Easter Breakfast Table

Our Breakfast Table needed a little dressing up since Spring has sprung and Easter will be here soon, so I found the Easter bin in the basement and put a few things out.
Don't know about you, but it's almost like Christmas getting into bins with pretty things in it that you haven't seen in a year!

I found this cute bunny at HomeGoods last year and thought it would look good on the pedestal bowl in the center of the table. 




Green and pink and blue set against a white tablecloth  us perfect for Easter...

...as is our wedding china Artois by Limoge. The flatware is a previous every day pattern and the glasses are my favorite vintage glasses by Anchor Hocking.


I set a flameless tea lite inside the silver votives I found at Target at Christmas, then placed the almost clear Easter egg on top so that the light would shine through.

The  faux green grass was one of the items found in the Easter storage bin.

Now all I need is a springy bouquet of fresh flowers for the silver champagne bucket underneath the herb boxes. 

We're staying home for the next two weekends, so we'll be working on a short "honey do" list. I'm hoping to do a couple of pretty projects included on that list, as well as doing more planting in the garden. 

As for Easter, Mr. DIY will be making our traditional beef tenderloin for dinner. One question we always bring up at this time of year is how did ham for Easter come about when Jesus had lamb for Passover and Jewish people didn't (some still don't) eat  pork? 
Anyone know the answer?
Anyway, what do you traditionally have for Easter dinner? (if you celebrate Easter) 

Would love to know!

  1. I've never been a ham fan and I don't know why it's become traditional on Easter. I prefer brunchy-breakfast foods on Easter. I love that bunny! It just makes your table!

  5. I love your Easter tablescape! I love your idea of putting the flameless candle in the pretty transparent colored plastic eggs! That is a great idea!
    I also love your basket weave placemats. Where did you find those? I have never seen anything like them. You bring up a very interesting question about the ham. I will research it, and if I find the answer, I will let you know. Have a very blessed Easter, and thank you for sharing your creative ideas!
