Easter Table Setting 2009

My Easter table is ready...I decided to go "colorful" this year, instead of my usual pastel table, and posted it at betweennapsontheporch Tablescape Thursday! It's so much fun to see how everyone sets their table and all the different dishes!

I am using my vintage linen table cloth and vintage mix & match silver plate I have collected over the years. None of it matches but I love that about it. When I was young bride I was given an Oneida Community Set from the 30's but It was only service for 6, so I have added many different patterns to it.

These are the daffodil's I posted a picture of earlier in the week. They opened up beautifully! They are in my large mint-julip cup. I can never resist one when I come across them. I have several in different sizes.

I have included a cabbage from Mr. Gregor's garden for the bunnies!

The cabbage is my absolute favorite place to hide my chocolate stash...I was thinking I should have filled it with chocolate eggs. I bought it at the Cracker Barrel gift shop a couple of Easter's ago.

I've had the The glass bunnies ever since I saw Martha Stewart set her Thanksgiving table with those famous glass turkeys. I borrowed her idea. The plates are part of a Tuscan set I got at Tuesday Morning...each plate was a dollar. I love any plate with an unusual edge.

The green glass plates are part of my collection of depression glass. I love how you can see the design on the plate under the glass! I almost hate to eat on it!!! But, there is chocolate involved so I'll have to!

Thanks to betweennapsontheporch for letting me participate!

This is a beautiful tablesetting. I really enjoyed the table tour. The white linen against the green cabbage, silver, bunnies and depression glass is just so precious.

Liz, your Easter table is beautiful. I love the glass bunnies. The daffodils are gorgeous. Great job. I also saw your post about the butler's pantry. I would love to see pics of that when you get it finished..hint, hint! What a wonderful idea. I'm new to this blogging thing, too, but I just love it. Hope you have a blessed Easter. Crystal
