Tablescape Thursday - Easter

If last week was a manly sort of tablescape - this one is all about Easter fun for kids - anything but manly.

Here's an overview of the Easter table.

A look at the place setting. White plate with this years Cracker Barrel Easter salad plate. I love the basketweave and the bunny with all the spring flowers. The cloth napkins are placed between plates. I used blue, green, yellow and pink napkins -- all colors of the tablecloth and in the plates as well. Each place has a water glass with the paper napkin in it and a small footed sherbert cup with Easter shred and a tiny chocolate bunny and two eggs.

A close up of the Cracker Barrel plate. I was lucky to get these 25% off! I also got two egg cups, but I'm not using those today.

Here's a top view of the sherbert cup.

Same cup from the side.

Looking at the centerpiece. A bunny on toe with eggs. The basket tray has Easter shred and a "sugar" bunny, three eggs, three ducks and a creamic egg.

She's just got the sweetest little face.

One more picture of our dancer - this reminds me of all the dance recitals for Katy - the costumes and the toe shoes. Fun days.

The twins are too young to eat at the table just yet - but I've set a place for them anyway. Here's one little bunny cup - this side shows Mama bunny and daughter bunny.

This side shows Daddy bunny and son bunny.

Here's a cup that was a gift when our son was born - almost 30 years ago.

This shows the other side.

This is a close up of the tablecloth - I've had it for years and can't remember where I got it. Maybe Garden Ridge.

Last we have a Easter platter I've also had for years - this came from Walmart. I hope that you've enjoyed a look at "Easter on the table" at my house. For more wonderful tablescapes, be sure to visit Susan at "Between Naps On The Porch" - no matter what your style, there's always a table set just for you!
See ya!


  1. Love all of your Easter things.

  2. This is just so pretty and so precious. I love the easter bunny plates and all the cute bunnies and chicks in the centerpiece. So pretty and such fun. I hope you have a blessed Easter. Hugs, Marty

  3. Happy Easter! The kids will love it. The Beatrix Potter cup is such a great keepsake!

  4. Oh this looks so cute! I had a set of Bunnykins pieces as a shower gift for my eldest son who is 36. That mug is Bunnykins isn't it? I guess you can still buy it. That is a great idea with the grass filled tray and you have done such a sweet table!

  5. How sweet! I love the little nests.

  6. Hi Martha! Oh, what a wonderful table! Love the tablecloth and dishes! Lots of fun things going on! It's just marvelous!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  7. I just love this china pattern for Easter! I saw this at CB and thought "well, mama bought it and maybe she'll give me hers"! It's so pretty. I love the centerpiece and the cups with the bunnies. BTW, yes, I added some shaved parmesan cheese to the Green Jacket Salad at the last moment. I should have mentioned that!

  8. Hi Martha...

    My friend, this is one of the prettiest Easter tablescapes cheerful with all of the pretty splashes of color...whimsical...your kiddos are just going to love it!!! I love your Easter egg tablecloth...ohhh, would love to have one like it! Was wondering where you got those beautiful white dinner/charger plates...they're gorgeous! And I love the bunny plates...I wonder if our Cracker Barrel has them? They're some of the prettiest that I've seen and I've been shopping for bunny plates!!! Love all of your extras...the sherbet cups filled with Easter goodies and then there is your centerpiece...soooo charming! I love your ballet bunny...she's so cute!!! Beautifully done, my friend!

    I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Easter...
    Warmest wishes,

  9. Happy Easter Martha! I love your bunny plates! (see my TT post!!!) Everything is just gorgeous! Your centerpiece is so cute and I love the tablecloth! :D Jewel (fellow Cracker Barrel shopper!)

  10. Hey Mom, just so you know... The bunny is "en pointe" not on toe. Love the table setting! Too Cute! I love having my own Martha Stewart Mom!

  12. Very nice Easter items. The candy and grass in the sherbet glasses is a great idea!

  13. Hello Martha! Your easter table is so cute! I love all the bunnies and all the details!! Happy Easter~

  14. Lovely, lovely table! I'm really bummed that I missed out on those plates from CB online!

  15. I love seeing how our little CB bunny plates are being used on lots of beautiful tables. The little sherbet glass was so creative and cute. My sister is a few years older than your son, but she has a similar set of dishes/cups that my mom has passed along to her. They are fabulous, I think. May you be blessed this Easter.

  16. Beautiful table and certainly not just fun for kids. I'd love to have Easter Dinner at your table.
    Have a wonderful Easter weekend,

  17. All of your Easter decorations are a delight, but I adore the plates from Cracker Barrel! Happy Easter...Nancy

  18. I love the bunny cups. And the ballerina bunny is too cute. Great job!

  19. Martha...this is sooo pretty! Love your bunny plates and the ballerina bunny centerpiece! What precious cups! :-) Susan

  20. Your Easter table is darling! I really like those bunny plates, wish I had bought some at our Cracker Barrel.


  21. Everything looks so pretty! I love the sherbert cups with the shreds and bunny/eggs. The Cracker Barrel plates are really cute too. And who can resist your precious bunny centerpiece. That is too sweet! Nice job!

  22. Everything is so adorable! But the MOST adorable of all is those two little girls in the Easter sweet and how fun to have them to brighten up your days!
    Have a fabulous week!
