Our son is grown and married; and his family lives out of state. I used to decorate for Easter, but over the years, I've gotten rid of all the bunnies, chicks, and Easter decorations.
Although we will enjoy Easter with my aunt and cousins, I'm wishing our grandson (and of course our son and DIL) could be here for Easter.
Grandson is almost 3 years old now and expecting a little brother in June.
Debbie @Confessions of a Plate Addict was my inspiration with her recent post, A French Child's Table Revisited. Thanks, Debbie.
I have several Hummel figures that belonged to my mom and MIL; and although I never display them, I think they are so sweet.
So I'm pretending that our grandson will be here for breakfast...
...and I'll set a special little table for him by the French doors in the family room.
For a table, I covered a bench with a cloth and used the little rocking chair that has been our family for four generations. The cushion is made from an old torn quilt that was my Granny's.
The little plate with carrots and cabbages remind me of The Tale of Peter Rabbit. The German spoon and pusher were a baby gift for our son when he was born.
The pusher has a rabbit and hedgehog on the handle...
...and the spoon, a fox and goose.
I used my husband's baby cup, although Grandson will probably think he's too big for that. lol
Don't you just love the sweet faces on the Hummel "friends"?
Oh, I just realized. I do have bunnies.
And of course, lambs.
The little boy almost looks like he's kissing the lamb, and look how the other one is looking up at them.
An old creamer holds flowers from the garden. Woodland phlox, deutzia, and wild strawberry. The wild strawberry even has a bloom.
I know the wild strawberry is a weed, but it's so pretty, I like to use it in arrangements.
Wishing you all an blessed Easter with family and friends.
Thanks for stopping by. I always love seeing you and appreciate your sweet comments.
I'll be joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.
See you there.
