Easter Bunnies and Tulips Table

"Sweet" is the only word that I can use to describe this week's table. I fell in love with the bunny accent plates this year at Pier l, and much to Pat's dismay, had to have them knowing she would use them sometime. Like the good tablescape trooper that she is, Pat set the table right away using the new plates....
I especially love this week's table because Pat used one of my very first Depression Glass purchases - the yellow "Cremax Bordette" sandwich plates as chargers. They were made by MacBeth-Evans Glass (part of Corning Glass Works) and marketed as "resilient to chips" from 1938 to around 1944. I figured that they must be since there is a lot of them still  around. 

This is a "Rose" Fiesta(ware) dinner plate by Homer Laughlin

I knew I had to have these sandwich plates ("Cremax Bordette" by MacBeth-Evans) when I first saw them

Instead of a placemat, Pat used one of our favorites - a simple terracotta tile from the building/hardware center

Pat used large glassware since the place setting was "substantial" - from the Dollar Tree

Pat's sweet husband made the large wooden centerpiece box for us two years ago
