I must say the postings for Easter tables are just amazing. I love to comment, (I never have been one to keep an opinion to myself) but I am running out of adjectives. They are all so beautiful and elegant and special. I am just in awe of what bloggerland folks can do.
So I opened my "April" box, got out whatever I could find that looked like spring and started setting the table. After a couple of not so successful attempts I settled on a few of my favorite things.
I sort of went with a yellow theme since it started out a bright, sunny day this morning.
I changed the wine glasses before dinner. I only have two of these, one green and one yellow so it seemed just perfect.
Placemats and napkins from Marshalls last year;
Yellow octagon dishes are Independence Ironstone I've had since 1972 or so and just unpacked recently;
Plates are Mikasa Intaglio Country Garden (I really like these and use them alot in spring and summer);
Little square plates, can't remember but they are perfectly pastel for spring;
Candle holders are from the dollar store;
Smaller glasses are Lenox Tuscany Seasons from a few years ago (I found some wine glasses to match on Ebay);
Yellow tulip goblets came from a dish exchange long ago;
the cylamen came from my mother-in-law and I could not resist using it for a little pop; and,
the bowl is a piece of depression glass I've had a long time.
Don't, worry I'll celebrate Easter on the right weekend - I'm not a total heathen!!
Thanks to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting Tablescape Thursday. and to everyone out there in blogland who so generously share their talents and photos.
Oh, can anyone tell me that the 'labels' at the bottom of the screen you post on is for? I can't figure it out!!
Thanks for looking and happy spring/Easter.
