With Easter just around the corner, I thought I’d share a couple of tablescape ideas. Do you have any Easter traditions? I usually cook an Easter dinner and have my parents over. This year, since my SIL’s family and my in-laws moved in right across the street, we will have both sides of our families together for dinner. We haven’t worked out the details yet but I’ve been brainstorming some ideas.
Today, I’m sharing this tablescape I created using my antique Currier and Ives plates. I set them on top of a woven placemat, charger and used a buffalo checkered napkin folded in between. I created two place settings to give you an idea.
Gold flatware and gold wine glasses add a formal vibe. The gold wine glasses were a gift from my brother bought from Marshalls. If you aren’t a wine drinker, water or spritzer would be so pretty in these glasses.
A small vases of hydrangeas makes a great, simple centerpiece. I have been loving these plates that my husband got for me last Christmas. Some people may think grannyware but I love them so much. They have a casual, classic elegance to them and they are super versatile as they can transition from formal to casual dining. They are also easy maintenance so I know they’ll last a long time. I imagine passing these down to my kids one day.
Jimmy also got the buffalo check napkins for me when we ate at our favorite seafood restaurant in Myrtle Beach called Captain George’s. After dinner as we were walking out, we entered into their gift shop and they had some of the most amazing home decor. The restaurant decided to shut down the home decor section of the gift shop so luckily, we picked up these napkins for a couple of bucks each. I love anything blue and buffalo checked so these were perfect.
I didn’t even have to use a table cover because I loved the way the setting looked against the dark tabletop. Remember when I painted this table last year? Last month, I gave it another couple of coats since the kids had made a ton of marks on it. They do a lot of crafting and homework here so it gets used and abused quite a bit!
Do you eat anything special for Easter? I’ll be back to share another Easter inspired tablescape soon!
