Easter in Pink & Grey

HIP-HOP HOORAY!!! I’M CELEBRATING MY 200TH POST TODAY!!!

INSPIRATION: This stately-looking bunny rabbit wearing a jacket & vest similar to what I used to wear...minus the pot belly, of course! :-)

INSPIRATION: This stately-looking bunny rabbit wearing a jacket & vest similar to an outfit I used to wear during my “Brat Pack” days back in the 80s…minus the pot belly, of course! (Slap a pair of wire-rimmed glasses on this fellow and smooth his ears down like hair, and he’d be Benjamin Franklin’s doppelganger! 🙂 )

Easter is a few short days away. If you’re looking to do something a little more on the formal side for brunch or dinner without being totally stuffy, this post might be of some help to you.

Tablescapes at Tale Twenty-One, www.tabletwentyone.wordpress.com - Easter in Pink & Grey: Single place settingI decided to go with a bare table this time around. That’s a little unusual for me, but I thought all the elements would work well on bare wood. Gleaming silver metal chargers are topped with Easterling (no pun intended…really! 😉 ) “Majestic” china from my Mom. I thought the shade of grey on the rims complemented the inspiration rabbits’ jackets.

You’ll be seeing a bit more of these, used in different ways, over the summer months. The flatware is Hampton Silversmith’s “Patriot – Mirror”, and the stemware is Mikasa “Jamestown Platinum”.

Tablescapes at Table Twenty-One, www.tabletwentyone.wordpress.com - Easter in Pink & Grey: centerpiece collageThe centerpiece starts with a moss table runner with various-sized moss balls strewn about. For this demonstration I used faux pink and white hyacinth in the silver champagne bucket and little pots of pink and white grape hyacinth. For your actual Easter table, though, it would be really terrific if you could go fresh. There’s nothing in the world quite like fresh flowers!  (For the sake of uninterrupted conversation during the meal, the champagne bucket of flowers can be easily moved to the sideboard.) The bunny figurines – looking quite dapper in their grey knicker pants and jackets with pink and white accents – are from Home Goods.

Tablescapes at Table Twenty-One, www.tabletwentyone.wordpress.com - Easter in Pink & Grey: Short floralsThe buffet has florals that complement those used on the dining table. They are on the ends only to leave room for the big ol’ Easter ham or desserts. The tall moss ball “trees” mimic the place card holders as do the shorter moss ball “bushes.”

  1. Alycia,
    You set the prettiest tables… I love, love that gray china..and that champagne bucket. I gave mine away in a fit of stupidity one year..I have wished for it back a hundred times…Especially when I saw your beautiful arrangement.. This is really a perfect Easter table. I would love to join you as long as you did NOT make me eat any egg yellows. LOL
    Love ya girl and Happy Easter,
    Mona

  2. I love the balance that you’ve achieved through the darks in the table, and the bunnies. They do just what they are supposed to do by popping the pinks and whites that you’ve included in your design. I love this! Thanks for inviting us for a peek. Happy Easter! Cherry Kay

  3. What beautiful colors! I never thought of putting gray and pink together but they really complement each other. You just gave me am idea. Your bunny is handsome…christine

  4. Wow Alycia, this table is gorgeous with your chosen color theme. Those rabbits are the best…great find at Home Goods. Love your moss topiary name holders. Your added touches of beautiful flowers and more moss is lovely. I love pink too and you have added so much glamour with this color.
    Love it! Have a great Easter….

  5. Hey Alycia- Love the look! Pink and Gray are great together and this table offers a nice organic feel yet polished too! Those hyacinths look fabulous in the silver champagne bucket and the inspiration bunny is a cutie! Those are the tallest mercury glass vases I’ve ever seen! I’m going to use my Mom’s tea cart for the punch bowl and coffee for our Easter gathering. Have a blessed Easter my friend! 🙂

  6. Hello there, I do love the pink and grey theme. Very nice. You really brought the whole room together nicely. Love the formal beauty of it all. The flowers really soften up the edges real nice! Happy Easter to you and yours.

