Easter Dessert Table

I showed you the Easter egg shelf, but I did not show you what was under it. 

I redid my Valentine's Day table and it is now ready for the next holiday.  I removed the burlap and  layered the table in fabric --

 you may recognize that purple fabric as it's what I used for the dining room tablecloth for Valentine's Day. I found some yellow fabric in my stash and used that to tie in the yellow egg shelf color.  I pinned on a length of twine to make the bunny bunting across the front.
 Of course, most of you know I made that purple/pink quilted table runner that hangs down the center.  There are two of those runners. The second goes across the top of the table.  As I post this, I realize that I made everything on this table, except for the four wooden hinged bunnies in the back and the carrot fence in front of them.  I even made the big wooden Mama bunny on the side.  I think it's time to repaint her face. I may do that one of these days....then again, maybe not.

If I end up having an Easter dinner, then this table can be the dessert table.  I have left a space on the top to hold a few desserts.

I have been playing with a table to go with the new dining room chair covers (not necessarily an Easter table, though it could be with a few changes).  It's a bit more difficult than I thought it would be.

After trying two or three different colors of plates and tablecloths, I came up with these colors:
I am semi-pleased and will continue on some other day.  I need to buy some floating candles for the long row of colored water holders.....OR... my other idea is to buy white daisies and put them in the colored water. They will take on the color of the water. That would be pretty cute,  don't you think?


  1. Zoey- That looks really cute. WHAT? No St. Patrick's Day dessert table at your house?;>)

    I love all your quilted pieces and it looks like you are having fun pairing dishes with your newly recovered chairs.

    Pop by my blog tomorrow-I painted the TV today!;>) xo Diana

  2. You have such cute ideas! Love the Easter bunnies and eggs. I agree, your quilted pieces fit in so nicely with your seasonal decor.

  3. Love it, love it, love it!!! Such a darling Easter dessert table. I wish I had the room to do something like that as well but unfortunately I don't. I'm telling you, I really need a bigger house, having only a 1000 square foot house is not doing it for me! lol

    Such a terrific idea to use coloured water to place candles in or even daisies, I must remember that:-)

    I made those doughnut muffins and posted about them...SO DELICIOUS!! xoxo

  4. That is so cute. I'm just trying to get everything back to a regular home and you are decorating away for the holidays.

  5. How creative that is Zoey!
    I love the blues and greens and yellows you've chosen, I think they compliment the chairs nicely!

  6. You should try an idea I saw up in Lancaster. They made carrots out of burlap! I guess they water washed them-very pale. The tops were I think burlap that was rolled and cut into and lightly green.
