It is hard to believe Easter is right around the corner, we have had a few spring-like days in Tennessee, and I hope the cold weather is behind us. For the first time, I am hosting my family for Easter. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to give my Mom a break from entertaining. I plan to use this same tablescape, but hopefully move it outside if it is nice weather.
After what feels like the longest winter, I was ready for a fresh color scheme. The bright green gingham paired with the brown bunny plates created a pretty color scheme. I incorporated texture with natural elements such as the seagrass chargers and moss bunnies. Pops of gold added a nice modern touch, how cute are these gold foiled bunnies?! The art over the bar cart is where the color inspiration came from, I adore this floral print by Inslee.
I am a traditionalist when it comes to Easter menu planning. For our Easter brunch, we had spiral ham, scalloped potatoes, deviled eggs, asparagus tart, glazed carrots, roasted artichokes, rolls, boozy banana pudding (recipe coming to The Sip soon), and of course Jackson Morgan Southern Cream cocktails. I especially love our peaches and cream and banana pudding flavors this time of year.
Although I love fresh flowers, they often die too quickly. For this table, I used speckled egg vase filler in a pretty hurricane that I can display all spring and reuse next year. I added mini moss baskets, which holds Jackson Morgan Southern Cream mini bottles perfectly for party favors. My crystal glasses dressed up the table for the occasion. I was thrilled when I found these crystal cordial glasses, which are basically a fancy shot glass to serve Jackson Morgan in for parties. Ruthie and Oliver letterpress place cards matched the napkins and table throw well.
How are you celebrating Easter? #sipandbesocial
