Easter Tablescape

I promised myself that I wasn't going to put out any bunnies until it was a little closer to Easter...but, I just couldn't wait any longer!   It seems like I am more excited than usual about spring this year.
I springified  the dining room chandy by adding a couple of  apple blossom garlands .....

I had been loving lavender this spring and decided to use lots of it in my Easter tablescape.    I bought these big sparkly lavender eggs at Hobby Lobby last year...90% off.   They matched the lavender carrots that I had got there the year before.  
All the place settings are different....for this one  I used a spring green transferware plate as the charger,  then added a white plate,  and topped it off with a lavender cut glass plate.

I used matching plaid pastel place mats and  plaid napkins on all four settings.   I added one of my grandmothers pansy crochet pieces to this setting....just for whimsy!
This place setting has a ironstone plate for the charger.  It has a pretty spray of flowers in the center  that show through the lavender cut glass plate.

Here is the last place setting...all are different...but the spring theme brings them all together!
I have a yellow butter dish on one end of the table and a pretty purple one on the other end....
This yellow depression  pitcher and glass set belonged to my mother.

The centerpiece for the table is a sweet bunny sitting on a cake plate.   The little Easter basket to her right is a hand crocheted piece that has been heavily starched.
This sweet hand painted bunny pull toy is sitting on the pass thru between the dining room and kitchen.

Tea pot and cup set....

See the pretty ceramic picture sitting below the stained glass piece in the window?
I found this hand painted ceramic tile picture a long time ago at a yard sale and fell in love with it.   I thought it was a wonderful addition to my lavender and pastel theme for the dining room.
I have deliberately ignored my Easter tree over in the corner of the dining room.   This post was already long enough...and I wanted you to see all the decorations on my Easter tree...so I'll be back soon!

  1. Oh, Your bunnies are so sweet, Penny. I think all of us are so anxious for Spring this year! It is because, for most of us it has been a long, miserable winter. Enjoy those bunnies! xo Diana

  10. Penny, can I say I am in love... Your decorating just tantalizes my eyes.. I am going gaga !! If this doesn't instill the desire to decorate, nothing does. Can I come and stay ??LOL hugs and love Kathleen

  11. Penny, your tablescape as usual is just breathtaking! In your spare time (ha,ha) can you please tell us just how you organize all your beautiful things, and your linens, is it by color, season or - - can't wait to see your tree. Your posts are never, ever too long!!!

    ReplyDelete
  12. You are right! We of great minds do think alike! Your lavender is stunning! I have never collected it before so mine will be sparce..but you can bet I have my eyes open wide looking for more! Your table is just simply wonderful! No one but you could accomplish something like that. *extremely heavy sigh* :) (I enlarge every single picture and absorb the details like a starving person with their first chocolate cake!) Oh, okay, so I get a bit dramatic! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  13. Penny, you need a shop or two to decorate!!Love that you take so much care with your decorations!

  15. I love all the different place settings! I think my favorite is the one with the lavender cut glass plate! Gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  16. This is so pretty. I like how you used different dishes at each place setting and how it all works so well together. I have to say, that my most favorite part of this beautiful tablescape is your grand-mother's incredible pansy crochet. I'm always drawn to pansies because they are my favorite flower.

  17. This is a spring delight -- we're so ready here in Michigan, looking out at the piles of snow. I, too, was going to wait a little, but I did start bringing out some spring things just today. Love, love that lavender cut glass, it's gorgeous. I love to decorate for spring b/c I love pastels. Yours are so pretty! I hope we get to see the tree close up!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh, Thank you so much for this lovely and lively breath of Spring......not too much longer to wait.
    I especially luv the tile picute of lilacs =breathtaking! I also am a big fan of anything in lavender blue to pastel purple color range; just makes me feel peaceful and light hearted to look at your tablescape. Can't wait for the TREE!! YIPPEE!!

  25. I love your Easter table! I've started early too. I think it's because it's been such a long, cold winter this season. We've had snow on the ground since Christmas! It started to melt a bit a few days ago and I actually saw the grass in our backyard for the first time in a long time!! Yay! I'm really looking forward to spring!! I absolutely love those lavender Easter eggs. So pretty. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely week!

  29. So cute Penny. Now I need to get out the Easter decorations.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Penny, your Spring and Easter posts were SO fabulous this week I couldn't choose my favorites between them!
    So - congratulations - you are one of my featured guests this week at Inspire Me Monday at Create With Joy and - while I do my best to "spread the love" among my guests - I ended up sharing several of your photos because - in the midst of my loss - they reminded me of my mom who SO loved to decorate and they truly brought joy to my heart!

    Have a wondrous week!
