It's Tablescape Thursday! The best day of the week for us blogland dishaholics -- time to set the table and make the rounds!

I've set the table this week with an Easter theme. I have to admit this is a pretty busy table today.

There's always a place set just for you!

Here's a closer look at the centerpiece.

Looks like Peter Cottontail has his backpack ready to deliver eggs for Easter. He's standing in my hurricane lamp up to his knees in jelly beans! I found him last year at Goodwill just before Easter.

He's loaded up and ready to hide eggs for an Easter Egg hunt!

Sure hope these jelly beans don't slow him down.

He's surrounded by all his Beatrix Potter friends. I purchased these years ago when I was working at a local Hallmark store.

And a plate of spring flowers and colored eggs.

Here's Jeremy Fisher! (This was our son's favorite Beatrix Potter character)

Perhaps he'll use carrots for his bait.

And next to him is Peter Rabbit's mother.

An overview of the Spring table.

Overview of the centerpiece.

Goblets hand painted with Spring flowers. I found these last year at Goodwill.

The flatware came from Target last summer.

A glass cup of Easter eggs and an egg cup (Hallmark this year) containing an egg candle. I got the candles last year and never used them. Don't remember where I found them.

Let's look at the layers of the dishes. The salad plate came from Cracker Barrel last year -- they had very similar ones this year as well.

My creamy white JCPenny dishes were found a few years ago at Goodwill.

I'm using these large faux cabbage leaves as placemats. I found these and used them for St. Patrick's too. I went back and got more for Easter -- from Ben Franklin Craft store.

Time to light the candles.

Another view of our Easter table.

Wishing you a Happy Easter from our home to yours!
