Welcome to this season’s Styled + Set Blog Tour: Easter Entertaining! This is my second time joining this wonderful tour hosted by Lory of Designthusiasm (the first was this Valentine’s Day table), and I could not be more thrilled! The Easter tour features 30 bloggers sharing entertaining ideas and this month is all about Easter. If you are coming here from My Soulful Home, thank you! I’m so glad you’ve stopped by!
As I usually do, I started with my themed plates and I let those set the stage for the rest of the table. This time, I’m using salad/dessert plates from Pottery Barn and boy are they cute! These are from a couple of years ago, and at the time, they were selling out like crazy! I think I went to about 4 different stores just to get what I needed! I have the plates in 4 different shades, but for this table, I decided to just use the purple. Unfortunately, they are no longer available from PB, but you can still find them on Ebay. They were that popular!
Last week I found some purple hyacinth in my local Ralph’s and once I got it into my head to use those, I was off and running! Of course, life sometimes has different things planned! When I went back to get the hyacinth, they were all sold out. No worries. I just used some pretty purple tulips instead! For the centerpiece, I simply added the tulips to this Pottery Barn metal basket that I already owned, and filled it in with some moss.
I adore purple and green together, so that was the palette I decided to go with. After using a basic white tablecloth as the backdrop, I added my flax colored linen runner from Williams Sonoma, and layered that with another lavender runner I found at Home Goods. Pale sage green napkins rounded out the table.
I also added a couple of nests that happened to be mostly green with some purple accents. I think I mentioned before that I love eggs and nests for spring, so I have quite a few!
The candlesticks are vintage and are part of an old railing of some sort. I had my husband hollow out the tops so that I could use them as candleholders! I love their chippy finish and how they add character to a table where everything else is new.
You might have seen this new-to-me vintage French zinc bucket on my spring kitchen post where I had it filled with tulips. Since I already had tulips on the table, I used white hydrangeas. Luckily, it looks good with anything I put in it! The bunnies are from Home Goods and I’ve filled them with faux eggs from Pottery Barn.
