Easter Tea Table

Happy Easter Everyone!!
It’s hard to believe that the Easter season is upon us!! But, I am definitely ready…especially for Spring to arrive!! We’ve had a pretty cold and dreary winter. I had been planning on sharing my Easter tea table setting for a while, but once again, have just not found the time. So, today(the day before Easter Sunday), I decided to have a little tea and some desserts that I purchased at a local bakery
Because (to me) Easter is, first and foremost, about Christ's death on the cross and His ressurection from the grave, I wanted to emphasize this in my theme.

With a little moss covered styrofoam, some rocks and sticks, I made this simple centerpiece. (I first got the idea off of Pinterest, but made some changes to make it quick and simple to put together-about an hour to complete)
 Here is my pastel tablesetting.
Each place setting has a different teacup and matching plates.







 Of course, I always have to share the lake view through my dining room window.

 Today, I am serving three different desserts with my tea. In front- lemon tea cakes; to the left-mini cranberry scones; to the right-peanut butter no-bake cookies.
Tea is being served in a new white "Tl Mulino" teapot, I purchased a T.J. Maxx. I love that it is a large capacity (8 cups) teapot.
 I also have my ceramic Easter bunnies and bird (not shown) back, as well as my egg cups. This year, instead of Easter eggs, I added some small flowers in the egg cups.



May you have a joyous Easter
and a happy Spring!!!


Blessings, Ann

  1. I love that moss arrangement with the crosses. I was thinking what a great project that would be even for children. You sure have terrific window views!

    1. Thanks, Bernideen. It would be a great children's craft project...very simple.The original ideas suggested growing grass seed, but that would require some time for it to grow. I didn't have time, as i made it right before Easter. Our view is our favorite thing about our home!! Thanks for stopping by and for hosting the "Friends Sharing Tea" link-up.

  4. Your table setting is lovely, Ann, and I especially love the centerpiece! That really is a wonderful way to get the message across and I immediately thought that it would be a super project for little ones to do with you. So glad you shared with us and joined me for tea. Have a lovely day.

    1. Thanks, Sandi! I thought it was a wonderful display of the meaning of Easter. I have actually left as the centerpiece, as I love how it looks, even if Easter is officially over. :)

  5. Wonderful idea using the crosses in the moss. And I also like the idea of using egg cups as vases. Not everything always needs to be used for original purpose. I can be fun to change it up a bit.

    1. I agree, Beth. I actually got that idea off of Pinterest, as well. What did we do before Pinterest? LOL!
