Tablescape Thursday

Oh, Dear Ones! I'm late! I'm late for a very important date! Tablescape Thursday!! Life has happened at my house and I just wasn't able to get my pictures ready until this afternoon. But thank you so much, Dear Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for being our Diva of Tablescapeing!

I know Easter is over, but I had to show you our Easter Sunday table! Forgive me again, I went a little bananas on loading so many picutures. I just love Tablescape Thursday so much!

The table was spread with a white damask tablecloth. I used my everyday Pfaltzgraff flatware and pink depression glasses.
I'm really getting into napkin folding and thought this looked sweet. This is called the Special Pocket fold. I tucked in a little baby's breath and an sweetly wrapped Easter chocolate! :)
Don't you love looking at the layers of dishes?
I poked a little ceramic egg into each Bordallo bowl! Now I wouldn't take a bite out of this lovely! I'm sure a trip to the dentist would be imperative! :)
Now we start breaking down the dish layers...after the egg...the cabbage leafed Bordallo bowl.
Oh, next my newest dish treasure - the dessert plate "Emma's Garden" by Spode - Ross!

Then my olden bunny plates by Bordallo. Don't they look great with Emma's Garden? I certainly thought so!
The Emma's Garden gorgeous chargers! I love these and can tell I'm going to be able to use these with many of my dishes! Oh, I'm so happy! :)
Here are my pink Depression glasses. I've used these many times, but love them. I really don't think the stemmed one is Depression glass, but I said it anyway. I didn't want to hurt her feelings! You know how it is when you're a dishaholic - you must be very kind to all of them!
Okay, I know my table looks like an Easter basket explded on it, so I'm going to just add some song titles to some of the following photos. I added little tea light candles to these little egg cups - I think "Mellow Yellow" works here! ;)
"Dizzy, I'm So Dizzy"
"Red Roses (Hydrangeas) For a Blue Lady"
"In Your Easter Bonnet"
"A Tisket, A Tasket"
"I'll Get By With a Little Help From My Friends"
"And Then He Kissed Me"

"You Lift Me Up!"
"I Only Have Eyes For You"
"Baby Love"
"Come On Baby Light My Fire" :)

"He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother"
"You've Got a Friend"
Now the sun was setting in the West and I lit all the little tea light candles!
I know, I go a little overboard! I just can't help myself!
Okie, Dokie, Dear Ones! This is my very late tablescape! Please go to visit our most Dear Susan to see many tablescapes that I'm sure were early and on time. ;)
I'm also joining Jan's Tea Party at Rose Haven. If you'd like to see my Tea Party, click on Jan's blog name! Pop over to see her and you can enjoy the parties!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll spare you a little Note Song today since I have you humming so many olden songs.
