Well dear friends, Easter day is on it’s way, and spring has truly arrived here in Kentucky! Over the past three weeks we have had the most beautiful show of daffodils and I have been savoring every minute of their beauty.
When I was coming up with ideas for the Easter Tablescapes Blog Hop hosted by sweet Chloe of Celebrate and Decorate, I was hoping to use lots of fresh daffodils in my design. This week the daffodils peaked, so the timing of the daffodils in full bloom and the tablescape hop could not have been more perfect!
If you are a regular blog reader then you will know that I love daffodils (and all spring flowers!) Today I am so excited to share my Vintage Dishes and Daffodils Easter Table For Two and to be joining joining 21 blogging friends for this inspirational blog hop! You will find a complete list of hop participants at the end of this post. If you are coming over from Our Crafty Mom or if you just happened to be visiting today, I am so happy you are here. Now let’s take a look at my little Easter table for two!
This tablescape was inspired by all the daffodils and some pretty vintage dishes I scored for a few dollars at a thrift shop back in late winter. I only found two plates, two soup bowls, two salad bowls, a sugar bowl and and creamer, so I didn’t have enough pieces to do a full tablescape on our large farm table in the dining room. Just for fun I moved our small drop leaf breakfast nook table to the center of the music room and set up a pretty little vintage Easter tablescape.
(Note: For a few photos I did have to move one glass to the wrong side of the place setting just so you could see more of the centerpiece.)
I pulled up our two vintage wing chairs for seating and added some pretty green checked pillows to tie in with all of the green I used in the tablescape. Lace place mats from Hobby Lobby, linen colored napkins and a DIY painted burlap runner add a bit of vintage farmhouse style and texture to the table. I also added a thin runner of sheet moss in the very center of the table. You may recognize my .60 Dollar Store green stemware from my Rustic Farmhouse St. Patrick’s Day Tablescape. I just love these glasses!
I am smitten by these vintage dishes that I scored for less than $10.00. The pretty yellow flowers aren’t daffodils, but it all works.
The colors are so versatile, you might just see the dishes turn up again in a summer or even a fall tablescape. The pattern is Braemar English Staffordshire Classic White by J & G Meakin, England. I will certainly be on the lookout for more pieces on my junkin’ adventures this spring and summer.
The table is a bit too small for a big centerpiece, so I put the small whitewashed dough bowl that I shared in my Spring Is In The Air Dough Bowl Display in the back of the table instead of the center. It is filled with shredded vintage book paper (Easter grass) a burlap carrot, mossy Easter eggs, yellow and green Easter eggs, and vintage bottles filled with faux white tulips, bluish-gray pussy willow branches and several daffodils freshly picked from our yard.
The pussy willow branches and daffodils tie in beautifully with the flowers in the dish pattern.
I love the pretty sacred Easter egg in the dough bowl which perfectly matches the dishes and tablescape theme too. I always like to incorporate sacred references in my Easter vignettes. After all, Jesus is the real reason for the Easter season! Oh and isn’t that little chick just the cutest? There are three of them chirping around through the daffodils, herbs, and Easter eggs that are scattered down the middle of the table.
I just can’t get enough of these adorable little baby chicks that I bought at Hobby Lobby last year. I found the vintage daffodils postcard back in March for fifty cents at an Antique shop and I adore it too.
To complete my Easter table for two I just had to add a bunny of course! In the background you can see another pretty thrifted bunny that I shared in my Spring Home Tour.
My little bunnies just keep hopping from room to room and I never know where they will end up! At first I was going to use this bunny for today’s tablescape but he was a just a little too big.
I also tried out this bunny on the table but he was a bit too big too. Nevertheless, he looks at home sitting on top of the piano anyway. I love his music note and French script ears and torso!
I think my little white shabby bunny is just the right size.
I really had so much fun putting this tablescape together because I love daffodils, I love green, and I love spring! Most of all, I love that I did not go out and spend a single penny on this tablescape. I have had the dishes in storage and everything else was pulled from other spring vignettes or my Easter stash. All the beautiful daffodils were free gifts from nature!
