An Easter Tablescape

An Easter Tablescape

Good morning, sweet friends, and Happy Spring! This week, I am joining a group of very talented ladies for a Spring Tablescape Blog Hop hosted by the very sweet and talented Chloe at Celebrate and Decorate. Be sure and check out the other tables on the hop. There is lots of beautiful inspiration for your Spring and Easter entertaining.  You will find a schedule of all the participants posted below.

This year, I am so excited to be hosting Easter brunch at my house.  Nothing makes me happier than setting a pretty table and preparing delicious food for the ones I love. During Christmas and Thanksgiving, we travel to both my parents and in-laws for the holidays. While I do enjoy this time, there is just something special about getting to be the hostess and share the holiday in your home.

 

Every year, the Easter Bunny visits my house. While the kids are sleeping, he hides the eggs they dyed the night before and leaves special treats in their Easter Baskets.

 

A lace tablecloth is used for the underpinning.  For each place setting, I chose to use pink charger plates with Blue Italian Spode Plates.

I could not find pink charger plates at my local store. Therefore, I decoupaged inexpensive charger plates with pretty pink fabric I had on hand.

Blue and white French linens complete the look. I tied each napkin with a pink ribbon and tucked a sprig of Spring berries inside.

Each place setting is accented by my favorite American Fostoria glasses. The small glasses are filled with little chocolate covered Easter eggs so that each guest will have something to nibble on while they visit.

 

A sweet Easter Bunny graces the table with his presence and acts as the perfect centerpiece.

He brings along his wheelbarrow filled with blue and white eggs.

 

 

 

I hope that you have a Happy Spring, sweet friends. Thank you so much for visiting today. Have a wonderful day!!!

  1. Very lovely.

  2. Shannon, Your family is in for a treat visiting you for Easter. I love your bunny and wheelbarrow full of eggs as your centerpiece. What a cute idea to decoupage chargers to fit your theme as well as use the lovely pink ribbon as napkin rings repeating the pink from the bunny’s ribbon. You have used the design element of repetition and color so well.Texture makes your table intriguing too.
    That is the cutest wheelbarrow. I always enjoy your tables, Shannon.

  3. Shannon, what a thrill for you to host Easter with your family. Your table setting is gorgeous…Spode blue and white works anytime, anywhere! May I say I am swooning over your charger plates, they are so springy and pretty…love them. Your blue and white eggs with the Bunny as the centerpiece says Easter is on its way! Beautiful job and I would love to be a guest at your table!

  4. Shannon, what a beautiful Easter Tablescape!! I love the bunny & wheelbarrow filled with eggs! Your blue & pink scheme is so pretty!

  5. Happy Spring to you Shannon! You’re so smart and industrious to decoupage your chargers for your Easter table. I wouldn’t have thought to pair your blue Spode with the pink but it’s so pretty together and I love your blue and white eggs in your vine covered wheelbarrow!

  6. I adore your rabbit and wheelbarrow! What a charming centerpiece!! Brilliant idea to decoupage your chargers to get just what you wanted. The entire scene says come dine with us, and welcome spring.

  7. OH Shannon, this is too adorable! That bunny with his flower covered cart of blue and white eggs is just the best! And the decoupaged chargers, swoon! I just bought a bunch of decoupaging supplies yesterday and can’t wait to get started, don’t be surprised if I borrow this fabulous idea from you…The napkins are just delightful too. I know your family will enjoy this beautiful breath of spring table!

    • Thank you, Jenna, for such a sweet comment. I wish I would have invented decoupage. The possibilities are endless. I know whatever you make, it will be beautiful! It has been so much fun blog hopping with you! Happy Spring, sweet friend!!!

  8. Even though I have zero real blue and white in my decor, I absolutely love that classic look, Shannon. Your additions of the pink in the form of those decoupaged charges is brilliant! Love that bunny’s wagon on the tabletop with the blue & white eggs. You know, this tablescape could work really well for a spring baby shower too – not knowing the gender, but utilizing both pinks and blues. Very Springy!

  10. I love the blue & white and really love your bunny 🙂

  11. Shannon, you have opened up a world of possibilities for chargers. I need to buy stock in Modge-Podge! This table is beautiful and I love that you used placemats along with those lovely chargers. Your bunny sits regally on a table that your family is really going to enjoy. Happy Spring!

  12. What a sweet table. I just loved the bunny too.

  13. Love everything on your table…but please tell me about your beautiful pink plates that you decoupage for your chargers . I would love a tutorial on how you did it. Can those plates be washed? Inspirational!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Thank you, Rosie, for the sweet comment. For the charger plates, I used some inexpensive Wal-Mart charger plates. I had some cotton fabric on hand. I simply cut squares of fabric to fit each charger and decoupaged them to the plate. After they were dry, I trimmed away the excess fabric. They ones I made cannot be washed, but there may be something at the craft store that you could seal the fabric with to make them washable. I am just going to spot clean the ones I made. I hope this helps.

  14. What a stunning easter tablescape.I love your doted napkins and the pink bows.Everything is just beautiful.It was nice blog hoping with you!

  15. How cute is that bunny?! I am so so envious of your china set and matching candlesticks.
