A Little of This & That… Renovating, Decorating, DIY Projects & Family

Easter is just a week away! It is a favorite holiday of mine for so many reasons… one of those being the significance of new life, the passage of winter to bright, fresh spring. It’s also a holiday that we celebrate with extended family. This year my aunt is pulling my Dad’s side together to spend time with my Grandma who is turning 85 and I’m really looking forward to it.

Speaking of fresh, spring colors, these tablescape ideas are right up my Easter brunch alley. Perhaps I’ll see if I can’t call dibs on hosting the egg hunt next year.

I love the muted coral, pinks and whites of this traditional table setting, and the sweet burlap, vintage jar and striped straw accents add thoughtful detail, as do the handwritten food labels.

An alternative and brighter Easter palette to play with includes pops of fuchsia, burgundy and pink. Love the hanging floral spheres below (craft your own inexpensively from foam balls covered in hot glued plastic hydrangea flowers and hung from thick ribbon – we used white for our wedding five years ago and the floral spheres were hung high enough that guests were none the wiser of the faux decor).

A tablescape featuring a long fabric runner in a solid color and a hodge podge of silver vases full of wild flowers is the perfect centerpiece – pull brightly colored accents (such as throw pillows, a mirror or candles) into an outdoor space to tie the theme together.

Both parties found right here at Style Me Pretty.

Here’s a nifty idea from Decor8′s contributing writer Leslie for incorporating pastel ribbons into an Easter tablescape. She suggests rummaging through your current supply to find unique ways to show off bits and pieces left over from other projects, including tying around vase stems or rolled napkins for breakfast.

And a grown-up Easter basket idea?

A box of trinkets, a favorite book or a boxed chocolate rabbit wrapped up in butcher block paper and tied in twine.

Happy Monday, and happy Easter preparations!

    I love all the ribbon ideas – my family’s keeping Easter low-key this year for various reasons and that’s about the perfect amount of effort. Thanks!
