Easter isn’t only for pastels, bunnies and egg hunts. This year, I’ve decided to decorate my spring table with patterns on top of prints, vibrant blooms and contrasting dinnerware. I’m celebrating design, ornamentation and juxtaposition… and doing it with Easter whimsy!
To get the look:
Pick a fun, colorful (but not brilliant) tablecloth. MUST have a pattern.
Layer patterned placemats on top of the tablecloth. In order for the setting to remain cohesive, try to keep the color palette similar – I kept with the blues and whites.
Add your dinnerware. In true CSL nature, I layered patterned plates on top of each other and used two different colored glassware.
Napkins: I have these bright pink and orange woodblock printed napkins that I thought would tie in the pinks from the ikat plates as well as the flowers. Simply folded and rolled in white napkin rings, et voila!
To complement the napkins, I visited the flower market to pick up the best of early-spring harvest. The center bouquet and bud vases are composed of green and pink ranunculus, white-fringed tulips, pink parrot tulips, and green viburnum.
Fine, I don’t have bunnies or chicks grazing the table (no pun intended), but I couldn’t resist some colorful chocolate eggs! I put an egg on each plate and then added the remaining into silver bowls.
Add some whimsy, a kaleidoscope of patterns and colors and some personal touches to your Easter table this year!
