    Wow, so many ideas! Beautiful post. We always have ambrosia salad as a side dish. My mother always thought the salad with the coconut was Easter like and we continue her tradition.

      Mary, you never disappoint with one beautiful post after another!!!
      Our family is of Eastern European descent and we have ham with kielbasa (always served cold) with a beet/horseradish on the side. My three sisters and I always make our favorite cookies to share for dessert!
      I love the bunny plates and thank you for the opportunity to possibly add them to my Easter tablescape in the future.
      Easter blessings to you and your family. 💐

      We love deviled eggs, baked ham, green beans with corn and potatoes, macaroni and cheese, rolls. I’ve shared on Pinterest and I am a newsletter chick. 🐤 lol 💚🐰🐇 Those plates are adorable! I absolutely love your postings 😊

    Gorgeous post Mary, I’m a happy follower and always ready to hop down the bunny trail with you! My favorite side for Easter has to be Deviled Eggs, it wouldn’t be Easter without them! Thank you for a chance to win these adorable plates, I’ve admired them on your beautiful tables!

      So beautiful…my favorite Easter side has got to be mashed potatoes with all sorts of fresh herbs picked from my container garden.

  4. April 11, 2019 at 7:35 am

    I made your bunny basked cupcakes last year and they were a favorite. I will make them again this year! We also have an Easter Cake with pastel layers and whipped cream. Love your photos. Happy Easter Lynn

    Love, love, love, your Easter ideas. I have made an Easter basket full of plants, tulips, and other spring flowers and also love to make your cabbage floral display. This is perhaps my favorite season for decorating my table. Thank you for the awesome ideas.

      We always have scalloped pineapple as a side for ham balls. Our favorite salad is lime jello with cottage cheese. We’re also going to have your layered salad. Last year I made your bunny bark. It was a huge success. Thank you.

  9. April 11, 2019 at 8:08 am

    Since seeing your Angel Food cake w/lemon curd filling and fruit (several years ago)..this has been a tradition in my family. It’s easy to do and I also make it for Birthday celebrations. When placed on a cake pedestal it makes a beautiful centerpiece for any occasion.

    Beautiful post and thrilled that Spring has arrived in NC. Here in Colorado the blizzard has passed out to surrounding states and we are left with the snow. We have leg of lamb, asparagus, deviled eggs and a lamb shaped cake for Easter. This meal is in honor of our Lord and Savior, the perfect lamb and sacrifice.

    Mary, your posts are a feast for the eyes!! Everything is just so beautiful and brings so much joy to my morning. I love your Spring Basket with the bulbs and green grass. I purchased the same basket at Home Goods and wlll try to replicate your creation. Our family always serves Deviled Eggs along with the ham. I also make an Italian Easter Pie and we serve Babka as well. Easter Blessings to you and your readers.

    I prepare a dessert platter with two types of homemade chocolate – dipped Easter eggs: butter creme and peanut butter; homemade decorated Easter cookies (bunnies, chicks, and eggs); jelly beans; and pastel M&Ms – and pastel M&M peanuts. All of these treats are placed on colorful Easter grass on the platter. A wooden bunny is situated in the center of the platter. Treats to please everyone! Happy Easter and blessings to your family~

    Beautiful Easter tablescapes. Our family loves deviled eggs. We also love cheesy potato casserole, but my favorite is a mandarin orange pineapple cake. It’s so simple to make and carry to Easter brunch. It always reminds me of spring.

  23. Brenda McCrary
    April 11, 2019 at 8:54 am

    My husband’s favorite spring side salad is a black-eyed pea salad. Easy to make and keeps well in the fridge. I’m an e-mail subscriber and I look forward to pinning a picture from this post. The hard part is deciding which picture to use!

  24. April 11, 2019 at 8:55 am

    Oh Mary, I love your blooming cabbage!! Don’t you love that Easter is late this year, it gives us so much more time to play! I do need some inspiration as I just found out I’m hosting a family party and egg hunt this year so I need to get hopping! The PB bunny plates are adorable. We never have the same thing around here, this year I am going to make a lemon cheesecake. Thanks for all the Easter cuteness!

  25. Lynne
    April 11, 2019 at 8:56 am

    We usually have roast lamb for Easter dinner with home made mint jelly pan roasted new potatoes and fresh asparagus from my daughter’s garden. Like to have small dinner rolls with this made by my grandaughter and Coconut cake for dessert. Making myself hungry.
    Have a wonderful Easter with your family.see

    I love all thing spring and Easter and your beautiful creations are high on my list. I pinned the photo of the tablescape using the lilac and pink tulip salad plates because tulips are my all time favorite flower and these by Fitz and Floyd (I’m pretty sure) are unbeatable. Thank you for all you do to keep your followers inspired and entertained.

