Plans For This Years Easter Table In Our New Home

   




If you haven't planned your Easter tablesetting you still have plenty of time to pull it together. This is how I start!..

easter:

FIRST: I look around on pinterest pinning different images that I am attracted to.  I also look at the pins I have pinned from the past. At this point I am looking at color schemes and elements that I like.

I almost always start with a color scheme, I find it helps give me a direction or jumping off point.


Masako Kubo:

Here is a collection of images that caught my eye that helped me lean towards this years color scheme.......



If I were younger I would SO wear this!!


I really love the simplicity of this vignette and the flowers are perfection.


peach & gold & stripes:

   
pink, gold and black-white chevron for a little edge...would also pair perfectly with Mikasa's black-white-gold chevron plates {Confetti Pop}:

Shay Cochrane / #styling #productstyling:



I would imagine you have figured out my color scheme by now!

Black and white with soft pink!!

The next thing I have to decide are the elements that I will use.



First I always shop my home!!


  1. Tablecloth.... black, white, or black and white checked
  2. Dishes... All white
  3. Glassware.... clear goblets
  4. Napkins.... All white
 
Now for the center piece!!
 
I have a darling white bunny that I have used in years past....
 
 
This is the year that I did a soft blue and white color scheme. Mr. Bunny Boy is quite tall, and  he makes a nice statement!

The next step is to incorporate other elements that will tie in with the color scheme, and the main star Mr. Bunny boy!

Egg Hunt Can:

When choosing elements I look for ideas around the internet, and then I  choose a few that will work nicely with the overall look. I find that choosing 3 elements is an easy formula to follow, and that way your table will not look like a  hot mess once it is done. Too many elements will make for a busy look.

 just the bee's knees: Free Easter Watercolor Printables! This would even be cute in a little girls room too.:

Choose one star and then supporting actors for the stage you are about to create.

I  pinned a some ideas a couple of years ago that I loved, and this is the year I will use them.

Chocolate vertical birthday cake with raspberry mascarpone frosting:


Matthew Mead did a beautiful combination of all white and this little guy was among his elements..

Easter menu - bunny printable can be used for decor too.:

I just loved this idea and I will be using this on my table this year and tweak it a bit to go with my over all look.

You can see I am still staying within the bunny theme, and now I have introduced one of the flower choices I will be using. 

Next I saw this idea and it inspired me as well........

  :

When I saw this I immediately thought of my little white egg cups that I already have. Sooooo I bought artificial pink tulips that I will put in an egg cup and I am taking it one step further and adding an egg to the inside of the tulip. 

 Color-coding dots from office supply stores made the polka dots. Get the complete instructions. #Easter:

Since Mr. Bunny boy is tall and thin I will add votive candles around him and I plan on sprinkling pink and white M&M's on the table, fun, festive and a little treat my guest can nibble on too.

So there you have it!! My Easter Table Plan for this year. Let's go over all the elements.......

  1. Black , white or checked cloth
  2. White napkins
  3. White dishes
  4. Clear goblets
  5. Big white Bunny boy with soft pink flowers in his basket
  6. Soft pink bunny silhouette with white carnation as tail on top of napkin
  7. White egg cup with soft pink tulip holding a white egg with guest name in black at each place setting.
  8.  Clear glass votives with soft pink votive candles or plain white.
  9. Pink and White M&M's sprinkled on table
 
I think I am set, or at least my table will be set!

Fabulous ideas my friend. I too consult my Pinterest pins to finally put something with my own stuff together.
I'm sharing my Easter table already and the centerpiece with cloches is similar to what I had loved for this year. Can't wait to see what you come with for a tablescape for Easter.
Have a great Easter Sunday.

Love the idea of the soft pink with black and white. I could easily pull off this look using my Courtly Check and pink accents. Not happening this year as I've already gone with yellow and gold as my accent color with the black and white Courtly Check. Think lots of daffodils on the table. '-)

I hope you show us how it all turns out. I bet it will be adorable.
I'm actually all set for Easter. Can you believe it? Ha! And Goodwill is now the owner of half of my stuff. So it will be easier to pack up after the holiday is over.
