First Day of Spring: Easter Table

Yes, it's "OFFICIALLY" spring today...but here in Indiana, the warm spring weather is holding off a little longer...we only had a high of 45 degrees today.(Brrrrr....not quite fishing/boating weather yet!!)
That doesn't mean that we can't get in the Spring mood by decorating and putting out our springtime dishsettings...
I started with my dining room centerpiece (the same one I made last year and kept it in storage to display again this year.) This moss-covered mound with three crosses is surrounded by a floral display and in front is an open tomb with the stone rolled away - Hallelujah!!
I love this photo of the crosses darkened in the foreground with my lakeview in the background!
Here is a close-up of the tomb, with the stone rolled to the side!
My spring teapot for this tablesetting is one I have had for several years. I love the little saying on the side..."A moment of quiet, a cup of tea, and keep me company."

My tablesetting has 4 spots with teacups waiting to be filled. Here are close-ups of these "spring" flowered cups and saucers.

My polka-dot egg cups are also back out for this seasonal setting. I found these adorable sequin eggs at Meijer. I had some extra flower-shaped cupcake papers from last year that I set my egg cups for extra pizazz.
My nesting finch came out of hiding, as well. Here he sits among the flowers in my centerpiece.
It may be cold outside still, but I'm hoping my Spring table-setting will be a reminder that spring weather is just around the corner. I look forward to seeing all the spring flowers bloom outside, as they are blooming inside at my table today!!!
