Pink Glass and Periwinkle Easter Tablescape

The inspiration for this week's table was the plaid place mats that Pat found at the bottom of a drawer. The blue and gray plaid combination was enough to challenge her to come up with a simple but nostalgic Easter luncheon table. (In fact, she found another plaid place mat combination that she is planning to use for next week's table since she had so much fun coming up with coordinating plates this week.)

Flatware is "Pure" by Gourmet Settings
The Pier 1 bunnies come in a boxed set of four different styles
The dinner plate is vintage "Periwinkle" Fiesta(ware) by Homer Laughlin
Once again, Pat's husband went above and beyond for the table - he spray painted eight ugly lacquer chargers with plastic adhesive spray paint to match the place mat. (Pat finds dozens of these inexpensive scratched chargers at thrift stores and saves them for the "right" table)

Glassware is "Rosaline" by Cristal d'Arques-Durand
Pat used simple greenery surrounded by Depression Ware candle holders and sugar and creamers for the centerpiece.

Gray and Periwinkle Blue Plaid Place Mats - from Pier 1 four or five years ago
