Easter Tablescape & Cheap Dishes

I love Easter and all that it stands for! I love the pretty decorations...the bunnies, chicks and eggs. I love the fact that Jesus died on a Cross for my sin and arose on the 3rd day! WOW! Lot of things to love about Easter! And....I love my Easter tablescape!



I do adore bunnies. Would like to have some REAL ones...but the DH said, "Too much upkeep". Ugg....

These dishes are simple but yet lovely! Especially when I found these at a yard sale for $10...and I got two sets of these (16) of each item for $10....Since that time I have found more of these dishes along with serving platters, serving bowls and etc.! I probably have enough of this pattern to serve 20 people!!!!




 Decided to use my gravy boat to hold my sweet n' low.



 I just adore my little basket.

 Found these adorable glass eggs at a KNIFE place in Tn. You never know what you will find! 



Love my bunny teapot. A friend gave that to me years ago for Easter. I've had the clear goblits for years. Actually bought those at Dollar General for $1.00 each.



Notice the green coaster my goblit is sitting on?


It is actually a tile....like the kind you purchase to create a backsplash...I saw these and for 25 cents each I thought...How cute to use as coasters!




Awe...my little bunny trinket box...




The wooden napkins rings came from Walgreen's...     2 for $1.00. The pretty napkins which the picture doesn't do them justice came from Little Dolly's in Tn. The bambo silverware came from Walgreen's as well and they were a mere 4 for $1.00. So I got a set of cheap and cute bambo silverware for $6.00 If it only last one season then I've got my monies worth!




The adorable little cross has the words REJOICE on them. I found these at Wal-mart for $1.00 each. Put one at each place setting. 




Another adorable bunny that holds a candle sitting on a framed piece of glass.




The green runner was actually a curtain valance I found in the discount aisle at Walmart for $3.




The silver chargers came from Hobby Lobby for $1.99 each.

  3. Hi Cindy,

    Your Easter tablescape is so beautiful. You can't beat those dishes for only $10. What a bargain! I did notice your green coaster and never thought about using tiles - what a neat idea. Just put a felt backing on them and you are all set. Happy Easter to you!
