If you haven't planned your Easter tablesetting you still have plenty of time to pull it together. This is how I start!..
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.
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.
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!!
- Tablecloth.... black, white, or black and white checked
- Dishes... All white
- Glassware.... clear goblets
- 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!
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.
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.
Matthew Mead did a beautiful combination of all white and this little guy was among his elements..
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.
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.......
- Black , white or checked cloth
- White napkins
- White dishes
- Clear goblets
- Big white Bunny boy with soft pink flowers in his basket
- Soft pink bunny silhouette with white carnation as tail on top of napkin
- White egg cup with soft pink tulip holding a white egg with guest name in black at each place setting.
- Clear glass votives with soft pink votive candles or plain white.
- Pink and White M&M's sprinkled on table
I think I am set, or at least my table will be set!
