mercury glass and moss Easter tablescape

Hello Friends! I finally finished my tablescape for Easter. Today I am sharing our mercury glass and moss Easter tablescape.

As I shared before I wanted to create a tablescape using mercury glass pieces and moss decor. I all came together lovely.

I feel like we have been waiting for the Easter holiday f.o.r.e.v.e.r this year since it’s so late.  We had Spring Break at the beginning of the month and it usually ends with Easter Sunday so this year has felt a bit strange.  Nonetheless I am excited to celebrate it with the Masterpiece family.

After waiting so long now I feel like it snuck up on me.  Lol.  I set the table so we can enjoy it all week leading up to the holiday.  I’m working on refining the menu and completing the kids’ baskets.  Yes, they are both teenagers.  Yes, I still make them Easter baskets.  And yes, I still use the same gingham Pottery Barn baskets I bought them when they were littles.  I think we all love the tradition of it all.

But back to the table.  I love mercury glass, as I know many of you do as well, but I have never used it for my Easter table.  I love how the bling-y glass mixes with the organic moss.  The play on feels and textures just gets me every time.

For all Holidays I use our Lenox china, Waterford crystal and Camusso S.A. sterling flatware.  This year we added our new Laguiole knives that we received as a Christmas gift from my cousin.  They are b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l and of amazing quality.  The knives cut everything just like butter.  They are definetly heirloom quality and we are extremely fortunate to have been gifted these.

The oversized French bread board always sits on top of our dining room table so I decided to keep it as the footprint for the mercury glass and moss adornments.  I love the color of the wood as the backdrop.

The wood board, driftwood chargers and twig napkin rings all add an extra layer of organic rustic along with the moss.  I love the juxtaposition it creates against the fine china, crystal & sterling.  The large moss Easter eggs are a DIY from a few years ago and you can find out more on this post  {eye catching ways to add moss to your tabletop}.

I used some April Cornell napkins I’ve had forever.  The colors on these napkins coordinated with our everyday plates when we first got married and my mother in law gave these to me years ago.  I love their time worn use and muted colors.  They have a perfect soft spring palette.

Our menu is pretty standardized but I am experimenting with a new dessert that I hope to share if it’s a success. The dessert is topped with bananas foster and when I mentioned it to Mr. M he said banana fosters is one of my favorites desserts why haven’t you made it sooner?  Well, who knew?  Never mind we will  be celebrating  22 years of marriage next month.

I hope everyone that celebrates, enjoys a peaceful and blessed Easter with their loved ones.

“For I remember it is Easter morn. And life and love and peace are all new born.”
