Rustic Easter Tablescape: Humbled by the old, rugged cross

It was a table for 10. Shoulder to shoulder in our dining room, we ate and laughed and shared our hearts. Men and women, all fairly new friends of ours, but we hold one important thing in common:

 

We celebrate Easter.

 

Easter 2016 - 1

 

Mikasa Italian Countryside dinner plates, Tiffin King’s Crown glassware, and vintage damask napkins brought a simple elegance to balance the “rustic” feel of seagrass placemats and bird’s nests.

Flatware is also “Italian Countryside” by Mikasa.

Easter 2016 - 2

 

Three rock-filled vases of yellow tulips and carnations paired with blossom-filled pear branches to continue the rustic elegance vibe. At the base of each stood a cross.

 

Easter is nothing without the cross.

 

Easter 2016 - 4

 

If Easter is all about the cross in your life, I wish you a blessed and happy celebration of our risen Lord.

 

For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

1 Corinthians 1:18

 

May the way of the cross not be wasted by us…
