If it works for my wardrobe why wouldn’t it work on my table?

If it works for my wardrobe why wouldn’t it work on my table?

I love setting the table for Easter dinner. It is the time of the year when nature comes back to life and I’m thrilled it’s Spring!

Similar to the way I dress, I have basics that I depend on to set the table and accessories I count on to dress it up and create a different look.

Riche Holmes Grant from The Riche Life has a great comment worth remembering.  “Do what you like, … it’s your table, it’s your home, and no one should be judging what you do.”  It is so true if you worry about what other people will think you can’t enjoy what you're doing.

Easter Table Setting

My basics:

  • White tablecloth
  • Green table runner (actually a fabric window valance purchased at a flea market)
  • Plates, and glasses for accessories
  • My everyday water glasses
  • I have a very large collection of green glass dishes and glasses purchased in Mexico as well as off-white plates with a basket weave rim.
  • My silverware is a mix of family silver and pieces I purchased at flea markets so I have enough for large groups. I like mixing different patterns.
  • Off-white odorless candles

My Easter accessories:

  • Flowers and greenery
  • Brown and white eggs purchased at the grocery store (I don’t boil them so I can put them back in the fridge after dinner.
  • I also use Quail and different color eggs I find at the local markets.
  • Candy coated chocolate eggs
  • Jelly beans

      

    Candy is a big part of this celebration so I always include it in my decorations and let guests know they are free to eat the candy. I want it to be fun for everyone.

    I don’t limit myself to the items I’ve described. When I see something else I can use I do, but starting with the basics makes being creative and having fun much easier, just like getting dressed every day.

    There is something perfect about cracking a hard-boiled egg and sliding your fingers under the shell so it pops away from the white in a few big pieces and you are left with this beautiful glistening egg. You particularly know how satisfying that experience is when you expect it but don’t have it. Here is how...

    Sitting at the dinner table and lingering after a delicious meal has always been my favorite part of a party. I love when the table, still cluttered with plates, silver, bottles, and glasses half-full, all shimmering in the candle light. Everyone dawdling, their voices excited while eruptions . . .

    So far, 2022 has shaken me to my core. It has left me questioning things I believed to be true—things I took for granted. Number 1 I NEVER thought Roe v. Wade would be overturned. That is my stupidity; the signs were obvious but I just didn’t believe it could/would happen. Number 2 I NEVER thought . . .
