Two More Easter Tablescapes


Happy Easter
I thought I'd share two tablescapes...last night, we had a dinner party for a dear friend who successfully defended her thesis. We were going to a restaurant, but at the last minute, we decided to stay here. Bandwith grilled steaks, and I made Napoleons.






This is the Sunday morning tablescape...

I paired the Ansley wedding china with gold chargers from Big Lots.





Bandwith is cooking today! He's been watching Gordon Ramsey on Youtube.
Hope your day is lovely, wherever you are.
Gollum, Dr. Gollum, & Bandwith

  21. The napkin rings are to DIE for! I love BOTH settings! Your china is gorgeous and the bunnies steal my heart, especially the one with the carrot, so precious! Hope you had a great day. We just got home from my son's. He set his table with my Grandmothers china that I just gave him a few months ago, it was so pretty for spring. I took pictures so hope to post it maybe on TT. Hugs, Pinky PS, did I mention I LOOOOOVE the napkin rings:):):):)

  22. Both tablescapes are stunning G. your Ansley wedding china is so gorgeous and those turtles are sumptious.

    If young bandwith is cooking one of Ramsey's specials I know it is going to be good, I just hope he doesnt pick up any bad words along the way lol.

    I saved some room for one of those Napoleans if by chance there are any left?. Kathy.

    I'm having a cookbook give-away today.

  27. DG, I absolutely love those turtle napkin rings! Will you share where they came from? Fine looking tables, both. Now is young Bandwidth following in the footsteps of his brother the chef? It is very nice that he enjoys entertaining with you and Dr. Gollum. Hope your easter was a beautiful day.
