Setting the Table for Easter

Setting the Table for Easter

Easter is going to be a big deal for us this year because it will mark the first time we've hosted family members for a holiday in our home! My parents and sisters will be arriving from Virginia at the end of next week to spend Easter with us and we are already planning our Sunday afternoon feast. Garlicky goat cheese mashed potatoes, strawberry and blackberry salad, fresh buttery bread... We will definitely be changing out of our church clothes into some stretchy pants by the time the meal is over.

I wanted to prep ahead of time and make sure I knew exactly how the table was going to look. I've never been one for pastels (or traditional color palettes in general) but I knew I wanted something fresh, bright, and spring-y. I decided to forgo the typical Easter lilies or tulips for some vibrant cornflower blue hydrangeas and kept the color palette and table settings very cool and crisp. Some vintage lavender china, blue Laiguole flatware, and grass green candles kept the room feeling like a breath of fresh air, even with the less than welcome end-of-winter frost outside.
