Easter is quickly approaching and I’m not going to lie, but it took me a while this year to find inspiration for my tablescape this year. In the past I’ve done an English garden theme complete with floral chintz, blue ginger jars and DIY carrot napkins. I have also gone with a Floral meets preppy design complete with gingham napkins and DIY brushstroke napkins! Years ago I even got inspired by dying easter eggs and went with Tie Dye Batik theme complete with a fabric hanging display for my chandelier.
These year I wasn’t sure what to do. I kept being drawn to doing an English garden sort of vibe, but I had already done it, so I wanted something different. I kept going back to these seed packages by Botanical Interests that I had seen at my local garden center. They had these beautiful drawings on them and I loved the font of the logo. I couldn’t get them out of my mind and voila a theme arose! Instead of English Garden I was going to do a Spring Garden that had more of a natural and gardening theme with wild flowers.
I always go through my fabric stash to see what I have that can work as a tablecloth. For my gardening theme I knew I was looking for something gingham and I found the perfect thing with small gingham pattern in orange and pink. I couldn’t find anything exactly the same, but this all pink option would work wonderfully as well.
I used the different seed packets at each place setting and added a little chalkboard garden stake as my placecards.
I wanted an organic and wild look to the centerpiece. Normally use a flower distributor to get my flowers, but it can get pricey when I have to be more bunches then I need. So, for this arrangement I went to Trader Joes and made it work! With my seed packets as my color inspiration I knew I wanted to go orange, yellow, pink/purple and green. I was able to pick up a lot of the filler flowers to help me get that wild look and then also picked up these light orange gerber daisies that I’m obsessed with, carnations and rannuculas.
I want to really bring in the garden theme so I picked up some fake butterflies at DollarTree and added put them on skewers and added them to my arrangement.
To add more of the gardening theme I also picked up some colorful pots and planted lilac colored pansies.
You know my more is more attitude so, when I felt like that plates were a little blah and I needed a punch of color I added some pretty grosgrain ribbon to the middle to add a pop of green.
I mixed up the napkins and used some old coral ones I had from Anthropologie and these happy lace trim yellow napkins. They paired wonderfully with copper napkin rings, which reminded me of copper gardening fixtures. Plus how adorable are the placemats which reminded me of a flower.
I step up the sideboard with some sweets and drinks.
My favorite cupcakes are actually not home made! I love these yummy gluten free cupcakes from Trader Joes. They are seriously the best cupcakes I have ever had. The frosting is amazing and the cake is delightful and moist. Love. I picked up some faux peonies and sniped them to size and topped my cupcakes with them.
I’m pretty happy with how it came out and hopefully it can provide you with some inspiration for your own Easter or just spring tablescape.
