Easter table

These pictures aren't the best, but hey - at least I managed to post them fairly close to Easter!!

I chose a light purple tablecloth and then layered a "spring" colored smaller cloth on top. I found the smaller cloth while thrifting last year. I think it was about $2. It's closer to dish cloth size, but I liked it centered on the table. Purple sparkly chargers are first, then the dinner plates. The end places have light green plates and the four side places have glass purple plates. The green plates came from Ross about 2 summers ago. I've had the purple plates for a long time, so I don't know where they came from.

The napkins match the tablecloth. The napkin rings are super cute little bunnies. They are all different. Four of them were purchased (on sale of course) at HL. The others were a lucky thrifting find last year.

Love the carrot dishes?? Me, too! Found those at Pier One sometime in January. They were on clearance and I have no idea why!! Someone obviously wanted ME to have them!



The centerpiece is a fav birdcage. I use it in quite a bit of my "home decor". Sweet little bunnies, some Easter eggs and grass, a ribbon and purple candles are enough to set the mood.


SUPER cute s&p!! Also a great thrifty find last year. (Sorry for the photo. I didn't get a good shot while the table was actually set. I had to grab this one later.)

I had to keep this table fairly simple because we were actually going to serve the food on it. (Not a buffet as we sometimes do.)

That's it for the Easter table. Now, it's on to my next one. Here's a hint........


Here are my irises today!

The carrot plate is spectacular! And I love how you used purple and orange together with the green -- what a great color palette for Easter that's a little bit different. Your table is wonderful!
