It is no surprise that a blog dedicated to inspiring its readers with beautiful tablescapes and creatively inspired decor would design a spectacular Easter tablescape. We love everything about this table, but what we are most excited to share with you is Brosnan’s fresh take on well-loved traditions. Her design effortlessly blends the new and the vintage into a design that simply sings of Springtime.
A beautiful floral on white tablecloth sets the stage for this stunning tablescape and blends perfectly with the warm pinks and spring greens of the color scheme. It also serves as a great reminder that we can think outside the box when designing tablescapes. Tradition tells us that a round table calls for a round tablecloth. But Karin proves that tradition is often a starting point to good design, not an absolute. The delicately printed square tablecloth adds wonderful interest and dimension to the round table and allows the table’s vintage character to show through and become an element of the design.
Karin’s mother, Joan Clark, is the owner of Chocolate Chocolatier, a designer chocolate shop that supplies chocolates to many Southern California hotels, stores, and specialty shops. Here, Karin uses Chocolate Chocolatier’s mini boxes of pastel-colored almond dragées to fill an apothecary jar. The candy boxes serve double duty as a favor for your guests.
Karin gives a nod to tradition with this beautifully creative floral centerpiece. She filled a footed white bowl with colorful shredded paper, Easter egg boxes, speckled eggs, and a mini box. Around the bottom, she tucked in tissue paper peony pompoms in shades of bright and pale pink to match the blossoms found on the tablecloth. The use of different shades and sizes adds great dimension to this creative centerpiece.
The tablesetting adds both shine and sophistication with a martini glass filled with paper grass and homemade candies, layered on a metallic chartreuse plate, and a white charger plate.
The vintage French egg holder is a beautiful addition to this Spring and Easter tablescape. For extra color you could add dyed eggs. However, we love the look of these fresh white eggs. The stylish crown votive candle holders can be found on The Style Sisters online shop.
For an unexpected touch, instead of candles, Karin added more pastel-colored almond dragées to the crown votive candle holders.
The choice of a white rooster adds whimsical texture to the tablescape. To give the rooster height, Karin set him on top of a moss covered cake stand. To add a touch of color, coordinating ribbon is tied around his neck. An over-sized peony pompom flower is added to the crystal chandelier to tie the entire design together.
