Easter Table





 Happy Weekend, friends! We are hosting Easter brunch tomorrow and somehow I delegated all the quiche making, the fruit salad making, the muffin making, the cheese plate assembling and I bought a lemon tart. I also set the table, so phew! (Wiping the perspiration from my forehead). For the rest of the weekend, I'm just going to have to lie down.



Last year I got this set of banded white napkins from Crate and Barrel and had them monogramed with our married monogram in white. I love a monogram on the table, but I like it to be discreet. There are 12 different color bands in a set and I bought two sets so for every holiday I mix and match the colors that work best with our table scape. Mark and Graham has some beauties that provide a similar look.



At the end of the summer, we basically stole these bistro chairs for the deck and they work perfectly to bring in for extra seating that isn't bulky around the dining room table. It's always nice when pieces can serve dual purpose. World Market has a great set of two and another perk about these babes, is that they are stackable for easy storage.


I love tablecloths that serve as a colorful backdrop for all the layers of a table. This one was a gift a few years ago from Anthropologie and the matching napkins are still available. I found these vintage Japanese plates at a local thrift store a while back. 



For the centerpiece I mixed Daffodils in a teapot and votives for a focal point that isn't overpowering. I added height with these Five Stripes candles and books layered under the teapot. I'll put books under anything. 


I hope everyone has a lovely day with friends and family full of beauty and the celebration of Christ's love.
