Easter Buffet

Easter will be here soon!  
I have been thinking of what 
we will be doing on that Sunday.  
Sometimes we go to Brunch.  
I like Brunch 
but when we go out it can be noisy 
and crowded and I don't feel like 
I get to visit with the family.  
I don't think that I have ever cooked 
an Easter Dinner in my life!  
We always seem to do something midday.  
So, this year I think we will take it easy 
and have a relaxed Brunch at home.  
I have been collecting Blue and White 
things lately when I am out at Estate Sales.  
I found these cute Buffalo Check napkins for a steal.  
I've been wanting to use these Fleur dis Lis 
napkins that came as a set with a small table square.  
And can you believe 
that I had these small juice cups 
with a Fleur dis Lis?  
I guess I know what I like!  
Funny, how you are drawn 
to the same things over and over.  
I painted these eggs this past weekend.  
I found a set of multicolored eggs 
that I bought, 
but of course,
I only wanted to use the blue eggs... 
I painted white plastic eggs 
with a combination of ASCP 
in duck egg blue and some leftover paint 
that I had in a robin's egg blue.  
Then I speckled them with brown paint.  
Which one of these eggs in the bowl 
is from Michael's 
and which one did I paint? 
Mr. Beaux took these pictures 
of the "Speckling" process.  
He secretly wants to be a Blogger!  
So did you guess yet?  
Mine is the one on the left!  
This is my new copper find!  
I found it at an Estate Sale for $10.00.  
Do you think I paid too much?  
I didn't want to wait for half off day...
Look at how it shined up!  
Flowers would look in it pretty too.  
Here is another antique copper piece.  
A friend gave this to me 
when we first moved to Kansas.  
See the cool measuring markings?  
I think I'm ready... 
Plates, bowls, napkins, flatware,

A little moo cow is of course needed, 
along with a few white pitchers.  
 Brunch is served!  
Now to plan the menu...
Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves

Hi Cindy! Your brunch table is so pretty! Love those little eggs and you did a beautiful job on them too. The napkins, tablecloth, little glasses and of course that little cow creamer are just shouting 'Springtime!'
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Kathleen said...

Beautiful! I love the colors, the checks are such fun! A beautiful Brunch table!
Thanks for taking the challenge !

Tea in Texas said...

Fabulous white stacks of china. I love all your estate sale finds especially the aqua and white check napkins. I love estate sales for each one is a always fun way to shop. A lovely way to dine is from your buffet!
Have a wonderful week!

So I'm enjoying this new trend of stacking your table. The colors here are really sweet...

Liz@ Infuse With Liz said...

Oh I love these colors! Those napkins and the glasses with the fleur de lis are my favorite. I am always caught up when I see that symbol too. Your table looks lovely and the eggs do too!

Martha said...

Love the blues! And that Easter egg is so clever!

Love the soft aqua and white combo of this table. It's gorgeous! I'd love to brunch with you anytime. '-)

sweet violets said...

Very soft and pretty, love the aqua with the copper, perfect table for Spring!!!

tablescapesbybev.com said...

Your table is lovely...love those napkins and this wonderful color scheme!

Cynthia said...

Cindy, love your table!!! Soft aqua must be the "in" color this spring, seen it all over Homegoods, these past weeks. I also noticed the "fleur de lis" on your plates too. Oh I so would love to go shopping with you someday....you find the greatest things!

Jeanette said...

Cindy, I love everything on the table. I am partial to anything with a fleur de lis myself. I think your estate finds were a great price. Got to buy the pieces when you see them, Your eggs looks so much more natural than the store bought ones..great job!

Missy George said...

Lovely Cindy..Great color..Very springy..Matches my living room..

KC said...

Awesome post! The colors are such a pick me up. Thank you.
Love your blog!

Kim Hood said...

Your blue and white is beautiful! I love how you speckled the eggs - a perfect touch! I hope you all enjoy your Easter brunch. :-)
Blessings,

Alycia Nichols said...

Your egg looks WAY more authentic than the Michael's one. Great job! And kudos to you for having the patience to actually sit there and create those eggs!!!

I don't think you paid too much for the copper piece. Hey...if you don't want to risk it being gone, sometimes you just have to pay a little premium. I think of it as tipping to get a better table! :-)

Your husband AND mine secretly (but not SO secretly!) want to tablescape! They get into it, don't they? I think it's great when me take an interest in these things. I just don't like it when Ramon tries to override my decisions. I have actually come downstairs to find these rearranged to suit HIS vision! He's trippin'! :-)

The buffalo check napkins in that color are really pretty!

Stay safe and don't let this wind blow you across the prairie!!! Have a good weekend!

Ann Krucek said...

Ooohhh!! So pretty! Love the checked napkins and the little touch of the polka dot ribbon around your flatware. You did a great job speckling your eggs!! Beautiful Table!

Madonna/aka/Ms Lemon of Make Mine Lemon said...

My favorite color - just beautiful. I see that others agree.

Entertaining Women said...

Almost ethereal...just beautiful, and I adore the aqua. Thanks for inviting us for a peek. Cherry Kay

The Tablescaper said...

Such a glorious shade of blue! And no, you didn't pay too much. The problem with waiting for the sale is that is could be gone!

I do hope you'll share this at Seasonal Sundays.

Kathi Riemer said...

Lovely. I love the aqua!

Candy S said...

You had me at aqua and white. Your table is just beautiful, the aqua tablecloth, the checked napkins, the beautiful aqua plates with the Fleur-de-lis complete a picture of Spring beauty. I love it!

Pat Cantwell said...

Cindy,
Exquisite!!!
This color palette calls to me more and more over time with its soothing qualities!
LOVE your Estate $ale finds!!!
Luckily, I did guess correctly on the eggs! Trust me, that never happens!
Gorgeous buffet, now what time, dear one???
Fondly,
Pat

Looking at this tablescape just makes me happy - I love the color and all of the various items you used to make it all come together!!! I especially love the pale aqua flatware - could you please tell where it is from?

Deborah@Green Willow Pond said...

This is so pretty! I love the color, fleur de lis, dishes, copper...in short I love all of it! I don't think I've ever done Easter dinner either. My parents are in Florida that time of year, so we always have Easter dinner at my mother-in-law's. We have Easter breakfast at church before service. But who says I can't have Easter brunch on Saturday? I'd love to set a table as pretty as yours!
Blessings, Deborah

The Charm of Home said...

Rhonda Vaudt said...

How beautiful! I might have to paint some eggs next year:) the colors are so soft & Springy!
