Easter Table

This is my Prelude to Easter - since I am observing Lent this table is more of a lead in to Easter. 
Not a lot of frills and flowers, those will come on Easter Sunday.  I don't think I can call the colors exactly subdued, but I wanted to do more of a simple table before Easter. 
With a Cross centerpiece to remind us of what Easter is really about.

The bird nests are signs of what is coming.

The bunny cloche is what started this whole table.
I fell in love with these when I saw them.  
and of course had to have the little matching lamb cover dish.
I like that I  didn't even have to do any color enhancing to get this sort of aqua blue to pop!!  
I hope your Easter preparations are going well.

  5. This is a lovely pre-Easter table. The color is striking- that bunny tureen is adorable. The dish stack is great and I like the mix with the nests and bunny cloches. The pussy willows add a sweet detail to the napkins- love it!

  12. Hi there, Ann! This is a bright and yet soft color, one that is perfect for a "pre-Easter" tablescape! :-)

    I love the nubbiness of your placemats! They remind me of those throw rugs that I love so much. What a neat idea to use those little stems of willow to enhance your napkins!!! I also like how you incorporated the lamb into the centerpiece ("I am the Lamb of God...") and the cross. It's easy to forget the reason for the season if we're not careful.

    This is so pretty. You did a wonderful job! Have a smooth and easy weekend!!!

  13. Just lovely! I "get" the subdued feeling of your Lenten season tablescape and appreciate the symbolism in the cross and lamb and even the eggs in the nest can represent the "new life" we have because of the resurrection. I especially like how you used two of those cute cloches and two nests - good way to add interest to the table as well as not spending a fortune on multiple pieces! Pussy willows tucked in the napkins - another great touch!
