5 Years Of My Easter Tables

  

I am like the rest of you in that I love to create. I like to try and create something different from what I have done in previous decor, or decorations for special holidays like Easter.

I thought I would review what I have done in the past five years in order to make sure I do something a wee bit different for this years Easter table.


One Easter I did an all white theme……………..

This was the centerpiece. Fresh spring green grass, real gerbera daisies and white roses. One more special little element that any good spring arrangement needs, sweet little porcelain birds.


The next year I chose to do a whimsical forest scene. I wanted the bunny to look like a huge chocolate bunny. I chose little chicks, mushrooms and clay pots full of chocolate eggs…………..

Bright pink, bright yellow and white were my color scheme for this year.


3 (640x480)
I chose to use things from my garden by using rocks, moss and real flowers from the garden.

The next year's table started with an inspiration from Anthropologie…….

I started with this darling ceramic robin egg blue egg holder, which I can use in my refrigerator after Easter to hold my eggs.

I already had the striped quilt that I used as a table cloth and I had the bright yellow plates from the year before. So it was settled, bright yellow and blue it will be.

Next I needed to decide  what elements  would work with this color scheme. First came the obvious, eggs, some kind of yellow and white flowers, and for greenery some wheat grass.

 Yes, that will work just fine. Here is the table setting I did ..........

Daffodils, Daisies and Moss!!

I have used an all white, a bright yellow and bright pink color scheme. Then I used bright yellow and robin’s egg blue as my color scheme for Easter.
 
 This years table was very bright sunflower yellow and green. I chose to use galvanized metal containers to hold moss and little yellow button flowers and white daisies.



Last year I went for a much softer look. I chose an ice blue table cloth and all white tulips and dishes.
 

 


This years Easter table will be different from all of the above. I am going to use ice pink and white.

I love this time of year and I always get exctied when I start seeing the fresh Spring green grass and all of the pink and white blossoms on the trees.
 
Have fun finding your own inspiration for your Easter table.

Kathy Sue, what fun to look back and see how different each one of your Easter tables were set. Each one is gorgeous. I adore white tulips, so I think the last one is my favorite. White tulips, white roses, and white hydrangeas are what I have in our home for Easter. Thanks for reaching back into your files to share these images with us. Happy Spring! ~ Sarah

Do you never stop thinking creatively? I just don't think its possible. How you keep coming up with such beautiful tablescapes year after year is beyond me. But I love the pictorial history and thanks so much for sharing. Can't wait to see this years.

Wow that's incredible. You go to so much trouble. We don't really make so much effort here in Oz like you do in the US, shame really because I'd love to make up an Easter lunch table as gorgeous as yours. I love the first one, with the grass and all the bunnies.

All your tables are beautiful Kathysue, love them all. I fell in love with that same yellow chevron fabric and made a runner for my kitchen island [posting tomorrow] and a slipcover [posting Thursday] !! I bought it in green too and made pillows for the den. I love color, so I loved all the bright elements in your tables! Happy Easter!

They are all so beautiful and so unique. I absolutely adore that garden one. It is so creative and makes me feel like you created a mini garden down the middle of the table. I"m looking forward to seeing your new one.
