Another Easter Table

I love rabbits. I always have. And I love Easter because I can decorate with them. This week's table uses a bunny that Pat bought a couple years ago at Michael's. She mixed it with lots of colorful Fiesta(ware).
Pat used Fiesta(ware) in three different colors: Poppy, Peacock, and Lemongrass.


Flatware is gold/yellow "Radiant" Primastone by Noritake














Where it came from:
Plaid Place Mat - from Pier 1 several years ago
Charger - "Sea Glass" by Wedgwood from eBay
Dinnerware - all Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin from Kohl's, Macy's, and Replacements
Flatware - "Radiant" Primastone by Noritake from eBay and Replacements
Orange Tumbler - "Sorgente" by Bormioli Rocco from TJMaxx three or four years ago

Whimsical Easter Table

I have no idea how Easter and bunnies got together - or how baskets of candy and hard boiled eggs fit in.  But I love Easter and can't wait to bring out my collection of "rabbits." Pat set this week's table using a very old ceramic bunny that I made over 40 years ago....



Flatware is "Silver Tear" by Gourmet Settings








Love this face

Pat made this delicate porcelain egg while I made the big, goofy ceramic bunny - you would never guess we were sisters....

Where it came from:
Green Place Mat - cut from an indoor/outdoor carpet
Charger - "Faience Gray" by Christofle from eBay
Pink Dinner Plate - "Pearl Pink" by JCPenney from Replacements
Bunny Plate - from Pier 1 last year
Flatware - "Silver Tear" by Gourmet Settings from Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Glassware - Depression glass from our collection
Pink Napkin - Handmade by Pat

222 Fifth Adelaide Table

Pat decided to set a simple, fun table this week. Since one of her favorite dinnerware makers is 222 Fifth (PTS), it was an easy decision to pick the dishes when she saw "Adelaide Turquoise" in the cupboard.


Pat used no-frills "Everyday" flatware by Reed & Barton





I couldn't believe it when Pat found this napkin in our "supply" - it is a perfect match

I always love it when we get a chance to use these porcelain birds - they were our Mother's

Charcoal Gray Place Mat - from Tuesday Morning two years ago
Dinnerware - "Adelaide Turquoise" by 222 Fifth (PTA) from TJMaxx three years ago
Flatware - "Everyday" by Reed & Barton from Bed, Bath, and Beyond
Glassware - from the Dollar Store
Napkin - from Linentablecloth.com (a neat mail order company for inexpensive linens and dinnerware)
