Easter Brunch Tablescape

Every Easter, Pat and her husband host a Breakfast for family and friends. Pat bakes for days in advance. Jim brines a ham with his "secret" recipe in preparation for the meal. The day before, they pull out tables and place them throughout the kitchen and living room area. Pat sets the tables and gets ready for the crowd. However, she cheated this year because we wanted to post them on our blog prior to Easter. So - I went to her house today and took pictures. Then, I helped her break them down (so she could walk around the living room and use the kitchen table this week.)

The color theme is traditional Easter colors of pastel blues, greens, yellows, and pink. Pat accented them with some very non-traditional colors of bright Fiestaware Plum, Periwinkle, Shamrock, and Tangerine.
Over view of the kitchen table. (As most of you know, Pat's kitchen table was specially designed and built to double as a countertop. The chairs were imported from Canada.)

Pat usually uses round tables in the living room when she has a large party. She decided to change the look this year to match the kitchen table.

Light yellow coupled with a Periwinkle Blue Fiestaware dinner plate
These whimsical napkin holders were from Kohl's last year

Individual "baskets" of Easter candy at each place setting. (Pat will not buy anything for the table unless she can figure out more than one use for it - including these frosted sundae dishes from a local animal rescue second hand store.)

Next layer consists of a "Colorwheel" luncheon plate by 222 Fifth 

Then the very popular Fiestaware dinner plate (by Homer Laughlin)

The charger is from Maryland China Company

Flatware is "Image" by Spode

The five piece place setting

These cute salt and pepper shakers are from Pier 1

Egg candles sit in frosted bunny votives on a bed of Easter grass

Pat used marble Easter eggs in egg cups as the centerpiece with egg garland since the table is so narrow.

  1. I love this! What a great celebration! SO many adorable elements!
    Thanks so much for linking to Let's Dish!

  2. Such a beautiful table for Easter! I just noticed that the placemats come in different but coordinating pastel stripes -- what a great find. I adore the bunny napkin rings, and the egg cups with marble eggs plus the egg garland make a perfect centerpiece. I don't know how the two of you do it, but you create the perfect tablescape every week!

  3. What a darling, cute, fun, happy table this is. I just looked at those chargers today. They really are as pretty as they seemed. Love the bunny napkin rings. And the mix of colors is perfect. Have a beautiful day and a blessed Easter. xo marlis
