Easter Decor in the Breakfast Room

Thursday, March 29, 2018

Literally I think this is the only ray of sunshine that broke through the clouds this morning. 
I wish I'd gotten a shot of the full table, but I didn't work quickly enough!

Happy Maundy Thursday, My Lovelies!  I wanted to show you a little of our Easter decor, but unfortunately it's very overcast today, and the only room with halfway decent light is our breakfast room.  I did get the rest of our home decorated by the skin of my teeth!  ;P

Nothing new on the table this year other than this little bunny planter from MacKenzie-Childs, one of the candlesticks, and the plate on the bottom left side.

This bunny planter is one of my anniversary gifts.  I'll post about our anniversary at a later date.

I love the pattern of my new plate.  It's called Hitchcock Field.

This is the new candlestick in the Cabbage Rose pattern.
I like how the bobeche looks with this pattern.

I don't know why that every single time I want to take blog photos of our home it's overcast.  I guess it's a Murphy's Law thing!  

I'm hurrying to finish my chores because today's Opening Day for Major League Baseball.  The Cubbies are in Miami to play the Marlins, and the first pitch is at 11:40 AM, I think.  

How would you like a nice freebie download for your Easter table?  Daphne's Diary Magazine is offering a very cute free bunny cutlery holder for Easter.  Click on THIS LINK for the PDF file.  I'll be downloading and printing this pretties later today.

By the way, if you haven't signed-up for my newsletter, please do so! I'm tickled that I've gotten lots of positive feedback about it, and I share exclusive content in my newsletter not on the blog.  There's a newsletter sign-up widget at the top of my sidebar.

Until next time...

  1. Hi,
    Where do I sign up for the newsletter? I must of missed something.

    I am listening to the Brewers play. Braun is at First Base!

    Regarding forcing bulbs. I found daffodils to be the most reliable. I was pleasantly surprised how well my tulips did.

  2. I LOVE how bright and happy looking your home is for Easter. It is just lovely-cheerful and fun. You always do such a nice job pulling things together. Hope you have a wonderful, blessed Easter! xo Diana

  3. You don't need any sunshine in that room....your table is bright and pretty enough to light up the whole room! I love the combination of colors and sweet decorative treasures you have laid out. Perfect for Easter. Happy Easter to you!

  4. Oh, this is SO pretty, so bright and cheery and happy! I love every piece, especially that fabulous tablecloth. And you would never know the sun wasn't out in your breakfast room!

    I love Daphne's Diary! Thanks for the link -- I only see the magazine and most of our stores don't have it (or it comes a month after the holiday it's about!)

  5. Your Easter decor is lovely, Ricki JIll. Your MC collection is beautiful. Happy Easter, my friend.

  6. OH my, so many MKC pretties, I just love the bunny planter, but it's all adorable! I hope the sun is out by now, we've had a great sunny weekend on the coast and there are Spring Breakers everywhere! I hope you and yours have a very blessed Easter!
