Spring is in the air….Don’t you just love adding fresh, pretty touches to your home after a long dreary winter? If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know how much I love to share tablescape inspiration. Along with Thanksgiving and Christmas, Easter is one of those holidays where family’s tend to gather for a special meal. So, to give you a variety of inspiration, I’m sharing a two-part post series with several ideas for any style whether you are looking for something casual or formal….
Black & White Garden Casual Table
This first table is more casual and clean lined. Using black and white for Easter isn’t usually a traditional look, but I love how pretty spring greenery looks with the neutral palette of black and white. The check patterns give the look a more casual feel too.
For the centerpiece, I used a neutral runner down the center with some texture to it. Then I stacked some fun fabric colored books from Elements by. I love using the patterns and mix of colors to add height and unexpected look to the table. Then, I placed some neutral bunnies on the books and surrounded the whole arrangement with some pretty greenery. I love this particular style because it is wired, so you can maneuver the pieces in place how you want them. Then I added a few wooden eggs to give the easter feel and tie into the place settings.
For the place settings, I started with a black charger, then placed a square creme colored melamine plate on top. What makes this different is the square plate on the round charger, it’s just an unexpected match. I then layered this sweet linen napkin with the check bunny applique and placed the salad plate on top. To finish it off, I added this sweet little mini boxwood wreath and nestled a wooden egg inside.
This is perfect for a casual setting and can even be used outside with the melamine dishes. If you wanted to add more color, you could switch out the wooden eggs for a colored version.
Crisp White Easter Traditional Table
The next table is a little more of a traditional Easter look. By keeping things still a bit neutral and adding crisp white, spring greens and pretty tulips tucked in pretty white pitchers are just the right touch. I also placed a sweet little white bunny next to the birdcage.
For the centerpiece, I stayed with the same neutral runner and then added a sweet birdcage with some greenery, a nest and little eggs tucked inside. Just a few pretty white pitchers or vases with simple tulips (faux or real) give the festive touch to the whole look.
I love the simplicity and how the crisp white and spring green look so fresh.
the place settings, I started with a ruffled burlap place mat and placed a scalloped white and gold vintage looking charger and my everyday dinner plate. If you wanted it a bit more formal, you could use a fine china plate. Next, I laid a neutral linen napkin and a bird nest with a little white egg & one single(faux) tulip.
Neutral & Blues Bunny Table
This third table is another more traditional table with neutrals and a pop of fresh soft blue. The idea for this table came from the bunny accent plate. there are so many fun bunny themed plates available and they are the perfect set up to give your table the backdrop and color ideas.
The centerpiece started with the same basic table runner. In the center, I placed a cake plate with a bunny to tie in with the bunnies on the salad plate. Then i lined up a variety of wooden candle sticks to give height and texture to the look. To bring in the color, I clustered a variety of soft blue and creme faux hydrangea around the candle sticks to coordinate with the salad plates as well.
On this place setting, I worked with several layers to give lots of texture and character. I started with a ruffled burlap place mat and then a burlap charger on top. Next I used our every day dinner plates. To create a more formal look, you could use a nicer china. The star of the whole look is the pretty, colorful salad plate. You could use any Eater scene plate with color and then take the colors from that plate to finish the look. Any flowers you like and colors that are your favorite.
The other fun touch is the blue linen napkin folded like little bunny ears and then a wooden egg tucked in. Fold your napkin into a square and then fold one corner to meet the other to form a triangle. Then tightly roll up from the tip of the triangle. Grab the two ends together and tie leaving some space to create the “ears”. Then, place your egg into the opening.
