I showed you all last weekend my Easter craft (Spring Easter Basket Bulb Garden) where I took an old basket from the thrift store, applied a whitewash and added soil and bulbs. The bulbs have bloomed and it looks fabulous! I hung my vintage Easter eggs onto my chandelier (Easter Egg Chandelier) and voila! My dining room is now decorated and ready for Easter lunch!
Aside from my husband, my china is the best thing I received from my wedding and I still love it (and him as well)! The pattern is Grenville by Royal Crown Derby. Our first trip together was to Greenville, NC and so, although slightly different, the name of the pattern also appealed to me. After 20 years, it remains my favorite.
The following are a bunch of pics of the room. I hope that I didn’t overdo it but the colors were so pretty and I just kept shooting. Oh, and the tablecloth is from the thrift store and is an April Cornell. My mother knows everything there is to possibly know about linens and she introduced me to this fantastic designer. Love the blue!
I love the way you decorate. Never overdone…looks lovely, yet like real people live there. You inspire me!
Thank you so much! I take that as such a real compliment! Happy spring!

Just lovely, Suzanne. I can see why you still love your china pattern. Easter blessings to you!
To you as well, Cynthia! Thank you!
Everything looks perfect for spring and Easter. I love your china and I was not familiar with that pattern. Also, great to learn about the designer of the linens. Thanks for sharing all your knowledge and that of your mom. I really like the crystal that looks like lace and would love to know the brand. I fell in love with a similar pattern when I was watching Cash and Kari but do not remember the name.
Hi Debbie! Thanks so much – my mother will appreciate your comment! The crystal was also from my wedding and honestly, I have no idea what it was called (bad, I know!) It also has survived the test of time lol and I still like it! I don’t often use it, or my good china, as I have to hand wash it all and I’m a tad lazy 🙂
