Easter Island Style

Welcome to another edition of Tablescape Thursday
with our hostess Susan from Between Naps On The Porch

And I'm also joining the Rednesday party over at
It's A Very Cherry World for an unusual Easter tablescape.
This is NOT the usual pastels!


Not Easter Island .....

A table fit for Easter "island style."  Think sandy beach, warm
ocean breezes, swaying palms and an icy cocktail.


Acrylic green chargers, Rosenthal "Medallion" dinner plate, decorative salad plates
from Pier 1.  The divided fruit tray in the basket holder is from Target a couple of
years ago. It closely mimics some of the Post 86 Fiesta colors and the shape of the
vintage Fiesta divided relish tray, but is an imported look-a-like. Flatware and
napkins are from Home Goods, glassware and salt and pepper from Pier 1.







Fuzzy bunnies are from Pier 1.  Just toooo cute!






Tropical bird ceramic napkin rings came from eBay.






The colorful ceramic condiment tray also mimics some of the Fiesta colors, but
again is an import and not Fiesta.






These vintage nesting bowls are again not Fiesta.
Possibly Hall "Radiant" ware or Gaco look-alikes.




Wooden salad serving set is from South Africa.






Hand carved wooden pitcher and matching cups are from Jamaica,
the woven tray is from South Africa.




Striped candles were 2 for $1 from The Dollar Tree Store.

  10. So colorful & tropical! Your divided tray reminds me of the vintage Fiesta one my mother had. She sold it in a garage sale about 7 yrs ago. I about lost my religion when she said she got $25 for it. UGH! Someone got a deal.

  15. Your table is tropical and festive(ware)! Did you put that arrangement together? It is so beautiful. I giggled outloud when I saw those darling tropical bird salt and pepper shakers! So cute. Your dinner plates make such a bold island statement. I bet you use them all summer. They are beautiful and fun!
    The carved wooden pitcher from Jamica is the stand-out. along with the serving pieces from South Africa. It's authentic tribal feel gives this table a true island look. Such a great table!

  21. Really a beautiful table. Love the plates and flower arrangement!

  22. Oh my.....I think you all liked this one!!

    I was getting a little tired of all the pastels and on a whim put this together! I love it because you can make this anything you want it to be! Easter, Christmas, tropical dinner, beat the winter blues party.....I think it would pick up our spirits anytime!

    Yvonne - this is the best kind of arrangement. :-) The silk stems are sitting in my "Sun Tea" jar. I stuck in about 12 stems, added the bunnies and that's the entire story! They did it all themselves by just being pretty. LOL

  28. Those salad plates are just gorgeous! And that fruit tray really does look like the old Fiesta ones. I know those cost a small fortune! I sure hope Pier 1 still has some of those fuzzy bunnies, because I'm lookin' for some tomorrow!
