It's easy to create a beautiful tablescape for an Easter brunch: simply use the holiday's iconic symbols (eggs, baskets) and colors (pastels). Cover the serving table with a yellow table cloth ($120) and offer the food on large white platters ($70). Throw in striped cocktail napkins ($3) and colorful plates ($2.50) and glasses ($12). Add a few Easter baskets ($4) and a gorgeous bouquet of flowers and call it a day!
How are you decorating for Easter?
We're celebrating Easter with just our family this year, so I wanted to create a special table that both the grown-ups and kids would love. First, I created a centerpiece with grocery store flowers and perennial Easter favorites . . . Peeps!
Then I made chargers out of fresh magnolia leaves from our backyard.
Finally, the placecards are created from plastic eggs and glitter.
The table is all set . . . now who's cooking?!
I set out to create an Easter tablescape for my fictional character, Clara, a 13-year-old girl who is hosting her first Junior League luncheon. The mandate was to create an Easter tablescape for her fellow Junior League members that was fun and colorful but not "kiddish." I took my inspiration from the paisley tablecloth and pulled my color story of soft blues and pinks with a healthy dose of white. With the colors set, I pulled dishware with a vintage feel; milk-glass goblets, dinner plates with dental-molding detail, and chargers with scallop edges. The centerpiece and table favors were a wink and a nod back to the Easter baskets many of us received as children, incorporating real and paper flowers, sod, coffee-filter wreaths, and lollipops in the shape of flowers.
I think I was able to create a table that was fun without using traditional elements like dyed eggs, lilies, or chocolate bunnies. In the end, I believe I was able to give my fictional client, Clara, exactly what she wanted – a grown-up table that is youthful but distinctly modern.
Glittered eggs, fuzzy bunnies, and pastel cellophane will decorate many a dining room table for the next month in anticipation of one of Spring's most celebrated holidays. Easter is hopping up on us and I've yet to pull out any kitschy egg or chick paraphernalia. Perhaps I'll start slow and ease on into it with the linens and pull out the big ears when it starts to warm up a bit. How 'bout you? Do you make your home frilly for the Spring festivities?
