Easter Colours

We are having the most lovely weather at the moment – warm days but wonderful crisp mornings – don’t forget I am in Australia and we are heading towards winter!!
What better than to set a table, pretty with Easter colours, out in the garden. Usually at this time of the year my garden is very parched and thirsty looking but because we have had such amazing summer rains everything is green. Especially the weeds!!!
Well, I guess you can’t win them all.
Nothing says Easter like pink and yellow!! I have used these colours together at my sister’s gift shop and people are amazed that I have put them together. I think they are just gorgeous.
How gorgeous do those colours look with the sun shining on them???
My overgrown creeper on the fence behind is such a healthy green against the sherbet colours on the table.
Even my faded cushions from my sunroom look great on this old outdoor setting I picked up from the side of the road (much to my son’s disgust!)
I have used my pink polka dot flatware (I love that stuff!) and also a white set. Pink napkins I have had for a while but the yellow ones I found thrifting last year.
Now you can see what I mean about my overgrown creeper!!! Better than a dead creeper though! I love the way the rust is showing through the paint on the chairs (actually they are really rusty and I wouldn’t sit on them).
The flowers are off the bookcase in my familyroom so I just added a few little yellow heads to the arrangement.
More faded cushions but I do love those colours.

Where do I start to describe how pretty this scene is? Everything including the outdoor background is really nice. Yellow and pink are two of my favorite color combinations so I love the entire Easter theme you have going. It's so nice to have you join Your Cozy Home Party. I hope you can come again next week. -------- Shannon

Hi SuzyQ,
you made me smile with your comment, that your son was disgusted. I know exactly what you meant. LOL Mine would have been the same.
But your photos are gorgeous. The soft colors are perfect together and perfect for Easter, too. Thank you for sharing this sunny design.
Best greetings, Johanna


I would love for you to come share this at my linky party, Cowgirl Up! going on right now. Lot's of Farmhouse goodness over there!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

You created a lovely spring table with the pink and yellow that will look just as nice for Easter.

Kim, USA said...

Wow seeing your table inspire me to do mine. Though I can't put it outside here in Michigan it is still chilly but I will do it inside though. Happy weekdays!

Alycia Nichols said...

Yeah, yeah, yeah...I know I already commented yesterday, but I have my neighbor here and wanted her to see this post of yours to see how cool the colors are. She is hosting a shower for a friend's daughter, and the colors are pink & yellow. I wanted her to see pictures of it done right! :-)

Scribbler said...

I love pink and yellow -- so much that I painted some furniture in those colors years ago, and I still use it. Beautiful table.

Linda @ it all started with paint said...

What time should I be there for Easter brunch? Looks so inviting and Springy and I'm loving the yellow and pink combo!

Thanks so much for linking it up at our "It's a Cinch" party!



Sarah said...

What a beautiful outdoor setting. We're having some rain, but even before the wet days it was raining pollen here. Difficult to dine alfresco in these conditions, so thanks for sharing your delightful springtime table.

Michele M./ Finch Rest said...

Those colors really pop - and wow do they look nice together.

Savannah Granny said...

Suzy, I absolutely love your table. You are so correct pink and yellow are perfect for Easter and with your green grass in the background makes is over the top. Great job. Ginger

LV said...

How wonderful it would be to be able to sit at your table for Easter. I have never been to your world in the winter, but love it otherwise.

Anonymous said...

We have been enjoying green weeds here too. After the drought last year - it's such a blessing. Lots of weeds where the grass once was and lots of things bearing pollen this time of year.

Always gets me that you guys have opposite weather at the same holiday of the year.

I LOVE the pinks and yellows and whites. Awesome and great setting!

Happy Pink Saturday!


Just gorgeous! Your tablesetting for Easter with all the perfect and beautriful color dishes in pink, yellow and green is perfect! The pillows are gorgeous! Enjoy your weekend.
