An Easter Table with Bright Colors
I have always loved color and have never shied away from using it in my home.
Having quite the collection of dishes, glassware, chargers, tablerunners etc., I always try to use what I have. I believe mixing and matching patterns make the prettiest tables! So if you don’t have enough of one color or pattern, use something that will compliment the majority.
“Easter is a time to rejoice, be thankful, be assured that all is forgiven, so life extends beyond the soil of the earth.” – Byron Pulsifer
Sometimes I have a theme in my mind and know precisely how I want things to look. Sometimes, I pick a piece from my collection, start with that and build from there.
That’s exactly what I did for this colorful Easter table setting.
Easter is usually synoymous with pastels, however, I had yet to use this fabulous table runner I previously bought on clearance. I paired it with this beautifully bright colored melamine platter from my collection and instantly knew it was what I wanted to use.
Do you ever have that happen? You just know when you see something that it was meant to be!
Next, I added one of my pretty white pitchers to the center. I was going to use some cherry blossom stems but the color was obviously all wrong with my platter. Therefore I opted for these faux branches I recently purchased. They’re inexpensive and perfect for a spring arrangement! I’ve linked them below just in case you love them as much as me!
The Place Settings
Due to the fact that my centerpiece was so colorful I wanted my place settings to be more neutral.
Using burlap chargers with my cream colored dishes was the perfect neutral. Remember, just because you use a neutral dish doesn’t mean you can’t add color with the napkins. I paired my blue and white striped napkins between the charger and dinner plate with a simple green and white polka dot ribbon around the silverware.
Polka dots and strips together! What’s not to love!?
My love for dishes doesn’t stop there. I equally love pretty glasses and stemware. I have collected so many pieces over the years. My collection comes from many different places. You don’t have to spend a lot to get a pretty set. I have gotten mine at vintage sales, thrift stores, friends who have wanted to part with what they have, and many came from my mother before she moved.
Because I used the melamine platter, I thought the blue melamine glasses paired well!
Decor for the Colorful Easter Table
Once I get the core to my table complete, I love adding corresponding decor.
Did you see my post How to Decoupage Pretty Wooden Easter Eggs? Last year, I bought some wooden Easter eggs that were unfinished. I decided to decoupage them with some pretty cocktail napkins I had from previous events. I love the way they turned out and think they work great on my bright colored table.
Do you ever shop the Target dollar spot? If so, you may have seen these cute moss covered bunnies. I grabbed these as soon as I saw them and the bright green works on the table as well.
Candlesticks are always a great addition to any table setting. I purchased these at a local Michigan home decor shop and I have used them over and over. I never get tired of them. If you don’t have any candlesticks, it is one of the items I think is a great investment for your home decor.
Last, I added my set of brightly covered cream and sugar containers and a green ceramic cabbage that my dear aunt made. A treasure to have for sure!
There is also one more item I like to change with the seasons. I have a two side chairs at the end of my farm table. Keeping a decorate pillow on them gives the table a more formal look. Adding some light blue pillow covers with chenile trim and fun tassels gives the table a updated spring vibe.
