Easter Brunch Centerpiece and Tablescape

Hello Dear Readers!

Happy Monday!! . . . and as I always say. . . .

it is a great Monday as today is

the day for Monday Morning Blooms!

I, along with my lovely Monday Morning Blooms friends,

Lidy, Mary and Pam will be sharing

some wonderful floral inspiration for you to enjoy

and hopefully love to re-create for your own!

Today’s Monday Morning Blooms common theme is Easter.

The images and links to

Lidy’s, Pam’s and Mary’s beautiful Easter inspired floral

creations are at the end of the post.





Where has the time gone?

Most of the Spring Breaks are over

and Easter is around the corner.

I have been planning my annual

Easter brunch with the family,

and experimenting with various table settings.

I was planning  to use my bunny plates;

however, I remembered the vintage Copeland Spode

botanical plates I recently purchased

and thought I would give it a try.

So today you will see one of the table settings

that I may use for my Easter brunch.



Most of my napkin rings and place card holders packed away;

however, I knew I wanted to use these cute bunnies

with the golden eggs on the table,

so I thought, hmmmm….I could use them as place card holders!




I also have to be a bit creative when I need to use a  vase,

as most of them are packed away too . . .

so when reaching for some glasses,

to use on the table, I spotted some champagne flutes . . .

perfect for the hyacinths!



A couple of months ago, while strolling my fav consignment shop

(Always Home, Durham NC)

I spotted these wonderful vintage Copeland Spode

botanical luncheon plates.

In addition to the floral designs,

I loved the scalloped edges.

The dinner plate is Noritake Summer Estate

and the Charger is by Franciscan.





I purchased the tablecloth and napkins years ago at HomeGoods.

No label on the tablecloth so I am unable to reveal the designer.



During the move, I brought over many large baskets of things

to place directly into the rooms

at the  Berry Patch House

I pretty much moved the majority

of my laundry room items this way.

One of the items that was stored

in the laundry room cabinets

that did not get placed in a packing box was this silver cart.



I filled it with little chocolate chicks and it is pushed by

my little chalkware chick that

my sweetie gifted to me many years ago.




A trip to Trader Joe’s yielded:

Calla Lilies

Casablanca Lilies

Gerbera Daisies

Lavender Roses

Hyacinths (in champagne flutes)




The Easter arrangement is more on the casual/whimsical side,

especially with the container,

in which goes so well with the tablecloth.

Therefore, I thought adding “Peeps” was a good thing.




The bad part about using “Peeps”

is that I eat the leftovers in the box!

Who can resist?!



The day I photographed was challenging

as the light was not great due to the weather.

Lots of prayers certainly go out to those

who were affected by the storms that have

and still are ripping through the South.




So here it is….

the first Spring/Easter tablescape and arrangement

in the Berry Patch House…

so looking forward to creating pretty tables

and flower arrangements in the new house.

Can you tell I am getting a tad anxious? I am!!

And . . . this weather is not cooperating at all!



Now, it’s time to visit my very lovely

and talented Monday Morning Bloom friends!!!

  1. Shirley, I have dish envy…I’m in love with your Copeland Spode botanical plates! You score the best stuff at Always Home. Your brunch table is beautiful with your blooms. I so wish we had a Trader Joe’s nearby. Genius to repurpose your flutes as vases for your hyacinths and I adore your carriage of sweet Lindt chicks! Your ‘golden egg’ bunnies make the perfect placecard holders too. As always, it’s a treat to start my day with my flower friends. Thank you for the beauty this morning. I hope you didn’t have any damage from the storms that rolled through last last night, they were fierce. ♥

  2. Shirley, I agree with Mary, I too am envious over your Copeland Spode botanical plates. I think I must make a trip to the consignment shop, it must be a collector’s dream. What a great idea to use flutes for the fragrant hyacinths, I must remember that tip. I love your colorful and whimsical centerpiece with the peeps peeping out! The silver carriage with chocolate bunnies is so eye-catching with your sweetie’s chalkware chick! It is a please to share Monday Morning Blooms with my friends❤️

  3. Beautiful Easter tablescape and seriously you should have been a floral arranger and owned a shop. That is the cutest container for that arrangement Have a fun trip!

  4. Oh those calla lilies and peeps with hot pink are too adorable Shirley! I am always amazed at how many pretty tables and vignettes you are able to style with most of your things packed away…I LOVE the photo of your table with the gorgeous pale blue armoire in the background, soooo pretty! the bunnies holding the golden eggs make wonderful place card holders and the champagne flutes as vases is so clever! the cart full of chicks pushed by a chick is so sweet! Have a wonderful Easter, your table is beautiful!

    Your whole table is a visual brunch for the eyes! The colors in that arrangement just scream SPRING!! I was able to cut a large vase of daffodils on Saturday before the snow came again yesterday. Winter just will not let go here in West Michigan. I’m really praying that’s the last of it and we’re on to warmer weather and sunny skies!

  6. Terri SantaColoma says

    Beautiful. Love the addition of the Peeps to the floral arrangement

  7. nancy Brantley says

    Everything is BEAUTIFUL!

  8. Beautiful table! I must remember to put some Peeps in my next Easter arrangement.

  9. Shirley, your table is so beautiful and I have tablecloth envy over your pretty tablescape. Using your flutes for vases just adds to your sweet colors. The chicks in the silver carriage is so clever and cute. Your flowers are amazing and I wish I had a Trader Joes close by. Beautiful job.

  10. The Peeps are so whimsical! I love that idea, love to see less formal arrangements for Easter…yet if you removed the bunnies the arrangement would be perfect for a formal dinner as well. Your plates are just wonderful, every one is different. That pretty spring like plate is why I chose my Minton Meadow so many years ago. Often our Easter Sunday’s look more like Christmas in this cold climate but when I set the table with that pattern I know Spring has arrived! Happy Easter!!

  11. Penny at Enjoying The Simple Things says

    What a pretty Easter table!

  12. Amy Chalmers says

    I adore that tablecloth!! I’d love to find one for myself and make pillows out of it! Where on earth are you off to now ??!!

  13. Such a pretty Easter table, Shirley. Elegant flowers artfully arranged with a pop of whimsy adding the peeps! Nicely done. It looks so cute in the bunny container and floral cloth. Clever to use your bunnies as place cards.
