I love designing tablescapes. I started back in September 2010 and I now design tablescapes to share on my blog as well as on "Between Naps on the Porch" for Tablescape Thursdays.

My passion for designing tablescapes has sent me out on a search to buy more dishes that I can share every week.

I also enjoy making my own napkins to go with my different dishes and I love to mix and match some of my beautiful dishes.

~My Easter Tablescape ~

My inspiration for this tablescape is my love of Easter~~
I love all the pastel colors of Easter and tried to use as many
on this tablescape!!
I purchased my victorian ruffled round
placemats on Amazon~~~
My china is vintage and the pattern is called Apple Blossom by Haviland.
This is the salad plate ~~ colors are cream,pink,green ~~
This dinner plate is 10 1/2"
I did my centerpiece with a wine vine wreath with pastel colored Easter eggs.
I then put a cake dish in the middle and placed my bunny vase on top
and added additional spring colors with some flowers~~~
The parfait glasses on the salad plates will be filled with
 yellow and green Sherbert for dessert.
I wish you all a Happy Easter with your family~~

I did use a cream color tablecloth and added one of my vintage
style embroidered tablecloth topper!!
I hope you all come back!!! Please take a moment to comment
and thank you so much for stopping by!
I am linking up with these Blogs for their linky parties.

Your tablescape looks quite pretty and I love pastel color as well.

As a Japanese, I feel so appreciated that I could get in touch with your culture in this way.

Savannah Granny said...

Diane, This is the best ever!! And that was quite a challenge. The china is to die for but I am so glad you didn't have to go that far. However, I know you would go close. LOL. That centerpiece is just over the top awesome. Bunny is so cute and adorable. Love those placemats ;).

Diane, You are a honey. I wish I could take credit for those beautiful roses. Those were from the Botanical Gardens, where the Rose Festival will take place. I kill knock roses. Roses wilt when I touch them.
BYW. your email address on your comment is coming up "no reply-comment", so I couldn't respond privately. I don't think it has always been that way. Have a blessed Easter. Hugs, Ginger

Hi Diane.

Your tablescapes are lovely. I've enjoyed looking over your blog site. You must have a ton of dishes! I grabbed your button to share your talent with anyone who might come my way.
I noticed you had left me a message. I couldn't retrieve it beacause it was an old email address. I've since updated and look forward to you sending another one. Take care.
God bless.
