Every Easter for several years, I have always served dinner on my
Royal Albert Serenity dishes.
Although this year I have decided to go a different route with my actual Easter table setting,
I thought I would nevertheless pull out the pretty pink dishes and get a little creative.
I blended them in with Easter pastels, along with some rustic and vintage touches.
When I started decorating the house for the Easter holiday last week,
I combined the pastel with my vintage treasures throughout the house.
So I when I did this tablescape, I just carry through with this theme.
Old, new and pastel.
I set the table with a pink runner. The china sits on rustic wooden chargers.
Actually the wooden chargers are a Thanksgiving theme, but who's going to notice anyway.
I have all kinds of themes going on for this Easter tablescape!
Aren't they the prettiest dishes. Had them since I was 17 years old.
And every time I pull them out of the china cabinet, their beauty still catches my breath.
Never gets old.
For the centrepiece, sitting on a vintage silver serving tray,
I gathered together Mr. Peter Cottontail and
surrounded him with some of natures rustic twine, mossy thingy ma jigs.
Threw in a few pastel eggs, made him feel he was right at home in the woods.
Look at all the chocolate on the table.
I write this post five days after I finished the tablescape, and the chocolates are still here.
Must be losing my touch.
I always have so much fun putting together a tablescape.
This one took me two days to finish.
Doesn't really matter if things match. But somehow, it stills flows together naturally.
Symmetrically. New, old and pastel.