  7. Congratulations on your 200th post, Alycia!!!!!! That is just awesome for your devoted readers who have been inspired 200 times! As a new subscriber, I have gone back and read through your archives. Love your dapper Beatrix Potter gentleman bunny and all those moss topiaries. The silver touches are elegant with the rose theme. Just beautiful!

  8. OMG!!! Those mercury vases are to die for, Lady A? Just tell me what to do, I will do it for you 🙂

    Congrats pretty Lady A. Job well done.

    Happy Easter to you, dear H and lovely Mum & to the whole fam.

    Hugs from D´Box.

  9. I am crushing on the gigantic vases (?) on the buffet, they are gorgeous!!!! And you’re right the rabbits would resemble Mr. Franklin if they were donning a pair of specs. The rabbits are also enough of a nod towards the holiday. Remove them and this table would instantly be suitable for Mothers Day or any other spring fling. However, I know you better than that. I also like the vibe of the bare wood showing, very cool.

  10. This is one of my favorite tables you’ve done. The hyacinths, real or faux, look stunning in the silver champagne bucket and urns. The grey china with soft pink details is very sophisticated. Gorgeous!
    Happy Easter!

  11. This table is gorgeous Easter elegance! Not your pink & gray look from the 80’s. I like how you incorporated a touch of whimsy with those adorable bunnies. You’ve inspired me with this different utilization of the beverage cart. I’m so impressed by your creativity! Happy Easter!! xx

  12. Just gorgeous!! I’m just in awe of how you make everything perfect! Leaving no details out..your creative skills are endless. Every setting I see makes me want to throw a party! (and that means party hard in my book) lol.. but joking aside..Alycia girl, you are the BOMB-diggetty !!!!!!

  13. Your faux hyacinths look so real and are stunning in the silver champagne bucket. I love the moss runner, grape hyacinth pots and moss topiary name holders. Perfect for an Easter table to use pink linen napkins. You always do so well with your graphics for printed menus and Easter Pink is a clever name. To top off lovely crystal, china and chargers those well dressed rabbits make a great statement.

    Have a wonderful and blessed Easter.

  14. Congratulations on your 200th post, Alycia! Love the table and that rabbit figurine is great. I totally agree: Mr. Hop looks eerily similar to Benjamin Franklin!

  15. Wood….you went woody. Love it and I have to say you shocked me with this one. It made me stop for a second and go back to s few of my favorite tables you have done…(Yes I saved them for inspiration I stalk your site…I make no apologies) This is one table that you didn’t use a tablecloth, and you haven’t done that in quite some time….I really like it. Your table is gorgeous.

    The Hyacinth’s and moss ball topiaries are gorgeous….and where oh where did you get those little flower pots with the flowers in them? For the life of me I can’t remember the flowers name, blue bells?

  16. Congratulations! I posted a comment.

  17. Happy 200th post, Alycia! Your pretty in pink Easter table is just gleaming and wonderful. I love your bunnies and the champagne bucket for the centerpiece. The vintage tea cart makes such a nice serving piece. All the mossy elements add that special touch of nature and greenery.
    Happy Easter to you and Ramon and your family. xo

  18. Your hyacinths are gorgeous! I love the richness of the wood table with the silver, and Mr. “Bunny Ban” is so fun and unique. The moss elements look so elegant, too! Happy 200th post, my friend. 🙂

  19. I love the bare table and the pot bellied bunnie, but can we talk tall silver vases???? What are they, like 5″ tall?? Amazing. Love the dishes too. I see more and more where you get your amazing taste. Dianne

  20. Alycia, Your hyacinths looks so real, I can practically smell them! They’re beautiful in your silver champagne bucket with the moss runner and little pots of blooms. I love your napkin fold with your menu tucked inside with your pink and gray table. Your bunnies look so dapper too 🙂 Congratulations on your 200th post and Happy/Hoppy Easter!

