Decorating the Dining Room Table for Easter

 

Easter-Table 18

This year I decided to decorate the table a little early for Easter. After the long cold winter we have had, I was ready to make some changes around the house and what better way than to bring out Easter decorations and set the table for Easter.

A lot of the decorations I use have sentimental value. My mother-in-law has been giving my girls Easter decorations since they were very young. We put them out all over the house every year and one day I know they will want to display these special treasures from their grandmother in their own homes.

I have found other items such as this bunny at yard sales. It is actually a part of a set of four bunnies, two large and two this size. This is the first year I have used them on my table. I usually have the bunny family on display in my foyer. Of course it is early in the season, they may be moving around before too long.

The china I am using is Lenox Butterfly Meadow. I have had this pattern for a few years and I really like it. The china actually has six different patterns on the dinner plates and on the salad plates. Each one has different flowers and butterflies on it. My favorites are the blues and yellows.

Can you see the little ladybugs on the leaves? I love these small details.

Here is a close-up of the details on the dinner plate. Each one is different.

These wire and floral baskets are from their grandmother too. She gave the baskets (full of candy) to them just a couple of years ago.

The pretty bowl in the center was a Mother’s Day gift from my children. Their grandmother had helped them buy it from a dear friend at a church yard sale. I know it must be very old. (And of course there is Cupcake in the background. He likes to be a part of every project that I work on.)

I found a set of these little decorations at the Dollar Store years ago. My girls loved playing with them when they were very young. You’ve got to keep your eyes and your mind open because you never know where you might find your next treasure.

Another one of the Butterfly Meadow floral patterns.

I found these little dessert bowls at a yard sale. The lady I bought it from said they were actually promotional items that had come from the grocery store years ago. They originally were sold with jelly in them. Nice way to reuse an item.

This is my favorite plate of the Butterfly Meadows pattern.

I purchased the green straw placemats at Marshalls.

I enjoyed decorating my table for Easter and I will continue to put out more of my Spring and Easter decorations. Have you started decorating for Easter?
