If you've been around for a while you know that I enjoy putting together holiday tablescapes. I've been thinking about my Easter table for a while, and was thrilled when Mikasa offered to send me a few pieces to make it even more beautiful.
With my semi-new found love for blue and white pieces, I knew these cobalt Cadence salad plates would be the perfect pattern to layer in a variety of place settings. I think the modern lines of the criss-cross pattern mixes nicely with more traditional pieces.
I also knew I wanted to add some fun monogrammed napkins. When I saw these green napkins at Homegoods a while back, there's no way I could leave them there. I've been using my *embroidery sewing machine more and more all the time. It's one of the best birthday gifts my husband's ever given me... I think it's paid for itself with all of the money I've saved on monogramming (not that I had many things monogrammed before, but now I can monogram 'til my heart's content!).

Store bought sugar cookies and pink Peep bunnies add some color (and a treat) to each place setting. Boy, do my kids love those cookies (and I admit, I do too). It was torture trying not to eat the props, but I resisted!
I think lots of layers make tables much prettier and more interesting. I began with a few strips of fabric (I've become an expert fabric folder for table runners!), and built up the place settings with a placemat as well as a charger to add some bulk and texture.
These lovely Serenity Gold flutes are so fancy! Even though they look great in photos, I was pleasantly surprised at how they are even prettier in real life. They complement the Mikasa Arctic Lights crystal that I've had for years nicely. Even though we don't do alcoholic drinks, everyone will feel extra fancy drinking their sparking cider from these beauties!
Lastly, I added one more special Easter touch. When we were in Poland last fall, I bought several brightly colored hand painted eggs. I couldn't wait to display them for Easter and remember what a wonderful trip we had. (I wrote about buying meaningful souvenirs here.)
