He has Risen - Tablescape Thursday



Again we need to thank Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting this special event. Be sure to visit her and find a list of all the other wonderful people participating and their fabulous tablescapes. I promise it will be a feast for the eyes.

This year I chose to celebrate the true meaning of Easter. Our Lord Jesus Christ has Risen. Hallelujah, He arose.




My centerpiece is to remember the occasion.
The yard statues remind me of His angels that always watch over me.
The thorns on the roses remind me of His Crown of Thorns.
The two crucifix remind me that He died on the cross for my sins.
The dove candleholders remind me that He has risen.



Both of the crucifix are very special to my DH. Both have been blessed by the Pope on different trips to the Vatican. This one belonged to his mother.



This crucifix belonged to his grandmother. Both of them are cherished possessions.



For the tablesetting, I used my gold chargers, and the white octagon plates I found at GW, my cabbage plates and the bowls that remind me of Lilys. The silverware was my grandmothers Paul Revere service. The goblets are ones I've had for over 20 yrs.



This is a view of the whole table. As you celebrate this Holy day with family and friends, I pray that the Lord will bless you with his presence and grace.

I also have a special Blessing prayer and thank you for Barb @ Grits and Glamour for designing and giving me my wonderful new blog dress. She embodies the very essence of love and friendship and I am so honored to have her as a friend. Thanks Barb, I love it.

Thank you so much for sharing part of this special occassion with me. I always appreciate your visits. Thanks for stopping by and God Bless.

  3. Your tablescape is just beautiful, but your description was awsome. Honestly, tears filled my eyes. So much of the time the spirit of Easter is lost on the Easter Bunnies and new dresses. It was son nice to hear how you feel about Easter and our Lord.
    Hope you have a wonderful night and blessed tomorrow.
    Smiles,
    Pat

  24. Hello Marty...

    So glad that you came by for a visit on Wordless Wednesday! I see by your tablescape that your thoughts about Easter are running along the same lines as mine!

    You know, I love the cute little bunnies and Easter eggs, etc. but if we think that's what Easter is all about...well, so sad!!! I feel the same about Christmas!

    Anyway...you have set a beautiful remembrance table in honor of our Lord and that He LIVES!!! Your centerpiece symbolizes what Easter is truly all about...so beautifully!!!

    Sending you and your family my very best wishes and blessing for a wonderful Easter!!!
    Love ya,
    Chari

  26. Oh Marty, it's just beautiful! How special the crucifix to be blessed by the Pope, I grew up Catholic....my great aunt is still living and is a nun, she's in her 70's and lives in a Mother house. She has been to the Holy Land several times and brought back holy water and other gifts for the family. Your I love the yellow roses and the reminder of their significant meaning! Thank you for sharing your table. Your new look is fabulous....is it a custom overlay that Barb did for you? Have a blessed day! Luanne

  29. Marty, There is just so much beauty to see on your blog today-your table, your commentary, and your new blog look. I love the way you tied everything into the meaning of Easter (down to the bowls that look like Easter lillies). And I love that you used such special items in your center piece. When I opened up your blog, the first thing I noticed is that lovely picture in your header. It really looks like "A Stroll Through Life". laurie
