EasTeR TabLeScApe

Welcome to my dining room. My table is all set for Easter Brunch. I gave you a sneak peek yesterday with my table centerpiece. Today I will show you the table setting. Please come in.

I just love dishes. You could say it is an addiction. If I could just set the table and make everything pretty and the meal would magically appear, I would be so happy. Cooking is not one of my most favorite things. My family really wishes it was!! But that's ok, because I really wish cleaning up bedrooms was one of their favorite things. *wink*

The blue placemats are from the Dollarama, which is my second favorite place to shop. (Home Sense would be #1) The yellow plates I purchased in a dish set from Home Hardware many years ago. The cute little salad plates on top were a great find at my local grocery store. I purchased two sets of four in a super after season clearance sale last Spring. Each plate in the set has a different colored edge and paw prints, and a different bunny picture.

I have two of these place card holders. My mother bought them in a set of six on her honeymoon in 1958. She gave these to me several years ago. I can only assume that my sisters each got two as well. Won't I be opening a can of worms if they didn't!! ;0)

My sister gave me these napkin holders at my bridal shower. Aren't they cute. I think they just say, "Easter"!

These wine glasses were also given to me at my bridal shower. I've been using them for almost 26 years now.

This fella joined my pitcher collection a couple years ago. I found him at COSTCO.

I'm so very glad you could visit with me today in my dining room. Pop on over to Between Naps On The Porch and tell Susan I sent you. I am joining her "Tablescape Thursday" Party. You won't believe the fabulous tables you will see there!

You will also want to visit ""The Tablescaper" for Seasonal Sundays, and be inspired to prepare for the Easter Season. I'll be linking there for the first time!!


  1. I adore those cute little plates! I have those same placecard holders, I found 12 at an antique store and snatched them up!! Your table is perfectly adorable!

  2. That is lovely! Simple and crisp, perfect for Easter Brunch. Love the place card holders!
    Thank you visiting me, it is so nice to meet another dish addict! There are so many of us!

  3. Seriously? This is beautiful! We are obviously in different stages of life, you and I! If I put that many valuable things (I don't even think I own anything like that!) on one table, MOST of them would be broken before Easter. Besides, where would we eat until then? Ahahaha! I LOVE IT!

    PS - I saw those little bunny plates last year and wished I was creative enough to use them somehow! They're adorable!

  4. I love the little bunny on your dishes. You have a cute collection of other ones as well.
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your sweet comments.

  5. Oh my gosh, Tanya, we have SO MUCH in common! I laughed out loud when I read the bit about making the table pretty and wishing the food would magically appear!

    Your table is both beautiful and fun...not an easy thing to accomplish! You done GOOD!

  6. Hi, Tanya!!! I have got to say that those bunny plates are about the cutest little things I have ever seen! They are absolutely darling! And I love the bunny pitcher, too! Every once in awhile Costco has some really cute tabletop stuff. If I see it, I grab it right up! It's hard to believe Easter is just around the corner already! Your table is beautiful for brunch, and I know your guests will really enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by my blog on Thursday. I've been out of town and am just getting a chance to get back on a computer. (I was having SERIOUS computer withdrawal!!!) Have a beautiful weekend, and I hope to "see" you again soon!

  7. It's so wonderful to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays! Welcome.

    Love your table. The little bunny plates are simply adorable and the place card holders are so delicate. They have such a touching history.

    Hope you'll be with us next Sunday too!

  8. What an adorable table, lovin' those bunny plates:@)

  9. Oh my goodness, just love those bunny dishes! I like the combination of colors you have with that pretty color blue, the yellow and then the bunnies.

    Great idea to use the place card holders in the way that you have!

  10. Tanya, you are so creative and your table is beautiful and fun! I wish I had half the imagination you do. What a wonderful gift! <3

  11. Tanya, I love everything about your fresh and pretty Easter table! Especially those wonderful fun bunny plates! Also your name card holders are beautiful... what joyous truth written on your cards. I think this is a fabulous idea!I just may use this on my table too. Thanks for the inspirtion.
