Easter Tablescape

Easter is just barely over a week away.
As I've said before, I love taking things on hand, or basics to create a Tablescape design. This Easter Dinner Party is no exception.

Some Beanie Baby bunnies, plain ol' plastic Easter eggs, and some baskets, all from my daughter's room, are the centerpiece to this table.  I just wrapped chocolate satin ribbon around the eggs and added some fresh cilantro that I had on hand for a lush, spring feel.

At each place setting, I placed an open egg with a decorative cross embellishment inside, as a friendly reminder of the reason for the season.  If you prefer not to put a religious symbol, you could put a flower, bunny, or other spring symbol.

Easter is almost here!  If you are planning on hosting Easter Dinner, then start looking around, you may have what you already need on hand to make your Tablescape as stylish as you are!

Hello there,

My, you sure have created a charming Easter tablescape with things you have onhand my dear!

Those bunnies are adorable! The dishes and the whole arrangement is very appealing.~ I especially love your colours!..,

I always do the same; things on hand are always the best in many ways and certainly most afforable!

I feel 'as if I fell down the proverbial Alice in wonderland rabbit hole' somewhat today! (Dear Susan had posted a note indicating that the Mr. Linky widhet was unfortunately 'acting up', so to speak).~ My, she was right!

I had tried repeatedly much earlier to link up to no avail.., Yet thankfully I am now joined with the rest of you now for 'Tablescape Thursday'!...,Yay!

(Susan at BNOTP does an excellant job hosting and I appreciate her leaving a note of expanation)!

Please do kindly pop over for a visit, I'd love to have you 'for a spot of tea'!

Cheers from Wanda Lee @ The Plumed Pen

It's interesting how a satin ribbon can turn a simple egg into an elegant one. I love the smell of cilantro. It's a lovely table setting. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment.
