Colorful and Fun Easter Table

Since we hope to participate in Cuisine Kathleen's 8th Annual St. Patrick's Day Blog Party next week, Pat wanted to "slip in" an early Easter table beforehand. Here's what she came up with:

The green "grass" placemats are actually cut from a new indoor/outdoor patio rug from Costco that Pat found. Her sweet husband cut it up into 16 placemats of two different sizes with enough for a runner down the center left over if we want.

Pat selected "Calypso" flatware with the round bead-like handles to match the glassware

First layer of the place setting is an egg-shaped plate from Pier 1 two or three years ago

Next is a "Rose" Fiesta luncheon plate

Once again, the true color of the "Sunshine" Fiesta dinner plate did not photograph well 

One of my favorite chargers - from Maryland China Company

Where it came from:
