This Easter represents a milestone for our family. My daughter is hosting Easter dinner.
I’ll be helping her to create a beautiful table for her party, but since we have vastly different styles, I just HAD to set my own table with our traditional Easter decorations — my collection of Easter bunnies and fruit plates.
Our table linens were a wedding gift and I still love the intricate embroidery on them. I bought the little plant pot napkin rings years ago at Waccamaw — remember them? Mom’s Chantilly sterling flatware also came out for the party.
Each place setting has a Pier 1 charger, a Four Crown Claridge dinner plate, and a fruit salad plate. There are six different patterns on the fruit plates.
Every place setting also has a different Beatrix Potter animal in a “nest” of grass on a pink Depression glass saucer.
Woodland bunnies guard the Japanese porcelain lidded server, with floral etched glass goblets complementing the natural themes in the different pieces. The stained glass votives were purchased from Partylite years ago and always come out for Easter.
The centerpiece features daffodils rescued from my garden during the snow and tulips and mums from Trader Joe’s. I tucked more bunny figurines among the flowers.
My feature piece is a triple slump fused glass bowl handmade by my friend Debbie. If you are interested in getting one of your own, she sells her glass creations and can be reached via her website.
Our Easter tablescape is not sophisticated and it’s not trendy. It represents years of collecting and curating beautiful pieces that are both sentimental and meaningful.
I’m linking up today with the creative bloggers at Inspire Me Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life, History and Home Link Party at We Call It Junkin’, Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch, and Seasonal Sundays at The Tablescaper. Be sure to stop by and say, “Hello!”
P.S. It’s going to be fun setting Engineering Barbie’s table. Photos to come later!
