Delicious Table Settings!

I was looking around for nice place settings for Easter. However, I forgot that we will not be having Easter dinner at home. We are celebrating on Saturday at my parents house. Then, I thought that maybe for the Wild One's birthday coming up. Nah, much too formal for a 3-year-old. I still had fun looking. Maybe some other time.

Love the white with little the touches of blue. I thought I could do the reverse (blue tablecloth) and use my white lace-edged dishes.

... like this! From Martha Stewart.

Love these from Country Living ...
Great idea for egg cups!

Love the blue and white here ...

This one looks like paper plates. Perfect for a kid party (or party where you don't want to wash dishes!).

This one is bright! Makes me want to go on vacation ...


I love this one. How could I not? Milk glass! I have that vase and I've been stalking those candlesticks online. I like that none of it matches, but it all works.

I like the tussie mussie of flowers. Seems a nice touch and a little parting gift for guests.

One favorite I found but didn't post(kinda small picture and copyrighted) had a silver charger (my mom and I have sets of red and silver chargers we share) with clear dishes. I've seen inexpensive clear dish sets at Kmart and always thought they were so versatile. I think that would look amazing with a blue tablecloth and some vintage silver I found a few weeks ago.

Anyway, I could look at these all day, but I will end here.


  1. Awesome pics!! I am hosting Easter and I haven't even started the process of putting together my tablescape. Thank you for the great ideas.
