Easter On A Tray Blog Hop

 Easter On A Tray And Other Decor

Hello friends!  Easter is only a few days away and I'm happy to be joining in with another blog hop hosted by Katherine of katherinescorner.com! Today's blog hop features "Easter On A Tray." If you are hopping over from The Painted Apron, I want to welcome you. Be sure to visit all of the wonderful bloggers participating in the blog hop today so you don't miss out on any of the lovely trays they will be featuring. The links follow at the end of this post. 

I decided to create an Easter Tea Tray for this blog hop. The tea cups and saucers are covered in butterflies. Butterflies are a symbol of resurrection and rebirth and that certainly fits with celebrating Christ's resurrection at Easter. I love butterflies and always look forward to seeing them in my garden. By the way, the tea cup set was actually purchased from our hostess's lovely shop several years ago. Thanks again, Katherine, I just love these cups! The white tea pot was gifted to me by one of my sisters and is a lovely keepsake that represents family. 

The ceramic bunny and colorful wooden Easter egg add a note of whimsy to the tray while the faux flowers add some Spring color and extra height to the tray. 

My Easter Tea Tray vignette is living on our dining room table. And guess what? The dining room also houses a lot of other Easter decorations that I want to share with you, including another Easter tray arrangement. 

In the corner of our dining room we have a tall and skinny table that is wonderful for smaller vignettes. Here, I have my tiered skinny tray that I purchased from Target. I added lots of little Easter objects to both tiers. The two little Easter baskets on the bottom tier were created around 30 years ago by my mother and one of my sisters and they are precious keepsakes to me. It doesn't seem like Easter until these little baskets are on display! The two jar lid ornaments were crafted by me using scrapbook paper and butterfly stickers and I think they are so cute! I have had the little ceramic ornament for years and the little wooden bunnies are recent purchases from Hobby Lobby. I really enjoy this whimsical two tiered Easter tray!

The bottom tier of the tall table shows my colorful collection of Easter eggs displayed in a wire net candle holder. Behind it is my wooden "Spring Thyme" sign. In front of the table is a Longaberger basket filled with wooden bunnies that were made for me early in my teaching career by one of my assistants and I just love them! My metal farmhouse bucket is holding my tobacco basket with a Happy Easter sign from Dollar Tree attached to it. I thought the silk white scarf added a nice touch to this vignette. 

This is the view looking into the dining room. 

And, finally, this is a close-up view of my little Easter egg tree on top of the knick-knack shelf in the corner of the dining room. The whole dining room takes on a warm glow when the tree is lit at night!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my Easter Tea Tray as well as the other Easter decor in the dining room. Be sure to hop on over to Common Ground and enjoy more Easter tray goodness!

Blessings to you at this most Holy time of the year!

Until Next Time,

Christ Jesus who died - more than that, who was raised to life - is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.
Romans 8:34

Your tray is so pretty, and I love all of your Easter decor. I, too, made a cozy tea spot the focus of my tray! What beautiful teacups and teapot you have.

I love your teatime tray Debbie! I always think a quiet cup of tea on Easter morning gives you the time to reflect on the true meaning of the day. I loved the butterfly cups and their meaning. Surrounded by all your pretty Easter decorations, your dining room is certainly ready for Easter to arrive. Thanks for the inspiration and I wish you a beautiful Easter Day.

Debbie, your pretty Easter tray along with the verses from Romans touches my heart. It really isn't Easter without the death (for our sins) and the resurrection of Christ!
I also am admiring your painted tray. Did you do that by hand? It is really lovely.

Happy Easter to you!

The dining room is the perfect spot for sipping a pot of tea in your unusual cups and saucers. How delightful to have a gift from family take center stage! The ceramic bunny is lovely (Fitz and Floyd perhaps?). A sweet tray that everyone will enjoy! Happy Easter

This is such a cute idea and suits my idea of decorating for Easter! So much to celebrate with the most important being the great gift given by God of Jesus taking the punishment for what we deserve and defeating death through His resurrection. Amazing gift!! Along with this comes renewed life in the spring. So much to be thankful for!

Hi Debbie, your butterfly teacups are so so pretty. When I think of a tray, tea is the first thing that comes to mind. I love that white teapot; white is always the easiest to fit in to every season's decor. During the cooler months a cup of hot tea is my afternoon ritual. Hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend.

What a lovely post, Debbie! I enjoyed seeing all of your Easter decor. Your tea tray is put together beautifully. I like how you gather items and display them so creatively.
