I am letting go of tradition for this year and planning a simple Easter brunch at home. I am setting a simple, yet elegant holiday table.
Hello and welcome to My Family Thyme! Today I am honored to be joining in with my lovely and talented friend Chloe from Celebrate & Decorate for an Easter Tablescape Blog Hop! If you are visiting from Southern Nell Gracious Living, I am so glad you’re here!
I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy. I have been a little absent lately as we all are adjusting to our new way of life. As a teacher, I have been busy collaborating with colleagues and transitioning my students to a new way of learning. With so much uncertainty right now, I felt a little unsure about posting. However, I have missed you all! With everyone staying at home, it is so wonderful to be connected here!
Easter is going to be a little different this year. We’re letting go of some of our traditions, while remembering that this holiday and this season is all about hope, love, and new beginnings.
I kept our table simple, yet elegant this year. On our table, we’re embracing and honoring the past with my family’s vintage pieces… like milk glass, vintage flatware, my grandmother’s china, and my favorite glasses that also belonged to her.
Simultaneously, we are celebrating spring with pops of color and texture. Striped DIY cloth napkins, fun Easter egg towels from Target (last year), and some artificial speckled eggs placed on a bed of soft moss bring in soft pastel hues and hints of the season.
Our gathering will be smaller this year…just my husband, my children and my mother in law, who is staying with us, and myself. We’re breaking our tradition of having a large family dinner and are going to try something new…a simple Easter brunch, complete with Baked Eggs with Gruyere, Leeks and Tarragon, Blueberry Muffin Breakfast Cake, and maybe Strawberry Shortcake Deconstructed too.
Of course, our Easter decor wouldn’t be complete without tulips! I love to decorate with fresh flowers and picked these beauties up while recently at the grocery store.
Keeping it simple, but making it special. We are ready for Easter! I hope you are inspired and have some ideas to take away and use for your Easter celebration this year!
Wishing you peace, happiness, and the best of health!
