Egg-cellent Spring Tablescape

Happy Spring Everyone!  As you have probably already guessed by the name of the title,  today's tablescape features EGGS.
My centerpiece is my copy cat version of one that I saw in an old magazine I have.  I think it might have been last years Southern Lady Entertaining Issue.  I used faux lemons topped with egg shells that I cleaned.  I inserted a few peeps in a couple of them.  Then for the finishing top, I tucked in a few faux white flowers.  It's so springy! 
On each side of the centerpiece, I set an egg shell on top of a clear candlestick and inserted some yellow blooms.

My place setting consists of yellow placemats (Marshalls) with sparkly threads running through them.  Dinner plate is Noritake Richmond, salad plates were a recently purchase from the Salvation Army.  In the center of the salad plates, I used a Depression Glass dessert cup filled with Easter grass and a decorative egg.  Normally, I tint coconut green and use jelly beans but I didn't have any on hand.

 I almost forgot the tea glasses.  They are Mikasa "The Ritz."   I hope you enjoyed this week's tablescape.  Please check out the other sites I am linking to below.

  4. I absolutely love the white centerpiece compote! The design on it is so open and lacy. It's beautiful! It looks really terrific with the fun design you created for it, too! That must have taken a tremendous amount of patience to crack all those egg shells in half. NO WAY could I get them to crack that well! Anytime you want to send me those Mikasa "The Ritz" iced teas to go with the champagne flutes I have in that pattern, just feel free! :-) :-) :-) Have a great weekend!
