Easter Parade or How Many Salt & Peppers Can She Use?
Once again it's Tablescape Thursday sponsored by Susan at BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH!
Thanks Susan for hosting Tablescape Thursday every week!
Here is my Easter table and I have to warn you if you have high blood pressure - there are a lot of salt shakers on this table!!!
It all started with a simple white tablecloth, gold chargers, white Big Lots dishes and my bunny salad plates from Cracker Barrel last year. I used some Fosteria stemware as well as some antique goblets a friend was giving away. I thought it needed more color, so I added striped napkins from Target (clearance last summer). THEN I used the matching Cracker Barrel egg cups as individual salt cellars along with my grandmother's salt spoons and an egg from Cracker Barrel as individual pepper shakers. Sounds pretty standard so far.

Then I decided to use my Target bird salt & peppers - the ones that everyone in Blogland owns with the matching bird tealight holders. They tied in well with the nests I got from Tuesday Morning.
Well, I have a set for each end of the table, so we already have lots of salt and pepper for the table! But this set is just so cute and Eastery I had to put it on there too!!!
I also use this little green glass rabbit as a butter dish complete with a spreader that one of my daughter's gave me as a birthday gift.
My centerpiece is a large glass tray with a glass pedestal plate on it with a smaller pedestal plate on it with an antique glass basket on it. I have added a wreath and egg candles all around. The ramekins I will fill with Easter candy before the big day!
Here is another overview shot of the table:
And here is the dining room mantle!
I hope you like this Easter table even with the high sodium content!
