Little Easter Table

Hello Dear Ones!
Well, I'm seeing and hearing you all have had a wonderful Easter!
We did too, just Mr. Precious, Mother and me. 
Oh, and of course my little doggy, Chloe Dawn. :)


 Thought I would show you the table I set for us in the breakfast room.

 I used my Butterfly Meadows china made by Lenox. 

 Swirly Pinky glasses I purchased from a thrift shop a long time ago.

 Every one got a little tiny plastic eggy in the teeny little bowl.
I'm so talented like this you know!

Poked down three of my favorite napkin rings and slipped a Battenburg napkin through it.

 Then each place setting got its own tiny little salt and peppers (without the salt and pepper).
I found these little darlings years ago at Cracker Barrel.

 The stash on my Easter table just kept on growing.
I added three of these lidded footed eggies! :)
Cute as buttons!

 Now on to my centerpiece.
I found the vase that goes with my dishes at Home Goods a few years ago
and poked in some fauxs! 
I love my fauxs. I know you're not surprised at that.

 Now look really close with your most gorgeous peepers and you'll see a little raised butterfly.
Very appropriate, right?

I must tell you, I could not stop poking things down on my table.
See that little darling bunny? 
I won that through a giveaway from my friend Miss Janice.
Also got a lovely little bowl too and they are both from the Butterfly Gardens collection.

 Now everyone needs a honey pot on their Easter tables don't you think?

 More bunnies. This little gal thinks she is the "It" bunny. 
Little stinker.
You'll notice the real salt and peppers that are filled to the rim with salt and pepper.


 The backside of the "It" bunny.
Well, she does have a cute figure. :)


This is my favorite piece from my Butterfly Gardens dishes.
The egg dish. 
Isn't it pretty? Now don't be alarmed ~ there are lady bugs all over it!
I have forbade them to get into the deviled eggs.

 There's one!
Oh, no, don't bother her, she just looks cute and won't harm anything.
Really. ;)


 Here's the lovely veggie bowl.

 Rimmed with lovely words and filled almost to the rim with potato salad.


There's my tiny table filled with Eastery stuff.
Mother used to help me so much and just cook her little head off.
Now that's she's 88, I've let her off the hook! :)
I told her she's cooked for me all of my life now it's time I wait on her.
I'm such a wonderful daughter like that! :)
I just wanted to remind you.
Our menu was rather simple and I liked that:
Deviled Eggs
Garden Salad
Potato Salad, I know two salads
Yeast Rolls and Butter
Baked Ham
Cherry Pie with a scoop of Ice Cream on the side :)


Pin It



Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Solid Potato Salad

Some folks like there 'taters Lyonnaise,Some prefer French fries,But I like mine fixed with mayonnaise,Coleslaw on the side. Solid potato salad,That's solid salad, Jack!Solid potato salad, boy,Take a plate, fill it up, bring it right back! Solid potato salad,And let's have no "yak-yak!".Solid potato salad, boy,Take a plate, fill it up, bring it right back! The farmer said to the spud,"You're skin looks mighty pallid,So I'll dig you later, bud,For some solid - poatao salad!". Solid potato salad,That's solid salad, Jack!Solid potato salad, boy,Take a plate, fill it up and bring it right back! Take a plate, fill it up and bring it right back! Take a plate, fill it up and bring it right back! Take a plate, fill it up and bring it right back!

  27. Shelia,
    Your tablescape is gorgeous!!! I adore how you placed the plates off to the side so we could see all the patterns! My love with bunnies had me sighing over each one on your table...but what caught my heart was the honey pot! So glad your Mother is still able to come enjoy lunch with you...You, truly, are the "Apple" of her eye!!!
    Fondly,
    Pat
