Happy Monday to you! Today is a special post as this is my first holiday tour of the season! I’m joining six other amazing bloggers to bring you a French Christmas Tour, hosted by my friend Lory of Designthusiasm. Many of the bloggers I’m joining today are people I was reading before I even started a blog. They are immensely talented, with gorgeous photography and styling, so be sure to scroll to the bottom and visit all of their posts!
The other day I realized I had been so busy all summer that I hadn’t done a tablescape since July 4th! I do usually like to toy around with tablescape ideas at least a couple of times a month. Not only for fun, but also so that when we entertain I have something prepared beforehand. I adore doing them; it’s kind of a fun, creative outlet for me. If you love them too, be sure to check out my free e-book with twelve pretty and easy tables – one for each month of the year!
When I posted my Memorial Day table last month I had mentioned that I would like to try something a little different for my Independence Day tablescape. Though I did end up changing it up a little more than I planned (I didn’t want to bore everyone)! If you love tablescapes as much as I do and are looking for more inspiration, check out my free e-book featuring twelve of my favorites!
Every year I bring out the red, white, and blue decorations right before Memorial Day, and I usually keep them out through July 4th. I treat the whole month as a “patriotic” season! Also, since we usually have people over for one or the other of these holidays, I wanted to put together a patriotic tablescape that could work for either one. I love doing tablescapes and I know a lot of you do, too, so I compiled a new free e-book with twelve of my favorites (including sources and lots of tips and tricks!)
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. So today I’m sharing my classic Easter tablescape! I’ve also got lots of spring and Easter tablescapes in my new free e-book! In fact, it includes twelve of my favorites!
I know Easter and spring tablescapes traditionally use soft pastels and sweet colors, and I love those, but this year I really wanted to do a neutral Easter table. Then when I found some white embossed bunny plates, 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 for that) but I do love the change of pace!
