LET'S DISH #4...A COLORFUL EASTER





A beautiful Easter it was!


My mom brought us an Easter basket that was shared with our family members that came for Easter dinner. Mom said the lime green wrappers matched our Easter decor :o-)  Joe is off from school this week, and we've planned some day trips to the Finger Lakes and the Adirondacks. So I left the Easter decor up until we return, and am joining Cuisine Kathleen for "Let's Dish". If you celebrate, I hope you had a wonderful Easter.


Is there anything prettier than the first bursts of color in spring?


When I set the table, it reflects my passion and personality. In my garden, the Lenten rose is the first to flower in early spring, around the period of Lent. It's also known as Lenten hellebore or oriental hellebore. They are excellent for bringing early color to the garden and the table.






The dish on the dishes (the photos are from Spring 2011 as I didn't take photos this year)

The dessert salad plate is “Amemone” from the Ambiance Collection. – purchased at Wegman’s several years ago

The salad plate is “Juliet” from the Roscher Collection – purchased from TJ Maxx a few years ago

The dinner plate has been in my collection for many years, and were purchased at Wegman’s. 

Wooden chargers from Pier One

Placemats from TJ Maxx a few years ago

Lime green napkins from Wegmans a few years ago

The Boutique silverware shows up frequently here.

I've included a photo of several Hellebores to give you an idea of the array of colors.

  3. Debbie, the hellebores are gorgeous. I need to see if I can grow these here.
    Your stack of dishes is over the top beautiful. I like the different textures here and the top plate with the anemones is the perfect touch of color. Thanks for sharing your table. Enjoy your time in the mountains. ~ sarah

  5. I do love those lime green wrappers ;) How thoughtful of your mother to think of that!

    This is the first year, ever, that my hellebores bloomed during lent! Most years they bloom at the end of April or beginning of May. Yours are beauties!
