Easter Tablescape

Easter is one of my favorite holidays. Mostly, I love the story of love behind it, that Jesus loved us so unconditionally that he was willing to suffer and die in order that we might be forgiven for our sin, and that we no longer have to be separated from God. And secondly, I love that it's springtime, with all the beautiful flowers blooming and birds chirping...Aaahhh!

This year for our Easter table, I wanted to decorate with the color yellow. It's hard not to look at something yellow and just smile.

So I started with a white and yellow table cloth that I got a few years back from Williams Sonoma (I have a slight obsession for linens and tablecloths!)

Then I placed my silver Chargers on top. I got these at an estate sale, but I've seen the recently at HomeGoods.

I found these fun, yellow and white striped napkins with lace trim at HomeGoods and layered them with some solid yellow napkins from SurLaTable. The napkin rings are mismatched, that I've acquired over the years. Someday I'll remember to buy a matching set.

For the centerpieces, I'm using
1. Fresh flowers in a vintage white, milk glass vase that I bought at an estate sale

2. Glass Hurricane candle holders filled with fresh Lemons

3. White, wooden candle holders from SurLaTable

4. White ceramic candle holders from Target

5. White glass candy bowls that I bought from yard sales.

I like to use centerpieces that are varying heights and textures while being the same color. The chocolate Easter candies add a pop of additional color as well.

Each week, I switch out the flowers with fresh ones so the ones that will actually be on our table when we have Easter dinner, might be something a little different than shown here. But that's part of the fun of decorating is making small changes that create new and different looks. What are your plans for your Easter table?
