Hello there, friends!  This week has been busy as we prepare to host family and friends this weekend for Easter.  I set our table yesterday and wanted to share it with you.  This year I made our more formal Easter tablescape very simple, and kept things extra easy by picking up the flowers for the centerpiece at the grocery store.

I wanted all of the focus to be on the colorful fresh flowers lined up down the center, so I didn't add in a lot of extras this time.  Just the basics, and I'm happy with the clean, crisp feel yet it's not short on color!

This look would be very easy to replicate-
*Fold a tablecloth to use as a runner.  An alternative would be to use a length of fabric, just press the raw edges under.  You could even use my favorite wrapping paper runner trick!

*Gather a group of similar vases (odd numbers look best) to line the center of the table.  If you don't have any on hand, thrift stores or the dollar store are great resources, you can spray paint random vases to all have the same color, or even using old bottles or jars with the labels removed would work.

*Hit the grocery store for a few bunches of mixed flowers.  Just a couple will go a long way, especially if you also buy a greenery filler bunch to spread out or use green clippings from your yard.

*Stack plates on a charger or round placemat and you're done!  I almost did an all white stack to keep my look even more simple, but at the last minute added in my Imperial Leaf plates.  Vintage battenburg lace napkins and monogrammed silver napkin rings from an estate sale finish things off.  Every Easter I pull out my darling lamb salt cellars that were actually from the same estate sale in my neighborhood, that was a good one!

We should have 10 adults for dinner, so I'll add the last leaf and a few more chairs and we'll all be able to be seated here.  I'm loving my new table!  We'll let the 7 (teenager) kids that will be here sit together in the Breakfast Nook.  I hope to get it set today or tomorrow morning and will snap a pic or two and add it to this post.

  1. Beautiful! People must love being entertained in your home. I'm curious about the lovely napkin rings you scored at a yard the monogram of your last name? ( I can't make it out).
    Blessed Easter.
