It’s the first Tuesday of the month, which means it’s TABLETOP TUESDAY! Today, I am sharing a table I set this past weekend for my dad’s birthday dinner. My parents live about an hour and a half away and it’s always a treat if they get to come stay with us for a day or two. My dad turned 71 and we did our best to cram as much of his favorites in the weekend as possible. The first favorite was a big platter of fried pork chops for dinner. Hahaha! We joke that my dad would have everything fried but the sweet tea if he could.
This tablecloth and coordinating napkins was a gift my mom gave me a few years ago. She has a tablecloth very similar and I have always loved it. Sometimes good tablecloths can be an investment, but you will have them forever to use. I grabbed one of my ginger jars and filled it full of grocery store flowers. The bunnies I’ve had for years and I’m guessing they came from Homegoods. The bunny placemats were a recent purchase from Homegoods as well. I saw that blue and white gingham and knew I “needed” them. Hahaha! The blue and white dinner plates were a purchase I made from an antique store and the carrot plates I recently purchased from a local boutique, Wrapsody. The flower napkin rings are from Pier One and I’ve had a year or two maybe. I am not sure if they are still in stock, but I have recently seen some very similar at Hobby Lobby. The silver was my grandmother’s and I am always thrilled to use it!
If you’ve been following along for a while, you know how much I love throwing together an extra special table. We certainly don’t use tablecloths, cloth napkins and special plates on a regular basis, but I try really hard to pull out all the extras at least once a month for my family. And I certainly love pulling out all things Easter with all the beautiful Spring colors.
Have the BEST day, my friends and let me see your Easter tables soon! It makes my day when y’all send me pictures, so keep them comin’!
