Time for a change on the shelves...


Finally this week, I've got around to changing the display in my buffet-hutch. It was long overdue as I'd promised myself I would change it every month! Oh well, you know what they say...better late than never! I decided to go with an Easter theme and tried to use what I had at hand...





 I used a dinner set (Summer Breeze) that I bought as a 24 piece about 6 years ago. I bought other pieces gradually from the Outlet shop at Harbourtown (Gold Coast), saving quite a bit that  way. Then it was discontinued and the prices were really low then! But I decided not to buy all the extra pieces as I had so much china already! But I have enough of the basic pieces for a 10 person setting, which is great when the family gathers here for a meal. (ha ha! looking at the photo, I realise that I haven't put out the covered vegetable dish yet!)

I have a little collection of old Easter egg cups that I've brought out of storage...

Here's 2 more! These would come with a small chocolate egg and were very popular when i was a little girl.


I've added a doily from my collection of vintage linen, as well as some odd cups which have lots of yellow in them. There's a few items from the variety discount store in my local shopping centre to finish off my Easter display.

you can never have too much china...I bet Summer Breeze will start turning up in op-shops soon, so you can keep adding

Blue and yellow just shout Easter to me - your display looks lovely. I've come across a few bloggers who do displays for different times of the year - nice idea. My display hasn't changed for as long as I can remember !! We're doing our egg giving tomorrow night as half of my family are going away for Easter. In case I don't get the chance, I hope you have a happy Easter. xoxox
