Simple Easter Breakfast Tablescape

This is my first time participating in Susan’s  84th Tablescape Thursday. I’ve set a really simple table by using a lace tablecloth that I found at a yard sale last fall. To add a little color, woven straw placemats in spring green were used for each of the place settings. White dinner plates and floral luncheon plates and bowls were placed on top of them.  Nothing fancy, by any means~ just pretty, pastel, spring colors that let us know that a new season is upon us.  






The centerpiece of the table is a large cloche covering a moss covered basket filled with speckled wooden eggs. A garland of faux dogwood blossoms encircles the bottom of the dome.






Each luncheon plate and bowl has a different bouquet of flowers embellishing it.




I used two different colored napkins and wrapped them with faux tea roses and ivy.  I alternated pink and green egg cups to the right of the napkins and  vintage green juice glasses to the left.



Who wouldn’t want to eat a soft cooked egg from this sweet little eggcup?




A small iron stand holds salt and pepper shakers, as well as a sugar bowl.




This little bunny is holding a watering can and is ready to get her garden growing.




And this rabbit looks as if he is ready for a snack.


I’m looking forward to eating a nice breakfast casserole and some fresh fruit,  as well as enjoying some pomegranate juice and a hot cup of coffee on Easter morning. I might even add a chocolate egg or some jelly beans as my dessert!  Do you get dessert with breakfast?!
