Hopping Into Spring

Welcome to the 343rd Tablescape Thursday!

One of the things I love so much about Marie’s home is how it’s both beautiful and very livable. You immediately feel the love she has for her family just in the way she decorates for the holidays and displays photos of loved ones throughout her home.

In her large living room, Marie has a table behind one of the sofas that works great for impromptu meals or just a place to sit and work or read. This area is also great for squeezing in more folks for dining, especially when Marie is having a large gathering and more seating is needed.

Notice the cute bunny lamps on the table…Marie changes those out seasonally and for spring they are dancing bunnies. Love those lamps!

Let’s take a closer look at her springtime table. I love how she decorated the back of each of the chairs!

Easter Spring Luncheon Table Setting 1

 

So colorful and I love the orange! If you’re not into using a lot of pastels, make your table vibrant for spring with bright spring greens and orange. I never think of orange for spring but I love how this looks! Marie found her dinner and salad plates in HomeGoods. Glassware is also from HomeGoods.

Marie found her flatware on Amazon.

Easter Spring Luncheon Table Setting 2

 

Marie used cute egg cups found in World Market to hold egg-shaped candles. Do you remember the colorful egg-shaped candles she used in her dining room table? Such a great way to use them instead of just saving them for breakfast.

The floral napkins and placemats are from HomeGoods. The napkin rings were found while antiquing.

Thanks so much to Marie for sharing her spring Easter tables with us!

That’s so visitors to your blog will be able to find the party and the other Tablescape Thursday participants. Requiring a link back also prevents businesses from linking up to sell their products. (Yep, that really happens, unfortunately.)

Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.

Please do not link up table settings that were just recently shared in the last few weeks for Tablescape Thursday.

  1. So beautiful! Her tables always amaze me at their beauty and attention to detail, and today is no exception. Love those placemats and napkins!

  2. What a unique and pretty Easter table. Marie never disappoints. I love those cross napkin rings, and the pretty white frames with vintage Easter prints are a clever and fun addition to the table. I’d never be able to put those bunny lamps away. they are wonderful. Love the bright colors on this table, and the pretty napkins tie it all together. Thank you, Susan and Marie, for sharing this inspiration.

    Very pretty and cheerful for Easter or Spring. I too love the bunny lamps, so adorable. I am a big fan of people who go big in decorating for holidays. Just packed away my Easter things- 8 bins. I am very bunny crazy! Love all your tables too, Susan.

    I enjoy Marie’s beautiful home & her lovely tablescapes. Please continue to show her seasonal decorating! So delightful!

  7. Vivid color always works for me so I especially like the way Marie has incorporated it into her table. It would be great to be invited there.

  8. How fun- love the orange. I need to think about different colors like that for Easter.

  9. Linda Page says:

    Wouldn’t it be nice to be a weekend guest once a month at Marie’s home and see first-hand all of her lovely tablesettings and decorations? I will volunteer for that job if it ever comes open!!! I will make the sacrifice!!! lol How fun would that be!!! Love her bunny lamps. Too cute! I would have to find a place to have those out all year long!

  10. Susan ~ I always love looking at Marie’s wonderful decorating. I am amazed at all of the things she is able to get done! She has so many wonderful ideas. The two of you certainly create some beautiful arrangements and inspiring decor!

  11. This is a beautiful room and tablescape! Thanks for sharing and hosting this wonderful post.
    Blessings My Friend,

  12. What a beautiful spring table–so cheerful, so whimsical, so colorful! Thank you for sharing another one of Marie’s lovely tables. And thanks again, Susan, for having your Tablescape Thursday parties. Thursday is my very favorite day of the week for BNOTP. Have a wonderful day.

  13. Such a vibrant table. Lovely placements and napkins and the bunnies are cute.
    Susan, does Marie ever take a day off from decorating, because one occasion follows another after Thanksgiving?

  14. Beautiful!!! I LOVE orange, so this table is a favorite of all the tables you’ve showcased. The placemats are a reproduction Vera and I’m so glad she found a large set, because they can be hard to find. We collectors search for them! I’ve collected Vera Neumann table linens for years and they are so vibrant and spectacular.

  15. What a lovely setting! The color really pops against the richness of the dark wood. Thank you for sharing and for hosting! Have a beautiful day!

    love and blessings~

  19. I love Vera!–and this tablescape. Susan, I have collected Vera linens and dishes for years as well! Love them!

  20. I am SOOO late to the party this week. You know how much I love everything that Marie does. Wish we had a close up of the chair decorations. I am using orange and green this Spring too!!!!!!!!!!! Her table is gorgeous and I love the lamps! Wish I had those placemats and napkins:)

  21. Marie’s tables are always amazing and I never seize to admire her creative talent for themed settings. I love every detail of this whimsical and adorable setting for Easter and Spring.
    I’m sorry I’m so late to the party, as last night I hosted a dinner party at home, so I just had the time to post my two dinner tablescapes just now!
    Thank you for sharing and for hosting this great party, dear Susan.

  22. Just yesterday I was looking at my orange dinnerware. Guess it’s time to use it. Beautiful table Marie and thanks for hosting Susan.

  23. I’m in love with those round picture frames! Any idea where she bought them?

  24. Susan, when I went to Home Goods this week, there were a lot of empty spaces. I think it’s from all of the blogs that mention HG. Good job.
    Marie does a wonderful tablescape; much like you.

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
