A Touch of Easter

This Easter we welcomed family and new friends to our table. I wanted the table to be fun, yet have a touch of elegance so that everyone who graced us with their presence would feel special. 




And of course, we had to have a bunny near by.


My centerpiece was a vase that I purchased at Pier 1.  I then inserted a smaller vase inside, then filled the gap with inexpensive jelly beans.


It looked really cool from the outside.


Then I place purchased bouquets of tulips inside the inner vase.


And this was the result.


I had some left over tulips so I placed them in my newest vase, also found at Pier 1.


Everyone got an Easter Egg surprise at their place setting.









Yellow and sherbet colored napkins were embraced by my new favorite napkin rings.


Clear bowls were used for the salad so that we could see the colorful plates beneath it.


Everyone enjoyed a good meal and good fellowship.


Thanks for stopping by. I hope you enjoyed our Easter tablescape.

  1. Oh my gosh...your jelly bean centerpiece is just knock-your-socks-off BRILLIANT!!! I learned of using a can down inside a big cylinder before filling with candy or shells but to use the VASE & thus be able to top it off with fresh flowers!!! How cool is that! You KNOW I will be *benchmarking* this one. (that means "copy" in the nice way) I only copy from the best, ya' know.

    Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful Easter table, Mindy.

    fondly,
