An EGGcellent Tablescape Idea

Since today is the beginning of a very busy weekend for most, I thought I would show you a very quick and easy tablescape to throw together.

Perhaps you are running behind like me? While I am not “hosting” per se, with a family of 7 it’s pretty much always like hosting and I like to try and make the holidays special for the kids whether we have company or not.

I’ve done this tablescape on my small round table but you could easily set a much larger table the same way. Perhaps just add a couple fun buckets (or some other cute container) of fresh flowers to either side of the EGGcellent centerpiece to make it work for a larger table.

Without further ado:

As you can see it is very simple and timeless.

I began by placing a burlap and lace runner across the middle of the table followed by a wire egg basket that I purchased already done in this beautiful shade of deep teal.

I placed some plastic eggs inside that I purchased from the easter section of Walmart (links to follow). This is 3 packs of them. Two I left the original white and one I painted pale blue.

No tablescape is complete without candles and what could be better than some vintage brass candlesticks and classic white tapers?

Although these 2 brass candlesticks appear identical, they are not a set and were thrifted at completely different times and locations, hence the variance in their color.

I love the patina of vintage metals and never polish the patina off of them when I get them.

You could easily place little bunches of candlesticks on either side of the basket. I just chose to keep it simple with only 2.

For the place settings I simply layered a classic white square dinner plate with a smaller melamine luncheon plate that I recently purchased. I love the beautiful colors and pattern and the fact that we can safely use them when we eat outdoors during the spring and summer as well.

I placed a flour sack napkin between the plates (a color pulled from the accent plates would be beautiful as well) and a sprig of faux boxwood on each plate.

Everyday flatware complete each setting along with small glass tumblers.

If you prefer a more formal look, simply replace the flour sack napkins with a lovely linen napkin, the flatware with a more formal set and the tumblers with stemware.

Bouquets of fresh flowers are always a wonderful addition to any tablescape and will also bring a more formal feel to the table.

I hope this give you a simple and very easy idea for a beautiful tablescape for this Easter weekend or any time during the spring or summer.

I put this together using things I already had with the exception of the wire egg basket that I purchased for this tablescape – don’t you just love shopping your home for fresh new ideas?

My beautiful friend Emily from LeCultivateur has also done up a wonderful tablescape to share with you today. Let’s go take a look!

      Aren’t those darling? And perfect for using outdoors too. I adore brass and especially mixing it with other metals. The more patina the better ?
