Easter Table setting

5 Ways to set a Perfect Tablescape this Easter

1. Start with a runner that compliments your color scheme.
 Since I have such a dark wood, I used a runner I made with orange, gold, and green. 
It sets the tone and softens your table.

2. Find a floral arrangement that will add height and draw the eye up.
I chose green hydrangeas with lavender and cattail spruces. The white vase is a 
beautiful contrast while incorporating the plates.

3. Add items with various heights and colors to dance along your table runner.

I chose two of these votive holders found at pier one. 

The blue Fenton Glass piece is from my grandmother. And the sweet chicky
 is a salt and pepper shaker.

This carrot bowl holds the all important jelly beans or favorite Easter candy.

4. Let your family get involved. 
I had my kids Paint Easter eggs to add to the centerpiece.
I love when a home can reflect those living there and not just a favorite store. 

This time we used plastic eggs because they smell better and we have so many. 

5. Make your linens work the table.
A special table setting has a story on the plate. It could be place setters or 
layers of linens between plates. For this table I chose to make  a bunny ears napkin. 

This is the tutorial I used to make them.

I hope this inspires you to create your own Easter Table scape. And no, that is not a bunny in the corner, just my fat cat, Bob.  He is just enjoying the peaceful spring surroundings.
