It happened again, I saw some dishes and that was it, another tablescape was hatched! I always think of pretty pastels for Easter, but these beautiful square salad plates I spotted at Home Goods called to me. I don’t know what it was about these dishes, I don’t usually like square plates, but it was the image, the little rabbit that looks like he is just hiding beneath the flowers, with the butterfly fluttering above. There is pale yellow which along with the green and shades of brown became my color palette for this natural tablescape. I find this so calm and restful compared to the bright colors I first think of for Easter.
After I chose these dishes, the rest of my table came together very quickly and easily. I had this natural fiber tablecloth that looks like it is burlap, but it isn’t. I then added these large white candle trays I picked up months ago at Ikea. They were so inexpensive and so unique that I knew I would use them again and again. I topped those with burlap chargers I got at Hobby Lobby. The pretty creamy yellow plates are from Home Goods, also.
I selected dark brown cloth napkins for a nice contrast while still staying in the same neutral color family. I purchased the yellow wine glasses years ago and paired them with clear crystal water glasses.
A watering can I used for my daughter’s Peter Rabbit themed baby shower seemed like a natural for the center of the table. I just added some pale yellow artificial forsythia, a couple of natural nests with pale brown and yellow eggs and of course, a timid little rabbit. I hope Mr. McGregor of Peter Rabbit fame doesn’t find him hiding near the watering can!
This was a relatively easy tablescape to create and I think it will let the food take center stage for an Easter dinner. I would never have dreamed I would have been so happy with a tablescape for Springtime with such a little bit of color, but I am thrilled with the final result! Maybe you will decide to design a more natural tablescape for an upcoming holiday. Happy Spring and Happy Easter!
