Hoppy Easter

Is your Easter table ready? If not, maybe my pink and green tablescape will inspire you to get something going or at least start thinking about it.


I hadn't planned on buying a plaid tablecloth for Easter since I had another tablescape already running in my thoughts and pocketbook. But when I saw this pink and green plaid tablecloth at Home Goods, it was all over. Gosh, it was inexpensive and I knew it would work with my Pink Cabbage pattern dishes. Then I saw this cute rabbit pitcher that was perfect with the plaid tablecloth. Now you know, I am weak when it comes to a bargain and gorgeous colors for my table!


I stopped at a local market for the light pink tulips then kept them at a cool temperature over night so they wouldn't open too quickly. 

I just read that you can put two pennies in the vase of water and the tulips will stand up straight. I'm putting the pennies in now but it is probably too late for mine. Maybe it will work for you! I think I light mine drooping over the spout of the pitcher.

The pink Fostoria Heritage goblets and the green etched stemware compliment the pink and green the plaid tablecloth.

The decorated cookies are from Big Lots and only cost $1 so what a bargain and no work for me. I made the burlap bunny ear napkin rings with burlap ribbon from Hobby Lobby. 


My flatware is my treasured Daffodil pattern 1847 Rogers that belonged to my mother. I like to use it at Easter and sometimes Mother's Day as seen here. It's a sweet way to remember her.

Are you wondering who is back there sitting on the bread rack? Take a close look through the handle of the centerpiece rabbit and you can see his cousin sleeping in a basket.

He must be tired from thinking about hiding all those Easter eggs for little ones. He's got a big job ahead!

The two shelves of the bread rack are lined with Pink Cabbage Majolica plates by Bordello Pinheiro (chop, luncheon, and salad) plus more bunny friends from Fitz and Floyd and A Corner Ruby Collection.

The Meaning of Easter
Easter is the day when we celebrate Jesus Christ rising from the dead. Jesus is the Son of God and heroically gave His life to die for our sins. On the third day after He died -- the day we now celebrate as Easter Sunday -- His friends went to His grave, and found that He had risen from the dead. They saw an angel who told them, "Don't be afraid! I know you are looking for Jesus, who was crucified. He isn't here! He has been raised from the dead, just as He said it would happen."



Thanks for stopping in and "Hoppy Easter" friends - Judy.

  9. I could have NEVER resisted that pitcher, oh my goodness it is adorable! I love the way the tulips spill out...I am going to remember the penny tip but I think the natural way the tulips have of leaning over is their charm. Your sideboard of bunnies is irresistible!

  16. Beautiful table, Judy...pink and green compliment each other so nicely. Your mother's flatware is such a pretty pattern. I think I am in love with that adorable bunny pitcher. I had never heard of using 2 pennies in the water to keep tulips upright, I like them to be floppy 99% of the time!
    Tune in next week for something pink and purple...have a great weekend.

    Happy Easter!

  18. Beautiful, Judy! Love the colors! That bunny pitcher is gorgeous; I love it. Oh boy, I'm going to have to make a trip to Home Goods, I think. : ) I'm hosting Easter this year and I definitely need a tablecloth, so I might as well go there as anywhere!

    I have the same bunny on your shelves {upper and to the right}. He is out all year long on a shelf in my laundry room. Because I've gotta have bunnies everywhere!

  22. Hi there, Judy! Well, we are all in it together now. Spring is nothing like Spring, so we'll just have to suffer through as a group! :-)

    It's like you and I were of one brain in our table decor! You and I both went with tulips drooping to the side which has a little bit of drama to it. I love it that you have that great bunny to cradle your tulips...and they are a gorgeous shade of pink, too! I don't have those gorgeous pink cabbage plates, but I went with the green ones...and rabbits. So I think we're of one mind this week! :-) LOVE the plaid tablecloth! Those are such pretty, soft colors. And what a great bargain on those cool cookies!!! Better than slavin' over the oven any day!!!

    Stay warm this weekend!

  25. I love how coordinated you t'scape is and especially the tablecloth! I can so relate to how Home Goods can make you lose all restraint when it comes to table décor. I was just at Home Sense (Canadian version) last wknd and I was totally out of control!

  26. Judy,
    I bought that same tablecloth a couple years ago at Home Goods. I thought it was so cute. Didn't use it this year, but still love it. Your table is darling. I have alot of pink and green dishes for Spring. Can't believe you got those cookies from Big Lots, too cute! I would love it if you would share this with my link party, Share Your Cup Thursday.
    hugs,
    Jann

  31. Judy - your "little pieces" have made a huge impact this time. What a lovely table and the new bunny with the tulips is adorable, as it the very tired bunny. I really like the plaid tablecloth and you did a fantastic job mixing all of the greens and pinks! Hoppy Easter!

  33. Wow I want that tablecloth! It would be perfect for a table I'm working on!
    Love your Bordello Pinheiro pink dishes. Love the pictures you capture here- great job!

  34. I'm glad you didn't resist buying the tablecloth because it does work so well with your pieces. Your Bordello Pinheiro pink dishes are so attractive and you have all the other pieces that work so well with it. I love your glasses and bunny centerpiece is precious. Fresh tulips are perfect and I like them leaning.

    Thank you for the meaning of Easter. I hope your Easter will be special.
