So Many Choices So Little Time

In choosing a color scheme for Spring/Easter decor the color combinations are endless. I have narrowed my choices down to two possibilities this year. Pink and white or bright yellow and white.

In my searching and looking at other images I have saved in my files I found so many beautiful combinations. Since I am not going to use these combinations this year unless something drastically changes my mind(we creative types can be fickle little decorators) I thought I would share what I have found and maybe you might find something that inspires you.

Shall we begin"?!

This combination reminds me of orange sherbet icecream. Repetition of form and colors is so affective, don’t you think? This could be done in any color combination that you like.

Egg cups seem to be a Martha Stewart favorite for Easter.

This is just bright and fun. Simple ribbon wrapped around a plain square vase makes for a great base. I can see multiples of these running down a table with a mirror runner and lots of votive candles.

Instead of eggs as an element what about beautiful white shells with Spring flowers and moss.

I found this last year and it is still one of my favorites. I love the use of the wood element holding the eggs.

More egg cups from Martha with just little sprigs of grass. Now anyone could do this. How about putting guest names on the eggs and use these as place cards.

Nothing says spring like birds, so why not a bird cage. Notice the little nest in the corner.

I see jelly beans in my head when I look at these fun candle holders. I believe Pottery barn had these a few years back. An abundance of these going down the table as a runner with baskets of grass and brightly colored eggs inside would be so fun and festive.

It does not take a lot of money or flowers to make a festive table setting. Simple every day bowls full of brightly colored eggs make a fun centerpiece. If you don’t have a colorful table cloth just add some brightly colored ribbons.

My friend Eddie Ross showed how to make these amazing flower balls on his blog. They seem so simple to do and something fun to do with flowers other than putting them in a vase. Eddie is so clever and does some amazing table settings. Be sure and visit his blog HERE to learn how to make a beautiful flower globe. He is a wonderful teacher.

Simple cans spray painted soft pastels to hold flowers look so pretty here.

Purple, turquoise and pink make an interesting color combination.

An array of different ways to use eggs.

I really liked this color combination.

All different white vases with tightly made bouquets are so pretty.

Lavender and a soft green are so pretty together.
Do any of these color combinations give you any ideas for your own Easter table?
