Dogwood tablescape

I love the dogwoods that bloom every spring.  The first Mother's Day after we moved into this house, my husband planted a dogwood tree and we've enjoyed it every spring since 1993. 
Won't you join me at this simple Easter setting?

I found this vintage tablecloth a couple of years ago at an antique store out of town.  Last year I waited too long to use it for a tablescape and the blooms were gone.

Last year I found these delicate goblets with cut flower designs.

My layers of dishes include a white dinner plate.

White chargers from Pier 1.

And small green depression glass plates.  

These sweet pink bud napkin rings were the perfect spring touch for the green napkins with a white organdy napkin layered on top.

A closer look at the dogwood patterned tablecloth

I added some pink azalea blooms to the dogwoods.  When you look closely you can see the holes caused by the inchworm infestation we've had this year.

Blooms gathered into a glass basket vase.

Baby bunnies hiding under the blooms.

I hope you've enjoyed this simply set Easter table.

I'll be sharing another Easter tablescape later this weekend.  We'll be having a brunch and egg hunt on Saturday with our daughters family.  That will be set with our grandtwins in mind.

See ya!
