Easter Table Redux

I have an Easter tablescape planned, hopefully, for next week's Tablescape Thursday. Until then, I thought I'd re-post the table I did for Easter 2010  because I just loved it so much and it came together so nicely.

Erik and I will be hosting Easter dinner here at Le Beau Paon for his family and I am very excited for it. I can hardly wait to put together my tables. Yes, tables. I will have two tables set up since there will be 10 people and our dining room table only seats six comfortably. We are actually hosting Easter a week early, on Palm Sunday, because my in-laws are going to be traveling to Australia and are leaving the Thursday before Easter Sunday.

For my Easter table last year, I used this mossy basket as a centerpiece. I bought the basket at a charity booth at a local antique store, added the ribbon, some faux eggs and a resin "chocolate" bunny.

I used a color palette of green, cream, brown and a little yellow.

Each place setting got a chocolate Beatrix Potter bunny as a favor, purchased at the Dollar Store.

For fun: a slow gravy boat to China, filled with chocolate Peeps bunnies!

Thanks for stopping by!

Nice color choices. I love your mossy basket and silver pieces. I'm a silver lover, I even like to polish it.
Very pretty.
