A Gracious Easter – Ideas For The Perfect Table

Easter Table Setting

Easter is quickly approaching!  We think this holiday is the perfect occassion to celebrate Spring, share time and a lovely meal with your loved ones, and decorate the house!   The highlight of a Easter celebration can be a beautifully decorated table.  This is the space you gather around, to share a meal, to talk, to be together – so make it beautiful.

We’ve been inspired this Easter season, and these are our five ideas to create a beautiful table setting for Easter.

1. Mix and Match Your China

What a fun way to show off your dishes!  Create a combination of solid color, geometrical pattern and botanical prints for a bright and beautiful table setting.  We especially love delicate floral blossoms on plates and pastel colored stemware.

2. Bring Out The Silver

Silver gets a bad reputation for being a pain to polish, but it is well worth the effort for holiday occasions.  We find that silver candlesticks go beautifully with springtime colors.  How gorgeous is this serving dish with a lid?  We can just see it holding a delicious side dish, or maybe a brunch casserole.

3. Pretty Vintage Accents

For the perfect tablescape, the details, no matter how small, set apart the amateur tables from the experts.  We love a table full of treasures to be uncovered.  We’ve found porcelain duckling figurines to tuck between bowls or in floral arrangements.  We came across ornate flower figurines in various sizes, which look great around the table, perhaps on top of a candleholder.  Vintage paper Easter eggs, with sweet pictures are our favorite Easter decoration; a bowl filled with pretty eggs like this would make a great centerpiece.

4. Don’t Forget the Linens

The small details and beautiful accent pieces that you select for your table are important – but don’t neglect the basis – great linen!  We love ornately embroidered placemats and napkins, in beautiful pastel shades.  Vintage linens are the way to go – they really don’t make them like they used to!

5. Fun Cocktail Napkins

Serve appetizers, drinks or dessert alongside a colorful and fun cocktail napkin.  It’s the small finishing touches that can really add the extra pizzaz to your party.  We loved these bird on a twig design, because they work perfectly for Easter, and can still be appropriate throughout the rest of the season!
