Easter Blessing to Everyone!

Our family will be dining out on Easter Sunday this year, but I decided to set an Easter tablescape for a virtual tea party  for my blog readers.  I bought the bunny plates at Mervyn's in 1994.  Do any of you remember that store? 


After I got the table all set, I realized I could have used my pink depression glass dinner plates as chargers, and the coordinating teacups and saucers [Sharon pattern] instead of the bunny mugs,  but since it's Easter I decided to let the bunnies stay!

It was fun to see these dishes again.   Our family has grown in size since I purchased them, so they don't get used much anymore.

A lemon "basket cake" is a perfect Easter dessert.   The photo is a cake I made for a previous Easter dinner.   I think a pot of second flush Darjeeling tea would accompany this cake nicely.

While looking at old Easter photos I came across two that I just have to share.  They're of my two granddaughters.   At the time they were almost two and three years old.  [Soon they'll be 16 and 17.]  I'd sure like to know what Brianna was telling Marissa that captivated her attention.  Her expression is priceless!

It wouldn't be Easter without Easter bonnets, and here are the girls again a couple of years later.

 Today I'm joining "Friends Sharing Tea" at Bernideen's Tea Time Blog.

Wishing Everyone a Glorious Easter Because of our Risen Savior!


  1. Doesn't time fly by- and what a lovely table you set!

  2. Fun to see your table scape and your grand daughters. I have a first grandbaby coming in September, but have been informed I cannot show pictures on my blog. I love seeing peoples grandchildren and children. Happy Easter to you! We will be having our annual Easter Tea.

  3. Happy Easter to you and your family!

  4. Charming! I loved getting to see the pretty tablescape as well as the adorable pictures of the girls.
