Until this house with our fixed up formal dining room… I NEVER talked about a “tablescape”. Now… I regularly channel my inner Eddie Ross and I LOVE it. If you’re hopping over from the amazing Shine Your Light… you should know right off the bat, that I’m not *nearly* as kind and wonderful as Lisa. But I set a lush Easter table, so WELCOME!
Lush and Lovely Easter Tablescape
Here’s my tablescape disclaimer… I’m a maximalist. I love mixing and matching and bringing in lots of plants. And this Easter table is NO exception. I started with the color scheme from the rest of the spring tour (corals and greeny aqua) and then I kept adding layers.
The place setting is a fun combination of the old and the new. I have my great-aunt’s GORGEOUS formal china and have paired it with a $.99 Ikea white bowl. I honestly can’t remember where the blue glasses are from… they’re similar to these ones (affiliate link). The rose glasses are these votives from Luna Bazaar, and the lucite silverware…. etsy.
I shared the tutorial to those sweet marbleized Easter Egg place card holders last week. And when I saw those glittered carrot treat boxes at Marshalls, well they’re getting filled with jelly beans for Easter!
My favorite detail of the place setting might just be those adorable rabbit ear napkin rings. Not only are they my color of the spring, blush pink, but they’re also cute without being cutesy if that makes any sense!
Moving onto the centerpiece… my design process with a centerpiece is basically pile up all the stuff that I like within my theme. For this table, that meant plants and pastels! I piled a bunch of my faux airplants into thrifted copper glass boxes and then added speckled eggs and some real air plants (affiliate).
The sideboard is similarly lush with an assortment of aqua glass and more spring flowers. Most of that glassware is thrifted but… these are some almost identical options (affiliate): here, here and here.
Did I mention I LOVE macarons? They come in the prettiest of colors and are a favorite of mine when entertaining or hosting a special occasion!
In case you want to see it ‘real time’… here’s a video of the space:

But wait… there’s more! Head on over to my friend Brenna’s to see what amazing table scape she’s cooked up. Brenna actually COOKS so you can bet her table will be spectacular! (You’ll noticed at no point did I mention what I would be *serving* for Easter lunch… that’s still TBD and possibly involving grilled cheese.) And while you’re at it… here are all the other lovely tablescapes being shared today!
