Happy Easter










For Easter dessert we set up a buffet.





Most of these pieces have been collected over time, and most of them came from second hand stores and vintage shops, except the two birds, the alphabet plates, flamingo glasses, and crown.






I placed the Lemon meringue pie in the Limoge dish to hide the pie plate, and then I elevated it on the cake plate.  If you think you know the rabbit,  you probably do.  It's Peter Rabbit.









The table cloth was made from old sheets, but I think I will press it the next time.






 I found the French lemonade and the pink lemonade at World Market and the glasses were an Ikea find some time ago.  I gave the glasses as a gift to my daughter, because they look pretty with her Alice and Wonderland china.

  21. Hi Sue,

    Such an elegant dessert table, reflecting the peace and calm of the day. Robins' egg blue accents, lemon meringue pie and pink lemonade; how sweet!

    Yes, He has risen! Or, as we say in Greek, 'Alithos Anesti!'.

    Have a wonderful week|!
