Happy Easter Tablescape! (Repost)

Hey guys! I hope you are all having a great week! Can you believe it's almost Easter?? I can't! Some of you might remember this tablescape from last year. I decided to repost it for tablescape Thursday. We are going to my grandma's for Easter this year and then I am headed to Dallas. If I was going to do an Easter tablescape this year it would probably look the same anyway! lol...Happy Easter!!



Happy Easter everyone! Welcome to the 33rd tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/. Go check out her tablescape and a list of other participants. You will get some great ideas! I decided to do an easter themed tablescape when I realized my china has the perfect colors for easter. When I got married over 15 yrs. ago, our wedding colors were pink, teal, purple and yellow. I think I seriously thought I was supposed to match my china to my wedding colors! lol.... It's called Floradora Green by Royal Doulton. I really love it and am glad I picked it. It's perfect for spring!


I had this ribbon and it happend to coordinate well with the dishes, so I tied it around the candleholders. I love pretty ribbons!


This rabbit container sits on top of my kitchen cabinets with ferns. As I was looking around the house for tablescaping ideas I spotted it! I got it at Kirkland's several years ago. You might notice it has the same tulips as my tablescape a few weeks ago. I'm recycling!

I bought the little eggs at Michael's on sale for $1.50. I was planning on using them on the napkins, but did this instead.






I bought the little pots of flowers on sale at Michael's too and just glued in the bunnies that I already had.

My mom and dad like to go antique shopping and bought this cream and sugar set last week. It goes perfectly with the china so I had to borrow it!

Here's my Tuesday Morning find. I just love these!

The ribbon is tied on silver napkin rings.

Peeps are my favorite easter candy.

Oops! Sorry little bunny, you are soooo sweet....I just couldn't resist!


Thank you for stopping by, I hope you all have a wonderful and blessed easter!

Oh I am just ooohing and aaaawing and talking out loud as I look at your precious creation here.
I love it all!

It is so elegant Kristen. Your dish pattern is gorgeous! I must tell you my favorite thing has to be your use of the beautifully designed ribbon. You are just soooo talented at that. It's your trademark. The colors are very well matched to your china pattern.

Love the sweet little hanging eggs and the centerpiece too.
The cream and sugar holders are really elegant. They do match prefectly.

Can you tell I adore this table?
I'm in awe and talking too much again...:)

Wonderful job my friend!

Have a blessed Easter.

Melissa Miller said...

~WOW! I cannot believe it has been almost exactly a year later since I first commented on this gorgeous Easter tablescape Kristen. Time really flies by the older we get. It sure seems like it anyway.

Thanks for coming by tonight and for mailing my flowers in advance. I'll let you know when I get it.

I'm so excited to be buying new clothes again in my old size!
Well almost my old size. I'm still one size away from that but close enough for now anyway. You don't need to be wearing all black. You look awesome and need some bright colors too! Your bead necklace is perfect that you made me and picks up all of the colors in my new clothes. I just love it!

Happy Easter & have a safe trip too! ~Melissa :)

Liz said...
