Keep it Timeless
When it comes to creating a tablescape for the holidays, it's important to keep it timeless. This means choosing items that are reusable and can be blended well in future table settings or holidays. For this Easter tablescape, I've chosen items that reflect my home style, filled with neutral colors such as white, beige, and blues. Starting with the base, I chose a woven charger to bring in texture and natural elements.
Add a Touch of Holiday
While I try to choose items that are transitional, I do like to choose a few items that reflect the holiday. These beautiful handcrafted stoneware plates are muted, yet brings in those spring blooming colors. These timeless plates can be used year after year and handed down to others.
Mix Textures and Materials
To create a cohesive and flowing design, it's important to bring in different textures and materials. In this tablescape, I've paired the stoneware with a champagne-colored silverware to provide a pop of color and contrast on the neutral items chosen. The cloth napkins are a standard blue ticked striped print that can be used throughout the season. I always add a touch of floral to the napkin to bring in some natural element. This year I've focused on thistle stems, while it has a pop of color, it is nicely balanced with greens.
Keep the Centerpiece Simple
Centerpieces add an extra touch of elegance to any tablescape. I've chosen to keep the centerpiece of the table simple and easily transitional after the holiday. I picked a simple white fluted vase and filled it with these beautiful dried Rodanthe flowers, which can be used all summer! It is paired with two beautiful bunnies to complete the Easter tablescape.
Make it Your Own
Finally, don't be afraid to make it your own! In this tablescape, I would actually add some simple muted paint color to the standing bunny to make him pop against the flower vase. Get creative and have fun with it!
Creating a tablescape for your holiday celebration can be a fun. By keeping it timeless, adding a touch of holiday, mixing textures and materials, keeping the centerpiece simple, and making it your own, you can create a beautiful tablescape that you can use year after year.
