Hello Dear Readers!
Happy Monday!! . . . and as I always say. . . .
it is a great Monday as today is
the day for Monday Morning Blooms!

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.

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

EASTER BRUNCH CENTERPIECE AND TABLESCAPE
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:
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!!!
I hope you enjoyed our Easter themed
Monday Morning Blooms today.
Cannot believe that Easter is only a week away!
