    Hi Mary, Your little postcards are so sweet and the table is gorgeous for a beautiful Spring morning. I am wondering if the deer make it down to your lake to feast on your colorful azaleas or if the bunnies are your primary destroyers of flowers? I’m worried that my azaleas may not bloom this year due to feasting by winter wildlife. I love your pink ones and the pop of color they bring to the table. Linda

    Mary, you always have the most amazing food items that are holiday or celebration themed to go with your tables! Love! Where do you get them all and do you and the hubby actually eat all that yummy goodness or are there little people in your neighborhood who reap the benefits of your shopping skills? :-)

  6. April 17, 2014 at 8:06 am

    Happy Easter to you! Beautiful Easter inspiration!

  7. April 17, 2014 at 8:20 am

    Oh Mary, I love your romantic china pattern! The tiered tray makes for a sweet centerpiece, for visual and edible purposes! Happy Easter blessings to you. xo

    Thanks Suzi! I share, my hubby takes a lot of treats to the office :) Happy Easter!

    This is such a beautiful table!!! Never thought of using azalea blooms on the table before – now I will. Love the chocolate bars. So pretty!

  11. April 17, 2014 at 8:35 am

    Thanks Linda! We rarely see deer surprisingly. I’ve only seen them make they way to the water once by field that meets the edge of the lake where my potting shed is now. Squirrels do the most damage, digging in my pots, eating bulbs and chewing on our chairs :)

  12. April 17, 2014 at 9:21 am

    It’s good to see you outside by the lake again. Your table is a delight, and I especially like how you filled the cupcake stand with wonderful things. Happy Easter Mary.

    I am adoring your Easter! So sweet. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    Oh, to be out by the lake again. Our spring has been slow as well, with much cooler days again recently. I think my garden likes it. The iris have never been so happy. And that makes me happy!
    Your table setting looks as fresh as springtime, Mary. The Limoges dishes remind me of my mother’s and aunt’s pink floral china and also my mother-in-law’s too. Is the Limoges a family heirloom?
    Clever to use the cupcake stand as a centerpiece. I have one like it, so need to following your inspiration and use mine like this too. We are going out for Easter brunch, but I plan to take flowers for the table and a little something for each place setting. I’ll drop them off on Saturday so the table will be ready for our group when we arrive. Nice that the owner of the restaurant is a good friend. ;-)
    Happy Easter to you and your husband and your girls. Sadie sends Chloe and Gracie a special greeting, too. ~ Sarah

    Beautiful post Mary. It’s always a joy to see your table by the water. How calming. Great use of your cupcake stand and so many cute Easter cards and candies. Enjoy time with your family.

    I love your table setting – Especially the tiered centerpiece! It’s such a creative alternative to the usual flower arrangement. I might have to steal an idea or two for my table! As always, thanks for the ideas! Hope you, and your family, have a Blessed Easter – <3

    Oh Mary, everything is so very lovely. I love the three tiered tray – looks great as a center piece. So glad to see you by the lake again. Bet the girls are happy that the weather is nicer for them.
    Happy Easter to you all. Love the pretty pink rose dishes.

    You always create the most exquisite tables. That centerpiece is just perfect and is delightful to the eye and tempting to the palate! I always love the view across the water – it makes me feel like the weather is returning to beautiful! Have a wonderful Easter!

    Absolutely gorgeous, thanks for the share.

  29. April 18, 2014 at 11:01 am

    Super smart and pretty centerpiece! Why not make the centerpiece one that is not only attractive but serves an actual purpose: dessert cart!

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Glad Spring is finally making its way to you. It’s been slow to get here, too. I hope that you and yours enjoy a peaceful, beautiful, blessed Easter weekend!

    Love love the eggs cups of azaleas at your so soft in the garden Easter table! Your tiered stand makes such a tempting chocolate buffet, so cute styled with the cups, eggs and vintage chocolates~ I would love to sit there nibbling on your beautiful tea sandwiches, deviled eggs and carrot cupcakes!

    So many beautiful details!! It will take me several looks to take them all in. I am loving all the vintage goodies!

    I have to ask about the botanic garden flatware! I purchased dessert forks and spoons in that style and now I’m tempted to buy the flatware set as well. I know they are quite large but how do they hold up? Do they scratch easily and become not so pretty after a while? I’d love your advice! Beautiful blog!

  34. August 14, 2014 at 6:29 pm

    Hi Ella, I alternate flatware patterns so I don’t use it for everyday but so far it’s held up well. It’s good quality and very heavy.

Thanks for your comments~ they make my day :)
