Have you been busy preparing for Easter this year? It seems hard to believe that Easter is only a week away since it was only last week that it was the first of the year, right?!
Last year, Easter almost seemed nonexistent with Covid and all of the lockdowns. I am so thankful that this year we get to go to church for services and gather together as a family. I pray that you will be able to do the same.
I kept our dinner table kind of simple this year. We won’t have a large gathering. In fact, it will only be three of us, but that’s okay. Your table should be pretty and special even if it is just for a few people!
I started with a color theme. Green always evokes thoughts of spring to me, and this year I paired it with blue. Blue and green are pretty traditional, but I added some touches of whimsy just to lighten things up a bit and to keep it fun!
I started with this blue and white checked tablecloth. It is from Amazon and you can find it here.
I used lots of different textures on the tablescape including at each place setting. I used a round rattan place mat and a galvanized charger. Then I pulled out my trusty mix matched white dishes. These get a work out, and I HIGHLY recommend that you invest in some white dishes. They are so versatile!
These blue and white salad plates came from a local specialty shop several years ago. Unfortunately they are not available anymore.
I then layered a mini tobacco basket that came from Hobby Lobby. They only get these in once a year when their spring/Easter décor comes out. Grab them while you can, because they well out fast!
I used green and white gingham napkins that I made a few years ago. If you can’t find the kind of napkins that you want, don’t be afraid to try to make some yourself!
This particular napkin fold is so easy! I show you how later down in this post along with another fun bunny napkin fold.
I just used plain white plastic eggs, but you could also use fun colored eggs that the kids made!
You could also add a fun name tag to the twine or ribbon on the napkin. They would make perfect place cards!
The centerpiece was so easy! I just used a galvanized tray that I already had. I used an extra large glass cookie jar and layered another smaller glass container in the middle of it. That allowed me to line up the fabric bunnies between the two layers of glass. Then the dogwood stems and other floral stems were placed down in the middle of the inner glass container.
The last element was the moss. I purchased a large box of moss from Amazon a couple of years ago for a baby shower that I was hosting. That box of moss was a great investment, and I have used it for so many things!
There you have it. My Easter table this year!
