I struggle with decorating for Easter. I know part of it is because I don't much care for pastel colours and they don't go with the decor in my home. After seeing some great inspiration on various blogs, I decided to go in a different direction and created a more "natural" looking Easter Tablescape for 2011.
Thus, I was thrilled when I happened upon these little guys at a local grocery store. I fell in love with their bronze colour and "natural" beauty!
Then I created a centerpiece that adds a bit of the TRUE meaning of Easter by using a cross placed on faux greenery under a cloche.
Keeping with my more natural theme, I used alternating brown and green napkins folded in the "Artichoke Fold" (directions found here on BNOTP) and placed faux eggs and some bits of greenery inside. I like the little "nest" this type of fold creates.
These were placed on alternating sage green and pale yellow dishes and brown "woven look" chargers. I used a sage green tablecloth and cream coloured runner.
Beside each place setting, an egg cup was used as a tealight holder and individual salt & peppers are at the ready.
My amber stemware went well with the colour scheme.
Flanking the centerpiece are my crystal pillar candle holders and vases filled with pebbles, faux greenery and tulips.
And here is how it all came together...
