Easter 2016


Bordallo Pinheiro's new line of cabbage dishes was my inspiration for this year's Easter table. The new line is called San Raphael. The colors are the same as the "old" cabbage dishes, just the shape has changed. They are almost round, with no separate leaves showing. I found only three of the purple dinner plates after scouring the city of all the Tuesday Mornings. My sweet sister-in-law found three more for me in the Tuesday Morning in her area of Ohio and mailed them to me. Thank you so much, Rondi.



I started with a floral tablecloth instead of a traditional Easter one. I chose solid purple cotton napkins held with ceramic bunny napkin rings.




The plate stack starts with a white wood charger, then I alternated green and purple Bordallo Pinheiro cabbage plates.


Pioneer Woman has a line of dishes sold at WalMart, so I picked up the plum water/lemonade stems to go with the purple cabbage plates. Once again, the Oneida Louisiana flatware is being used.








The centerpiece is the bottom portion of a small cabbage tureen filled with Easter candies and colored eggs...I had lavender peeps to add, but forgot the yucky little things. I also used 2 cones filled with candies and eggs. The flowers are purple carnations and alstroemeria in lavender Mason jars. I do not have an artistic gene in my body, but I painted some eggs for the occasion. 


I want to thank Jemma of At Home With Jemma for the nice little package I received for having my number drawn on last week's Thoughts Of Home On Thursday. Some of the little eggs on the dessert plates were part of the package. If you have never stopped by her blog, you should take a few minutes to read it. Thank you again, Jemma.

Thanks for visiting today, hope you will come back next time.

HAPPY EASTER!

So beautiful Marigene. This new color is new to me, I haven't seen it at all. So happy she was able to help you out in your search and find more for you. So appropriate for Easter.

Oh, what a lovely table! I don't think I've seen the purple plates before - I love them. Your little sweet bunny napkin rings are darling. I love your purple PW glasses too. I've seen those now I want to get me some! :) Congrats on your little package of eggs from Jemma. Thanks for popping in to see me and have a blessed Easter.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

What a beautiful combination with the purples & greens, Marigene! The tablecloth looks as inspiring for your color scheme as any other element, but I love the riot of colors. Hahaha...your comment, "yucky little things"....Happy Spring and Easter to you!

Your stacks of BP dishes are so perfect for Easter, Marigene. Don't the PW's goblets look pretty with the dishes? The tablecloth just brings out all the colors in the plates and the centerpiece. Happy Easter week, to you and your hubby!

Good Afternoon Marigene,
I have been waiting for your Easter table and you have treated us to a gem.
It really means so much to me on how you have used purple as your main anchor in this gorgeous table setting, such a symbolic color for celebrating Easter.
Such incredibly delicious rich hues combined with the green.
I am happy to know that you were able to incorporate some of the gold eggs from your package.
Thank you for the thoughtful mention too-that was very sweet of you:)
Wishing you a blessed Easter.
Jemma

Wow Marigene, you did a wonderful job! Loving the vibrant color and patterns. That plate stack is my favorite with those cabbage leaf dishes and purple.

Have a great day!

Love that purple color! I rarely find anything I like at Tuesday morning :( Maybe I should start going on Tuesday mornings - LOL.

The rich colours you've chosen stand in wonderful relief to all of the pastels of the season. What a beautiful table!

OMG your table is stunning. I have those green dishes that I love. Now I want to mix them with another color. Positively beautiful. Have a wonderful weekend.

Your Easter table is gorgeous. I think you definitely DO have artistic talent. Only an artist could arrange such a table; it's like a painting. I love it. Have a lovely Easter. Nancy

Lulu said...

Your table is so alive with color and texture....you know how I love that!

Rettabug said...

Oh my goodness, Marigene...how beautifully vibrant your Easter table looks! Gorgeous color combinations & all the extra little touches really make it super special. I know the food will be great, too!
I've been coveting the Pioneer Woman's line of dishes but have been resisting so far. Now I wish I hadn't been so strong.
Happy, Healthy, Blessed Easter to you & yours!

This is the most beautiful Easter table Marigene! The color of the plates, mixing them for the stack is stunning. Love the tablecloth. I'm sure everyone was looking at the table and not the food. I am always in awe of your tablescapes!
Happy Easter…….

Laura said...

Absolutely stunning Marigene!
Your sense of color and color combinations is amazing.
Happy Easter!

Denise at Forest Manor said...

Oh my goodness, Marigene, I think this table is just beautiful! I love, love the colors. The tablecloth is sooo pretty, as are the napkins and the darling bunny napkin rings. Those new cabbage plates definitely have a different shape, don't they? You did a good job painting the Easter eggs! I laughed when you said you forgot the yucky Peeps. :-D Do you know, I used to love those things when I was growing up, even into my early 20's, but now not so much. Yucky is right; they are awfully cute, though. :)

Thanks for sharing your pretty table, Marigene; I hope you had a Blessed Easter.

Hugs,

Denise
