Easter Tables

CG's family is coming in this weekend for Easter, so to avoid running around like a crazy person, I've been doing some baking ahead and have set my tables.  We'll be having 8 at the adult table and 3 at the kids' table.  WD questioned why he's sitting at the kids table and I told him that only legal drivers will be sitting at the adult table.  He still has another year and a half to go.  He responded that he's taller than both his grandmothers and all of his aunts.  It's true.  The boy is growing like a weed, but I'm not ready to have him at the adult table yet.

Back to the table, I fell in love with the Martha Stewart bunny napkin fold, and just had to use it for my napkins.  Love Martha!  The salad plates are gold rimmed Eschenbach plates from my MIL.  The tablecloth is a $15 TJMaxx score, and the lavender wine glasses are from the dollar store.  Who knew you could buy wine glasses there?

Inspired by an image KathySue shared at Good Life of Design, I planted seeds in some cleaned out shells.  One of my shells is still under the grow lights.  It's just poked up out of the soil and won't be ready til tomorrow.  Just pretend there are three seedlings sitting in the spanish moss at the top of the tiered plate stand that's serving as my centerpiece.

At the base of the centerpiece are my chick & bunny salt & pepper shakers, and several egg cups.  I love the bright colors of the egg cups.

This Fenton basket was a Christmas gift from years ago.  I love the whimsical bunny marshmallows in the iridescent glass basket.  The tray is Limoges.

Over on the kid's table you'll find more bunny napkins, but in a more colorful napkin.  They sit on fun melamine egg shaped salad plates. 

The centerpiece is a simple dollar store wire centerpiece in a small Easter bucket with some more yellow chicks rimming the bucket.

SB loves playing with the soft little chicks.  I found them for next to nothing at the Christmas Tree Shoppes.

The kids table has a magically refilled glass dish of M&Ms.  At least that's what SB believes.

Thanks for popping in and checking out my Easter tables.  I'm sharing this at Between Naps on the Porch's Tablescape Thursdays and the Tablescaper's Seasonal Sundays.
