It is no secret that setting a beautiful and inspired table is one of my favorite things to do. And in spring, with fresh green grass, the sound of birds singing and shades of pretty pastels popping up for celebrations — a beautiful Easter table setting to gather around outdoors is perfect.
Since most of what I love is on the softer side, I chose a color palette of soft blue, faded greens, and just a touch of peach and gold. I brought in a lot of texture with faded old book pages and fluffy cotton branches.
One of my favorite things to do with a table setting is to create a centerpiece that enchants and inspires conversation, and invites guests to lean in and take a closer look at the details. Whether it is flowers marching down the center or something a little different like these gorgeous cloches
filled with spring-inspired bits.
This trio was perfect in the center of the table, and each cloche has a different touch of spring. From a sweet little cement rabbit from the garden sitting atop a book page and wrapped in fresh eucalyptus…
… to a delicate little “nest” made out of some of the cotton picks
that I recently shared while making this wreath
In the center, a tall bouquet of beautiful ranunculus on a stack of vintage books was perfect.
I tucked a few dried hydrangeas on the sides as well for a touch of soft green.
The place settings are simple: barely blue dishes, gold flatware, and a mix of colorful springtime goblets in blues and blush.
And perhaps my favorite touch is the small gold glasses filled with pastel eggs. Another idea would be to fill them with Jordan almonds or even a pretty pastel-colored Easter egg atop shredded newspaper.
What about you, what is your favorite element to incorporate into an enchanted Easter table setting?
