Since Easter is swiftly approaching, I thought I'd dedicate today's post to Easter Entertaining.
Most specifically, how to decorate your table!
I'm thinking a backyard party like this one from Country Living
This decor would really work for any table, but a rectangular one is probably best.
So I'd start with a simple linen runner.
They don't take away from the rest of the table like big bright printed table clothes do.
And I'd add a few decorative items on the runner for our centerpiece if you will
Love these purple lacquer frames from ZGallerie. Put some black and white glossies of you hunting for Easter eggs as a child.
Do I even have to tell my readers that Mercury Glass votives need to be included on EVERY table?
And then add a few bouquets of tulips in simple vases.
And a couple white porcelain hurricanes with candles inside.
At Each place setting, add a seagrass charger like this one.
And simple Ikat Napkins
Use simple dinnerware
I always prefer bead set creamware
And in lieu of the matching bowl, add a fun one like this...
And some vintage mis-matched silver...
And a glass of different pastel colors for water...
And some simple wine glasses
And colorful carving utensils
And you're ready for a FEAST!
