I can hardly believe it’s April and Easter is just around the corner. This year we are hosting both families. Mine for dinner on Saturday and Anthony's for brunch on Sunday. Wish me luck, 28 people in less than 24 hours.
I want to make things as simple as possible, so I went with potted flowers instead of fresh cut this year. When I'm arranging florals, the kitchen can get real messy, real quick and for some reason, one of two stems always wilt an hour or two after being in our house, so I'm rearranging the next morning.
I splurged on some new linen linens from Europe. The table runner is extra wide and long enough to drape over the table, and the napkins are oversized and perfect for making bunny ears.
I used my traditional white plates and added bunny salad plates from Pottery Barn. Keeping the same pattern but adding seasonal salad plates is a great way to keep the decor fresh but on budget. The average salad plate is only $5.99. Storing the smaller size is easier as well. I picked up a few textured, pink, bunny glasses from Homesense. I love how sweet they look on the table. The kids will get such a kick out of them.
Anthony made the place card holders on the scroll saw. I thought the little white bunnies is the perfect touch, and it gives the kids something to play with while they are sitting at the table. They are available in the Tesser Traditions Shop.
I love the way everything came together, simple but festive. I also like that I can move the potted flowers around so I can enjoy them in every room.
The little eggs are cardboard, I got the kit from Walmart. Aren’t they adorable, and I can pack them away.
I hope this post gave you a little inspiration for your Easter Tablescape. Are you hosting this year? Leave a comment and let me know what your plans are for Easter.
