It's become a tradition for me to come up with a new Easter tablescape every year and share it here. Though I've been absent from the blog, I thought that this would be a good time to come back and share this year's table.
Every year I've got a starting point, whether it's an inspiration photo online or a tablecloth. This year's starting point is the cabbage plates that I picked up last year.
I found an April Cornell table runner that I knew would look great with the plates and napkins with the sweetest matching blue edging at Home Goods. I love April Cornell table linens. I have several table runners and I love their beautiful designs and quality. I embroidered the napkins with our monogram to give them a bit of personalization.
And, of course, flowers. The one time a year that I do a big arrangement. Although, I can I do a little flower-related vent? I always go out, looking for gorgeous magazine worthy flowers in the stores and I can't find them. Even at the nice grocery stores like Wegmans. Grocery stores: please stock something besides roses, tulips and hydrangeas -- at least at Easter. First world, ridiculous issue, without out a doubt.
It's just going to be the three of us for Easter this year. Glenn's mother was planning on visiting, but she came down with the flu. I hope that all of you have a wonderful Easter!
