Easter Table Inspiration

 

I can't believe it's Easter already!  It seems to have crept up on me this year . . .

 

 We have family coming for dinner Easter Sunday so I've been looking for inspiration for my Easter dining table.   Usually I throw something together at the last minute but this year I want to be a bit more prepared!  We have two sets of dinnerware in our house, an plain white set for everyday use and a frilly French set for special occasions.  So, Sunday will be a frilly French day.  That's as far as I got before I turned to Pinterest for some inspiration . . . I'm using white ware but I must say I love Gwyneth Paltrow's Easter table . . .

I love the duck egg blue . . .  


This is soooo pretty, so French . . .


. . .  or how about lanterns and pink roses . . .


. . .  or a hint of lilac . . .


I do like these rustic tables . . .



but then there is something so pure and fresh about all white . . .


A perfect Spring table . . .


Frilly French dinnerware . . .


The little blackboard adds a nice touch . . .


Simple but effective . . . white tulips . . .


I used tulips last year so I want to do something different this year, maybe some wild flowers . . .

Queen Anne's Lace


. . . or if I can't find any good wild ones some baby's breath . . .


and of course candles are essential . . .  when the night draws in . . .

I love the soft pastel colours of these eggs - so sweet . . .


I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!  Enjoy the break!

Great Inspiration Sharon! Wish I would have seen your post before Easter, and set a prettier table. However, I find it harder to muster up enthusiasm when all the family is not home :( I must take out my Waterford more often!
Thank you for the inspiring post.
