Table Top Tuesday

Today I am showing my Easter Tablescape. The theme was garden. I used my like new Verdi Green Imperial Glasses along with the Cobalt Imperial Glasses.
The pattern is called Old Williamsburg.


My mom gave me the green ones. She would buy them one a pay check. She thought they were soooooo expensive. .75 cents each. They are very heavy.....

These are our special guests.... Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny... my silly brother kept saying that he was going to unwrap them...nnnnnooooooooo....
their not really chocolate....


A little garden tool and a pot of silk African Violets....
of course with the formal silver candle sticks...


A carrot napkin ring...

Or.... an asparagus napkin ring.....



Bunnies and birdies abundant....

I thought that the Spode Copeland Buttercup was perfect for this garden setting...
and the burlap tablecloth was just as appropriate.

Look at that pretty little face...


Thank you for joining us for Easter dinner!


Now... Make sure you join Marty and all her participants for table top Tuesday.

I love your table, especially the napkin rings...but you knew I would *heart* them and I DO! I have serious love for those babies. Will be keeping my eyes peeled for some!

Love the table, simply gorgeous. I wish I had felt better, I wanted to try my hand at tablescaping, but it would have been lost on Fly Guy and the Reluctant Teenager.

Thank you for sharing...It has cheered me up enormously!

Hi Liz,

Thanks for asking me to stop by...this is strange but I have been here before....in fact I could swear I'd left a comment. I think sometimes I forget to do the word verification and go on. That must be what happened as I specifically remember this lovely tablescape. I adore your glassware and Spode...well what can one say? It's as good as it gets. This is so pretty...every little detail. Thanks for entering my giveaway! Good luck.

Shelia said...

Hi Liz! Oh, your table is just stunning. I love the mix of color with your beautiful glassware! That's funny about your mother and the glasses. But I remember when gas was 50 cents a gallon, so 75 cents was a lot more then! :)
Your dishes are so beautiful and those bunnies that looked wrapped up are so adorable! You did good!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Your pretty table is Easter perfection! Thanks for stopping by my blog -- I am so happy you liked it. I really like the way you pulled it all together, and I especially like the crocheted pieces that you have used under the plates. I like the heavy glassware a lot, too.

Those bunnies make it don't they?! :)

Your table looks so baroque and regal! I love the attention to detail, I'm not sure I'd have the patience nor the skills to arrange such delicate set-up! :)

Yours is just gorgeous!
