Want to set a whimsical Easter table but want to keep the bunnies and chicks to a minimum? Here’s how to use vibrant florals in your Easter Table Decorations for a sweet, enchanting table.
Styling tablescapes throughout the year have become something I look forward to. Tablescapes are simple to put together, you can typically use what you have around the house, and I love how they help to immerse me in the holidays. There might be snow outside but inside; it’s all Easter! A few times a year I join Chloe from Celebrate & Decorate for a Blog Hop where we all share our latest themed tablescape, and it’s time for our Spring Tablescape Blog Hop!
HOW TO USE VIBRANT FLORALS FOR SWEET ENCHANTING EASTER TABLE DECORATIONS
I’ve set a pastel Easter table setting, with vibrant tones, to give you inspiration for your own Easter celebration. A little unusual for me, I stayed pretty traditional to Easter with the table setting but added a modern accent with the floral chandelier wreath full of color and romantic style.
Although we usually have holiday meals in our dining room, Easter is typically more of a brunch for us – our breakfast area is lovely for that, with all kinds of natural light!
FLORAL CHANDELIER WREATH
The pendant light above our table is precisely right for this look, with its graceful arms and I love how the wreath sits just below the shade, letting a little light peek out between, highlighting the blooms.
Spring to me is all about color as everything comes alive – reds, blues, corals, yellows, and pinks all blend with teardrop greenery.
The floral wreath is such an easy project that makes a huge impact! A floral chandelier wreath is lovely for any gathering where you want to add a bit of romance. I’ll be posting instructions on how you can make one tomorrow – be sure to drop by for that!
Because of the grandiose nature of the wreath above the table, I kept the centerpiece simple. A paper mache bunny of white with a gold nose is surrounded by fresh blooms from my garden and a myriad of decorated eggs – some ornate, some simple.
THE TABLE COVERINGS
I went with a natural table and a buffalo check table runner made from my napkin stash. I love how the blue adds a punch of color to the otherwise simple table covering and highlights the blues in the floral wreath.
THE PLACE SETTINGS
The settings are kept simple to not take away from the real stars of the table – the flowers.
You may recognize my DIY Painted-Pink dinner plates from our Christmas table. I’m still madly in love with them and have found them surprisingly versatile. Of course, in writing this I’ve realized that I’ve yet to share a tutorial on how I made them – I’m on it!
Simple white salad plates crown the pink dinnerware.
Tissue paper Egg Stands and decorative eggs are lovely for place markers. Get the tutorial here.
Royal blue napkins and vintage handkerchiefs tied with a tulle bow accented with a pretty butterfly clip complete the setting.
We haven’t decided what we’ll be serving for brunch, but it will include refreshing fresh lemonade with lemon slices in tall glasses.
And, of course, no Easter celebration is complete without hot cross buns!
I can’t wait for Easter and the feeling of a new beginning that comes along with it. But mostly, I look forward to spending time with and making memories with my family.
Happy Easter and many thanks to Chloe at Celebrate & Decorate for organizing such a fun blog hop – always one of my favorite collaborations! Don’t forget to visit the other contributors – prepare to be wowed!
