I can’t believe it’s almost Easter! This year is going by so fast. I love holidays, Christmas and Easter are my favorites. The Birth and Resurrection of our Saviour are definitely reasons to celebrate!
He is Risen!
The Cross is very dear to me because it’s a reminder that Jesus died for us. When I was thinking about setting our table for Easter I knew I wanted to have the Cross to be the focus of the table.
This Cross is also special to me because my mother made it and gave it to me.
I had a rustic tray that I found at the Meander Shop a while back. I thought it would make a good foundation for my center centerpiece. I used a block of oasis to hold the Cross.
I covered the oasis with Spanish moss. I used a garland of greenery around the base of the oasis. I had three twig garlands that I worked around and behind the cross then I topped it with string lights.
I placed the centerpiece on top of a winter white linen tablecloth Topped with a burlap runner.
I placed off white distressed candlesticks on each side of the centerpiece.
I wanted to keep each place setting simple to keep the focus on the cross centerpiece. Each place setting consisted of an off white charger plate, 222 Fifth Lyria Teal dinner plate, lace trimmed napkin topped with the matching salad plate.
This year I decided to also set my breakfast table.
I rarely do this because I don’t need any excuse to eat in front of the TV! LOL
I started off with a white tablecloth.
Then I added these cute blue place mats that I found at Home Goods.
My place setting consisted of a square lace trimmed dinner plate that I found on Etsy, a blue scalloped edge Pfaltizgraff plate, a 222 Fifth Damask black and white plate, topped with a character plate I purchased at TJ Max in a mixed set.
To the right of the plate I used a floral coffee cup on top of a Pfaltizgraff blue and white checked saucer.
My Mother and Sister gave me these sweet bunny serving pieces several years ago.
This cute little bunny looks like he’s smelling the flowers.
I grouped them in the center of the table. I added these beautiful flowers from my neighbor’s tree and jelly beans under the candle for a pop of color.
And there you have it, our kitchen ready for Easter!
But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5 KJV)
