It was love at first sight when I noticed these little canape plates
a few years ago.
I happily discovered a set on ebay last month!
They were just what I wanted for the farmhouse table.

I planned on a diversion from the normal sweet pastels of Easter.
Soft creams, taupe's and browns were going to be used for this setting.
(another photobomb from Mae!)

Isn't this just the sweetest little pattern
of a french vintage Easter bunny?

The simplistic white eggs......

I suppose the muslin bunny was the first piece
of inspiration to decorate with neutral tones.
Gingham napkins have proven to be very versatile! 

Easter brings forth the images of new life....and gentleness of spirit.
This little Willow Tree figurine
is The Angel of Protection....
she is holding a baby bunny and was
a gift from the Divine Miss M.

It is always a good design challenge to see what
you have on hand to give a layered look.

It's fun to search through your cupboards and 
discover something you have not used in a while.
The little birdhouse was from the
Southern Living at Home collection.
I have had this for a good fifteen years now.

Have you thought about decorating for Spring with
neutral colors, or do you prefer spring pastels?

The great thing about these little plates is 
that they would go with just about any color you
would wish to display on Easter.

Celebrate the season by creating an
organically beautiful setting for entertaining.

  1. That is my favorite table to look at. Gorgeous.

    1. Why I am so glad you enjoyed this Deb! Thank you! It's always fus to put something together with what you have on hand! Wishing you a blessed Easter Day!

  2. This is beautiful and more appealing to me, personally than pastels. I don't do pastels usually, ever.

    I'm going flower shopping tomorrow and depending on what I pick out that will set my palate for the Easter table! I will use my white plates as a foundation.

    Thanks for your beautiful inspiration, Betsy!

    1. White plates are simply perfect to build from aren't they Deanna! I look forward to your photos from Easter...hugs and blessings!

  3. I love pastels at Easter, but this is just charming. I do like the bunny plates...excellent score! What I love best is the rustic silverware setting. Very pleasing!

    1. Obviously, I am in a "!" frame of mind. Sorry about that...

    2. Thank you Vee! I am thrilled you visited today and enjoyed a bit of sweet Easter inspiration! I hope your Easter is enjoyable with those you love! We are indeed blessed!

  4. I love your farmhouse table decor, Betsy.. The sweet little bunny plates make me smile. And the use of the black and white gingham napkins is lovely. I use pastel at Easter on our table, even though I love rich colors. Happy Easter to you and your family! ♥

    1. Thank you for your sweet comments Martha Ellen! I love having you visit! Wishing you a beautiful Easter!

  11. Yours is a very comfortable table, my favorite kind.

  12. You have in my mind the perfect table set up for Easter. I like the checked napkins and just the white eggs. I think I will not color mine and put them on the table like you have.
    Happy Easter
