Simple Easter Sunday at home. Here are a few shots around the house today. I have been trying to pare down my decor and not go crazy with a lot of novelty items for holidays. Today I am using a few things I have had for many years. I did put an Easter wreath on the front door - same one I've had for 8 years or so.
Simple wreath of eggs on my Swedish 1770 cupboard.
Always love getting this little flying rabbit on a stick out each year. So fun. I've probably had him around 20 years. Wish I had the creativity to create things like this. Love his egg.
Fried oyster breakfast, a tradition from Rick's side of the family.
Another long time decor piece, this birch wreath with blue eggs on the console table with glass bottles from France and glass floats.
For today's tablescape, I chose a blue charger Lacque de Chine from Haviland. Placemats from Williams-Sonoma. Ricci gold plated stainless steel flatware.
I started this family tradition of using covered glass objects at each person's place setting for holiday meals. For Easter I have clear glass rabbits from Williams-Sonoma filled with gifts for each guest. I believe these glass rabbits were made for W-S by Smith Glass of New England. I've had these about 20 years.
My theme today is blues and greens fresh for Spring. Dinner plate is Pompadour by Charles Field Haviland. Love the hand painted birds all round the rim. Inside the dining room you can hear birds chirping nonstop. Great fit.
If you know me, my tables are all about the mix of high and low. I don't care where something comes from as long as it can hold its own - trash or treasure. These bunny plates were about $8 at Pottery Barn. They originally came in different colors but I only chose the aqua ones.
Simple and cheap stemware - clear and bubble glass.
I do love the color aqua. This is an antique French monogrammed gravy boat.
Aqua pedestal cake plate pulled out of the cupboard.
Huge green bunnies for the centerpiece. They are made out of birch sticks and a covering of faux moss. Ribbons around their necks. Everybody who sees these wants one. Kicking myself for not purchasing more when I found these.
Rick put a ribeye roast in the oven for dinner.
I worked in the garden a little bit this morning. Snow Drops are still pretty as well as the Daffodils. White Dogwood tree is starting to come out.
And, last, here is a sneak peak of one of my new items being introduced at High Point market in a couple weeks. Not a good shot as it was taken on the loading dock. Swedish barrel chair with nickel sun faces on the inside back. For April market, I am introducing Elegant Hand Carved Barn Doors - four styles, some new French shell stools, a Gustavian bench, a huge cathedral candlestick and my triangular sunburst mirror in gold this time. More photos later after market closes.
Hope you are having a wonderful Easter Sunday!
