Table's Ready!

It seems my kitchen table has been getting quite the workout these days.  It's all dressed up and ready for Sunday's Easter celebration.


It will be just the four of us so I decided to keep it light and casual rather than setting a more formal setting in the dining room.


I paired the new with the old.  Lennox Opal Innocence Carved and Spode's Billingsley Rose.  They both are heavily textured which gives that pretty lacey look that I love.


Add a little vintage white ironstone pitcher and fill it with lovely blossoms.



Serve the tea from a sweet little bunny teapot...


Serve the soup from a vintage tureen.


The table wouldn't be complete without a couple of vintage doilies.



We're ready to share the blessings of this Easter season.

Many blessings to you today and all the days to come.  Happy Easter!
