Easter Dinner, 20102

 Good Easter Evening my dear friends!!!! I hope your Easter Sunday was sunny and bright and you were surrounded by family and friends and FUN!!! We had my daughter's in-laws and had a wonderful time all together. I didn't get any pictures of the family but the baby is getting BIG and he is so stinkin CUTE!!!!! He will be 2 in July. This was a bittersweet dinner as it was the last holiday dinner we will have here at this house......after 28 years!!!! Hard to wrap my head around yet. But, on to our dinner. I moved away from the all pastel hues of last weeks table to a more subtle and organic look for today. An Easter green tablecloth started off the elements.
 I placed my egg wreath in the center of the table, placed a clear glass cake holder in the middle of that then my straw bunny on that!
 He is so cute!
 I loved the look of the moss on the wreath with his straw body. Do you see the carrots in his basket?
 Onto the tablecloth I used my wicker type chargers, that remnd me of an Easter bonnet, then a square cream dinner plate, an Easter green plate, a cream with brown band salad plate, then an egg shaped plate for the GOODIES!!!
 I used my well loved brown bamboo flatware, it brings out the brown on the edge of the egg plate and the brown edged salad plate.
 Green pillars work well on this table.
 Here you can see the design on the tablecloth.
 Here is a shot of the whole table.
 I found these cute little boxes at CTS a few months ago and knew they would be a perfect "take home gift" for our guests!!!! I love to have a little something for everyone.

 My sweet ceramic bunnies didn't want to be left out of the celebration!

 They look like they were foil wrapped and someone started to unwrap them:)
 Looks good enough to eat, huh?

 My daughter bought everyone a Hersheys bunny because they are her very FAVORITE!!!!
 Thanks, Tracy!!!!

 Here is the ham right before it went into the oven. It was SO good.

 I used paper napkins tonight since I knew dinner would be pretty messy, and we had the baby at the table too:):)

  14. Beautiful, thank you for sharing your happy Easter table . xo p.s. leaving a comment from my other blog today

  15. What a great table! Every holiday I say we're going to use the china & every holiday we ended up with paper plates. It's just so easy! This year we ate outside.

  16. Love your tabelscape. The eggwreath with the bunny in the center is gorgeous. Such a cute bunny, I havn't seen one like that before. I also love the egg dishes. Tooooooooo cute. Thanks tons for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  17. Thanks for sharing this lovely tablescape for Easter. Love your egg wreath, all of your creativity is outstanding.

  18. Lovely table, Pinky! The tablecloth is so pretty! I bought those Hershey bunnies too for the goodie bags. I think those take home boxes are cute!

    You will love your new place, you won't even think about your old house. We lived in our old house 27 yrs., and I don't miss it a bit!

  19. Your table was beautiful, fun & totally charming, all wrapped up together! Yep, you could have fooled me with those little bunnies atop the cute boxes -- absolutely looked good enough to eat!

  20. Your Easter table setting was just charming! I know it felt strange to know that this is the last big family gathering in that home, but there will be more in your new home. You can take comfort in that. Spring and Easter are symbollic of new beginnings and that is what your Easter dinner was too!
