Colloquy

In my perfect world,
to honor both 
Easter and Passover,
a Seder is offered at 
The Cloisters.
The grand architectural museum, 
filled with gorgeous history from 
French monasteries and abbeys, 
creates a setting
for the anticipated irony 
within the layers of Belief.
Welcome,
to a corner of the abbey.

Pink

Welcome...
to the children's table.





Mini cupcakes...


cotton-tail toppers...


nesting grass and egg garland...


pink stripes...
(disclaimer: not a fan of cloth bunnies, but at the store  
someone had bent her arm to look as if 
she wanted nothing to do with the basket.
A bunny with attitude.  
Hilarious at the time...
and now, well, the dress works.)
  


straws and Kisses...


white chocolate bunnies...


flowers...


and napkins... 
(green for the table 
while pink wrap the vases)


for a colorful Spring table.

Dining with the Nobles

Welcome!
...to the "upstairs" rabbit patch.


In honor of this aristocratic gathering,
the details shine in silver.
The twins on the sideboard are given a silver coat upgrade.



The black and silver eggs are an easy DIY. 
Details below.



Gray organza is draped over the napkin 
with a tablecloth in white rosette.









White egg cups are sprayed with a silver wash.








DIY black and silver eggs:
Paint the eggs with craft paint. 
Use a glue gun to create "raised" designs.
Dry brush to highlight only the "raised" design.  
A green and gold option...



The process is the same for the silver twins 
(paint and then dry brush to highlight) 
who are returning to their original patina hue
(shown below) 
using this same method.















Whether you're dining upstairs or downstairs...












Easter Color

Enjoy Easter 
with a splash of color!
