  1. Beautiful decorations! Very lovely for Easter and spring!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Jeanne! We wait a long time for spring in MN! Surely something to celebrate!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Christy! It is nice to have the table right next to the bay window;)

    You may not have sunshine but i love the view, and your table and surrounding bunnies and dishes are so pretty. Easter is a time of joy and i am filled with joy when looking at your room, thanks and Happy Easter.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m so glad it all fills you with joy, Marlene! Creative, pretty just has a way of doing that to our souls, doesn’t it?

  3. Lora, Your dishes are really pretty and I love how you decorated your Easter table. Wishing you a Blessed Easter!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Carol! You, too!

  4. Oh my so much creativity and vintage goodess! I don’t have any of those plates but I always have loved them. I am in love with that tablecloth, and your pinking sheer napkins are brilliant. I am definitely borrowing that idea! The little glass baskets are divine and I am crazy over the Easter eggs platters. Genius! You always have so many colorful and fun items, spring is a great time to tour your home!

    Thank you so much for hopping with us. Happy Easter!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Amber. And yes…my family agrees I have a lot of stuff;)

  5. Lora, I love your gorgeous Easter tablescape! Your botanical dishes are lovely, and your repurposed wooden lath runner makes a great base for your pretty centerpiece decor! (BTW, I featured it in this week’s Farmhouse Friday!) Happy Easter!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Michelle! And thanks for the feature, too! Now I need to make about 10 more for grad party tables…

  6. Lora, your dinner plates are gorgeous and the easter centerpiece is a show~stopper. All the greenery is perfect for an Easter meal. Happy Easter.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I am loving those dishes, Carol! Here’s hoping I find a few more spring saleing!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Angelina!

  7. Lora, what a charming table full of great ideas and suggestions too! I loved your idea for no sew napkins! Often I can’t find a pattern I like or 8 are too expensive to purchase. A yard or two of fabric and voila! I also have Mr. Big Bunny and his wife too. Can’t believe I never thought to add any embellishments to their baskets — duh! I’m going to go an add eggs and carrots pronto after seeing yours.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I didn’t know Mr. Bunny had a wife, Debbee;) I got him for cheap at a garage sale and he quickly become my favorite. I love adding different things in his backpack. Last year it was carrots and veggies.

  8. Lora, your tablescape is so lovely and Springy with so many fun ideas. Love the centerpiece with the vintage Garden Theme. Have a wonderful Easter!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Debra. We wait long and hard for garden season here…and we’re not there yet. I’m trying to make it come sooner, I guess;)

  9. What a gorgeous Easter table and those dishes are perfect. I am a dish-aholic as well so I have to restrain myself when I go shopping or I wouldn’t have anywhere to store them all! Great tip on the tablecloth…because I hate ironing as well! So much inspiration on your table…you really have some beautiful pieces!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I have dishes…everywhere, Shelley! My hubs says I could feed the 5000;) My youngest said the other day, “I’m guessing not everybody changes out their dishes every season like we do?” Oh, what have I done to my children…

  10. Such a fun table! I love all the colors and the name tags! Those dishes are gorgeous! I love dishes too! Thanks for all the inspo!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I think there’s quite a few dish lovers on these blog hops, Kristin! Maybe we should start a support group: dishaholics anonymous?

  11. Hi Lora, I love all your botanical accents but I must say decorating the platters to look like eggs is a fabulous idea. The trims and lace are so pretty!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Michelle! It was a fun, easy craft project that anyone could do, and a great way to enjoy all my oval platters!

  12. So many lovely elements to your table and your home. Your Portmeiron Botanic Garden plates set a lovely table and your rustic centerpiece with all of the garden elements complements the dishes perfectly. Your collection of little glass baskets is quite a treasure! /they look lovely glistening in the sunlight!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Chloe! Yes, I treasure those little glass baskets:)

  13. You’re just killin’ me with your amazing ideas! the glass basket collection is incredible and the oval plates decorated as eggs are so creative. Now I need to be on the look out for those items.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Did you see the movie, Sandlot, Pamela? We always say, “You’re killin’ me, Smalls” I’m so glad you got some new ideas, and I’m happy when I can inspire someone to go out and treasure hunt! I can say I had a successful day, now;)

  14. What a lovely table you’ve set, Lora! I poured over each picture taking in all of the details. I’m also a dish-a-holic and I think I let out a sigh when I saw your pretty Portmerion plates. The plates look great with your leaf placemats and the pretty napkins that you made. I like how you used a wreath as the napkin ring and tucked the fork in with the napkin. I so much enjoyed every picture that you shared. Everything is beautiful!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Such sweet compliments, Paula; thankyou! I’m hoping to find more of those Portmerion plates this spring; I’ve only got 7; 4 dinners and 3 salads. I’d love a whole set, plus some of those yummy extra pieces. I can never get enough dishes!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Carol!

  15. Such a beautiful tablescape!! And, seriously loving the plates that you put ribbon and ric rac on…genius!!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Emily! It was so fun to gussy up those oval platters; kind of like grade school art again:) Very therapeutic.

  16. I like your tablescape because you don’t do things like everyone else! I particularly loved the bedspread for a tablecloth, and the pinking shears napkins!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      That’s the best compliment, Kristie! Yes, out-of-the-box and expected are not my game, I love unique! So glad you got some new ideas to try!

  17. I love your table and all of your Easter decor Lora! I feel like such a slacker now!!

    Tania

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yea, right, Tania;) Decorating is a disease for me. Can’t stop it.Thanks, friend!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Linda! Can’t wait to see your version when you make one;)

  18. Lora, I love your table area. The table’s centerpiece is so cute. Love the fencing underneath. Everything in your home is pretty!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Well, I don’t know about “everything”, Terrie…at least the parts I share on the blog are;) Thanks!

  19. Lora, I love your touches of Easter. You are a genius to add ribbon and rickrack etc. around your plates! I will have to borrow that idea. Everything looks so festive and fun. Happy Easter!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      The decorated plates was a fun afternoon of playing with vintage trims, Cindy! Glad you liked them:)

  20. I love this. I love the green door too. What a fun color. Your glass baskets are precious.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      That green door is about the only remnant of this old house’s former 70’s attire, Katie! I’ve left it for the 17 years we’ve lived here; have always loved mossy greens;) thanks!

  21. I love botanicals any time of the year, Lora, but especially for Spring and Easter. You have so many fun collections and I love all your bunnies. It looks like a gorgeous garden party right on your table – everything is just lovely! Hugs, CoCo

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, botanical style is classic, CoCo; wonderful anytime! Thanks!

  22. Everything is so beautifully displayed and I especially love your garden table centerpiece. Stunning

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      It’s so fun to decorate with a garden theme this time of year, Marty! We wait so long for it here in MN!

  23. What a darling table, Lora and I love your pretty glass basket collection! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Those glass baskets were a treasured gift to my mom from a dear friend, Cecilia. I love bringing them out and enjoying them each Easter!

      1. How special! Thanks for sharing your lovely table at Vintage Charm–pinning!
