Spring Easter Table Setting with Daffodil and Moss Centerpiece

Welcome to the 187th Tablescape Thursday!

Greetings!  Hope it’s as beautiful where you are as it is here in Georgia.  This has been such a wonderful spring!  As I looked through the photos for this post, I noticed the background is changing with each week’s table setting here on the porch.  It’s getting green and woolly out there…love this time of year!

For this Tablescape Thursday, I’m sharing another spring setting.  This tablescape would also work well as a table setting for Easter, too.

Found these cute bunny planters for the centerpiece at Tuesday Morning.  They were only $7 each.

It’s been a long time since I’ve used this vintage 60’s Metlox china.  The pattern is Poppytrail, Sculptured Daisy.  I found it one day antiquing.  I had just added on the porch and it seemed the perfect dishware for sunny days on a screened-in porch.

It’s easy to see why it’s called Sculptured Daisy; the pattern is raised and has a sculpted feel to it.

Stemware is from the Dollar Tree.  Anytime I’m near a Dollar Tree, I have to stop in to see what glassware they have in.  You just can’t beat $1 a stem.

I had this table all set and realized it needed a little something.  A moss table runner instantly popped into my head.  I thought I’d try to make one but once I arrived at Michaels, I discovered they had some ready-made.  I compared pricing and it was definitely more cost effective to buy the ready made runner than to try and make one.  I’ve forgotten the exact amount but with a 40% off coupon, the runner was only around $6.

It was a bit too long so I shortened it, cutting a little off at the time on one end.  To give the remaining runner a fuller look, I pulled off as much moss as I could from the sections I had cut off and pressed it onto the runner. The moss runners from Michael’s are generally pretty flat so adding the extra moss gave the runner more of the look I was hoping for.

I have several and have used them before in past tablescape centepieces and door baskets over the years.  I think Pier 1 has them in again this year.

They come on tall stems and I cut one down to use it in the centerpiece.  The center planter is really the sauce/gravy bowl for the Metlox Sculptured Daisy dishware.  It made a great planter for the daffodils from Trader Joe’s.  Last Tablescape Thursday I used a few of the larger mercury-glass eggs from Pottery Barn.  This week I’m using the smaller mercury-glass eggs, but just the green and silver this time.   I’m totally hooked on mercury glass.

Green stemware is a dollar store find.

The lighting is so nice for taking photographs on the porch this time of year.

This is the second moss table setting I’ve created for Tablescape Thursday.  The last one was wild and wooly and covered the whole table!  You can view that moss table setting HERE.

    Just beautiful, Susan. What an amazing spring look – fresh and lovely! I love green and yellow and white together, so gorgeous!

  2. Jewel Sauls says:

    Love your moss runner! So nice to see daffodils – they bloomed so early they are all gone in the yard! I love the daisy china also!!

  3. Debbie Booth says:

    SUSAN HOW ADORABLE! I love this. Those dishes with the sweet flowers on them are so wonderful. You have the prettiest table settings. I never tire of this party. I get so many wonderful ideas. Your table is ready for spring and perfect for your guests. Hope your week is wonderful and blessed and I hope you are feeling better since the St. Patricks post! Blessings, Debbie

  4. ourlifeinaclick says:

    It all looks stunning! I love those daisy dishes and the bunnies and that moss runner! Wow!! Who wouldn’t love to sit down and enjoy a Spring time meal at that table? Gorgeous!!

  5. Susan, your table is as fresh as a spring morning. Each time I see these daisy dishes it takes me back. My best friend selected these for her bridal registry. All your bunny details, the eyelet napkins, and the soft greens make this table. Beautiful job! ~ Sarah PS Looks like the linky didn’t take my thumbnail photo. Can I go back in and try again?

  6. Yellow Rose Arbor says:

    Beautiful! I love the daisy dishes! The moss runner is neat too! Thanks for hosting, I’m joining in this time. Katherine

  7. Linda (More Fun Less Laundry) says:

    Wow Susan, your tables just get better every time! These are such cute dishes. I also like the lemon tree centerpiece on the older post, but I couldn’t find a link to the video in it. I know I saw it long ago–I think it was just when I started my blog. Thanks for hosting. Linda

  8. I love this table, and I love those dishes. In fact, I have been eyeing them for months and months in our local antique mall just hoping that either the price for the set will go down or they will let me buy just pieces. I really love it. You’re right about spring being beautiful here in GA this year. I am trying to enjoy every minute.

  9. I really love the table runner..I have filed it away in my brain for next year….probably putting it on Pinterest will help too… thanks for hosting this party.. Mona

  10. I remember those dishes, , so pretty! I love the eyelet with the napkins too. $ Tree here hasn’t had colored wines for a while, I hope they get something other than the blue. That moss looks much easier than the year we did ours with the spagnum, what a mess! Beautiful table, Susan, thanks for hosting!

  11. All those lovely touches of spring green on your table are perfect for this time of year, Susan. And I love your lattice-work chargers. They’re really beautiful. Isn’t it fun to watch the landscape change each day in your photos? I walk around my garden each morning and every day there’s something new. This time of year really is special.

