A touch of Easter


Since today is Tuesday, I'm going to do something that I've never done before. I'm joining Marty at A Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday. Here is my Easter-inspired coffee table:


What do ya think? Simple but pretty? Now I know I'm taking a HUGE risk with the pedestal filled with jellybeans, but I really like the way it looks. I've already forewarned (or maybe it was threatened?) my curious children (especially that 8 year old) not to pull the cover off the pedestal because there will be a jellybean avalanche. So far so good. I'm just hoping he doesn't one day feel that a jellybean avalanche would be a fun thing.
If you get a chance, pop on over to Marty's and see what other talented bloggers are displaying on their tables. Have a great week!

  1. Oh how pretty. I love the linen and the basket full of eggs is so pretty. The candle and bird are great finishing touches. Now as for the cloche with the jelly beans, I think it is stunning. What a great idea. However, I would probably be the one to take the cover off and have candy all over the place. lol Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  5. I love your Easter display. The eggs look so pretty in the basket, and the jelly beans are just perfect and very tempting for your children I bet! I also created an Easter vignette for today's Tabletop Tuesday. I hope you can visit. Thanks for sharing!

  12. So pretty Gina. I am totally laughing picturing that jellybean avalanche. You probably wouldn't find them all until next Easter. Hope you are having a good week.

  14. Wish I could be there when someone forgets. It would have been my husband! Not the children!
    Your tabletop is precious!
