I’ve never done two tablescapes in one season before, however, though I loved my neutral Easter table I played around with last week, I knew I would probably want to do something a little more traditional for the actual holiday. We are hosting Easter brunch this year, and because there will be kids, grandparents, and the like here, the more typical pastels are playing a part. Of course, I did put my own spin on it! I love the “earthier” pastels and that’s what I played off of. I used some of the items from the table from last week, but then I let the Pottery Barn bunny plates set the tone, and I went from there.
I know Easter and Spring tablescapes traditionally use soft pastels and sweet colors, and I love those, but I really wanted to do a Spring tablescape using only whites and neutrals. Then when I found some white embossed plates with bunnies on them, I knew it was meant to be! I’ve used whites, soft neutrals, greys, and silver and I love the way it turned out. I’m not sure if I will use this for our actual Easter brunch (I may go with the more traditional pastels) but I do love the change of pace. I also used white eggs, and I associate that freshness and crispness with the “newness” of Spring as well. I think it works!
I wanted to do something different for Thanksgiving this year, so I’ve been playing around with tablescapes this week to see what I could come up with. I really loved the neutral one I did a few weeks ago (see post here), but I wanted to use my turkey plates, so I needed to do something with a little more color. The plates have browns, cream, rust, and greens so I concentrated on the browns and greens and went from there.
Are you all getting ready for Thanksgiving and all the fall festivities? Fall is my favorite season and I love doing tablescapes this time of year! For that reason, I thought I’d share a fall tablescape that I did a couple of weeks ago for a dinner party. At the time, it was before Halloween, and pretty far from Thanksgiving, so I didn’t want to go with a lot of traditional fall colors. I wanted to do mostly creams and neutrals, while still having it feel like fall.
Well, regardless of the fact that it is way too hot here in Southern California in October, I have fall on the brain! I starting buying white pumpkins and putting them around the house at the beginning of September. And I usually put out what Halloween I have around the 1st of October. This week I decided to work on some tablescapes for fall, either to use for a dinner party or even for Thanksgiving.
