The {belated} Easter table

We had 10 adults and two littles at the table this year but I never got around to posting photos. Easter is so easy and joyful for me. My dining room walls have changed since last Easter as you can see in the photo below. We removed the pussywillow wallpaper that everyone enjoyed over the years. I felt it was time for a new clean look. We chose Bottlenose Dolphin (Valspar) for the dining room walls.
In this photo, you will see the pussywillow wallpaper from Easter 2018. My special blog friend Kitty recently asked me about our dining room renovation, and since it has been one year since we completed it, I thought I would share it. 
Our "Mountain Breaths" cheese board, which we serve every time we have guests. I bought this beautiful board from a blog friend three years ago.

  2. Your table looked gorgeous, Deb! Love your wall color too! Have a great week.

  3. Debbie, your DR walls are very inviting in that Bottlenose Dolphin color. I think it creates a great setting for dining and conversation and, of course, an excellent backdrop for MC! Very pretty tablescape!

  4. Debbie, I love the new wall color, and the table is so inviting with your pretty MKC details. There is something so regal and fun about dining at a long table. I'm glad you shared the photos. And Lily and Xavier are so adorable sitting on the steps. Xavies holding Lily's shoulders and those little feet! of Lily's make the cutest photo! They are going to grow up being good friends!

  5. Love your new color and all the wonderful MKC! Adorable step sitters!

  6. I LOVE the new dining room color, Debbie!! It makes a perfect setting for your MKC decor. The arched window is such a pretty piece, and the wreath adorning it looks so welcoming. Xavier and Lily are just the cutest littles to make everyone joyful! Thanks for sharing the renovation with us. ❤️

  7. Deb, I think the new color for the walls is fabulous. I loved the wallpaper too so I'm sure it wasn't an easy decision to change. I always love a cheese board and all your pretty Easter MC pieces. But, the sweetest pic is the one of your grands. Xavier is assuming the role of big boy taking care of little Lily. Just adorable!


I'm so happy you decided to stop by my blog. Please leave a comment as I enjoy hearing from each and every one of you!
