Tablescape Thursday

Welcome to Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan
found over at

My Tablescape today is from Easter Sunday and it was tossed together the night before. I don't know how Easter crept up on me this year but I finally had Mr. C bring down a few tubs of my Easter decor just to set the two tables. Once again this year it was just Mr. C and I and our two children. Our daughter came home from college and our 16 year old son was so excited, not because of the decoration but he got a car on the Friday before Easter. Since it was just the four of us we ate in the morning room and went very casual. The day was overcast but we did get to enjoy the squirrels on the patio eating their Easter meal of fresh peanuts I put out for them.

Simple white napkins and a black tablecloth, yes I know black does not scream spring, but I like the backdrop it gives.

In the baskets are the eggs I painted last year, I really do like the pale colors.

I used three dishes because I love the shape of my chargers, love the blue of the plate and love the shape of the top plate that goes along the same lines of the chargers.

We set up the dining room as the buffet setting, more hand painted Easter eggs, but these I painted in bold colors, the Easter basket was mine as a child so it is older than and all the large eggs are part of a collection that were given to my children from my mom each Easter until she passed away.

Do you see the cream puffs? Well I made a Texas sheet cake the night before and Mr. C and I were home all alone and could not help I filled the empty space with cream puffs..

A vase of Peeps watches over the food!

See the cream puffs again..yes Mr. C and I were bad!

Eggs from Mom.

Hope you enjoyed my little toss together Tablescape and come back to see me real soon! Have a blessed day!

You're right -- that black tablecloth really sets off all your pretty plates and table decor! Just a lovely setting, and the food is SO inviting!

How pretty this is -- I was just thinking how lovely the soft colored eggs were....and then I fell in love with the bright ones as well -- how special that your Mom gave those pretty eggs that your children will always remember and hold dear.
