A perfect Easter table doesn’t have to be the traditional pinks, and blues with gingham, but what it does need to have is a story. This Easter table all started with my rabbit motif Spode china. Its story was to be sophisticated and charming using pieces that fit in a country color scheme…the English countryside that is!
I love to create boxwood chargers (charger base form here) for elevation and color. In addition to being just fun, they can be made a week or even two ahead of time.
Ok, here is the charm. Use vintage brooches, like this wagon of my grandmothers, and pin it onto the ribbon used to tie your napkins.
These napkins were picked for their off white color and detail, again charming and country! The ribbon was a Christmas Ballard Designs purchase still in stock with other fabulous color choices.
Garden concrete bunny is from Michaels and has an opening in its basket for wet foam & fresh florals.
Fringed garlands are an easy DIY with BIG impact. I purchase most of my crepe from Cartefini, the color choices are amazing! It’s as easy as rolling out the paper, cut your desired width and length and fringe.
Basket is from the Williams Sonoma outlet. I filled it with two bunches of traditional Gypsophilia or baby’s breath. There are newer types of gyp like “Million Star” but in my opinion, it is not as pretty for use in baskets.
*This dried amazingly!
I’m a loyal Whole Foods fan when it comes to tiny cakes and pies. So this chocolate pie was perfect for my story and sat perfectly on a vintage pie stand.
Look around your home for things you love that can inspire an Easter table that tells your story. Maybe it is your grandmother’s china or a great wrapping paper you’ve held on to, or how about yard cuttings and blown out white eggs tucked into it, regardless, take this time to celebrate and decorate.
Happy Easter! Love, Amanda
