This Easter I’m using the bounty of early spring to set an easy, airy table. Easter will be here before we know it and it’s time to think about setting an Easter table. Don’t you love early spring? Nests and eggs and sleepy twigs waking up and bursting with delicate buds! Such a welcome sight after a long winter. This year’s Easter table reflects all that is beautiful about the season.
I’m keeping this table simple and elegant and full of spring inspired charm.
The centerpieces were a spin-off of a 10 MINUTE EASTER DECORATING post I did a week or so ago.
I turned this easy decoration….
Into these tall, fresh centerpieces…
I used hammered silver and glass hurricanes and filled them up with some delicately colored eggs I’ve collected over the years. The ends of the white cherry blossom branches are hidden in the eggs. I think this helps to make the branches look more real.
I just had book club and used this tablescape. A friend sitting next to me asked if the branches were real! I love that! I grab up beautiful, almost-real-but-faux blooms whenever I see them! The are such a find and a very good investment.
I’ve collected these from my local Pottery Barn Outlet over the last two years!
Tiny bird’s nests perched on mercury glass candlesticks gives the illusion of finding a bird’s nest in the branches!
No tablecloth or runner. I’m letting the beauty of the concrete table shine through!
It was love at first sight when I found this table but I got terrible buyers remorse while I waited for it to arrive at StoneGable. I bought it without seeing it first hand. But as soon as the nice delivery men set it up in my dining room it was love all over again. I have been thrilled with this stunningly unusual table! It is the FORSYTHE TABLE from Birch Lane.
This tablescape has a simple, natural look that is paired with some upscale polished touches. I think that is my very favorite way to decorate! A lot of classic styling, simple natural and organic with a little bit of upscale luxe. Sorta classic/farmhouse/chic!
One plate with pretty raised edges at each place is all this tablescape needs. I alternated square and round plates of the same pattern around the table.
I love love love to stack plates but for this table simple is best!
I got the plates from HomeGoods years ago!
Simple white napkins are folded on the plates with an assortment of bird’s nests topping off each place setting.
The eggs in the nest are different shades of blue.
From the lightest hint of just-barely-there-blue…
To a sky blue eggs dotted with areas that look like pinpoint, mottled clouds!
My kitchen has been my laboratory for 3 days as I tried to make the perfect naturally dyed blue egg.
I’ll be sharing all the shades of blue eggs I created and my dye recipe later this week! Look for the upcoming post!
My table is ready for Easter! I hope you are inspired and have some ideas to take away and use on your Easter table this year!
HAPPY EASTER TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY!
