Easter décor tablescaping can rival fashion’s finery for the spotlight in the Easter parade.
To look upon a beautiful Easter décor tablescaping as a work of art is no over eggaggeration of the term.
Central to a lovely tablescape, creating a centerpiece of fresh flowers and/or greenery from nature’s floral department aka our own yards broadens the field for artistic interpretation.
Begin with a vase, jar, tureen, pitcher, decorative coffee can- any type container that floats your boat or flower frog will do.
Fern and magnolia leaves, camellias, hydrangea, knock out roses, palm fronds, daffodils, dogwood branches, bridal wreath spirea, azaleas and lilies- all eggscellent centerpiece options.
Inspiration lives in the great and colorful outdoors.
I like a good word within a word moment.
Take the word tablescape for example.
The word escape is within the word tablescape, and that discovery became the subject of the blog post, Seasonal Update: Turn Your Tablescape Into A Table Escape.
When we tablescape we escape through creativity, and right in the middle of the word creativity is the word that is the reason for tablescaping in the first place- eat.
Now that I think about it, when we tablescape we decorate, and the last three letters in decorate spell ate.
I’m on a roll, and speaking of roll, the GO Home Rabbit Butter Dish (great price at Lowes) is a butter get this one for your Easter tablescape.
As many of you know from reading my blog and social media posts, I’m big on selecting and purchasing items capable of many uses.
Getting more bang for your decorating buck is just the smart and savvy way to go.
Several Easter tablescapes ago I started a serveware tradition using this rabbit statue as a salad bowl.
Butter lettuce, sliced fresh Louisiana strawberries, chopped walnuts, red onion rings, and honey-apple cider vinaigrette springs to mind.
Honey-Apple Cider Vinaigrette
¼ cup vegetable oil
½ cup sugar
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons corn syrup
2 tablespoons honey
½ teaspoon honey mustard
generous squeeze fresh lime juice
½ teaspoon celery seed
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon paprika
In mixing bowl or glass jar with lid, combine vegetable oil, sugar, and apple cider vinegar.
Whisk or shake, blending all together. Add remaining ingredients, stirring or shaking well.
Place salad greens in mixing bowl.
Top with sliced strawberries, red onion slices, and chopped walnuts.
Drizzle vinaigrette over mix in small amounts until you reach the desired amount.
Toss together and serve.
Consider using a vintage creamer or pitcher for a salad dressing/condiment server.
First comes Easter, then comes Mother’s Day, then comes summer soiree entertaining at play.
One purchase, infinite occasions to set an impressive table.
Cottagecore is presently having a moment in the décor style world, and it comes to the table ready to impress through color, texture, and pattern.
Dollar store deal of the day glassware grants a great look at a great price.
Our local Dollar Tree lacked these in their inventory, so Dave the Builder picked up a dozen of them on his way home from a remodel project.
He’s a good egg.
Ions ago I hit a super sale on a boxed set of 12 Godinger Dublin iced beverage glasses for a ridiculously low price of $30.00 + tax.
Twelve glasses this lovely for $30.00 qualify as a gotta have it find!
For the look, weight, and quality, the today’s $5.00 each price point still comes in as a steal.
Who needs Easter egg dye when nature lends a hand.
Pink Easter grass paired with blue and white tulle and net saved from last year will fill the Easter basket I made in 2019.
In the words of a famous rabbit, that’s all folks.
