Easter Table At Kathysue’s

I know you remember this from Antrhopologie…………..
Who can forget my coloring of the egg shells……..
My Easter 2010 002 (800x600)
I did all of that to get this………….

Easter table 2010 002
I used Irish moss, white star Isotoma ground cover and wheat grass to fill all of the yellow eggshells. The center urn has fresh yellow daffodils and white daisies with lime centers. The two side urns have Irish moss in them. I kept the side urns simple in order to have a place for the eye to rest. I originally had planned to have all three urns with flowers but realized that would just have been too busy looking. I also scattered a few daisy heads on the mirror.  I still have to put down the silver ware, white linen napkins and bring in the extra chairs and then it is done!!!
One last picture of my Entry table and a bouquet of pink roses and Alstomeria …………

I have the bible opened to the story of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. I always want to represent the true meaning of this wonderful family holiday that we call Easter.  I hope you have enjoyed the little tour into a part of my world.

SO fresh and pretty Kathysue! The yellow and green are just wonderful. The use of eggshell flowerpots seems rampant in Blogland this year, but you and are the only ones I've seen who were nutty enough to dye them! I don't know about you, but I made a mental note to remember to buy JUMBO eggs next time!!
I LOVE the idea of the open Bible- just a perfect reminder and I am going to make note of that for our family. have a joyous, blessed Easter

Wow- it is all stunning! Your eggs are so precious. I wanted to do that with votives inside but of course time got the best of me.
Where do you find that Irish moss? I love it.
Happy, happy to you.

Kathysue, you've done it again! Every time I think you can't outdo yourself, you go ahead and manage it. This is just gorgeous. I love the way the mirrored runner reflects your beautiful arrangements. And the egg shells came out perfectly, what a perfect idea for Easter. Hope you and your family have a beautiful, blessed Easter. Hugs, Kat (BTW, did you get the dye off of your fingers yet?)
