Easter Brunch Tablescape


HAPPY EASTER!
Before I left for Texas, I set the table for Easter Sunday Brunch.

I used my vintage Johnson Brothers "Chintz" plates set on my tried and true cabbage leaf chargers.

The salad plates are vintage German majolica.

The "piece de resistance" is these little egg cups. I've been collecting them for years, and they are made in Portugal by Bordallo Pinheiro.
They look great with egg candles from Pottery Barn.


I found these chicken wire "placemats" that fit right in to the chicken theme.

Monogrammed napkins from Homegoods in pale yellow was a great find!
Mis-matched hotel silver completes the look.

The center of the table is set with three pairs of vintage chickens and lilacs from my garden.

In the middle is this painted wooden cakestand set with candles.

I also scattered some found bird's nests here and there.

Looking down the table at the place settings, set with purple goblets found at Salvation Army.


No bunnies at this table! Just these old vintage chickens.
I always wondered why the Easter Bunny brought eggs when I was a kid! I always thought there should be an Easter Chicken!

Oh my, these lilacs smell heavenly!

The "Chintz" platter is on display in the hutch for Spring.

Now when I'm back from my trip to Texas late Saturday, the table will be waiting for our family brunch the next morning.

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
Thanks Susan for hosting!

I'm also joining the Vignette Party over at Stories from A to Z.

Pin It!

I usually look but don't post even though I always like what I see. But, I just HAD to post this time and let you know what a magnificent table setting you have there! I adore the chicken wire placemats and the chicks holding the egg candles at each place setting. Everything is so perfect! This is one of the most unique table settings I've ever seen. Great use of color and texture too. Thanks for sharing.

Delores, you have another incredible table set. I adore those chicken wire placemats. You can do so much with those. Please share where they came from and if they are available on-line? How great to find monogrammed yellow napkins at HomeGoods. Love your green and white runner. Just perfect!

What a gorgeous table setting! The salad plates really speak to me and I love those placemats! Hope you have a great trip to Texas. :)

Sonia said...

Such a lovely table...I just love everything. My favorites are the chick egg cups and the wire plate chargers...so unique and fun. All the elements and the majolica work so well together. Hope you are having a great time in Texas...we were just in Austin and I did some great shopping in Fredericksburg, Texas! Have fun and have a wonderful Easter.

I was going to alert you to the fact that your eggs were on fire but I realized they were candles. Lol.
As nice as it is to see it now you will appreciate it even more when you come back from Texas and walk into that lovely room with the table set so beautifully.

Razmataz said...

This should be in a magazine! The quality of your photos is amazing especially those majolica plates....

Oh how I would love to be sitting her on Easter morning.

Nancy said...

Gorgeous again! I love those purple glasses. I have them in red and amber and would love to find the purple! Lucky you! Table is stunning! I love those chargers!

Happy Easter.

Mimi said...

I love your table with the chicken wire placemats, they are so gosh darned cute. The German Majolica looks so nice with the chintz plates. Adorable little egg cups...but most of all the fabulous centerpiece; chickens, candles, nests and lovely lilacs ...I can almost smell them. It will be awhile before mine are in bloom, the leaves are barely peeking out after the long winter.

Marsha's Mpressions said...

I did Easter Brunch too, but OH MY!!! YOURS IS WONDERFUL. And your placemats...BE STILL MY HEART! If you ever have time, would you stop by my blog and tell me where you got those? Your table, and blog, are just outstanding. Thanks for sharing.

Dining Delight said...

Fabulous! I love those little chick egg holders with the wonderful egg candles! Your dishes are lovely and love the purple stemware. Your centerpiece is so interesting as it goes down the length of the table incorporating lots of items. Those really tall pillar candle holders are perfect as they don't block sight lines which is a pet peeve of mine. Well Done! Happy Easter!

How extraordinary this looks. So full of nature, little cottage style and in the same time sophisticated and festive. I like the little nature nests, the chickens and the table runner. And your plates are very impressive. How funny looks this tablemats but really nice. And the best. This decoration fits perfectly in the whole room. Thats Stunning.

Wish you a happy Easter.

Mary said...

May I come by while you're away and guard those pretty burning candles for you!!? I would sit there and just love looking at every detail of the prettiest Easter/Spring table setting ever! Just gorgeous Delores - you certainly have 'the eye' and keep wowing us.

I can even smell the lilacs from here - I miss being able to grow them here in the Southeast. That perfume takes me back to my English childhood and my years of living in New England, both perfect climates for lilacs. The last time I was surrounded by them though was on Mackinac Island, MI - oh I was in heaven there!!

Love the new banner.

Glenda/MidSouth said...
