I haven't been organized enough to link to Marty's Table Top Tuesday at A Stroll Thru Life
in a long time, but this week I finally have something to share.
My inspiration for this tablescape was a set of orange-checked napkins I picked up on sale at a Sur la Table recently. I decided to set an Easter breakfast table with my two grandchildren in mind. The table is set for three, in part because I bought only three of the polka dotted plates at Target a year or two ago. (I know, The Tablescaper
would be horrified!)
The highlight of the placesettings for the grandchildren, is, of course, the candy-filled "carrot"!
Other elements include a green placemat, white plate as charger, and dotted melamine plate, plus our everyday stainless, the checked napkin, and a plastic goblet. I found only two of the goblets at Tuesday Morning, but they are made exactly like my blue Villeroy and Boch "My Garden" glasses, and I was surprised to pick them up and discover they were plastic. I wish I could find more of these for outdoor use!
Here's a closer look at the centerpiece. My daughter gave me the cute little chicks last year. I set them in a nest of shredded paper along with some faux eggs. As you can see, the eggs have begun to hatch, and the chicks are starting to explore their new world!
Another view of the escaping chicks:
Unfortunately, we won't be with our grandchildren this Easter, but I promise to save the "carrots" for them!
Thanks for visiting my blog today. I hope you'll leave a comment before you visit more fun table tops at Marty's A Stroll Thru Life!
