Happy Easter

In your Easter bonnet with all the frills upon it! Well, I didn’t have an Easter bonnet this morning since we are celebrating Easter at home. I do however have an Easter basket with all the frills. I selected a few bulbs and flowers at the garden center yesterday to use in a favorite basket for a centerpiece. Pretty pink tulips and lavender and it smells heavenly

These will go in the flower beds later in the spring to bloom next spring

I decided to set a table in the study using my round table. I am using cream colored round placemats from Etsy,  MacKenzie-Childs Parchment Check dinner and salad plates.  The chargers are glass with gold trim I've had forever.

Napkins from Crown Linen Designs and
 napkin rings from Pottery Barn

I love using this table without a cloth, the flatware really pops against the wood

Jay Strongwater rabbit and rooster
gifts through the years from my sweet sister

Wishing everyone a Blessed Easter!

Thanks for stopping by. I would love for you to leave a comment, it's the only way I know you stopped by.



  1. Thank you for your sweet Easter wish. Your Easter basket is stunning! The beautiful cross is so lovely in your basket against the lavender and tulips and the purple sheer bow is the perfect touch. I love everything on your table. You have the most beautiful collectibles and stunning linens and china. I love your setting and you are right everything looks so nice on the bare wood.
    Beautiful post.

  2. Coucou Emily, merci beaucoup de tes voeux en ce lundi de Pâques.
    Magnifique petite table en duo, je craque complètement pour ce superbe panier fleuri ainsi que pour tes assiettes et serviettes. J'aime aussi beaucoup dresser une table ou créer une mise en scène directement sur le bois.
    Très belle semaine, bisous.

  3. Happy Easter Emily! Your Easter basket centerpiece is gorgeous, and what a brilliant idea for your Easter table! Your plate stacks are beautiful and the Jay Strongwater pieces are so unique and pretty...wasn't the weather wonderful Easter weekend, such a gift to be outside! I love the cross in your basket, so perfect!

  4. Emily, I like a small round table for two. Your's makes the perfect setting! You already know I adore and admire your beautiful parchment check ceramics. They really set an elegant table. Your Jay Strongwater pieces are delights. I have one of the roosters. Charming little fellows!
    Happy Easter week!

  5. Thanks Smily for your sweet visit. I hope your Easter was full of blessings. The Easter basket is gorgeous filled with fresh blooms. Love your sweet collections. I am admiring your Parchment Check. I only wished I had ordered some before they discontinued it. Have a lovely week ahead.

  6. Your basket is beautiful and your table so very pretty! I hope you had a fabulous Easter!

  7. Beautiful table, as always, Emily. I love the wood of that table too. I always thought it so nice to buy bulbs and plant them later. I hope your Easter was enjoyable.

  8. Just lovely - I really like how you used the compotes as baskets, cute idea! Hope you enjoyed the day!

  9. So much to love: the Easter basket centerpiece, the embroidered napkins with the little crowns, and of course the parchment check! Beautiful table, Emily! I hope y'all had a lovely Easter!

  10. I love everything on your table Emily. You have the most beautiful collectibles and stunning linens and china. Hope you and Jim are doing well. xo

  11. Such a cheerful basket, Emily, I love all your decorations. Hope you had a wonderful Easter.

  12. I am enjoying your pretty tablescape on your round table. I always loved designing tablescapes on my round table. Sadly, I have not used it since moving to Kentucky. Maybe in the future, I will have a chance to. Love your rabbit and rooster by Jay Strongwater. I am not familiar with his work but need to check him out. Your basket filled with flowers, butterflies and eggs make a great centerpiece for your table. Take care!
