Easter is just around the corner and I believe that the long weekend filled with good food and relaxing activities will come just at the right time for many of us. The spring somehow often feels so long when compared to autumn so I think it is good to have a little break when waiting the summer to come. It has been so nice and sunny this week and I hope the good weather will continue also next week. Easter is also a good possibility to spend some time with family and friends as well as eat good food (and little too many chocolate eggs). I personally feel that the food taste even better when served from a beautiful table setting so I created one simple Easter table setting for the upcoming holiday. And actually, as it is so simple you could use the idea also later in the spring with the flowers, just then leave the feathers out!
In this table setting, I used few simple elements to bring the Easter feeling to the otherwise very white setting. Yellow narcissus, white weathers and brown string is all you need to bring little something to the setting without overdoing it. I also used my marble eggcups and little more fancy classes to bring little festive feeling. I think the sheepskins in the chairs is also working well with this setting as it is still not that warm so it brings little softness.
The string is an easy and cheap way to make napkin rings – someone told me that napkin rings are old fashioned but I still like them and it is an easy way to play with a theme in a table setting. The flowers give a nice hint of colour and can be later set in a vase. How do you feel about napkin rings?
I made a centrepiece from feather wreath I bought from sales a few years ago and placed a vase with narcissus in the middle. The plates are Arabia Lumi, wine classes classic Iittala Essence and the water classes are from Hobstar. I use these dishes every day but they serve so well in more festive occasions also, just the way I like it – not too many different dishes! And with white linen tablecloth and napkins, you can never go wrong.
I hope you got at least little inspiration from the million photos here today (sorry I had little hard time to choose the best ones). How are the plans for Easter coming together for you? Anything special planned?
