Easter Tablescape

This was our Easter dinner tablescape.

I know there is glare and shadow, but I'm not the world's greatest photographer.
My youngest brother made it home from college so we set a table for four.
(So much prettier than a table for three.)

The china was from a great aunt and was passed on to me in high school. It is Royal Bayreuth from Germany. Though I appreciated it greatly, this was the first time that I ever unpacked and used it. I just love the silver trim!
The tablecloth was a wedding gift of my momma's, as was the silver center piece. I think the purple flowers accented the silver beautifully.

These goblets are a Goodwill find. I found six of them for only $2 at a 50% off sale. Aren't they pretty!

The flatware was given to me by my grandmother when she broke up housekeeping. We had to spend some time polishing it because again, I had never used it. The pattern is Processional.
My momma rescued these napkins from a Salvation Army store. She immediately noticed the detailed corners. She bought a dozen for only a few dollars.

We shared a delicious meal together after morning church. Hope you enjoyed a wonderful holiday with your loved ones.
We will be linking up with Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch. Thanks for visiting!
