“Easter made Easy”
Stylist Alanna Davey uses vintage and antique pewter water jugs to hold bouquets of spring flowers for
her Easter table setting.
We love how stylists use antiques in new ways, so when Alanna stopped by the shop this week we asked
her if she could talk about her “Easter made Easy” feature inCanadian Living, April 2015 (pages 94-101).
Alanna said, “I wanted to do a take on Easter light blue but not kitschy”; something “very simple, clean,
and fresh”; “something that was easy going, almost casual”; and “something attainable for everybody.”
Alanna’s use of vintage and antique pewter jugs to hold spring bouquets with Queen Anne’s Lace is a
charming example of how to use antiques in new and interesting ways while highlighting just what Alanna
means by “Easter made Easy.”

Birks Regency Plate “York” Pattern (all monogrammed)
Birks produced their most popular patterns in both silver plate and in sterling silver. For example, Birks
Regency Plate “York” (above) is called “Saxon” in sterling silver. We have both and can fill your pattern
or help you find the pieces you have been looking for. Please contact us for prices.
Overall, we have a large number of individual pieces and place settings. If you have half a set or inherited a
set and want to finish it, or if you don’t know what your set is called we can also pattern match.
Whether you want to add to your flatware service or are looking for inspiring ways to set the table, stop by
the shop, we would be pleased to help.
