My plan for this Easter family celebration began in December when my Dear Patient Hubby gave me 8 of the most beautiful dishes as a Christmas gift. As soon as I saw them, I knew I would use them for our Easter table. They did not have bunnies, nor were they really pastel, but for some reason, I knew I was going to use them as a jumping of point for my Easter tablescape.
I had also been inspired by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to use a moss 'tablecloth' and the Easter 'naturescape' idea took on a life of it's own.
I started with a moss runner.
I found this at Michaels
Not very attractive here, but I was hopeful.
Once rolled out on top of a light blue tablecloth,
it was a little messy. I would recommend having
a Dustbuster on hand!
I also picked up two packages of the
12x12 sheet moss
to cover and fill in
I chose this as my centerpiece because
it has an antique finish that
appeals to me.
The 12x12 sheet moss was used to cover the
bottoms of the candleholders
And I even filled the candle holder tops with it
to add a cushion for the candles
The little birds on the candleholders
also look as if they have
some age to them
These little placemats remind me
of Easter Bonnets!
Finally - here is the pattern of the
Christmas gift dishes
Here is a full view of the placesetting
These soup bowls are not part of the set my
Husband gave me but I thought they
were a perfect compliment to them

The pewter napkin rings
also have a spring bird resting on a branch
To the right of the placesetting, is an egg in cup
placecard holder and blue egg shaped
salt and pepper shakers to the left are from

Not to be left out, the buffet is also
set for the celebration
I thought Mr.and Mrs. Rabbit
deserved a closeup
Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit today.
I wish you a blessed holiday.
