Easter Breakfast Table

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.

I love your basket under the cloche! It looks wonderful! I haven't put out much this year, as we won't be home for Easter due to when the children's Spring Break falls but have enjoyed seeing others! Happy Spring!

Hi Sue! I know Heather already came by but I just had to stop over too and let you know how much inspiration this gave me. I'm going to be hosting Easter dinner this year (kinda last minute) so this gave me some really great ideas. I especially love the dogwood branches around the cloche! Everything is just lovely! Thanks again,

I remember this post, and enjoyed seeing it again. Breakfast casserole sounds wonderful. I put very little out for Easter and did that mainly for the grands when they come. Other things going on and I have let time get away from me.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

I hope you remember where you put your plates. Do I ever do that? Is the Pope Catholic? :)
Lovely table, love the cloche!

A Hint of Home said...

Your table is adorable and so colorful! Love the centerpiece! Your dishes and bunnies are soooo cute.
My cleaning is finally coming to an end and I survived the dust, Sue. My body is another matter. I feel like I've been hit by a truck. lol
Have a great Sunday!

Beautiful table, I love those floral dishes, so pretty!
If you know where I put my stainless dutch oven, let me know, cause I can't find it.

Kristi said...

Love your egg cup!! What a beautiful table set up!

I'm SO glad you reposted this pretty table, Sue, as I never got to see it last year! How did I miss it???!!!

LOVE that beautiful, tall cloche you own. So many possibilities with that.

We're backwards from you...the g'kidlets will be here for brunch after church but we'll be alone for the evening meal. LOL Too bad we're so far apart...we could join forces.

So festive! I would love to sit at such a pretty table - you have a knack, girl! XOL

Grace @ Sense and Simplicity said...

What a lovely table setting - especially love the plates with bouquets on them. And yes I forget where I put things that I buy all the time.

Sue, I love that moss covered basket. Your table looks so pretty. I always like china that has a different design on each place setting. This design is perfect for Spring. There are days when I feel like I spend all of my time looking for something. Grrrr! I guess if I didn't have so much, I might not spend so much time searching. I skip breakfast completely and go straight to dessert! I'm so glad you linked up. laurie
