The spirit of the holidays is a powerful way to bring a sense of joy to your home. Easter, one of the most anticipated holidays of the spring season, is as much a religious hallmark as it is a time to greet the warmer months and celebrate renewal and growth.
In honor of such a significant holiday, we put together a guide on how to create the central focus of the party: the Easter tabletop. Whether you are celebrating with a large party or a small one, the process of decorating and curating the perfect table can be a rewarding experience! Read on to browse our customers’ favorite items, as well as some of our designer’s choices.
Large Scale Vision
The first step is to envision the finished table. For this, we recommend viewing other finished results — consider browsing through Instagram and Pinterest pages for inspiration.
The next step is to narrow down the general color scheme; pastel spring colors are a popular pick for the occasion.
Equally important to consider is whether you want to have a monochromatic or a multicolored theme. If it’s the latter, you should consider creating accents through the details you include, such as the centerpiece or figurines; in this case, we recommend that the china you include is more simple than detailed.
If you want a monochromatic theme, consider different shades of the same color or mixing ornate & simple pieces, such as the example below:
Beware of overmatching in any theme & pattern and instead, focus on a background color theme, with strong accents or figurine themes, much like the examples shown in the above inspiration images.
As a general rule of thumb, to create an easy spring atmosphere, opt for green, pink or yellow color themes for your china. While the lighter shades set the mood more easily, if you are not a fan of the pastel like hues, you can choose darker shades and lighten the overall color scheme through details.
Here are some of the perfect Easter appropriate tableware sets from Scully & Scully:
Don’t forget to include quality flatware and barware to help make the picture perfect tabletop!
As a rule of thumb for a classic table, if you have a boisterous pattern or details on your china, opt for more subtle designs for flatware & barware, in clear colors with simple cuts.
If you have a monochromatic or simple set, consider the more experimental designs in barware, especially these gorgeous ones:
There is no better way to set a theme and create coherence between your individually selected items than focusing on details! Especially popular during this time, bunny or egg figurines put a whimsical yet elegant spin on an otherwise plain table.
The unique Pewter sets are an unexpected yet homey pop of spring!
Centerpieces and vases that have a spring color scheme or pattern are yet another way to add the special touch.
And last to strongly weave everything into a coherent color or pattern scheme, you can do so by including small accessories such as napkin rings, placemats, coasters and even napkins.
We hope preparing for this special day, dedicated to celebrating the beginning better and brighter days as much as it is a religious mark, to being you immense joy! As always, leave your comments below!
