Easter Table

With Easter less than one week away, I thought it was time to start thinking about the set-up for my Easter dinner table.   When I start a decorating project, I don’t have a clear idea of how it will turn out.  I start with one specific item or idea and it becomes a work in progress!

I decided to use white dinner plates and the smaller antique plates as a salad plate.

An adorable porcelain bunny on an antique green depression glass cake plate will serve as the centerpiece.  Since I am using white as the base color for the table setting, I decided not to use a tablecloth or place mats.  I like the contrast between the white dishes and decorations and the wood table and burlap table runner.

Four milk glass chicks will join the bunny.

I made the burlap table runner.  It is reversible with burlap on one side and a calico checked print fabric on the other side.

The silver belonged to my husband’s great-grandmother.  Richard and Edith Trigger lived on the farm on Grange Hall Road where we now live.  The crystal glasses belonged to my dear mother-in-law.

Each piece of the silver is engraved with “T” for Trigger.  This set is over 100 years and is in impeccable condition.

I needed a bit more color and then I remembered I had these colorful wooden eggs!  As I said, my decorating style is a constant work in progress!!

It’s getting there!  If you look closely, I believe you can see Murray in the background lounging in his chair and Baxter resting on the floor beside the chair.  I still need to decide on the napkins, maybe bright yellow or pink!  I would really like to use flowers as part of the table decorations.  But I have a cantankerous cat who finds fresh flowers quite irresistible.  I now have a good idea of how the table will look.  Of course, I will need to add more seating as both of my sons, their wives, and grandchildren will be joining Murray and I for Easter dinner.  It will be a glorious day attending Church, an Easter egg hunt at Church, dinner with the family, another Easter egg hunt, and celebrating my oldest granddaughter, Lainey’s 11th birthday.  We are truly blessed.
