I’m pretty excited for spring.
I love all the spring colors and flowers when they bloom. Of course living here in the high desert, I don’t have much that is ready to bloom. I am pretty happy to have some warm days to get outside and start to leg-up(exercise) my horse for some spring and summer ropings.
Inspired by the season and the holiday we hold so dear, I am also happy to be able to create an Easter spring table using some spring bulbs that I can later plant in my garden!
I used flowering potted bulbs in a pretty container to create a beautiful centerpiece to decorate my Easter table scape.
Maybe The Perfect Spring Centerpiece
A pretty centerpiece on the table is always a good thing- especially for Easter.
There’s always a first time for everything, and for this first time, I tried my hand at planting some spring bulbs.
I picked up some potted flowering bulbs at Home Depot. They came in 4-inch plastic pots and each pot had 3-4 bulbs. With several flower options available, I chose tulips. I chose a pretty pot to go with my tulips and turned them into a beautiful spring centerpiece and then used them again to create a garden-inspired spring tablescape.
With a pretty stack of dishes, crystal glasses, candles, linens with a pop of color, and additional vintage pieces…
I set the stage.
Gathered Place Settings
A table set with a dozen beautiful matching place settings?
This is a mix and mingle of gathered vintage china.
White Dishes Dressed for Easter
A little country style, a little rustic and refound, with a mix of old and new, but as equally pretty and inviting as a table set with a dozen matching vintage china plates.
This is a gathering of patterns and silver flatware.
Creating a tablescape is very much a building process. I started with the pink tulip color inspiration and built the tablescape from there.
Think Outside the Box
Maybe some different combinations…
I added some bold linens… and gathered silver, heavy on the patina and vintage charm.
With just a mix and mingle of different colors and textures for my own unique look.
A Charming Tablescape Without A Lot of Fuss
I wanted the place setting components of the table to be colorful but not overly done. My goal for the table as a whole is to be beautiful, but not complicated. I played with a number of napkin and plate combinations until I settled on the white with the dainty blue rimmed flower print and white combo setting along with bold pink and white striped napkins matching the tulips in the center.
The white dishes are my everyday dinnerware.
All just a little on the playful side.
Easter celebrations are on the small side again this year- you can still set a pretty table, add a touch of whimsy and charm and enjoy a lovely at home celebration.
Today it is all about a round-up of on the table ideas from my wild west stylin’ for my wild west livin.’
I hope you enjoyed my pretty potted tulips and table setting.
A charming tablescape without a lot of fuss.
