Easter lunch on an old country veranda

Easter lunch is usually spent with my family and it is the first real catch up since Christmas, however it is much more relaxed. The weather is cooler and the days are shorter and it is a perfect time to just eat chocolate with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate (or glass of wine).

My table setting reflects the changes in our seasons right now here in Australia, we still have wonderful Autumn colours everywhere, but there is also the natural and rustic winter tones coming through. I put a little chocolate hen in the middle of a nest that I made out of a mix of scraggly moss and this wonderful stuff from the garden and I then popped a few lovely bird feathers around the nest. I used a huge wicker vase to hold an enormous bunch of Babies Breath and I especially picked these bread rolls to match my setting as they had a earthy look to them.

(Do you think that might be going a bit too far)

Don't forget to visit Susan from Between Naps on the Porch for many more wonderful table settings for Tablescape Thursday. Susan has a gorgeous table setting near her window on a beautiful white wicker table.
