Welcome to the 240th Tablescape Thursday!
I know Easter is long gone but I couldn’t resist sharing one more table setting with you created this year by my friend, Marie for her 6 grandchildren. It’s over-the-top adorable.
Love all the soft, pastel colors. Do you think Marie will adopt us all and make us honorary grandchildren for a just a little while? 😉
Cute, cute cupcakes.
Some cupcakes are decorated with butterflies,
While others have a cute bird perched on top.
I loved the decorative satchels for the chair backs. The granddaughter’s chairs were decorated with bunnies,
While the boy’s chairs were decorated with sweet, little lambs. Soooo cute!
This corner of the kitchen near the children’s table was filled with lots of spring/Easter whimsy.
Just inside Marie’s family room is a small table that’s great for when additional seating is needed.
I love the dancing bunny lamps Marie uses here in her family room for spring. While I was taking these pics, I didn’t notice the book the lamp was resting on. It’s Great American Homes by William T. Baker. I was looking at this very same book on Amazon just a few weeks ago! Using the Amazon “look inside” feature, I discovered Marie and Roy Barnes’ home is one of the homes featured in this book! I e-mailed Marie and told her…of course, she already knew. 🙂 I had never heard of this series but Mr. Baker has written two books under that “Great Amercian Homes” title.
If you have this book, the Barnes’ home is featured in the chapter titled: A Governor’s Personal House. If you don’t have the book, you can tour the Barnes beautiful home decorated for the holidays at BNOTP here: Christmas Home Tours. Just look for the picture links titled,Victorian Home Decorated for Christmas (Part I-VI) for the full tour.
Marie, thanks so much for having us to your beautiful home! Looking forward to all the tablescapes linked for this Tablescape Thursday!
