Easter Floral – Purple, Pink & White

This is nuts! It’s St. Patrick’s Day already, and Easter Sunday is just 2 short weeks away!!! I really feel like we’re in a time crunch, so I’m just going to jump right to it!

Starting this week, I will begin each post with a photo of the inspiration for the tablescape. I hope this will help novice tablescapers to expand your creative thinking skills.

This week’s inspiration: a pack of cocktail napkins with purple & pink tulips that I spied at the grocery store!

Last week’s table was serene and subdued. This week’s is its polar opposite so get ready for an over-the-top color explosion, baby!!!

Flatware, Napkin, Stemware, Egg Cup collageI started with a full-length white tablecloth (LinenTablecloth.com) and topped it diagonally with a reversible Easter egg-colored striped cloth. I used this same topper on the flip side for an Easter buffet table last year. Rose-colored chargers from Michaels (picked up for the bargain price of just 49¢ each last year!) are the foundation of the place setting topped with a white Corelle dinner plate, a Bordallo Pinheiro green cabbage salad plate, and a Pier One white floral bowl. A pale green napkin from Bed, Bath & Beyond peeks out from beneath the plate. The stemware is the ever-familiar Dollar Tree green goblet paired with a beautiful purple number from T.J. Maxx. The flatware is International Silver “Danish Princess”, and each place setting is finished with a pink, purple or yellow sparkled egg in an white egg cup from World Market.

DSCN2418WMThe centerpiece – a melange of figurines and florals – runs the entire length of the table.

Bunny collageI love these super feminine twin bunnies all dressed up in their Easter finery! I have named them Hilary and Henrietta. 🙂 I arranged their bunny ears to look as though they’re a bit wind-blown in the Spring breeze!

Table floral collageThe main table floral is pulled together in a wire basket with woody green accents. Heads of cabbage are joined by a bunch of perky pink larger-than-life faux tulips set to give it an asymmetrical look. The basket is surrounded with pots of pink and purple African violets and white ceramic vases of tulips and hydrangea.

Buffet floral collageI’m back to my old dramatic tricks with these over-the-top floral arrangements on the buffet behind the dining table. Oversized pink tulips and cabbages spill from curvy white glass vases (T.J. Maxx) to create quite a stir!

Floral chair collageThis room is truly about florals!!! The seat of this child-sized chair has been replaced with a moss ball cut in half and topped with faux florals to mimic those on the dining table.

Tea cart collageThe tea cart holds a Ralph Lauren white ceramic cake stand with pierced edges I picked up at Tuesday Morning a few years back. The white tea pot is from Home Goods. Last, the whole inspiration for this tablescape: paper cocktail napkins with pink & purple tulips.

China cabinet collageAnother Ralph Lauren cake stand on the china cabinet holds glittered Easter eggs.

That’s one Easter tablescape down, one to go!

  16. Alycia. Your table explodes with happiness! Thank you for explaining the steps as you create. Your inspiration napkins got your juices flowing superbly. I love the adorable bunnies and the colors with your dynamic floral arrangements. The diagonally placed striped Easter fabric cloth is so perfect to pull it all together. Then the cute egg cups. You have the talent with textures that I want to learn to do. It would take me months to put half your table together and you whipped it out in no time.

    Thank you also for your sweet encouraging comments. You are such a good writer and encourager.

  18. Hilary and Henrietta are adorable! Love those names! Your pink is showing once again, not that I blame you, I’m partial to that color myself! What a delicate pink on those cupcakes! I love it. Ever since we moved away from the city of Chicago proper, I have had a very hard time finding a good bakery. My local grocery store makes cupcakes, but they frost them in the most shockingly bright colors, forget it if you are looking for something delicate and dainty. That reticulated cake plate is divine!

  20. Good Night & Good Morning Dear Lady A—

    Thank you so much for your time for coming and visit me @D´Box.

    I really love when my fave well-know bloggie friends visits me. It feels that I am a member of the well-known clan i Blogielandia. Isn’t it amazing?

    Yeah! My heart still not recovered but I know it will not recover. I will and still missed dad, for better or for worst. I just keep the sweet bitter memories in my heart and that keep me going.

    It is unreal knowing that I am an orphan. Dad was 90 yrs old when he left us and Mum will turn 90 yrs old this coming June. So, both came up in the right age.

    Anyways, thank you for making my evening/morning happy for your visit and that is really the truth.
    Hope you like my so-so setting in the honour of St. Patrick’s. Fun time though.

    Have a great night and hope you will have a blissful week ahead.

    Hugs from D´Box.

    P.S. I had to laugh about your comment on my post about the green and gold glasses. You hit it perfectly when you said they look like the 60’s. They were a wedding gift in 1969. I did have 8, but my set has dwindled down to 4. laurie

  34. Easter surely did explode on your table. How fun is that! You have truly inspired me Alycia. With no outdoor flowers blooming at my home to pick for this early and cold Easter we will have next weekend (supposed to snow again this weekend), I have been in a quandary as to how to decorate my Easter Table. I am having a family and friends brunch. I am going to do a conglomeration of items including the cabbages or kale as you show. Thank you! 🙂
