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.

Spring Tablescape


We have had some really nice spring weather mixed in with some really, really rainy weather. We do need the moisture, but not day after day!


Back a few months ago I found two of the same pattern April Cornell tablecloths at Savers, but different sizes. The colors are perfect for spring so I have used the smaller of the two for this table with solid pink napkins.




Even longer ago the salad/dessert plates were found at the same Savers. They were originally from Pier One...pricey little plates, at $11.95,each, back when they first came out in 2011/2012. The pattern is Antoinette.  I paid considerably less for 4 plates than the original price of one plate! I paired them with the Pier One white wood charger, white dinner and light green luncheon plate, both Bordallo Pinheiro. For something fun, I used mini pedestal cupcake holders for the rolls. The stemware is from Tuesday Morning a few years ago. The flatware is Oneida Afterglow sterling from 1956.











The centerpiece is a pair of lime green ceramic candlesticks from Goodwill, a small pedestal with a BP luncheon plate, tiny green vase, green rabbit and some faux eggs.

Thanks for taking the time to visit today...hope you will return next time.

St. Patrick's Day Tablescape


Another St. Patrick's Day is sneaking up on us! I am sure you have seen all the dishes in this post many times...but they are the best green I own! I think the only thing new is the tabletopper.










Thanks for visiting today, hope you will return next time.

Happy St. Paddie's Day!
