Easter Dinner 2012


Oh!  This guy marched right into my heart!  He and his friend are made of natural dyed straw and I originally envisioned them used with burlap, but, since I have children coming for Easter Dinner, I thought I needed more color and whimsy.  

So, I added bright yellow and pale green to the mix.

The place setting turned out cheerful and springy.

I used these place mats....

and alternated them with these place mats.

I can never decide if these are supposed to be cabbages or lemons.  I used two yellow plates on the white place mats.

And used a white textured plate with the yellow salad plate on the yellow place mat.  

I'll serve a lemon pudding in these little green flower bowls from Michael's.

I bought these napkins at Target and the daffodil napkin rings are from Pottery Barn last spring. 

I alternated this bright yellow flatware with some pale green.

These etched green tumblers are from Walmart!

I chose this sweet little salt and pepper set simply because of the color.  They came from Michael's bridal department.

I took this shot before I added another seat for an additional guest.  Isn't that what holidays are all about?  Opening your table to friends and family.

The star of this table is the centerpiece.  I love the natural feel of these two rabbits.  Nothing here is fresh, because I needed to set the table several days ahead of time.  We're going to the Masters!!!!  (Imagine Linda doing her happy dance!)  This arrangement allowed me to come home at the last minute and have the table all ready.

Here's Peter.

Here's Floppsie.

Together they sit on moss squares waiting for the party.

I added these velvet birds, silk daffodils, and birch baskets filled with pastel jelly beans.

This bird had just the right colors to jump into the centerpiece in the nest.

Scattering these jelly beans around just seemed to soften things a bit.  Since I know two little boys who will love these, it will make it easier for them to snitch candy.  They may have these......they are sour!!!

I'm just hoping they will share the chocolate from their baskets.

There might be additional little presents.

I think I'll tuck a little something into these little boxes.  Who will get the carrots.......

and who will get the bunny?

  1. It looks to me like if you were to swap out Peter's daffodils for some golf clubs that HE would be on his way to the Masters, too!!! :-) He's really carrying that basket like a pro! I vote that the salad plates are "cabon" plates which is a cross of cabbages and lemons. It makes sense to me! (Of course, I've had a couple of glasses of pinot tonight, though!) :-) The napkins are beautiful...I love the soft, creamy yellow and the easy pattern. Have fun at the Masters, have a wonderful Easter weekend, and enjoy your dinner!

  10. I am in love with your Easter/Spring table and you have given me a great idea for mine. We aren't having our big dinner until this coming Saturday because so many of us were out of town Easter weekend visiting grand-children. Thank you for the inspiration. xoxo
