Easter decoration in the dining room

At least 90% of my Easter decorations come from my mother's friend Diana. Diana is no longer with us, but I am the proud caretaker of many of her holiday decorations. The majority of the Easter decorations are going in my dining room.

This table runner looks homemade. Diana or her mother could have easily made this--they were mega-talented like that.

Take a look at the Easter-themed coffee/tea set, complete with the pot, sugar bowl and creamer.

This little bunny wagon is holding a set of bunny salt- and pepper-shakers.

There are approximately 50 Easter eggs of all shapes and sizes, including glass, porcelin, wood and actual eggs, in with Diana's Easter decorations. Diana was not kidding around with the eggs. I put many of them, including two lambs, into the centerpiece bowl.

My Waterford bowl is filled with most of the glass eggs.

Two large bunnies sit on the buffet.

They're looking at this basket. Which is filled with beautifully-decorated wooden eggs and carrot ornaments. I really need to consider an Easter tree!

Or, they could just be appalled at the layer of dust on the buffet.
I prefer to think they're looking at the basket.

Nicely done on the Easter decorations! Martha would be proud... I love all the eggs, that's quite the collection.
