The Glory of Easter allows Hope to Blossom

Easter tablescaping in a red dining room can be tricky . . .

but my Blue Willow, which is at ease in any season, takes on the challenge.

making a graceful entrance,

to create a comfortable, understated,


Easter breakfast.

(Guess you noticed I changed the vase holding the forsythia to my $1.50 thrifted bunny pitcher half-way through the pics. That's what happens when one finds treasures in the off-season and nearly forgets them when the moment of their big reveal arrives.)

I liked the way the blue willow and Mr. Rabbit on the mantle were peeking through the forsythia. The yellow forsythia also corresponds to the yellow salad plate layer in the tablesetting. (Does one really use salad plates for breakfast? Yes, if it completes the tablescape, one does. Though I'm sure you seasoned tablescapers know what to call the plate layer during the breakfast meal.)

Not to be outdone by the blue willow, the daffodils and the hyacinth stepped into the spotlight outside on Easter morning as well.
