I’m joining Susan’s Tablescape Thursday party.
This is my grandmother’s china, you may remember seeing here. It is Harvest Time by Johnson Brothers. I was inspired to bring it into spring time, when I ran across these striped placemats at Home Goods, a few months ago, that tied the pink together with the brown. I added som egg cups, flowers, and Easter goodies to help with the transformation.
These glittery “Easter Greetings” postcards are available at World Market.
I pulled this bunny, that normally functions as a bookend, over to the table. I love his distressed finish (I’m pretty sure it’s a him :-)
This stemware I’ve had for ages. . . I don’t remember the manufacturer, it came assorted in 4 colors. I love the bubbles in it.
This “chocolate” egg wreath was at A.C. Moore this spring.
History.com has this to say:
“The Easter bunny first arrived in America in the 1700s with German immigrants who settled in Pennsylvania and transported their tradition of an egg-laying hare called “Osterhase” or “Oschter Haws.” Their children made nests in which this creature could lay its colored eggs. Eventually, the custom spread across the U.S. and the fabled rabbit’s Easter morning deliveries expanded to include chocolate and other types of candy and gifts, while decorated baskets replaced nests.”

These plum tree blossoms have been so pretty this spring . . . especially since not much else is blooming yet in my neck of the woods. I actually stole pruned these from a tree in the parking lot at Walgreens . . . do you have pruning shears in your car too?
I love the vintage-graphics on these reproduction postcards.
These ivy-printed napkins came in a 4-pack at Home Goods ($9.99!) and are Ralph Lauren. . . I’m on the lookout for another 4-pk!
These malted eggs are calling my name, but so far I have resisted temptation :-)
These flowers were in a bouquet at Trader Joe’s–they have the best looking fresh and seasonal flowers at great prices, if there is one near you.
