Happy Easter Tabletop

Looks as though Mr. and I are hosting a late afternoon Easter dinner, after we go out to brunch with my brother. Better get my organizational skills down pat!

The dining room is ready and over the last few weeks you have seen parts of it.
I will use my Grandmother's dishes and her Daffodil silver
I love this little silver basket

If anyone wants tea, we are ready.
What better time to use Grandma's silver

My one and only Victorian Easter Egg

My tea cup shelf is holding my Easter decorations from my childhood.
Yes, I decorated when I was little too!

Things I bought with my Grandma years ago brings back sweet memories.
A Hallmark bunny from the 1970's
and my fuzzy chick I have had forever and love.

Happy Easter to you all.
I hope the Bunny hops over and make your day special!!

Ok, I have to know. Do you ever throw anything away or have a garage sale to purge???
Where do you keep all of this? How do you know where it is when you want to use it? How do you remember what you have?
You are amazing. My head is spinning.
Love all your easter stuff and the teacups.
We didn't hit 90- yeah!

Gosh Ann that daffodil silver is too too pretty. Your Easter plans sound lovely.

Yes, it is the perfect time to use the daffodil silver that belonged to your Grandma! Looks like you've got Easter dinner well under control.

Your collections always amaze me Ann! And I'm sure I have already told you how I love your Grandmother's daffodil silver. Your previous post of the garden and your neighbor's is wonderful. What a gorgeous neighborhood you live in! Have a great Easter! I know you'll do it up in flying colors!

Ann these vintage treasures are all so wonderful! All of my grandparents had passed on before I was born. I had Aunts that were like grandmothers and I cherish the few items I have that were once theirs. Having your grandmothers china and silver, pure joy! Would love you to share this with my new linky party, "Share Your Cup Thursday"

Your grandma's silverware is so unique. You just have to use it at Easter with that design. I really need to get at least one Easter item out here to decorate with. I'm feeling a little unseasonable!

Great Easter memories! And love your blooms on the previous post. Beautiful tulips and I can't wait til the lilacs bloom here. My favorites.

Donna said...

You have so many pretty things, Ann! I was wondering the same thing that Tete said, how on earth do you store everything? And I bet you would have an awesome garage sale! I love your tea cart, and that pretty silver basket. Happy Easter to you, too!

Your treasures are fantastic, just beautiful. Your tea cart looks so lovely. The china is simple gorgeous. I really enjoyed this post and got a wee bit jealous I might add. Easter blessings!