  30. Maureen
    April 11, 2019 at 9:01 am

    Great post to revisit all of your Easter inspirations! We certainly have an Easter ham although my mom always had Spring lamb but my family won’t eat lamb. We also have Quiche as an appetizer, glazed carrots, baked potatoes, asparagus and whatever I feel like cooking! Happy Easter!

    I so enjoy reading your blog. My family has a strong Italian back ground. I still make the traditional Italian pies for Easter. There are 3 pies I usually make. One is a savory meat and cheese pie. The other two are sweet. One has rice in it and the other is a sweet custard type pie. It isn’t Easter without them!

  36. Amy Kaminski
    April 11, 2019 at 9:34 am

    Our favorite Easter side has to be Deviled Eggs. It’s the one everyone asks for. I also love Layered Salad. The cute little bunny cute-outs you added to your are adorable and I’ll do that this year. I didn’t pin one picture – I pinned this whole post because it’s so good!!! Thank you Mary!

  37. Lisa Johnson
    April 11, 2019 at 9:39 am

    As always, crazy inspired by your creativity. One of our favorite side dishes is Asparagus casserole, great with ham or lamb. Thank you

  38. Linda Haley
    April 11, 2019 at 9:45 am

    I love to serve carrot soufflé. I cut out 1/2 of the sugar from the original recipe so it’s more side dish than dessert. We get plenty of sugar from coconut cream pie! Your recipes look so tempting. I’m sure at least one will be on the menu! Happy Resurrection Day!!!

    We always start with a shrimp appetizer, then a ham with asparagus, lot of fruits!
    Love all your decorating ideas, I’ve used many of them for a great WOW table! Thank you.

    Happy Easter/Happy Spring! As always your post is a visual and creative gift. Almost as much fun is reading all the wonderful comments. I appreciate that there are many of us who would love to have those floral bunny plates hop our way. So please add my name to the list and I do subscribe by email. It is interesting to read what foods are special to everyone’s Easter table. It makes sense, but I was surprised by how many people mentioned deviled eggs, they have never been part of our Easter meal. But, like others we have ham and mashed potatoes and often asparagus with many other additional items. Next to the ham, a fresh fruit salad makes the meal for me. I wish you a very special Easter. MM

  56. April 11, 2019 at 10:27 am

    Pinned your adorable bunny and egg display and centerpiece and beautiful plaid tulip table!

    Beautiful, stunning photography as always. Thank you for always providing such wonderful inspiration! We enjoy English Pea salad, the freshest fruit we can find and deviled eggs as our side salads. Anything that invokes the freshness for our Easter dinner.

  63. April 11, 2019 at 10:54 am

    You totally inspire me, your decorations are over the top beautiful !! Our favorite Easter salad is the strawberry pretzel salad…sweet and salty😊😊. Thank you for sharing your beauties!!

  65. Rebecca Reavis
    April 11, 2019 at 11:18 am

    Beautiful arrangements and photos! Definitely my favorite side is deviled eggs. Yum!

  66. April 11, 2019 at 11:25 am

    Just beautiful! I’ve admired those sweet bunny dishes! Our family’s Easter favorites are all traditional Southern fare…honey glazed ham, potato salad and deviled eggs. Hummingbird cake is a must for dessert! Thank for the chance to win, I’m a follower and your blog is my favorite.

  67. April 11, 2019 at 11:27 am

  68. Jane Lund
    April 11, 2019 at 11:27 am

    I am not that great if a cook, so I pretty much stick to the traditional ham with side dishes of green bean casserole, cheesy potatoes or a scalloped potato, etc. since the grand kids, I’ll do Mac-n-cheese, they like that. Desert is usually carrot cake, lemon bars, something light, simple. Always tho, everyone gets a big chocolate bunny, & treats!! I do try to make it fun & pretty although no comparison to your tablescapes & food!! Thank you! Happy Easter!!

  69. Juanita Baker
    April 11, 2019 at 11:28 am

    Tunnel of fudge Angel Food Cake was a favorite and always asparagus for our vegetable. I love your idea of bunny peeps on sticks in your flower arrangement! And, seeing the cabbage plates paired with the bunnies is just too cute. Love all of your Easter decorating ideas.

    You post are always so beautiful and inspirational. Thank you for sharing your wonderful talents.

    What an Easter blessing! You are so sweet to offer this give-away. I’ll pass as there is no more room, so I’ll just enjoy looking at yours. A must have is cheesy potatoes and 5 cup salad (aka Ambrosia salad). Of course carrot cake is another great hit we like to have as well. Happy Easter! 🐑🐣🐇🌾

    Love all your Easter decor! Thank you for the chance to add the PB bunny plates to my decor. I always make deviled eggs and a macaroni salad with our Easter ham. Dessert is usually a cool refrigerator dessert in a lemon flavor. When my daughter was young, I’d make a bunny cake, using a single round layer for the head, and another round layer to cut ears and a bow tie. I’d decorate it with frosting, white coconut for head, pink tinted coconut for inside of the ears and the bow tie, candies for eyes and nose, and black licorice strings for whiskers. May your Easter be blessed!

