Eggs On Top Tablescape

My Easter tablescape features an egg wreath that is now a centerpiece, my Noritake Azalea China and some Fitz and Floyd Easter pieces.


I bought the egg wreath a few years ago and even though it has a hanger on the back, I always felt it was too heavy for the door. I like it on the table and think it makes a great centerpiece. It is sitting on a cake stand with the pink pillar candle.



I love my Azalea China. It has been in my family for three generations and will get passed on to my daughter then to her children to make five generations owning it. The collection started with my Grandmother who bought pieces from the Larkin Company using premiums from laundry detergent in the 1930s. I remember eating chicken and dumplings and home-made rolls on the China. She was such a cook!!



The Fitz and Floyd rabbits in the picture below are from the Woodland Spring Collection. I'll show you more pieces in another post.




The rabbit teapot and salt and pepper shakers below are Fitz and Floyd Botanical Collection. They are such delicate pieces, I try to be so careful with their ears. 


I like how my table looks so symmetrical in the shot below. (I saw someone take a shot like this one and was impressed so I want to give it a try.)


I owe a special "thank you" to my good friend JoAnn over at Jo's This and That for making the pink tablerunner and napkins. I found the fabric close to 30 years ago, put it away and kind of forgot about it. Then one Sunday a few weeks ago, I started thinking about the fabric and thought how stunning it would look with my Azalea dishes but had no clue where it might be since I have moved several times. Well, I found it in a closet in perfect condition. I knew Jo had a serger that could make a nice edge. I mailed Jo the fabric and she was so sweet to make the runner and napkins.


My husband bought the Wm. Rogers and Son Gold Plated Enchanted Rose Flatware set one Saturday when we were living in Cape Girardeau. He came home from a little shop and surprised me with the set. Such a sweetie!!  


The pink stemware is Fostoria Heritage.  




I wanted you to notice the Azalea cake plate in the lower left corner of the image above. It is such a pretty piece. I have many other pieces of the Azalea so maybe another post sometime will give me a chance to share them with you. 

Thanks for stopping by to see my Eggs On Top - Judy.

  8. Beautiful!
    I also have pieces of this china from my Grandmother/Great-grandmother. My Grandmother was a Larkin lady. A lot of their household items were Larkin. I have dishes and furniture that belonged to them. I have their Jadite passed down to me, too.

This, however, just TOOK that breath clean away!!!!!!! This is beautiful! Stunning! Magnificent! Gorgeous! ALL those adjectives and more! I love pink so much, but it's not so much even that as just the fact that it is so well put together! I love the way you extended the centerpiece with the repeated bunny elements. I LOVE the way you used that egg wreath! THAT, my dear, is GENIUS!!!!! And your china is SO pretty! Bravo a hundred times over!!!!!!!!

  38. Very pretty! I have a similar egg wreath which I never hang on the door either. Yours looks wonderful and I like how you dressed it up with the greenery, etc. Your dishes are perfectly coordinated with the lovely table linens, how kind of Jo to make them for you! Those bunnies are so precious and look so at home on your table. I know what you mean about being careful with those delicate ears on your S&P's, bunnies always need a delicate touch!

  48. Just happened on blog because of Pintrest. The Heritage Fostoria...I picked up 6 like pictured, 6 tumblers at Salvation Army and paid under a dollar for each. Almost re-sold at a garage sale, but could not find all I had so took a name and number. She asked later but I had not found. Sooo glad I kept and very pleased to see how beautiful they are in your table scape.
