I've really ventured outside my comfort zone for my Easter Tablescape this year going with this purple and pink creation. I've made it know in previous posts that I'm not a big fan of pastel colours and I find Easter decorating challenging because of it. However, this Easter, we are expecting to have both our son (& girlfriend) and daughter home for the weekend so I decided we needed a FUN table for our Easter brunch.
The starting point for my tablescape came when I found this colourful metal butterfly wreath at The Bargain Shop. I thought it had potential...
Secondary inspiration came from a few of these white "lacy" pots I bought at a local decor store but I see you can get them at Ikea as well.
By adding some greenery under the butterfly wreath and putting some tulips in the white pot on a cake plate, I was able to create a centerpiece.
Here are some close-up pics of the items I put around the white pot...
A "boy bunny" on one side (by Partylite years ago)
A "girl bunny" on the other side (by Partylite years ago)
I always like to have a reminder of what the TRUE meaning of Easter is so added a CROSS candle on each side as well
This one was a pink cross
and on the other side, a blue one
Next, I put some faux wheat grass with purple and gold Easter eggs in another white pot and placed one on each side of the centerpiece.
A little birdie helps bring more of the white colour and a spring feel to the table.
Each place setting began with a square white charger, a white dinner plate topped with pink floral plate from HomeSense a couple years back.
A purple compote dish was filled with purple "grass" and an egg cup filled with Easter treats. I bought the pink trio of eggs ready made but "crafty" people could probably whip these up on their own with some tulle and choc eggs on a stick.
I used my new "P-Touch" label maker to create placecards by putting name labels on plastic Easter eggs.
Pink napkins were folded "accordion" style and topped with a glittery egg. Now that I look at the pic, I'm thinking I'm going to go back to the table and turn them the other way to have more of a butterfly look!
These glasses will be filled with an orange punch for our Easter brunch.
And here's how it looks altogether...
Tablecloth and placemats were a new purchase from The Bargain Shop.
On the Menu will be a family favourite, Eggs Benedict along with pork sausages, fruit salad and cinnamon buns.
This tablescape is for our Easter Brunch but its quite possible, it will have to serve double-duty as our Easter dinner table setting as well so here is a couple pics by candlelight...
Okay, so I pulled the curtains closed at 3 pm to get the "night" effect!
Yes, I'm thinking this setting will work just as well for our evening meal...
Thanks for sticking with me to the end of this photo intensive post!
Hope you have a Blessed Easter Weekend with a meaningful worship service at your church
and fun with friends and family!
I'll be linking this post to these terrific blog parties this week.
