Since our family had to leave a day early, it will just be Mr. Pressed Pants and me for breakfast on Easter morning. We'll probably go to sunrise service for church tomorrow, so I'm setting the table today in the breakfast room, and keeping it simple.
I settled on green and white with lavender accents and simple dishes that can all be thrown in the dishwasher as we leave.
I combined my two favorite Majolica patterns here. The green bunny plates and bowls are Pinero, from Portugal, and the white wicker-like chargers are also from Portugal, but have no other markings.
This very simple ceramic cube is filled with white and lavender flowers from the yard. The white azaleas are at the very end of their bloom time. I added some columbine and some pincushion flowers and trimmed it out with verigated hosta leaves.
Here's an overhead shot. Please disregard the brown spot on the azalea! Pretend you don't see that! Ok?
The glassware is from World Market and is just simple lavender glass with clear stems. They are thin, but not at all precious.
I found these lavender linen napkins from BBJ Linens, and they are great! They hardly need ironing, and have such body, they feel as if they have been lightly starched. The little white wooden bunny napkin ring is very old and has seen lots and lots of Easter meals with our family.
This flatware from World Market is about a year old, but you can still buy it there in several colors.
The little butter pat dish is really an oriental sauce dish, also from World Market. I placed a fresh pansy on top of the butter. Our pansies are about to be pulled out and thrown away, because they just can't tolerate our hot summers, but bloom for us all winter long.
Hey, Sandra and Jim......we're almost out of this delicious peach jam you gave us for Christmas. Just saying!
The Southeastern Flower Show has the best stuff at the market place, and that's where I got these salt and pepper shakers. I'm sad that they didn't hold the show this year. After volunteering there for many years, it seems like such a shame to miss it.
I'm ready to celebrate our most Holy Day of Easter. I'm ready in many ways for the Renewal!
Thank you to our favorite sister-in-law for never forgetting us on any special occassion.
Now! I'm going to watch the third day of the Masters Golf Tournament. We were so lucky to attend the first day of competition, and that makes it so special to watch the tv coverage. I'm rooting for Freddy Couples. Grey hair rules!
