This year not only am I publishing a piece more than 48hrs ahead of the actual holiday, but I’m using a table I actually set as opposed to an image board! Things are looking-up Milhouse! Easter table setting ideas here we come!
For this year’s easter table, I’m keeping it really simple. You’ll notice the same gold chargers that I’ve been using for two years now, and some great greek key china that I picked-up at a fraction of the regular cost from Homesense during their spring Clear-out.
The napkins are part of the Target Threshold collection from last summer which I picked-up on sale last fall. Speaking of Target, let’s have a minute of silence for Target Canada which is experiencing it’s death rattle as we speak, stores are slated to close this week.
Beneath the tulip vase, in front of the champagne bucket you’ll notice a little mossy bird. He was a snatch from Homesense clearance and he normally hangs out in the kitchen by the window, but I thought it was seasonally appropriate for easter. You’ll also notice that the table is only set for 3 people: this is purely practical. As much as I would have loved to set the entire table for you guys, some work commitments started pressing so I did one end instead.
The big basket of eggs are actually full of chocolate for an easter hunt! or pre-meal snacks, you decide. I have a supreme weakness for Cadburry creme eggs and malted chocolate eggs. I am powerless when confronted with them, and gladly indulge until my tummy hurts, at which point I regret everything.
This, of course, hasn’t stopped Bruce from trying to get the eggs and appear in every photo. I love him dearly, but sometimes his snout will slowly protrude into a shot because he wants to see what I’m intently focusing on. It’s adorably maddening, and I’m pretty sure this is how people with children feel about it.
Seen from above, the table is stunning. The right balance of colours, classic elements, and a touch of camp with the eggs. I would gladly eat a meal at this table, and I hope you would too.
What will you be doing for easter? What did you think of my easter table setting ideas?
