Hippity Hop Over to Set Your Easter Table
Hi Friends! With the freeze-thawing and Springtime peeping through, the uplifting feel of new-birth and good things to come is getting me in the mood to set my Easter table! Typically I post the previous year’s tablescape but with Covid in full force last April, our family and did not gather but instead participated in a virtual jump to Church! I am excited to share this year’s quest to find that perfect table setting!
I love the color pink! Although tempting, I already have lots of dishware and instead became obsessed with some flocked bunnies and peeps I saw at a client’s house.
Did you know Historians write that flocking can be traced back to circa 1000 B.C.E., when the Chinese used resin glue to bond natural fibers to fabrics? Fiber dust was strewn onto adhesive-coated surfaces to produce flocked wall coverings in Germany during the Middle Ages! –Wikipedia
So cute and in different sizes, my search began and sadly ended quickly! They were either sold out, wouldn’t ship by Easter or were not in the color scheme I was looking for! Ugggggg! So…. my friend Google led me in another direction!
Moss-covered bunnies! These also were selling out fast. I found them on Etsy and on Amazon in so many different sizes and shapes. Note: most look bigger than they are and are listed in centimeters. Be sure to convert to inches to ensure you are getting the sizes you want.
I took my cute moss bunny to work one day! She loved this pink and gold chest which is a childhood set of a homeowners which we refinished to go in her daughter’s room!! All it needs is the new hardware installed!!
With lots of time at night at home during Christmas and New Years’, I had re-discovered eBay! Wow-what you can find for such reasonable prices especially if you like vintage. I found this retired Lenox Morning Blossom China pattern and fell in love. With so many colors it could fit any style of table décor depending on what it’s mixed with. I also picked up 8 of these Kim Seybert gold beaded Easter egg napkin rings for 30$ plus shipping-close to what two would sell for a retail store. Since, I have seen them with a blue/green flower. They have many to choose from, just search Easter napkin rings.
Wanting to play up the garden feel I purchased these chargers/placemats from Etsy. Tip: when searching, look at the diameter! In order to use it as a placemat you need 14″-15″. They do shed a bit and can curl up on the sides so they need to be stored flat!
Although I had purchased the Lenox china over Christmas, I wasn’t sure if I was going to use those or something different I have. I always take things out and play! The flatware from Neiman Marcus is on sale now! The Tahari BUNNY EAR napkin rings were found on eBay ranging in price from 25$ to $36 for a set of 4.
Want a bit of color? Change the napkins! These are Juliska Heirloom Linen Napkin, Ice Blue.
Bunnies anyone. These Spode Meadow Lane salad plates are from Macy’s. I just checked and they are on sale now!
Same plates, different look! Tip: If you are not registered on Rakuten sign up. I have gotten 2-10% cashback from purchases on most sites. The napkins are Kate Spade Harbour Drive Gold and the plates are Arte Italica. This color has been discontinued but I have seen them on replacement sites.
I decided to go with the Lenox plates. Now the glasses? Pink and pink? Or…..
Or both? I really wanted to use my Mom’s vintage glasses which she gifted to my daughter when she downsized. Lucky me gets to store them for her so why not use them! I felt to make them work I needed pops of the vibrant pink in the florals. With Easter a week away, I didn’t want to get my fresh flowers early so I used these tulip Martha Stewart Valentine’s napkin rings. On sale, I purchased 12 for 22$. Real flowers this year?
With the bright pink I wondered if gold chargers would be a better fit? What do you think?
When I found these chocolate Lindt bunnies wrapped in gold (CVS Pharmacy buy one get one 50% off) the gold clashed so the light pink charges it will be!!
Well here is where I ended. I found out now we are going to Galveston for a bigger family gathering and don’t want to pack up and take with me. Maybe I will have a friends luncheon. Want to join? I hope you found some inspiration and helpful tips for your own table décor!
One of our new beginnings this year is out palette deck will be available soon!! A long time in the planning they should ship in about a month!! You will be able to see all of your name suggestions and cover help in print!!
Have a Happy Easter! I hope it is a fresh new start for us all!
For my friends celebrating Passover “chag Pesach samech.” Till next week! xo Leslie
