Easter 2017


I recently acquired a couple more lavender Bordallo Pinheiro dinner plates from eBay...they are rarer than hens teeth! They arrived in time to do an Easter tablescape. I have used all BP china for this table. The pieces include white chargers, lavender dinner, luncheon, salad plates, berry bowls and even a platter that I have used under the centerpiece. I have always used the luncheon plate for salads and the salad plates for dessert.



I have used a large piece of fabric as the tablecloth and lavender napkins.


The purple glasses are Ivima that I bought several years ago at TJMaxx. The sterling flatware is Oneida Afterglow.








The centerpiece is a couple small pots of lavender tulips that I plopped into a white tureen that is resting on a lavender BP bunny sandwich plate. The white candle holders came from a thrift store, Goodwill, I think and the purple candles, probably from WalMart.

Thank you for visiting today...hope you will return next time.

HAPPY EASTER!

I will join Rattlebridge Farm for Foodie Friday and Everything Else.

How lovely. Glad you could add a couple more to your collection. Purple seems the perfect color for Easter!

Your Easter table is simply stunning with your new eBay purchases, Marigene. I love your choice of fabric for the table covering and your tulip centerpiece is perfect. Happy Easter blessings to you!

What an absolutely gorgeous table!! If only I had storage for multiple various dishes/glasses I'd be thrilled to put together some of these looks you post - you are so talented!!

Ohmygosh, Marigene, that lavender BP is stunning! I don't know what it is, but I have recently gravitated toward loving that light shade of purple....my mother wore it often, and so well, and I've grown my own lavender for years. We're re-doing our master bath and I am thinking I want that color towels. But, oh, that dishware!! So beautiful. Happy Easter, Marigene.

Well, you know I love everything here. The little cabbage bowls really get to me, though, because of their extreme cuteness. I also like that stemware. I saw a purple table setting the other day and it had bright orange flowers as the centerpiece and it looked amazing, so I am challenging you to an orange and purple table setting. I'll be waiting. :-)

I'm so happy I happened across your blog! I was on Linda's at A La Carte, and saw your post. I LOVE your tablescape! I've really gotten away from blogging, from do stop from time to time, and I'm so glad I did! Nice to meet another gal in the Midwest! I'm a new follower, too!

Lovely table for Easter. I do love the purple.
I think I need to explore ebay for the green Bordallo. Tuesday Morning has not had the green with white veining in ages and I passed up getting enough then.I was crazy.
Hope your Easter Sunday was joyous.

Gorgeous - once again. Your color combination is the greatest - I especially love the glasses - and of course the cabbage dishes - always a favorite. I can just see the delicious dinner served on such a pretty table.

I hope you had a lovely Easter. Your purple BP dinnerware is really a great choice for your Easter table setting and using the white tureen with the purple bully plate as a base was perfect for displaying the beautiful purple tulips. Simply lovely.

Hugs,
Candy

Beautiful, Marigene! The color of the dishes reminds me of eggplant...so dark and rich. I was admiring your 'tablecloth'! Such a pretty pattern. And it's fabric! I wouldn't mind curtains made from that fabric.

A bleated Happy Easter. Hope all is well in your world!! :)

Oh Marigene, I just love your table and especially the lavender BP. I have never laid eyes on it anywhere. It is just gorgeous, I will certainly keep searching for it. I see you have purchased it on eBay. Have you ever seen it at a Tuesday Morning store? Funny, but I had just been thinking about doing a tablescape in purple but don't have any great lavender/purple dishes. Thanks for sharing your beautiful table.

I just love those purple BP pieces, they are so unusual! Your table looks gorgeous with those beautiful potted tulips as a centerpiece.
