Easter is so late this year, that it has almost gotten by me unnoticed. I was setting a table for something festive, when I realized I had used all these same things in exactly the same way before. It was this table, from 2021, and I did it without realizing it until it was finished, and it looked familiar. So I looked up some of my previous Easter tables, and there it was, right down to the exact same arrangement in the center using the same silk flowers pulled from my stash, same napkin rings, everything except the green fabric. Well, that just won’t do.
Seriously! Here it is, the only difference was the addition of the Irish Coffee mugs, a dish for dessert on the side, and a green placemat instead of a green fabric under the centerpiece.
That led to a trip down Tablescape Lane, so I could refresh my memory. This one, Gardening Rabbits from 2019 had the same pink plates, with a little wheelbarrow and the rabbits with garden tools. I had some placecard holder vases holding fresh blooms from the garden and name cards. The napkin rings are watering cans.
The best Easter theme I’ve ever done was this one for Easter 2017. These egg plates were fun, and the rabbit crackers were a perfect accessory. I don’t have those plates anymore.
OK, so let’s get back to this year. I left the green chargers, white dinner plates and crystal glasses.
The centerpiece is now a cute yellow basket with rabbits on the side. I filled it with silk greenery, white tulips and geraniums, with some silk daffodils.
The rabbits are only on one side, so I placed some rabbits around the other three sides.
The place settings have spring green chargers topped with white dinner plates and pink depression glass bowls for salad. The little porcelain dishes have pink and green decorations, perfect size for ice cream. The butterfly napkin rings were changed to yellow flower pots. Everyday flatware completes the setting.
I left the Irish Coffee mugs too, after all, hot coffee goes great with ice cream, especially if there is cake, too. Or maybe brownies? Crystal water glasses are on the right. Of course, my individual salt and pepper shakers are at each place, too.
I can add some eggs for an Easter table, and the rabbits will carry us through spring.
Are you setting a spring table?
