Easter Table, 2016

Easter Sunday was a wonderful day: full of family, laughter, hugs, an egg hunt, flower planting, ham, tri-tip roast, scalloped potatoes, 7-layer salad, grilled asparagus, birthday cake (five family birthdays in April!),  bubbles, sidewalk chalk and games. Easter and the three days before it were so jam-packed with things to do, that I only had time to take a few pictures of my Easter table before everyone arrived, but I wanted to share them with you today:

Here's my Easter Table:

The place settings consisted of my Mikasa Zen chargers, my Lenox Butterfly Meadow dinner plates, napkins recently purchased from Bed, Bath and Beyond (I wanted to go with pink this year instead of the napkins that match my Butterfly Meadow tablecloth: just for a change), Butterfly Meadow napkin rings, my late mother-in-law's Roger's silverplate in the Heritage pattern and to top it off a little "nest" filled with Cadbury Eggs. My place cards were a gift from my cousin who makes the loveliest cards for each special occasion. Thank you, Karen!

The highlight of my centerpiece is also a gift from my cousin. She made this lovely faux flower vase for me and I knew it would be the focus of my Easter table. Don't you love the colors? I flanked the vase with glass candlesticks from a late dear friend, and then added my Fitz and Floyd salt and pepper shakers.

I hope your Easter was filled with warmth and joy and the hope that this spring time of year represents.

  1. What a breath of spring Rosie! I love the pink napkins with the sweet butterflies and all the spring blooms! Your menu sounds wonderful and I'm sure was enjoyed by all- adorable china bunnies!

  2. Rosie, your Easter table is gorgeous!! I love those pink napkins with the setting, they added a touch of elegance to the table. Love your Lenox dishes, too. Your cousin's centerpiece was perfect. So glad you all had a nice day. We had rain, so no egg hunting but lots of good food and good company!! Easter blessings, my friend.

  4. Dear Rosie: I so enjoyed your creativity on Easter. Not only your table but the table for the children was so cute. I am so glad you enjoyed the faux flowers and they came in handy for your centerpiece.
    You did an outstanding job with all that you had to do to pull off Easter. Your table looks lovely and I am so glad I got to enjoy it.

  5. Your table is so pretty. I especially like the pink napkins layed across the top horizontally- makes for a nice affect. The place cards are so sweet! I never put out place cards but sometimes I wish I had them because of how my family walks around wondering where they will sit. Love the dishes and the Fitz and Floyd S & P shakers- so cute!

  6. Your table is beautiful. I love your dish combination. Your centerpiece is both charming and lovely. You are very talented.

  7. What a pretty table! I love all the butterflies.

  11. Well, I'm a little late to the party . . . but your table is beautiful. Always love the whimsy of Fitz and Floyd. Everything looks so pretty and spring-like.
    And sounds like you had a wonderful time with your family -- the best part of all!

  12. What a beautiful table! I grew up with those blue dishes from England and they bring back wonderful memories of fish chowder and steamed lobster. So creative how you used the red, white and blue colors.
