Easter Tablescape

I have the small dining area in the family room all decorated for Easter!
I kept the decorations on the table to a minimum...well, a minimum for ME....

because I didn't want to cover up the beautiful quilt that I used for the tablecloth.  This vintage quilt belonged to my grandmother, my mother, and now to me.
I used a very simple centerpiece because I already had flowers on the buffet....


 I used ironstone plates and a cute paper plate on top..for salad.
I wanted to show you a close up of this sweet teapot....and it sits on a matching plate.

I thought these crystal knife holders were the neatest thing!!  I bought them at an estate sale last weekend for $1 ( for  4)



If I could only have one set of dishes, I would pick white!  They are so versatile...

Here is a close up of the asparagus teapot.
I used this cute radish bowl to hold some pink speckled eggs...

I made a large spring bouquet for the buffet...


Added a sparkly bunny, an old scale, and a foil polka dot egg.
I thought it would be fun to put this glittery bunny in a birdcage...  I had to take the bottom out of it to get him in , so I guess it is now a cloche! 

A pretty pink french cabbage is the focal point of my floral design..

I just love spring and Easter, don't you!

    I adore your Easter tea pots and the beautiful centerpiece on your buffet. The Bunny in the Bird Cage is just darling....

    The idea of using the paper plates with your dishes is such a wonderful idea!

    Hugs,
