Easter is here and I have some pretty spring and Easter table setting ideas here for you. Beautiful designs to inspire you.
Give me an excuse, any excuse, to design a table setting and I’ll take it. I’m all in. I learned this from my sweet Mama. Days out of a holiday, she would set a gorgeous table, tweaking here and there along the way. I loved watching her and took in all of her advice and ideas just like a sponge. All of her joy in designing a pretty table setting rubbed off on me, and here I am, never letting a table lay naked. Always dressed with a modern mix of plates and linens, with lots of play on patterns. Sometimes the table is just on display; still, it’s decorated one way or another, with Mama deep in my heart.
When a holiday rolls around, then it’s time to spiffy up my collar and add extra special touches. Like a placemat in the shape of a leaf, and a play on patterns that one wouldn’t necessarily think to pair together, but actually make a great match.
It’s no secret around here that I collect dishes, and even though I designed and built a Butler’s pantry to house the collection, the time has come that I need to tame my collection as room is limited. But it’s the thrill of the hunt at my favorite thrift stores, and it’s these stores where I find all the pretty table treasures. Affordability is a plus, too.
Entering spring and desperately trying to tame lingering winter, all the pinks, greens and extra pastels are so welcomed. Pink water goblets found on sale at Hobby Lobby, while the plates were found at good ol’ Goodwill, over time. If you have the space, it’s a collection and hoppy I truly recommend.
No need to limit yourself to just a holiday table setting. Mix and match and put patterns together just to see if they go. Step back. Guaranteed you’ll like what you see, even if you just pulled the look out of your hat. That’s the beauty of setting a pretty table.
Laissez faire is the name of the game. Don’t ever overthink a table setting. Go with the flow and use what you have. That’s the fun of it. As far as tablescapes are concerned, one styled to the nines can be just as elegant as one that is more simplistic. A gorgeous statement is made regardless. Mix and match.
I have a few more table setting here for you for inspiration.
