Happy Spring!!

 Well, It Finally Got Here!

While I am trying to bring a little
Spring into the homestead
I keep getting sidetracked by the Emergency Room
so I am reposting an Easter Table from 2011.
I hope you will enjoy this reprise
while I work on this year's STUFF!

Simple Easter Supper


Vintage Dishes Not The Food!!

Let's set up for a simple supper with friends to usher in the Holy Week.

Let's get started with Bob's free flowers. 
You can read more about the free flowers HERE.
Perk up last weeks roses.
You can revive fading flowers by submerging them in cold water, If they are not too far gone.
I was able to reuse these from a dozen.
Choose a container.
This was a thrift store find many years ago.

Aren't they cute?

Oasis in a food container. Bunnies, have a hairline crack.
Now to set the table.
The Blue Onion pieces are used daily and will be moved.
The beaded runner is from Pier One after Easter Sale.
The flowers in the bunnies are last week's.
Finished centerpiece on milkglass cake plate.
See how nice the roses look. They are a week old.
Placemat Dillard's 70% off sale. Large dinner plate, Dollar Tree. Using for greater contrast.

Dinner plate Homer Laughlin. Wedding gift 1958. Vintage enough?

Bunny plate, Pier One, same sale.
He keeps giving me the eye! I think he's flirting with me. I think he is cute too!
Looks like an egg cup. Not, we will having fruit. Kim brought these to me in March.
The sterling is Wallace's "Waltz of Spring". Did any of you pick out a silver pattern when you were a senior in high school. In the 50's this was the custom. This is the pattern I chose when I was l8 years old. I didn't have the money to purchase any at the time. I forgot about it and years later decided to see if I could find it. Yep!! I found it. It is now discontinued and is vintage!
The blue tinted goblet was part of our 12 day's of Christmas gift. You can read about it here
Now let's just look around before our friends arrive.



Palm fronds to remember the Palm Sunday.


These little houses are part of a lighted village. This I am using what happened to be on the first floor.
No one in this house felt like bringing the boxes down.

My daughters will laugh when they see I had this much stuff already downstairs.
Most was acquired after last Easter.

Better view of the cake plate. 

This is Bob and me. He's sooooooo sweet! Most of the time.


HA, HA! THE YOKES ON YOU!!! These are salt and pepper shakers. HomeGoods, this year.

I have used these votives previously but I love the white and It goes well here. Dollar Tree finds.
I truly hope that you have enjoy helping me set the table. Please leave a comment, they are like colored Easter eggs.
Have a blessed Easter Week!
I am linking the following gracious hostesses and their wonderful parties.
Be sure to link back to them for more fun.

I promise a brand new one next week.

Ginger,
I hope all is well with you. I enjoyed seeing this table because I missed it last year. Your centerpiece was beautiful, and I didn't know that you could revive roses that way. I think your silverware pattern is gorgeous!

The French Hutch said...

I hope all is well. Sidetracked by the ER scares me! Beautiful spring flowers and I'm loving the Easter tablescape I missed. The bunny container is so sweet and the floral arrangement you made is glorious. Such sweet bunny plates and egg cups. I love the Palm fronds, the perfect Easter touch. Great post!

Shanee @ LivingLifeSouthernStyle said...

What a pretty table. I love the bunny centerpiece and the way you elevated on a cake plate and your napkin rings are too cute. Thanks for sharing.

NanE said...

I really enjoyed your post today, even if it was from last year, good taste never gets old! Your centerpiece is gorgeous, the colors are stunning and the bunny planter perfect. Now I have a question for you, you have a Peony pictured at the top of your post, is that in your garden? I'm in Charleston and no matter what I try, I can't get them to survive the Summer. It breaks my heart too because my Daddy lived in Ohio and they were his favorite flower. Have a great week, Nan
