Some of you may remember the adorable Bethany Lowe Jester Chick that I bought on a shopping trip to Pine Mountain, Georgia. I wrote about him in my Easter post HERE. I was so excited to be able to use him for my Easter table this year, but alas (!), that did not happen. Two extra people were added to the guest list and I realized that I did not have enough plates to use, even if I mixed up the sizes of the plates. Well, I did have enough, but one of the plates only worked, as the middle plate. I was so frustrated that I ordered more from Replacements, but I knew that the order would not arrive, until after Easter. I love Replacements, but the turn-around of orders is definitely not as fast as some other merchants.
What to do? I found these cute bunny plates that I had bought a couple of years ago at Tuesday Morning. They were having a sale on Bordallo Pinheiro and I bought several things that day. I had never used them in a post, but I had only six of them (what was I thinking, when I purchased only six??) - not enough for the group that I was having for Easter. I, also, had seven Bordallo cabbage plates and decided that I might be able to mix all of these in with my Minton "Marlow" china. I have ten dinner and salad plates of those.
These are the two different stacks of plates that I used. I had plenty of my Maryland China white chargers. I, also, had enough placemats to use the same ones at every setting, but I decided to mix those up, too. On one type of setting, I used a solid purple place mat and on the other one, I used a lavender gingham one.
This is how the overall table looked.
I used two different Fostoria glasses. The green tumbler is Fostoria "Mesa" and the lavender stem is a Fostoria "Fascination" water goblet.
The sterling is Gorham "Strasbourg" and the napkins are an Etsy find.
The centerpiece is a purple glass bowl that I found at Ross with an added bird's nest inside. On one side of the bowl is a bunny that I found at Tuesday Morning and on the other side is the bunny teapot that I purchased, when I bought the bunny plates.
So now, are you ready for the promised Easter surprise??? After I had completely re-done my table, two large boxes arrived from Replacements. All of the china that I needed for my Easter chick table was there - early!! It was wonderful, but I just did not have the energy or will to completely re-do everything, again. This year, we will celebrate with green and purple. As for the Jester Chick - there is always next year! Happy Easter (again!).
