Easter Table and More...

This is our dining room table for Easter dinner tomorrow. I made the egg topiaries using styrofoam eggs and hydrangeas.

Here's a closer look at our centerpiece.

A place setting using my new silverware by Pfaltzgraff in the Winslow pattern, antique dishes in the Rosemont pattern by Thomas Ivory and crystal stemware. The little baskets are filled with Easter grass and a small chocolate egg. The napkin is tied with ribbon with a tulip tucked behind the bow. I made the place cards using a pattern from They have lilies and a pink bow on the side with Happy Easter below. Too cute! The tablecloth and napkins have a tulip design.

This is my Italian Easter Bread fresh out of the oven. I've been making it for 12 years now and is the perfect compliment to ham.
These are the flowers we bought as gifts. I printed and cut out the bunnies on cardstock and put them on skewers as gift tags.
Hope you all have an Easter filled with Blessings!
Alleluia! Christ is Risen!

Your table looks great, I love the topiaries :)

I've seen that bread in cookbooks, but I'm not a very good breadmaker.

Oh, the bread is very easy to make! It's a great bread if you are just learning to bake bread or feel you aren't very good at breadmaking. I use my Kitchen Aid mixer for most of the steps and like to do my kneading by hand, but you could use a dough hook for that too.

Fun! The table is beautiful and you've inspired me to try the bread. I love Taste of Home and was just going through some back issues. I may subscribe again, as there are so many great recipes there.

Happy Easter!

Beautiful table. I love the plates---they are really lovely. The bread must be a hit as it is so festive and looks delicious.
