Dinner Table of Miss Forgetful!8:34 AM
While on a very last minute and seemingly impossible search for the rolls I needed so I could make Easter breakfast I realized I hadn't given any thought at all as to how I was going to decorate our Easter dinner table. Oops! This dawned on me after spending about 5 minutes in my third supermarket.
I had already looked at the garden items because I, of course, can't go into a store only for the item I need. Then I saw a display of potted Easter Lily's. That is the point where I remembered I had a table to set! I'm not always the best planner.
The store I was at has a garden center so I decided to pop outside for a minute to look for inspiration. I quickly found 4 plants I loved and tossed them into my cart. I chose some white and some purple. I then headed back to the garden area and picked up two candleholders I had been admiring. I thought they would make fantastic vases! A quick trip near the candle area supplied a little added character. Then off to find the rolls. Would they have them? Yes, one bag. The kicker - I had to buy 72 rolls! Friends and family if you want to make the Breakfast Butterscotch Rolls please call! I'll make up a carryout bag.
Here are the final results. At the center I layered a couple platters and used a little number 4 jar for April 4th. Mercury glass candleholders added a little sparkle. Lastly, I used a couple of eggs I had picked up at Pier One.
Here is one of the table settings. I decided to use my simple creamy white plates and my pink and white bowls. I love my bowls! I used drinking glasses I purchased from the new Katie Brown line of dinnerware. I like that they are super simple!
Just a closer view of the centerpiece.
Here is my added character. I found the pair of cute little birds on clearance for $2.50 each. Noah said that was a steal!
My candleholder turned vase! Worked out perfectly. I love it when that happens.
Shabby chic napkins with beaded butterfly holders.
Breakfast turned out great. Glad I shot a picture of it sitting on this table. Fits in the post that way!
A final photo. I just wish that the drapes were up. I have made a little progress in that area. I have the drape fabric and rug picked out. I am still on the hunt for the right fabric to cover my chair cushions with. I know what I want - I just can't find it!
Here is a sneak peek at the fabric I am using for the drapes. It has a lot of texture which will add some interest. I like that they will be very neutral.
Thanks for stopping by! I'll share the kids dinner table a little later in the week.
