Hello and Welcome!  I am glad you’re here! Can you believe that Easter is just a couple of weeks away? Today I am so excited to join in on the Easter Tablescape Blog Hop, hosted by the lovely and talented Chloe, from Celebrate and Decorate. This week-long blog hop is the perfect place to visit if you’re looking for some Easter inspiration. I hope you enjoy my casual Easter breakfast table and then head on over to the links at the end of this post to see all the different looks created for Easter tables!

After a long and cold winter here in Connecticut, I am ready for the sweet sounds of birds chirping, colorful blooms, and the sun to bring its light and warmth.  I am ready for Spring. Spring is like a promise of a fresh, new beginning. So to celebrate this season, I hung my DIY Springtime Wreath on our front door and decorated our home for Easter.

Last year I set a simple Easter table for dinner, using a combination of old and new.  You can read about it here.  This year, I will host both sides of our family for Easter dinner, so I will be setting up a buffet later in the day.  However, before our extended family arrives, my husband, children, and I will enjoy a holiday breakfast together

I started with a plain muslin table runner as a base.  I had bought mine a few years ago at Hobby Lobby, but you can find a similar one here. A few years ago a friend’s mom had made these adorable two-sided Easter napkins.  Since I have eight of them, I decided to use the gingham side as a place mat.

For a centerpiece, simple grocery-store tulips in a light shade of pink were tucked into an ironstone pitcher, and two small milkglass vases.  The flowers were clustered on a farmhouse-style tray, with a simple white dish filled with faux pastel-colored eggs.

On a white dish, these adorable homemade napkins, folded in a fun and festive bunny shape, hold a a cinnamon chip muffin from Fresh Market.  These will be a delicious treat to get our breakfast started.

To make this bunny shape with a cloth napkin, just follow these directions:

  1. Fold your ironed square napkin in half diagonally to create a triangle.
  2. Fold the point of the triangle in to the bottom of the triangle.
  3. Beginning at the bottom of the triangle, continue to fold diagonally, in folds of about 1 1/2 inches.
  4. Bring the ends together (these are the bunny ears) and tie with a ribbon.

Many people like to wrap the napkin around an Easter egg.  You can use a real, faux, or plastic egg.

No matter how you choose to set your holiday table, I hope that it is surrounded by loved ones.

Please take some time to visit all of the blogs and see all the beautiful tables these talented ladies have created!
