Happy Easter to you all!!!!!!
Our family has been visiting with us all week from Ohio, and even though the weather wasn't that great, the love and fun sure were!!! Since they just left yesterday, we are having a very laid back Easter Sunday and there will just be the two of us for dinner tonight.
This unusual egg topiary caught my eye at the floral wholesaler, and I planned a soft, almost neutral table to go with it.
These latex cabbage leaves are perfect for adding a spring look, so I used them under the chargers.
I picked up the brown and soft green from the eggs on the topiary with these linens. I layered this polyester dupiani over a natural burlap tablecloth.
Then I chose tan and cream plates and cream handled flatware.
The scalloped charger and salad plate are from Z Gallerie and the middle, toast colored plate is from that fine tabletop store, Kroger! The scallops aren't exactly the same, but they complement each other.
Not a lot of color, but very soothing and natural.
See the feather ribbon I used as a napkin ring?
It has the same feathers in the centerpiece. I was sort of surprised when I found it in my stash, to be truthful. A happy coincidence!
I gave brown and green glasses a try, but they made things look too fall-like, so I brought out the Waterford and it seemed so much better.
These candlesticks aren't old, but I love the patina on them, even though it's a factory applied patina, not the kind you would find on a lovely antique.
These good old salt and pepper shakers were the only accessories I added, since I'll be serving our plates from the kitchen.
It's a gloomy day! Here's a shot from inside the window at this table. (Part of the gloom is the fact that our sunshine went back to Ohio with their mothers yesterday!) Maybe that's one reason I chose such a subdued palate for tonight's dinner.
This is my usual Easter table. See more of this table here.
And last year I did a bright yellow and green table. See more here.
At this same table, I served Easter breakfast here.
I'm wishing each of you who celebrate this holy season a wonderful day!
