Eastertime Tablescape




Today’s tablescape has a green and pastel color scheme in honor of spring and the Easter season. On a pale pink tablecloth I began with green ceramic chargers by Lenox -- "Summer Terrace," a majolica style pattern of vines and raised ridges, made in Portugal.

Next came dinner plates in vintage "Edme" by Wedgwood, creamy porcelain with starburst ridge pattern on plates that echo the ridged border of the chargers.

A green Bordallo Pinheiro "cabbage" dessert plate was topped with "Edme" cream soups and saucers.

Pale green 11.5 oz. goblets are Libbey DuraTuff/ Rock Sharpe "Gibraltar." They have an attractive panelled bowl design.

Flatware is Towle Supreme Stainless "English Shell." The setting is completed with "Edme" bread and butter plates with individual butter spreaders.

Napkins in yellow under deep pink are held in porcelain flower napkin rings. [Mimi's comment just reminded me of the flower name -- calla lilies! ]

The full place setting:

The centerpiece is a grouping of two bunnies (the larger one holding fresh yellow flowers), a pair of oval boxes decorated in pink and yellow and three pale yellow pillar candles.

Both bunnies are accented in pink:



Thrift shops provided several items for today’s tablesetting. For a total cost was just $3.25 I found a vintage cream soup and stand, 3 dinner plates and 3 bread and butter plates in the Wedgwood Queensware "Edme" pattern.
3 pale green Libbey DuraTuff/ Rock Sharpe "Gibraltar"goblets cost $2.00.
The pink and yellow napkins were 25 cents each and the pink tablecloth was 75 cents. The yellow oval baking dish under the bunny cost 25 cents. The pillar candles were found in a consignment shop. Both bunnies are also thrift store finds.

You can't go wrong with a green and white table with a hint of pink, just lovely. The calla lily napkin holders are adorable.

I am always amazed at gorgeous tablescapes like yours. I think I am missing the gene for putting things together and having it work so well. I especially love the green majolica.

Katherine,
I found the napkin rings on Ebay. I got a dozen of them for just about a dollar per ring.

Carrie,
I love your pretty green plates and they work so well mixed with the white ones! I’ve been keeping my eyes open for a similar set for myself at a good price. They really look great dressed for an Easter table!

Carrie,
I love the table setting with the cute bunnies. I think the thrift stores in your area must have better finds than here (the grass is always greener?!)...monah
