23 Easter Tablescapes

Welcome! I am so glad that you have stopped by today. If this is your first time visiting Red Cottage Chronicles, you may not know how I love to style pretty tables for every occasion.  Several times throughout the year Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate hosts a week-long tablescapes blog hop and this week it is all about Easter tablescapes.

At the end of this post you will find links to all the bloggers participating this week, but first I am delighted to be sharing our Easter tablescape today.

Our family usually celebrates Easter dinner at the home of my sister and brother-in-law as they are the only ones that have room to accommodate 13 (and sometimes more) around the table! This year we will also be celebrating two belated birthdays at the same time!

Even though we will be having the larger Easter meal with our extended family, our own little family of four will still spend time around our table together Easter weekend.  When it comes to Easter tablescapes, I always tend to choose pastel colors.  This year was no different.

My inspiration for this years table was these cute little Beatrix Potter books I found while browsing at local antique store recently.  At just $2 each I couldn’t pass them up.

Who can resist The Tale of Peter Rabbit?

I used my simple, dimpled edged white dinner and salad plates layered with pink Hemstitch napkins.  Faux grass squares I purchased at the dollar store make whimsical place mats.

China teacups that were handed down from my grandmother wait for tea to be served after our meal.  Each one different than the other.

If you know me at all, you know how much I love fresh flowers! Instead of one floral centerpiece, I used two this time. Both potted flowers purchased at the nursery.

The Violas not only look good in this tin stand, but I also sugared some of them to use on top of the cupcakes! On the table I just wrapped them in pink tissue and set them in the stand. How easy is that?

Later I will plant them outside in my window boxes.  For less than $10 I sure will get my money’s worth!

I love to use food in my tablescapes, and along with the cupcakes I made our family’s go-to 10 minute birthday cake.

I couldn’t resist this little Rae Dunn Creamer from HomeSense.  I will definitely be using this well beyond Easter!

Down the center of the table I used this beautiful sign painted by my very talented friend Leslie! She makes gorgeous signs and when she told me I could choose any one for myself, I knew right away it would be this one.  Not only is she a very talented sign painter, but my goodness the girl can sing! She sang Amazing Grace at my father’s funeral.  Both the song and Leslie hold a special place in my heart!

Not to mention, it is painted on an old piece of red wood that came off an old barn! Love!

I hope you have enjoyed my little table tour and found a little inspiration for your own! The benefit of posting on the last day of the blog hop is that all the links for the week are now live.  You can start with Monday and browse all the Easter tablescapes for the week! 

Until next time….