  12. AshTreeCottage says:

    Such a pretty Easter table. Everything is so fresh and pretty like a beautiful spring day. Thanks for hosting. Hugs, Susan and Bentley

  13. Tombstone Livestock says:

    Once again great job, love the bunny planters.

  14. Chubby Chieque says:

    Cool thing having the moss runner. I did it once when a friend of mine asked me to do her principal table on her 50th bday. It was fun playing with the nature. TY again for sharing your lovely treasures. Greetings from Stockholm, /CC

  15. Very pretty and fresh table! I coulnd’t pass up the green stems at the DT either. Thank you for hosting!

  16. sweet violets says:

    Very soft and springy!!! Love the setting and the glasses….you gals always find nice things at those stores, around here they have nothing!!! Gonna have to move!!! hugs…cleo

  17. Laura Ingalls Gunn says:

    Oh those eyelet napkins are completely wonderful! Thank you so much for hosting!

  18. Everything is so beautiful!!! Your dishes are gorgeous…. I love that moss table runner too! ~Des

  19. Such a pretty and cheerful garden tablescape, Susan. I love yor moss runner and the dishes are beautiful! Love the daffodils and bunies too…..Christine

  20. Entertaining Women says:

    I love your Daffodils with the Daisy dinnerware…a perfect mix for your Spring table. The chargers are magnificent! I keep searching for just the right white ones….some day. Thanks for inviting us for a peak and for hosting Tablescape Thursday each week. Cherry Kay

  21. Hi Susan, this is such a cute and natural spring table. I love just every detail. The wickerwork dishes are perfect with your chairs and the daisy dishes. And the table runner is great. Very well done and a nice inspiration. Best greetings, Johanna

  22. Tanya@takesix says:

    Susan, can you think of a reason that I am unable to link up to your party? I tried to link up to MM as well and couldn’t. Obviously many people have been successful. It says I don’t have a back link to your blog in my post, but I do and it works, because I have tried it. I’m at a loss. :(

  23. Scribbler says:

    These dishes are still perfect for your porch! I have been filling in my old set from that company (different pattern) for a while now on eBay and other sources.

  24. LOVE the moss runner Susan! And with the lack of GREEN grass around here in AZ, I need to get one of these runners! Thanks for the tip and thanks for hosting another FAB TT party! Have a Happy Easter! xo Lynda

  25. Liz@A Dish Here, A Glass There says:

    What darling planters you found at TM… those daisy dinnerwre pieces are really lovely! The chargers give them even more presence and the moss runner added the perfect touch! I love your shot with the wine glass in front of the bunnie’s face…it almost looks like the daffodils are planted in the glass! Your application of the fuzzy bunny is perfect! Love your mercury glass eggs…I have not seen any around myself. When my sister got married in the 60’s she got dishes that had a big daisy right in the middle…Up-sa Daisy by Noritake. I guess with the whole “flower power” era back then daisies were probably very popular!

  26. martinealison says:

    Une grande fraîcheur dans la confection de votre table. un véritable plaisir que d’être inviter chez vous je suppose… Gros bisous à vous

  27. Hi Susan, I love your bunny planters and the green moss is sooo… cute. I bought three bunnies just like yours for my Spring Mantelscape Party. My TM didn’t have the bunny planters that I remember but I will be on the lookout for them now. Of course things fly out of the store so fast I might have missed them. I have used my Vintage Bird Cage I purchased with my $50 gift certificate I won on your giveaway for this week’s Tablescape. It’s so much fun to have such a cute vintage bird cage. Thanks so much for your fun parties. Well I must scoot now, the Goodwill just opened today next to Tuesday Morning and I’ve got to go check it out. xo Betty

  28. What a beautiful table I love the planters and the dinnerware. The table is so light and fresh.

  29. :)

    Hi lovely lady. Your Tablescape is Beautiful for Easter and Spring. I also love your Gorgeous daisy dishes! Susan,the moss runner for your centerpiece was a great Idea with the bunnies sweet.!Thanks so much for hosting your BNOTP linky party for us all. XXOO Diane

  31. A Cottage in the Clouds says:

    What a lovely vintage-look tablescape! The eyelet napkins and chargers are perfect for the daisy dinnerware. Love the bunny planters, too.

  32. sharonavinger says:

    Hello, Susan, Oh, my, Sculptured Daisy was my selected bridal pattern for our everyday dishes in 1972 when I married my hubby. I don’t use them nearly as much now but you’ve encouraged me to take them out and use them more often! I still love them and have Fostoria glasses in Jamestown green to use with them. Thanks for the memories! Hubby and I celebrate our 40th anniversary in June. Sharon

  33. Linda Leyble says:

    I loved your tablescape with the wisterias. I have wisteria in the side of my home – not out yet here in NY…but I am anxiously awaiting its arrival. I put them in vases – and yes – they droop…but they are so pretty – I have to have them on my table every year. Loved how your bunnies were holding the mercury glass ornaments. I have to buy some of those – they are lovely. I am going to try to participate in one of your tablescape parties soon! Bye for now… Linda

