Bright, happy colors abound here at The Gazebo House!
This table went through several changes, as you'll see,
but some of the photos were just too cute not to use anyway.
The centerpiece started out with the apothecary jar of eggs
but was later switched when I found this live geranium with lavender blossoms.
The cache pot that I have it in, matches the handles
on the hand painted Spring Carnival Ceramic baskets on either side.
The soft, Monet-like pastel napkins went from the sides of the plates
to beneath them, once the polka-dot placemats were put into use.
Colorful plastic eggs currently sit in the egg cups
but will be replaced with decorated hard-boiled eggs with each child's name
as place cards on Easter morning.
A wee bit of candy is on the main table but not too much allowed until AFTER the meal.
The white dinner plates are Oneida's Wicker
(a new service for 8 that I found while
shopping with my sister...$21 total!)
The white salad plates are Michael Lee's
favorite Gibson dishes from Big Lots.
The colorful "Happy Easter" plates are last year's purchase.
I found these two harlequin patterned ceramic baskets
called Spring Carnival
at two different places, on two different shopping trips.
They are FTD floral containers
but I'm going to use them to hold my
decorated Easter eggs.
I'm using my Mom's flatware, as it is lightweight &
easy for the children to handle.
It is Wm. A. Rogers Oneida Silverplate.
The pattern is Wildwood/Always from 1958.
Fresh OJ for everybody in
Napoleon Bee glasses & water or milk
in the American Whitehall tumblers.
Coffee, (for the adults) tea & dessert will be served from the side table.
Thanks to Yvonne (StoneGable) for the idea of coloring my sugar!
My glass basket, was an Avon collectable from years ago.
Thanks also to Vintage Sandy for the gift of the lovely quilted mug mats
that have helped to continue the lavender color theme.
They’re not just for mugs!!
May the blessings of Christ's sacrifice
fill your heart with grateful love
during this Easter season.
Between Naps on the Porch for her
Thank you, Ladies for hosting some of the best weekly parties in all of bloggerville!
