I didn't get a chance to share my Spring Easter table...too much going on at the time to get my post finished. I wanted a natural look for my table and got a lot of inspiration from Pottery Barn.
What's not to love about bunnies, burlap and twig chargers?
I know PB can be a little pricey if you are buying everything for your table all at once.
I am all about getting a look for a lot less. I made my own burlap runner a few seasons ago and have used it for several tables. So inexpensive!
The hydrangeas were from the grocery store and were less than $10.
The twig chargers were on sale last fall at Pier One when I purchased them.
I think they are one of my best finds...
I use them a lot!
The placemats were given to me by a sweet friend as she knows
I love pretty table linens.
They are April Cornell and the
pattern has soft yellow, blue and green hues. They had just the right amount of color I needed to go with
The china was given to me by my grandma when I got married 35 years ago. The pattern is Brentwood by Franciscan. I love the color but the pattern is outdated looking to me.
That's where dish layering saves the day...getting a whole new look with the same old dishes!
The french Gien desert/salad plates look perfect sitting on top of the Brentwood dinner plates. The Gien plates were one of the best bargains I've ever found at Goodwill.
Next I placed one of the Godinger bread and butter plates that are the palest blue color.
Both of these patterns were found at Goodwill for an amazing price. When I looked up Gien china on the internet I was shocked by the price!
Finally the Pottery Barn egg cloche to complete the setting. I did manage to get 2 of the cloches. They have sold out for this year...I got mine on clearance with free shipping!! Can't beat $5.99 a piece. I do hope I can find a few more..they are adorable and I have a thing for eggs cups.
Since I set my table for four I also used two of the handled soup bowls from my Franciscan china to finish two of the settings. I think they are so cute with the tiny little handles. I have used these for fruit bowls as well.
Finished table with all my
My old collection of bunnies hopped right onto the table. I have had this big rabbit for 20 plus years. He is one of my favorites.
The smaller blue and white bunnies were gifts from my Mom and my hubbie. I snuggled them in the burlap and put some willow twigs along the runner and added a few blue eggs.
The centerpiece was simply made with three hydrangeas from the grocery store ( since mine weren't in bloom at the time) and a leftover lime green rose from another arrangement I had.
I wrapped some moss ribbon around the base of the vase to give a natural look.
A few votive candles and my table was ready for Easter dinner with my family.
Even though this was an Easter table I think it would be nice for any