  21. Alycia, The Gray and pink color theme is delightful for a fresh take on Easter. The dignified rabbits brought a big smile to my face, I love the character they bring to the table. I do have to say the first thing I noticed was your beautiful bare wood table and those beautiful chairs. Gorgeous!!

  22. 200 posts! Congrats! Loving your gray dishes combined with the pink accents. And of course I love moss and hyacinths in the spring. Have a wonderful Easter!

  23. Hi Alycia,
    Congratulations on your 200th!! You have an infinite wealth of imagination!!
    I love the pink and gray table setting…a different look for Easter. I just need to find a stately bunny rabbit in gray tails. Happy Easter to you and your family. Love and hugs, Rene

  24. Alycia,
    E X Q U I SI TE!!!
    Oh, that is the most adobable bunny figurine, dear friend!!!
    LOVE all the repetition of pink & white throughout the tablescape,
    buffet and tea cart! Festive color palette!!!
    Congratulations on your 200th blog post!!!
    Keep ’em comin’!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  25. Oh my – you are so fabulous! Those tall vases just melt me! I am having vase envy and you always do large and fabulous so well. What a stately gentleman bunny. I wouldn’t expect your bunny to be any less perfect. I bet you about screamed when you saw him. He is the most handsome bunny ever. I just love green moss for runners and placemats and this one is so pretty. I feel like we are out on the lawn for your beautiful Easter dinner. I hope you have a wonderful Easter! Much love!!

  26. Your bunny….I want it. I like your pink and gray combo, very adult! How you carry your theme from the table to other places in the room always fascinates me. I’m not quite that detailed, but maybe one of these days you will have inspired me to go a step further.

  27. I absolutely love the grey and pink together. What a great color combination. I love this table setting and your buffet looks divine!

  28. OK, late here, but better late than never. (And I’m NEVER going to get out of my blog funk if I don’t chisel out time to get inspired with table snooping.)

    I love this one because the pale pink and silver combo is one of my all time favorite combos. It’s so elegant. I loved the little bunny whimsy to go along with it, and you are RIGHT that a pair of wire specs, and he would be Benjamin Bunny Franklin.

    I love your buffet, too!

  29. That is some stylin’ bunny! He is wonderful. I love this table and your choice to show the wood. Fabulous and sophisticated, but the bunny adds a “hare” of whimsy! Great colors, and your buffet looks great too. I have the topiaries name holders, but I got mine at Target.com
    Hope you had a Happy Easter, bunny! 🙂
    Doing a Spring Table link up tomorrow if you are so inclined.

  30. I obviously missed this before Easter….gorgeous table, Alycia. My first thought when I saw the centerpiece was…OMG her dining room must be intoxicatingly sweet, then I read they were faux! The two floral scents I love are peony and hyacinth…some roses are pretty nice, but most are scentless!
    Love your sophisticated rabbits…and the mercury vases on the sideboard, wow!
    Hope you are having a wonderful week…I am getting my next post ready.
    Enjoy this beautiful weather…who knows how long it will last!

  31. Congrats Alycia for the 200th post!
    And what a lovely way to celebrate with this gorgeous Easter Table.
    With a table setting like this I wish that we had Easter every day 🙂
    Hope you had lovely Holidays and a gret Easter celebration!

  32. hi Alycia, I don’t know how I missed this, my blog reader is missing some of my favorite blogs so I have been checking on them~sorry! Love Mr. Rabbit overseeing your wonderful pink table! Question, you always have gorgeous printed menus, do you print them or have them made? They are such an elegant touch, and I know guests appreciate knowing what they’re eating~
    Hope you had a wonderful time!
    Jenna

  33. HIppity Hoppity Hooray!! Congrats on 200 wishing you many more. Love the tablescape I bet your flowers smell amazing! 😉 What they’re faux??? You had me convinced they are the real thing!
