Tablescape Thursday......one more Easter Egg Hunt!

Time for our ever fun Tablescape Thursday again.
Please check out her wonderful blog and see who else is setting a table this week!

One more Easter table this week, I changed up the kitchen table one more time before Easter
This is where Ron and I had our Easter breakfast.
Can you count how many Easter eggs are on this table?
(Click on any photo to closer)
This pretty Easter egg cookie jar is what started the whole table.
Set up on a cake stand covered by a pretty egg inspired doilie I got from a
fabulous eBay seller ( who makes them) years ago.
The cute egg candles in the cups on the plates were a gift from my dear friend Marilyn this year.
The place setting ; Bordallo cabbage majolica dinner plates found at ROSS, Portmeirion botanic pink salad plates found at Marshalls, Williams and Sonoma egg shaped dessert plates found at the thrift store, Pocka dot egg cups found at our Safeway store on sale this year, pastel plaid napkins from Marhalls, green napkin rings from a wedding gift, egg candles, everyday Oneida flatware, peach and pink colored stemware gift and thrift store finds, and a pink tablecloth.

I found this cute set of bunny salt and pepper shakers recently at a thrift store.
So they had to grace the table under a cloche on a Bordallo cabbage cake stand.

A closer look at my pretty egg cookie jar.
I also decided to put faux Easter grass around the base of the cake stand for some texture.
Hopefully to make it look like it is setting in a nest.

I also scattered around the table these little chick candles in
egg cups for some added fun!

It is all looking so Eggstra Special, now lets eat!
