I have something a little different for you today! I typically live in a world of blush and rose gold world (just check out my blush vintage Easter tablescape… or the pink floral table I did for summer!) but today I have a simple spring tablescape with a few reds, blues and greens… a more traditional Easter color palette!
It’s actually my Mama’s Easter table… so you’ll see a bit more of her warm wood tones and green bunnies. Plus her Henn Spongeware… take a peek!
Ready for the full breakdown?
The inspiration for this table were the rabbit patch salad plates by Shafford… Mom fell in love with them! Since they have little red radishes and the carrots have a blue/gray hint to them we figured they would pair beautifully with her rose and blue spongeware by Henn.
Luckily we were right!
She added her botanical collection chargers to the bottom stack and it looks beautiful! She’s had these chargers for years (in the spring, summer, fall and winter patterns but hasn’t used them. This was the perfect excuse to bring the spring chargers out and add them to our Easter table!
- Rabbit Patch Salad Plates by Shafford (they’re also available here and here)
- Rose and Blue Spongeware Dinner Plates by Henn (I’ve also found them here)
- “Grandma Henn’s Flower Basket” Chargers in the Botanical Collection by Henn
- Beige Woven Placemat
- Rose Stripe Napkin with Fringe
- Beaded Carved Wood Lazy Susan by Mud Pie
- Water Goblet American Blue by Avon (I’ve also found them here and here from time to time)
- Roseland by Reed & Barton (Flatware)
- Rose Spongeware Salt and Pepper Shaker by Henn
- Blue Knife Rests from Hungary (bought at an antique shop, I found several online here!)
- Mossy Standing Bunny and Mossy Sitting Bunny (I’ve found similar ones here)
- Shafford Rabbit Patch Sugar & Creamer (you can also find find them here)
- Corner Ruby Easter Bunny/Cabbage Ceramic Salt & Pepper Shakers
Once you pick your plates the rest starts to fall into place: we picked a set of rose striped napkins to help pull in the red from the plates and these blue wine glasses by Fostoria (to pull in the blue!).
Then it’s on to the basics: place-mats and flatware! Mom loves this Roseland by Reed & Barton flatware since it’s perfect for casual (or formal) dining. It’s delicate and universal… and the little rose pattern is just darling.
The placemats were also a pretty easy choice… these beige placements are a nice neutral that really let the place setting shine. Easy choice!
Ready for the centerpiece?
This little centerpieces is pretty easy… I pulled out a fun lazy susan I used for Christmas decorating this year and used it as the base. I love a lazy susan on a small table because everyone at the table can easily access everything in the middle.
I added the little salt and pepper shakers we found at Homegoods to match this set and the tiny sugar dish on the other side… then I tucked a few mossy bunnies under the floral centerpiece and called it a day.
Sometimes less is more!
Last but not least I pulled out 4 of my blue knife rests and used them with our flatware. They’re the same ones I used on my vintage blush tablescape (I have them in blue, pink and green!) and I love to use them on as many tablescapes as possible. They’re just such a fun conversation starter… plus the blue glass gives the table a little something extra.
Which is what I’m always looking for!
Don’t you love how this table turned out? Its’ sweet enough for Sunday brunch all month long!
