Hello, guess it seems a bit late talking about my Easter table when we are nearly in May. Somehow this post got lost in the shuffle but I was way too pleased with how my table looked to not do a post on it:) Part 1 (click here to see it) showed you the pretty flowers I bought and how they inspired me to create a beautiful Easter table. A far cry from my original idea of doing it more casually in the breakfast room. I realized we hardly ever use our dining room and it was madness to not take advantage of a special family day like Easter. So I went all out:) It was just 6 of us (5 immediate family members and my son’s girlfriend). It was a wonderful day, one that made me really happy. Having all my little birds in my nest is the best thing in life, and just sitting around the table in an intimate way was so enjoyable and meant so. much . We laughed, reminisced, swapped funny stories and just enjoyed being a family gathered around the table together. Amazing how good it feels, though my extended family members were very missed (and we set a full table in their honor). So, here is my table all set up, I tried to include sources for everything as many ask. I literally forgot how enjoyable it is to set a beautiful table. It had been that long. I wish the flowers could have been preserved to look that way forever and I would kept my dining room like this permanently:) Hope you enjoy- ________________________________________ Hyacinths make everything prettier! In the afternoon we set up for a fwe simple appetizers using my figurine plates and new pierced chargers Meanwhile, here is what was cooking on the stove all day, the most incredible Beef Bourguignon- And here is my dining room all set- Many ask about our handpainted murals they are from Paul Montgomery Studios Tablecloth was custom made, it was the perfect light blue and double width so it was a match made in heaven Shown are our gorgeous square scallo9ped silver planters, our beautiful etched hurricanes alongside timeless Imperial Garden china from Mottahedeh Beautiful etched stemware from Williams Sonoma I love mint juleps for so many things, they are perfect for holding utensils, so much more elegant than a flatware caddy (click here to see our mint juleps) Used the small blue village tulip9ieres on the table, the perfect scale for fitting in with everything else (these are on the porcelain presale today) Monogrammed napkins and flatware from our shop Square scalloped chargers coming back in stock next week!

I just can’t wait to celebrate with a special dinner or a small party, something, anything! Wishing everyone a fabulous day. Until next time….
