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.
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 colored eggs I find at the local markets.
Candy-coated chocolate eggs
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.
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.
Have fun, it's your party!
