Talk about lollygagging around! With only four more days before Easter I thought it was high time I posted my Easter tablescape. A while back when I posted my Easter inspiration boards I included lots of pastels and polka dots. The pastels made it to the main table, and I’m saving the polka dots for the dessert table. Once again I’ll be faced with the challenge of not overdoing the sweet treats.
I used a bright ivory tablecloth as the base and a dusty pink one for an overlay. I used a simple square fold on the white napkins and wrapped them and the forks with purple ribbon. One of the ones shown here is hiding a hideous lipstick stain, which I’ve yet to find out how to remove.
It was truly my lucky day when I scored the lavender chargers at Michaels for .19 cents each. Initially I was only going to use the white dinner plates, mixed and matched with white and clear dessert plates. However, the lavender and bright green melamine plates asked if they could join the party and who am I to say no!
I am head over heels in love with the beaded dessert forks and I have a cake knife to match them. The white tapas plates are another grocery store find, .79 for a pack of four. What a deal!

Purposely I’ve stayed away from my favorite thrift stores lately. Thankfully the stemware that I have in my stash also goes with most everything.
We’ve practiced lots of restraint by not picking out the jelly beans from these cylindrical tea light holders. The top portion of the centerpiece is an oversized pedestal candy dish that is filled with plastic eggs, silk flowers and a couple of bunny picks. The bottom part is a cake stand filled in with flowers and ceramic painted eggs.
I always have to laugh whenever I call the tall bunny people into service. I think they’re cute, daughter Samara cringes every time she sees them. At the same time and place that I found the teapot, I also found the mini cloche. Under it is moss with painted plastic eggs and some jelly beans.
The painted ceramic eggs are not only cute they are loaded with sentimental value. They were a gift from my sister-in-law Ann who passed away a year and a half ago. She doted on her nieces and nephews. At Easter she came bearing gifts for them just as she did at Christmas. As much as I love acquiring new pieces, the ones that have been gifted and handed down are truly treasured.
Wishing you a peaceful, delicious and Happy Easter.
