and feasting on flowers and cabbage long the way!
I previously showed my centerpiece arrangement in this post "here".   The rabbit is standing inside a wreath of flowers and eggs.  I added a few more eggs and set up more little bunnies and chicks.

My pretty stemware that my kids and hubby helped me to start collecting seemed perfect with it's floral accents.  

I chose my pink cabbage bowls and green cabbage leaf plates to continue the storybook garden theme.

I've had these napkins for at least 3 years and never used them.  They remind me of colorful Easter eggs.  I found the tulip napkin rings last summer on discount.  

Since I have a grandson that is a toddler my mind shifts in the storybook direction.
Here comes Peter Cottontail...hoppin' down the bunny trail...hippity hoppity Easter's on it's way!

Thank you for joining me and I hope you liked my Storybook Easter Dining presentation!

Pink cabbage bowls- made by Bordallo Pinheiro

Decorative Easter Touches- Part 3

I always like to decorate the plate rack seasonally and for the holidays.
I think I should have just defined my Easter decorating as "Bunnyopolis" 

More bunnies on some salad plates that I fell in love with from Williams Sonoma

I love the colors and botanical aspects and of course the adorable bunnies!

I kept the little table deco simple.

I loaded up the cake plate with some raffia and eggs.

Down below I set the two bunnies that my mom made for me from her ceramics class many years ago.  

I added some white lacy looking plates and cobalt blue dishes from Pier 1 that have bunnies on them to my other plate rack.

Though I bought these with Easter in mind they can be used year round.
They referred to them as a new twist on flow blue earthenware English style glazing and embossed graphics.

I ended up having to move the etagere back to the corner.  My little Easter chicks and eggs are easier to see now too.  

Lastly another bunny feeding on carrots!
I used him last year for a tablescape you can see "here"

So that's a wrap on my Decorative Easter Decorating!
