It’s All Set- April

Hello my friends, been having a beautiful string of weather here. I feel a definite pep in my step with spring here though we are due to get a succession of rainy days.  A few announcements before we start-

Thanks to all for your input on my shutter paint selection. I have it narrowed down but in the. meantime have also found one more color I am thinking could be “the one”! I will share on Sunday once the decision is made.

I know about 30% of you are not getting my emails via subscription, so sorry! We are aware of it and the newly revised site is very close to happening, once that does this subscription problem will also be corrected once and for all!

Last the porcelain container has arrived to the port! We hope to have it in our warehouse no later than Thurs or Friday. We will start getting orders out immediately upon arrival….so hang tight, if you have an order it will soon be on it’s way!

So happy to be here today with another edition of It’s All Set, a monthly group I am a part of where a group of talented tastemakers  come together to showcase a tablescape they have worked on. Let’s face it doing this is always fun and a great excuse to put something pretty together, kind of like an adults version of “dress up” 🙂

Today’s post was  based upon my Easter brunch table. Let’s call this the Easter table with nine lives as things changed and changed again. Life,  right?  A last minute change meant going from a bigger table for several to a smaller table for four. I quickly reassessed and went to work. I take a layering approach when I work on a table setting, and continue to edit until I get it right. I love the way this table came out, it just felt very springy and Easter like with a touch of elegant whimsy. Take a look-

My Mottahedeh Tobacco Leaf service is always a great starting point as are beautiful hydrangeas-

I had little time and could not find blue/purple stemmed hydrangeas so bought a potted hydrangea plant for $16 and cut them them as stems, got about 9 flowers out of it! Thanks Whole Foods:)

Got my trusty little planter ready and went to work

And my table…..before anyone gets all heated over the wrinkled tablecloth, have no fear I used a little portable steamer and it worked like magic:)

Also added a little Easter cheer to a nearby hall chest

Does it sound crazy to say I was most excited over my moss eggs? LOL they were such an unexpected and wonderful find,I love them. And since having little ones to dye Easter eggs is a closed chapter this is the next best thing.

You will most certainly want to visit all of the other talented bloggers to see what they came up with…always a worthwhile click!

  1. Breathtaking, that china pattern is exquisite and I love the play of colors. Your bunnies, flowers and moss Easter eggs were the perfect finishing touch. Thank you for also sharing the resources, that is really helpful, going to get those eggs for next year. So elegant, and pretty enough to leave the table that way!
    Hope you had a happy Easter.

  2. I’ve long loved the Mottahedeh Tobacco Leaf service. So pretty with your beautiful hydrangeas and blue/white bunnies! A lovely setting all around.

  3. Tina, Please, Please, where can we get those Bunnies, you could add them to your own line. WE NEED THEM!!!

  4. Love the Mottahedah dinnerware, such wonderful color, even for blue and white fanatics. I’m going to remember your move with the hydrangea plant per stems. I think it’s genius!
    Have a great day!

  5. You’ve taken your table to another level. It is understated and elegant. Of course, having the best of the best makes such a difference! You are a very blessed woman. Thank you for sharing your beautiful things and your beautiful taste.

  6. Your table was gorgeous! Love the table setting and addition of bunnies! You are a constant inspiration.

  7. Positively stunning, Tina. Those little bunnies are the cherry on the sundae. Have a great week!

  9. Oh, how I miss being able to Pin from your website!!!! I hope that the new revision will include the Pin button again!
    Thanks,

  10. That china pattern is “smokin!!” Gorgeous tableset!! This year I used…faux grass (LOWES) for a table covering…my s-i-l said he would clear and mow… franki

  11. A question. Are you going to have another opportunity for customers to buy the porcelain blue and white bathroom wastebasket, tissue holder, and toothbrush holder? They were lovely and time slipped by for me to order. Thanks.

  12. Yes please do write a book so we can have your style in all of our homes. Your table setting is gorgeous wrinkles and all, well done. Hope you had a great Easter.

  13. The most beautiful table!!! Gorgeous, just gorgeous, Tina. I also think you need to put out a book!!!! Like now!

  14. Tina, you always have the most amazing dishes! Love your hydrangeas too. Another fun tablescape tour!

  15. I love those moss eggs. This is the first year in 27 years that I have not dyed eggs. I was flying home from my folks’ home and Easter dinner was at a restaurant and you know what? I loved it all! Just like I love how you made the hydrangeas work, and your table looks so yummy. I think this 3rd act in life isn’t too shabby at all. Thanks for the beauty… It is wonderful to have a post from you in the mail.

  16. Tina, this is just beautiful! While I love the plates, the moss eggs are awesome!! Love the way they look in the silver bowl, too. Love it all!

    Lory
