Easter is one of my favorite holidays, and since I love setting a pretty table for any occasion I took the time to put together a wonderful tablescape for Easter.
I hope that this provides you with some inspiration to decorate your table this year!
I enjoy runners as a base for my table. Since Easter is all about the outdoors I chose a runner made of linen that is cream colored with a tan border to represent natural fibers.
As a center piece I choose an arrangement of green hydrangeas with a pop of color and whimsy by adding a berry spray in the middle that shoots up and droops wonderfully. This bring the colors of spring flowers indoors.
Next up are the place settings. I love layers. I start with a round charger made from natural fibers to again bring out the nature aspect. White dishes are a workhorse in my tablescapes. You can use them everyday or dress them up for more formal settings. In this display I layered white dinner plates and white salad plates. In between I added a wonderful cabbage green dinner plate. Cabbage screams Spring and pulls this together well. On top I set a wonderful white footed bowl.
Small cabbage bowls are set to the side and can be used to hold Easter treats, or a small side dish. I've put a wicker nest filled with green wood grass and a decoupage egg at each place setting this year. It lends a touch of elegance and whimsy.
Attention to small details will also help pull this together. I've pair some sweet lace edged light green napkins with a big yellow flower napkin holder. Again with the spring theme these colors compliment the whole table.
What's Easter without bunnies? I love bunnies and would not have a table without them. Here they are depicted in a wonderful platter, and a sweet little teapot! Pull out all your bunnies and scatter them around.
Last but certainly not least I've taken a little time this year to decoupage some eggs. Using blown eggs and a couple of napkins you can create these treasures that will elevate your table to the next level and add that extra special touch. I was so happy with how these turned out and they are more vibrant than show in the pictures. These will keep for years, and I can't wait to make more!
I hope you found some inspiration to decorate your table this year.
