With Easter less than a month away, I've been putting together a few ideas for how I want my tablescape to look for this special holiday. I've decided to go with some pretty pastels that include shades of peach, pink and turquoise.
This turquoise tablecloth provides a backdrop to a peach coloured chiffon table runner (Amazon last year).
The colours were chosen from these plates I got last year. They are by Bico and are called "Margaret's Garden". (available on Amazon)
I started with a round woven placemat followed by a white charger topped with the pretty floral plates.
I set one of these faux cookies beside an aqua coloured napin with a birdie napkin ring.
This one was butterfly shaped...
...and this one was a little chick. They could easily act as placecard holders and I might add a name tag to each one.
I thought my gold-rimmed turquoise/pink stemware went well with the place settings.
Blossom shaped tealight holders added a springtime vibe.
My gold flatware was tied with white ribbon and set atop the plate stack.
A trio of faux tulip arrangements provided a cohesive and coordinated centerpiece.
Along with the tulips, I added faux lamb's ear and some white blossoms.
The rattan pots tied in with the woven placemats.
I tucked in a few bunnies...
...and birdies for some whimsy.
Faux taper candles were set in between each of the tulip arrangements.
If you need an easy centerpiece idea, remember that a set of three arrangements with candles in between works well.
With my Easter tablescape planned out, now I just need to think of what to serve. We've traditionally done a turkey dinner but with out-of-town family visiting, I think I might want to keep it simpler.
What do you usually serve on Easter?
