Home is Where the Boat Is

Easter’s on its Way Table: Plaid, Bunnies, Eggs and Tulips!

Sprung has sprung in our neck of the woods with temperatures in the 70s and 80s this week! With warmer weather comes porch and outdoor dining and thoughts of flowers, bunnies and eggs with Easter less than two weeks away!

I pulled out my wedding china, Fitz & Floyd Classique d’Or, chosen 32 years ago. Coordinating Tulipe d’Or salad plates and mugs with their vibrant blooms are ready for an Easter parade of pastels, paired with a plaid Tommy Hilfiger tablecloth from HomeGoods, as a foundation for the table.

I set the table two ways, playing with flowers and dishes for a little Easter fun. The first way was with a centerpiece of tulips in a vase with jelly beans that look like speckled eggs, minus their PEEPS. Hop over here for a peep :) and an easy and edible centerpiece!

The bunnies were the inspiration for the Easter table. The tall dapper bunny, dressed in his pastel foil Easter finery~ ascot, coat and vest, was found at HomeGoods, resembling chocolate but calorie free. :)

The four smaller bunnies were at Hobby Lobby and 40% off.

Just for fun, I removed the vase and spread the bunnies and eggs down the runner in the middle of the table.  Jelly beans went into tall, delicate flutes at each place setting, part of my mother-in-law’s wedding crystal pattern, chosen 60+ years ago.

 I found gold foil chick and bunny eggs on an Easter egg hunt hiding on the aisle at HomeGoods last year. They hopped in my cart to pair with my Tulipe d’Or pattern with plans for an Easter table.

Tulips from the centerpiece were moved to the mugs as a vase at each place setting.
