My Easter Tablescape!

One of the things I love doing is creating a tablescape. Whether it’s for a holiday, a special event, or a dinner party, creating the tablescape is one of my favorite tasks.

I recently created my Easter tablescape to entertain the family and friends. You might enjoy seeing a glimpse of this holiday table.

I always start with a color scheme in mind. This sets the tone for everything that I’m going to use on the table. Since my dining room design used strong doses of bold color, I decided to follow suit on the Easter table. I used a combination of green tones, cobalt, blue, pink, and touches of gold. I used bright, happy, clear tones of my selected colors to give my table a fresh spring feeling.
Add rich color.

I started by layering a few different fabrics as tablecloths placed randomly on the table. A fresh green upholstery fabric and a pink runner gathered across the table. Then I layered a mix of lacy gold placemats on top of the tablecloths.

I used a mix of two styles of gold chargers, both shiny and matte finish, which added additional sparkle to the table under my china. Next, it was time to select which china I would use. I chose a mixture of classic blue and white china, and I used a mix of patterns featuring florals.

For stemware, I used some beautiful cobalt blue glass goblets and clear glass champagne flutes.

I used a mix of traditional-style gold flatware at each place setting. Pink and white peony napkin rings gathered the fresh stem green, blue plaid, and gold napkins.

The centerpiece was a mix of pink peonies in a blue and white planter. I used a combination of antique brass candleholders and some crystal candleholders that came from my mother.

I have a collection of jeweled Easter eggs displayed across the table as well. This added more color and sparkle to the table.

Place cards were used at each place setting, and a menu for our Easter celebration was included on the table.

Add rich color.

The children voted to have a separate children’s table this year, they usually prefer this, and they also like participating in the decorations.

The children’s table was adorned with blue and white checkered melamine plates layered on top of the white places with a dotted rim. Pink acrylic glasses are reminiscent of antique patterned glassware, and they provide a punch of color with the ease of acrylic for the children’s table. This year, we used my collection of silver-plated bunny place card holders, and for the centerpiece, my porcelain bunny pitcher was placed on top of a metal and crystal plate stand. It was the perfect size for a small table.

Chocolate bunnies, wrapped in colorful foil, were placed at each setting along with the place cards and glittered easter eggs.

To finish off the table, I placed bunny ears at each place setting to be worn for our annual Easter egg hunt!

I hope you enjoyed this glimpse of my own Easter celebration!

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter!
