Set the Table - Easter Breakfast

Set the Table - Easter Breakfast

A Yellow and Pink table setting.  It is cheerful and Spring-like, set up in the kitchen.

The kitchen table is small, so the centrepiece is set up at the back of the table.

The Myrtle topiary is sitting in an apothecary drawer and naturally dyed Easter Eggs placed in a glass hurricane.

My replica chocolate mould bunny sits atop vintage books and the small frame contains a Gelli print.

A vintage quilt c1940's-50's is used as a tablecloth.   I believe the pattern is Dresden Plate.

Faux Peony flowers are placed in the flower pots.

The whole place setting.

  1. The quilt adds so much texture to the table and pushing the centerpiece to the back is a great idea. Sometimes, I get a little carried away with my centerpieces and have to do the same thing. The bunny mould caught my eye because I have a similar one and never thought to use it this way. Lovley table and thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Good, and thank you, Sandra Lee. I find it is so inspiring just to be in the company of creative people, like you.

  2. I love your bravery in using this fabulous quilt as a table cloth. I collect vintage quilts but rarely have the nerve to use the lighter colored ones on the table -- and it looks just fabulous! What a cheerful way to start your Easter! ~jeanie from Marmelade Gypsy

    1. Thanks, Jeanie. My granddaughter stayed with me the night after setting this table. She asked if she could eat her breakfast at the pretty table. She had breakfast and lunch at the table and there were no mishaps. Whew!!
