I am sharing a first look at our new home with our dining room set for Easter. What I want to share with you today are these cool gold placemats I found after Christmas at Home Goods and they were just $6.00!
I thought they were perfect for an Easter tablescape with their lovely woven nest look!
Here I’ve paired these gilded placemats with some vintage serving trays I painted white a couple of years ago. As I was unpacking china from boxes this week, it was fun looking for china which would be good to go with this tablescape that said spring and Easter!
This set came straight from England in the early 2000’s from my sister-in-law and my middle brother. They had shopped the seconds stores up in the Stoke-on-Trent potteries area. (My brother was stationed in England for four years with the USAF at RAF Molesworth, a tri-base area in northern England.) These were a gift for Christmas and my birthday one year.
My tablescape today doesn’t shout Easter with bunnies and such but is instead a gentle ode to spring ~ handmade tulip napkins; a fresh bouquet with soft yellow and white flowers; and the soft greens, blues, yellow and rust bands on Wedgwood’s Queen’s Ware “Sarah’s Garden” plates and teapot.
The teacups are fresh with their roses and florals and are part of my extensive collection of vintage china. Many are now quite old and are just used for display.
|Bunnies however do make an appearance in the hutch!
Somewhere in a few last kitchen boxes are a set of creamy white eggcups from my original Villeroy and Boch “Botanica” set. When I was an exchange student to Germany as a 19 year old, I carried these eggcups home in my carry-on bag.
Guess they will make an appearance later on. Too bad as they would have been perfect with these placemats!
This tablescape would be easy to recreate in your home with simply decorated tableware you may already own ~ part of the fun of setting a beautiful table! I hope this table setting has inspired you.
Well that’s it for me for today ~ I will share more of this table photo shoot soon. I want to thank you so much for stopping by! If you have enjoyed this post, I’d love it if you’d follow me here on my blog and/or on any of my social media sites, too.