  34. Oh, my goodness! Love, love, love it! The soft colors and the setting on your porch – I can just imagine a serene ladies’ spring luncheon out there. Wish I knew you personally! :) I shared this on my blog today: http://www.sister-dipity.blogspot.com/2012/03/easter-ideas.html

  35. OOOOOOOO, I remember those pretty green & yellow plates!! They remind me of my very first kitchen!!! I loved that kitchen!! The moss bunny is darling & I love the new, soft green colors of the $ store stems. Very muted & nice. Thanks for hosting TT again this week. I hope you’re not getting tired of doing them, because I love this party!! Hugs, Rett

  36. Susan, Another incredible tablescape! I guess my “bucket list” would include just once sitting at your table. I love the china, the bunnies, the grass and the $1.00 goblets. Gretchen

  37. French and Sparrow says:

    Thanks for hosting such a lovely party! It’s my first time participating and there are so many beautiful posts… x Kerry

  38. Those daisy dishes are the best! I, also, love the darling bunny planters. Once, again, you have done a fabulous job of tablescaping! Your photography is so professional. I always read your posts on how to photograph better, but I still have much to learn – thank you for trying to help us, though!!

  39. We are having a cool rainy Spring here in this part of Canada, I would love to transport myself for a day and enjoy your beautiful Spring table for lunch. Just love the daisy dishes and the fuzzy bunny. Thank you Susan.

  40. I wondererd lonely as a could that floats on high or vale and hill, when all at once I saw a crowd a host of golden daffodil! Lori

  41. I’ve always loved that Daisy pattern. I have bits and pieces but not enough to make a whole set yet. I sure wish our Dollar Tree was like yours. There’s never any pretty glassware in ours. I suppose they’re different everywhere. Ours is all plastique, lol.

  42. Oh, that china is so pretty!

  43. Alycia Nichols says:

    his is TOTALLY my style! I really, really, really like it a lot!!!!!!!!!! THe green mixed with the yellow against the white….perfection!

  44. iSavortheWeekend says:

    Absolutely love, love, love the green and white combination. So what time should we show up at your porch for Easter meal? ;)

  45. hey Susan! I adore that table, on THAT porch , as ever. The use of dark moss table runner really pulls in your silverware and bunny. Together it compliments the those adorable daisy ishes! How cute are the bunny planters! Thanks for hosting! huggs, Dianna

  46. Donna@Conghaile Cottage says:

    Every detail is PURE PERFECTION! Love the green and white. I especially LOVE using those new MOSS mats. I have placemats that “I JUST LOVE”! Your dishes with the daisies are stunning! I loved the raised flowers, that is ALWAYS a bonus(I think)… Have a wonderful weekend, Big Hugs, Donna

  47. Your dishes are so pretty and I love the napkins too. What a beautiful setting! I bought some glasses at the Dollar Store a couple of months ago. The pattern is very close to an antique glass bowl I inherited from my mother/great-grandmother. You never know what is at the Dollar Store!

  48. Darlene G says:

    What a beautiful setting. It is just gorgeous. I absolutely love, love, love those dishes. I will be on the lookout for them. Soooo gorgeous!!!

  49. My husband and I registered the Scultpured Daisy pattern when we got married in 1969 and we are still enjoying using them. Thanks for sharing your lovely tablescape using this set. dgmills@tampabay.rr.com

  50. Designs by Pinky says:

    I don’t have a table this week but my table is set for our dinner group tonight so I will share that next week! Your table looks BEAUTIFUL! I love those bunny planters. I bought some moss garland to make a runner and haven’t had a chance to do that. We are SOOOOOOOO busy right now making decisions for the new house!!!!! Thanks for hosting and creating all these wonderful scapes. You are the best. XO, Pinky

  51. Designs by Pinky says:

    PS, I have looked every time I am in the $ store too for those green wine glasses with NO luck so far:(:(

  52. Tanya@takesix says:

    Woohoo! Finally success. Susan, I truly appreciate all your help, and the prompt feedback from Inlinkz. Thank you so much. Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  53. Anonymous says:

    Those green stemmed wineglasses? I just KNEW they were going to be credited to Neiman Marcus…but NO! Our darling Susan locates the unique among the “junque” no matter where she happens to shop. And speaking of color, your bottle tree looks like it’s coming along nicely, too. Any recent posts about it I may have missed? It’s such a quirky, fun, year-round work of art. Dazzling in the Southern sunshine, Dahlin,! Xoxo *From Terrie M. in Atlanta

  54. Sandi Lee says:

    The bunny planters are just wonderful and the green moss table topper just makes it say “Spring is on the way”. Love it.

  55. maria garcia says:

    I am sorry I don’t know many english
    me encanta la decoracion de las mesas que preparas y ademas lo bien que coordinas las cositas compradas en sitios rebajados y de segunda mano. No hay que gastar mucho para tener una casa tan bella, La felicito tiene muchisimo gusto para todo, Mary desde Vero Beach Florida

  56. Susan, every single part of this tablescape is outstanding! You are SO talented! Just love the “springiness” of this beautiful table! It’s so great to have the white furniture on the porch – you can dress it up in any color!

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