Easter Dinner Tablescape

Its time to do the weekly tour of Blogland and have a seat at some of the most beautifully decorated tables around.  Our tour guide is Susan from Between Naps on the Porch and we send our thanks to her for hosting Tablescape Thursdays.

I'm going to show you what I have planned for my Easter table this year. Our son and daughter will be home and we will also be having my parents over for dinner on Sunday.


Last summer, I got this tablecloth for $5 in the clearance section of Home Sense.  Of course, I bought two! See the bunny pattern. 


My pink bunny (Home Sense) nestled in a basket of faux grasses makes a coordinating centerpiece for the colours of the tablecloth.


I tucked in some faux hydrangeas and plastic eggs.


On each side of the centerpiece, I placed some Partylite candleholders filled with eggs, a green taper candle in a glass holder and a little white birdie.


This is a closer look at the same set up on the opposite side of the table.

 


I used Sundae cups filled with Easter grass and a plastic egg as placecard holders.

Unfortunately, I only have 4 of the above Sundae cups so used some of this green plastic set as well.


This is how it all came together.



I've used these same dishes so many times. (Canadian Superstore years ago) They are just the best shade of green and yellow for Spring.
The green handled flatware was an inexpensive variety found at a local drugstore (Pharmasave) in the gift section.




The plastic eggs are filled with chocolates as a treat for my guests.


This is how the table will look as night falls and we linger over dinner.








Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a Blessed Easter and are able to celebrate at church and later, sitting with family and friends around your table. 

Alleluia, He is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!

You have used some basic materials so creatively in this tablescape. And you clearly know a bargain, with the bunny tablecloth and the green-handled sliverware. Perfect combinations. I believe my favorite is the candy inside the egg! :-) Blessed Easter to you.

Your Easter table is soooo pretty. I looked at all your other Easter delights and they are also gorgeous. I can't honestly say I have a favorite cuz it's all so pretty but I must say that your bargain tablecloth and partylite taper candle holders are definitely stand outs to me. Thanks for stopping over for a visit...I do enjoy your comments. Happy Easter to you and yours.
