Easter Table

Easter is in a few short days and here we are with snow covering the yard. I guess there will be no Easter egg hunt this year!



The colors in this tablecloth are what made me buy it! Aquas, greens, purples and yes, even the pinks. Back in November I treated myself to a few birthday gifts from eBay...some pink and purple Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage leaf plates and bowls that were the price of one plate from most sellers. I am rather excited to use them for my Easter table. The purple plates will be used for dessert and the bowls for the green salad.







 The purple flatware matches the dessert plates nicely.




Purple stemware seemed a natural choice...



The centerpiece started with a Fitz and Floyd deviled egg plate held up by 3 little bunnies that I used to lift the vase of tulips up a little bit...this is flanked with Esther Easter bunny and Elmer Easter bunny that I have had for several years. I also added the little black and white salt and peppers.










I tried dying eggs using silk ties...even though 3 said 100% silk only one of them worked, so I am guessing 2 of the ties were not silk! I just dyed the others with food coloring. I will try it again as soon as I find a few more ties!




I hung papier mâché-like eggs from the chandelier.



I really appreciate you taking the time out of your busy day to visit...thank you.

You've created a gorgeous outside the box Easter tablescape. The orange and purple work beautifully together. This is the first time that I've seen the orange bordallo. I'm not a huge orange fan, but this table might have just converted me. Thanks for inviting us for a peak. Happy Easter! Cherry Kay

Alycia Nichols said...

You did it! You did it! PINK, baby!!!!!!!!! I love it! It looks great with the purple accessories and the really pretty table linen! GREAT idea to elevate the vase with that egg tray!!!!!!!!!!!!! What a cool look!

Most of the snow melted away here today after a very unexpected afternoon of intense sunshine. I am SO glad for that!!! I was starting to get cranky again!

Have a beautiful and blessed Easter, Marigene! I hope your entire weekend is a good one!

I was drawn in by the beautiful colours in your linky pic at Kathleen's LD and I wasn't disappointed! Fantastic tablecloth and LOVE those dishes - can't believe you got them on Ebay! I'm always scared to order from there but maybe I should be brave and score some great dishes like you!
Happy Easter!

Marigene, how nice that you found those beautiful cabbage leaf pieces on eBay. I'm found of my set of green ones, and would like to add more in other colors. Your table is so pretty!

I have a particular weakness for cabbage plates and bowls. You have a nice collection here, how fun that you treat yourself for your birthday. I do the same thing. Very pretty. Happy Easter to you and your family.

Wow, I love your Easter table, Marigene. Your glassware and dishes pick up all the beautiful pastels in your table cloth. That's what an Easter table should look like. Tulips aren't blooming yet here.

Wonderful new tablecloth! You certainly scored with the pink cabbage china and coordinating the hues in the linens is lovely. You used all your lavender goblets as a special accent! Have a Happy Easter!

Your table looks so festive for Easter. Yep, we've been known to hold our Easter egg hunts inside the house when the kids were young because of the weather outside!

Hi, Marigene. Of course that tablecloth had to come home with you--it's beautiful, and so versatile! You'll be able to do all sorts of tables with it, and the one you did is beautiful. I love all the purples.

Thanks for stopping by my Bunnyville post and commenting! ~Zuni
