A Pink and Blue Spring Tablescape

Design Tips | Home Tour | Spring

I was browsing the aisles of HomeGoods on Tuesday (avoiding the piles of laundry that were waiting for me at home), when I came across the dishes of my dreams!  Once I saw them I knew they would be perfect for my Spring table.

I don’t tend to use a lot of pastels, even at Easter, so I loved that these dishes have the more saturated versions of traditional Easter colors.  And given that I prefer the look of Casual Elegance, I have no hesitation mixing these more formal plates with my rustic wood table.  I actually like the contrast!

Even though the dishes have a gold rim on them, I decided to use my beloved antique flatware from Elsie Green so that the gold on the plates would be set apart from the rest of the table.

I picked a few azaleas from my garden and added them to egg cups to coordinate with the flowers on the plates.

The centerpiece is a mix of real and faux flowers.  I planted some dark pink freesia and variegated ivy in my ironstone soup tureen and then added a few silk hygrandeas to the mix.  I also draped a long blue necklace around and through the pot for an added pop of color.  {Your jewelry box is a great place to look if you need a small accent for a tablescape or even a vignette.  Why not put your costume jewelry to use when you’re not wearing it?!}

Provided I can keep the plants alive, our table is ready for Easter dinner!

Spring Break starts next week for my kids, so apologies in advance if next week’s posts are a bit sporadic.  :)