    Our best at Easter is deviled eggs, I think that is because we are boiling so many eggs, Might as well make something yummy. Of coarse I pinned, Of all my pins yours are the ones most often re pinned. Of coarse I would love, love those plates but most of all I want to take out a few moments to thank you. My husband had a stroke. He is doing better but life has been hard. Your post, your sharing of beauty has helped me so much to keep my head above water. Through your righting and sharing garden beauty I had this spring to look forward to. I am busy planting, and getting soil ready and hubby is helping the best he can.
    You are helping so many people, you probably do not even know how important your posts are. So I thank you.

    My family LOVES deviled eggs with our Easter meal (or any other meal, LOL). I like to serve broccoli rice casserole and my favorite lemon cream cheese coffee cake drizzled with white icing glaze. I love your Easter table and decor! Thank you for the chance to win the darling plates. :)

    Oops! I forgot to tell you our favorite Easter side dish. We actually have two that we love with baked ham. They are homemade baked beans and potato salad. I’m making myself hungry just thinking about it.

  96. April 11, 2019 at 3:34 pm

    I just want to “hop” right into that table! Deviled eggs are always a favorite. I especially liked it when I was a kid and we would dye eggs, then my mom would make deviled eggs from those. Sometimes a little bit of the dye color would end up in the whites which made them even more special. I love reading all the comments here and other peoples’ favorites. I think carrot cake is genius!

I still continue traditions from my Slavik grandparents. Homemade pieroghi, poppyseed and nut rolls are present along side the ham,deviled eggs and scalloped potatoes. Easter is my favorite holiday!

    I’ve been putting together your Peeps Easter centerpiece for the last few years,

    For Sunday dinner it’s usually lamb, a layered salad and more, and shortbread cookies for dessert.

    Your posts are always beautiful and inspirational! As a retired teacher I appreciate your clear directions and detailed posts!

    Mary, You never cease to amaze me with beautiful tables, blooming flowers and creative festive recipes. Thank you for your constant inspiration. One of our family favorite side dishes in the spring are deviled eggs, served on a platter handed down to me for three generations.

    Beautiful Easter tablescape! One of my family’s favorite Easter brunch dishes is Paula Deen’s Baked French Toast Casserole. However, I’ve learned to cut the amount of butter in half for the Praline topping! The original recipe calls for A LOT of butter!

    Our favorite sides are 7 Layer Salad, home grown asparagus and cheesy potatoes with smoked lamb. My mother always made Sunny Silver Pies, which were beautifully bright yellow from the freshly gathered eggs. Now I make them for the dinner. Your pictures are so beautiful and cheery, always inspiring for the season.

    Mary, I was scrolling through all your Easter posts and thinking, How does she do it so wonderfully all the time? Truly, each post is delightful.
    Great giveaway!
    It has been a very long time since I’ve hosted an Easter Sunday meal. My kids live away and we usually go to our small town Country Club for Easter brunch after church as a couple or if our kids are here. Our longtime friends do also and we enjoy seeing their visiting children and grandchildren. I grew up with my mother doing traditional turkey or ham and cornbread dressing and southern sides. It was always delicious.
    I hope you have a wonderful Easter. We are traveling to our daughters home for Easter this year.

    I love all of your beautiful table settings! I remember my Grandmother always had banana pudding for Easter.

  118. April 11, 2019 at 11:10 pm

    I usually serve a Spiral Sliced Ham, an asparagus puff pastry with herb cheese,and my Strawberry, Cream Cheese and Grand Marnier Roll for dessert. This year my sister-in-law is bringing Scalloped Potatoes, and my daughter is making a birthday cake for her four year old nephews who will be joining us for Easter. I have loved the way you use the Pottery Barn plates in many of your table settings! After seeing yours, I will add some deviled eggs to my six flowered egg cups and put them in the center of the platter that will hold enough for 30+ folks who will be coming to Easter dinner.

    So much inspiration here Mary I’m blown away! I love all your creative ideas and tables! I’m a longtime follower who found you via Pinterest and I’m so glad I did. I have to share my condolences on the loss of your sweet Gracie. We lost our Maltipoo, Lily, back in December so I know what you’re going through.

    Some of our family’s spring or Easter favorites are an asparagus salad to go with our honey baked ham, hash brown casserole and deviled eggs! Thank you for the giveaway, love those sweet plates! Beverly

    I am a recent subscriber and was inspired by your cabbage floral centerpiece. It was so much fun to recreate with small green mums, yellow spider mums, pink carnations and stalks of Bells of Ireland. Our Easter brunch is ham, Pacific Lime jello salad (cottage cheese, pineapple, mayo and walnuts), spinach pie and of course, deviled eggs 😋
