Classic colors from a package of Easter egg dye, spring blooms and a china melange inspired my thoughts for a stylish yet casual Easter tablescape. I want the tablescape to reflect the colors of the season and the items to evoke memories. A less formal approach fits well with the spring atmosphere and relaxing mid-afternoon dinnertime.
My Fitz and Floyd and Andrea by Sadek rabbits have hopped from decade to decade, Easter tablescape to Easter tablescape.
I found the framed print, Bushy Tail by E. Gordon West, on an inventory shopping trip six years ago. I bought it to give to Dave the Builder for Christmas. Dave found a baby rabbit in our yard late one afternoon. He took care of it and the rabbit became part of our family. That crazy rabbit would walk right in the house like it owned the place. It would make a beeline for Dave to pick it up and hold it like a baby.
While placing items I decided a lite lunch would be a fun way to celebrate the pre-Easter moments of our lives.
Tea sandwiches and tea towels make a lovely addition to the menu and to the table.
The antique pink depression glass sandwich plate and blue Fenton hobnail pedestal cake plate were given to us as wedding gifts from my maternal grandmother. Perfect pastel additions to an Easter tablescape.
This simple Mango Lemon cake is as delicious as it is easy to prepare. It has a light tropical flavor and is just sweet enough to compliment a holiday meal. Please find the recipe here.
White daisies and berry pink roses simply and elegantly say hello, springtime!
