It’s that time again……a gathering of family and friends for this momentous occasion called Easter. For Christians this is the oldest and most important celebration and thanksgiving of Jesus’ resurrection from the grave. And, this means “breaking bread” with our loved ones to share and honor the meaning of this glorious occasion.
Which brings us to the simpler matter of……the Easter tablescape. For most of us who are entertaining others for dinner in our homes for Easter it’s important to have a table that reflects the celebration adequately. One that’s pleasing to the eye, inviting and sets the stage for the Easter theme.
And, what does eggs and bunnies have to do with Jesus and Easter you ask? Nothing, actually.
However, throughout history those things represent spring and new beginnings. Since birds usually lay their eggs in the spring, eggs are a natural symbol for spring, rebirth, and new life. And, since rabbits are very fertile animals whose babies scamper about in spring they also became symbols of spring. And, of course they eat carrots….thus the entrance of carrots, too!
With that in mind and Jesus’ resurrection being celebrated in the spring – these are the things that we generally use for our Easter tablescapes. Like this one shown above. Look at how elegant and fun this simple tablescape is. All white…..eggs and tulips. I love this!
And, this colorful one! Love the bunnies on sheets of green moss with the infusion of the pink. So sweet.
If you’re perplexed on what to do with your table just remember – the more flowers…..the better! And, you can never go wrong with crystal and lace for an Easter table.
I’m a huge fan of blue and white. Not your typical Easter colors, but what a great Easter table!
How about a cupcake centerpiece?! And, look at those individual birdhouses with treats in them at each place setting. Fun, fun, fun for kids!
How’s this for a fabulous buffet display!
Pink and white….fail proof Easter colors. Always “springy” and fun….
And, of course, don’t forget to have fun with the individual place settings, too!
Have a blessed and wonderful Easter celebration!
