My dear readers….I am re-posting my Easter Tablescape from 2016, I re-posted it last year too…because it is one of my favorites!
I thought about re-creating it, but I am too lazy.
Maybe next year I will re-create it, but add a little of this and take away a little of that. LOL
If you look closely, you will see the dark mahogany plantation shutters and woodwork from 3 years ago.
Things are a lot lighter and brighter these days.
Don’t ya love seeing older photos of the way we were? so to speak.
So without further ado,…please read on.
I have been planning our Easter menu and tablescape. So without further ado…I will point out a few of the pieces on my table, perhaps it will give you inspiration for your own Easter tablescape.
Since I have been touting Spring for the last few posts, I wanted my table to be charming and airy and full of blooming branches, reflecting all the beautiful things of the Spring Season.
I love the smell of Spring and the nesting of the birds outside in my Secret Garden.
I enjoy hearing the birds sing in the early mornings as they flutter around building their nests and so it inspired me to use bird’s nests and apple/cherry blossoms for my table.
Of course, I do not have an apple tree or cherry tree in bloom, so I am using faux stems of white blossoms.
I filled two clear cylinder vases with delicately colored eggs of all sizes (I have been collecting eggs and branches for quite some time) and then I stuck the branches of the white blooms in the vases.
I added a few more eggs to hide the stem ends.
The branches are from Pottery Barn and Michael’s and Hobby Lobby. (see the vignette here)
I try to buy them on sale and most importantly, I want them to look as real as possible.
I also tucked a few bird’s nests on the table and on one of my mercury glass candlesticks. Doesn’t it look like a real birds nest hiding among the branches of white blossoms?
Ok, well, kinda sorta!
I love the varying heights of the other two mercury glass candlesticks, each sporting a short candle.
I also used round gray placemats down the center of the table, and placed bunny egg cups at each table setting.
The bunny egg cups were so cute when I found them at World Market that I couldn’t resist buying them to replace the simple white egg cups I was originally going to use on the table.
Each place setting consists of two plates…a white dinner plate, a salad plate and a simple folded napkin.
On top of the napkin, I placed another bird’s nest with yet another egg for each guest.
After all, it is Easter and I love to dye eggs…I can’t imagine an Easter without dyed eggs.
I know some people love the candy eggs or the plastic eggs filled with candy, but for me, I have to have white boiled eggs, dyed a pretty pale color.
It is a ritual for me!
It isn’t Easter without boiling and dyeing the eggs. And it isn’t Easter without bunnies!
I put cloth carrots into this bunny candy dish. I bought the orange cloth and burlap carrots at Pier 1 a couple weeks ago and the bunny candy dish I bought on-line last year.
I purposefully used two different patterns of white dinnerware for the dinner plate and the salad plate. I love to decorate with a few upscale touches mixed with a natural look.
Simple, yet classic styling. I am not sure there is a title for that look…eclectic-farmhouse-shabby-chic-Spanish-Mediterranean-Kari’s look?
Anyway, the white dinner plates I bought at Pottery Barn Outlet several years ago and the salad plates I bought at Pier 1. The bubbled stemmed glasses are from Target…an on-line buy last year.
The salt and pepper bunny and carrot were a gift from a dear friend of mine….I just love how cute he is!
So now that my table is ready for Easter, I am going to share with you my planned Menu!
Have you planned your Easter dinner menu?
I hope you liked my tablescape and found a few ideas to use on your Easter table this year!
Please comment and share your plans, I would love to hear.
