Spring, A Tablescape & Moving Boxes

 Well, it's a sure thing...spring is officially here

and the brick cape is ours!

It will soon be our last Easter celebration here in New York and I wanted to plan the day's special table d├ęcor.  So, today, I took a break from packing to set a mock Easter/Spring tablescape and let you all know that I'm still around...I don't want you to forget me!

 


 This is what I played around with today.


 

Vintage, Steubenville serving pieces and white ironstone were lucky goodwill finds...the bright yellow, stoneware plates were a, Mother's Day, gift from my sweet, Kaycie Leigh!


 


 


 

Heirloom, crystal glasses are dear to my heart and always fine their way onto my tablescapes.

 
Here they were from last year's Easter brunch.
 
Since, there will probably be eight of us and this table is set for four, I think I'll mix and match what I have and add some special eggs to the centerpiece for the big day.
 
Spring clover, aka oxalis, a white corn husk bunny and daisy, napkin rings add to the details in the centerpiece.
 
Precious, yellow chicks compliment the yellow accents, just right!

 
 
The sweet, brown rabbit usually sits in our garden for most of the year.
 
 
And finally, today we got news that the rental we have been wanting is officially ours...a brick cape with lots of potential to transform it into a comfortable, temporary, new home.
 
 Here's some pics of the piles of boxes, packed and stacked and ready to go. The rest of the house is a dreadful mess...no more pretty pics of it to share!

 
Still half a house to pack and landscape plants to bring along... I hope they make the trip and adapt to their new home.
 
Our moving date is set for April 15th...I will try to post about our good bye's and our journey along the way!
 
Love, Hugs & Kisses,
JP
