Welcome to The Tablescaper.
Easter is one of those holidays where I feel inclined to pull out the “good stuff”.
But I also like my table to feel current and not a rerun of something my Mom might have done.
Now don’t get me wrong, I’m sure my love of tablescaping comes from setting many tables with my Mom, but it needs to have my spin on it.
By introducing the very current moss bunnies to this table…
…even though the china is vintage.
This china set has a neat story behind it. When my brothers and I were growing up we had a very strict older German women as our babysitter, Mrs. Staneker. My brothers always liked her, but not me.
Anyway, I guess at one point she was down sizing and asked my Mom if she’d be interested in purchasing this set of china, which obviously my Mom did. What a surprise, my Mom had several sets of china. Shocking, I know. I’ve always loved this set. It has numerous serving pieces.
The whimsy of the bunnies is continued by setting these little china baskets at each place (believe it or not, Christmas Tree Shop a couple of years ago).
The napkin rings are another long ago Christmas Tree Shop purchase, along with the napkins from World Market (some wonderful sale that Kathleen tuned me into).
As you set your Easter table, keep in mind that it’s great to use a set of dishes that have been in the family…
…or tucked away in the closet forever…
…just remember to put your spin on it (the metal cachet pots are from Ikea, love the little feet!)
