Easter Tablescape

Photobucket

When I begin a tablescape, I never have a picture in my mind of the completed project.  I decide on each element as I go.  As I started this table, the only item I knew I wanted to use was my Indian Saree as a table runner.  My sister, Lisa, brought it to me from India last winter.  The color is perfect for Easter.

A Saree fabric is 5-7 metres long.  I have folded this over several times.  It is so very beautiful!

Photobucket

The Saree is so elegant that I needed “Easter baskets” that were the same.  Teacups were the perfect choice.

Photobucket

Each “Easter basket” holds a chocolate treat nestled in Easter grass.

Three pots of spring bulb flowers are tucked into a basket and then the tops of the pots are hidden with some excelsior.  Natural looking eggs (read plastic) are tucked in around the flowers.  The little cross was made by our son, many years ago in Sunday School.

Doesn’t a lily just say Easter to you?  Me too!

This is Peter!

On the cross reads, “Jesus said, It is finished”.
  John 19:30

However, the cross is not the end of the story.   Praise God for an empty tomb.


But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified.  He is not here, for He is risen, as He said.”  Matthew 28:5,6


Wishing you a most blessed Easter celebration with those you love.  Happy Easter!

thank you for your visit and your kind comment.
To use a Saree as tablerunner is a fantastic idea. And it has a wonderful vibrant color which is great with the yellow. The tea cups make indeed precious Easter baskets. I like how you said, the cross was not the end of the story. Thank you for sharing your pretty Easter table.
Best greetings, Johanna

Nancy @ Nancy's Daily Dish - First things first: Thank you Lord for sending Jesus to save us all!
Your table is simply gorgeous! I love the turquoise and yellow combination. The Saree is such a pretty piece…I love that you used it for your table and worked around it to create this pretty tablescape. The cross in the flowers is great!
I sometimes work my tables up in the same way…I just begin and add to as I go until I think it’s done.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful table.

Leslie's Garden - I can certainly see why your saree was such a great inspiration for your Easter table. It’s lovely and fun and would be a setting I would love to sit down to. I love your idea of using the tea cups as “baskets”. I like how you tied your silverware with the cute little ribbon bows, too!
