A Rerun Of Our Chinoiserie Easter Table




With my kitchen all torn up because of The One Room Challenge™, I am not doing a beautiful Easter table this year.  But I am still so smitten with the table I set last year that I am sharing these images again.  I had so much fun making these eggs even though I set out to make pink ones at the outset.  Call it a happy accident that I ended up with these gorgeous deep blue beauties.  And as with all things in my life, all roads lead to Chinoiserie. It's like we are the ChinoiserVs with my mister as a reluctant but indulgent bystander.






Click here for more detailed info on how I actually made these.








An example of the pink color I was originally trying to achieve but I wasn't happy with the speckling and splotching.  That is when I shifted to the blue colorway but of course I could not resist slamming some gold on that pink.   Imma one trick pink and gold, chinoisy, animal printed pony.

Speaking of Chinoiserie, have you guys seen this goodness that Emilie is cooking up over at Shell & Chinoiserie for her ORC room in the link up? Living for these chintz chairs against that Imperial Trellis wallpaper!

Be sure to head over to Calling it Home to see what all the linking participants are up to this week.  So many great spaces coming together!

Have a good Friday on this Good Friday!

Oh my gosh, that's ME!!! 8-D Thank you, thank you, thank you Emily! So flattered!!!

And that table is to die for! You need to trademark those eggs! Here's what I'm thinking: while Mr. V imparts his knowledge on Mr. Shell & Chinoiserie (hahaha--poor guy), you teach me all things Easter Eggs?

I totally imagined these eggs as a print today and wanted them for my house. :)

And you call this "not beautiful"? It's fabulous! Would it be tacky to ask the name of the chinoiserie china? Everything is wonderful, but the salad plates might be the second most wonderful after the eggs!
