I’m don’t like to miss a party and I really wanted to make a showing at Vanessa’s and Heather’s Easter party, as well as Laurie’s Favorite Things this weekend, so I here’s a re-post of last year’s Easter breakfast table. I only have a few things set out for Easter this year, and most of them mimic what I did last season. Even still, I haven’t gotten around to taking photos of anything! So whether you recall seeing this last year, or you are new to it today, I hope you’ll enjoy it. The husband and I will be alone for Easter this year, as our son is now living in California; but we’ll be sharing Easter dinner with our sister-in-law and her family. I’ll probably just set a simple breakfast table for the two of us and we’ll have bacon, eggs, toast, and fruit. Now if I can only find those bunny plates I bought on clearance last year….. Do you forget where you put things, too?

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?!
Don’t forget my book give-away. Deadline for entry is Sunday.
