Easter Tablescape Ideas

March 7, 2024

Last year our Easter table was bright and fun, and made up mostly of thrifted items or things handed down to me from my Granny.

For starters, my mom, Granny and I all have the same silver pattern. I remember for years, long before I got married and had a gift registry, they would impress upon me the importance of this, so that I could have dinner parties for scores of people and have matching place settings! Ours is Grand Baroque and I do love it. However, I also love to mix and match when the mood strikes me.

I started by layering various table cloths and linens. Some place settings got chargers and others didn’t, simply due to how many I had on hand that went with the overall scheme. I mixed and matched various plates, my favorite being some pink ones I thrifted that were once part of a Mary Kay set!

I adore these vintage blue Colony Whitehall cubist glasses I thrifted–I got a dozen of them! They remind me of my other grandmother, Mamaw…she had green ones! Do you see those sweet little hen salt & pepper shakers? They belonged to my great-grandmother Ocie and my Granny saved them all these years.

I fashioned the napkins into a bow (some worked out better than others) and used different napkin rings. A few were flowers and others were oyster shells.

Even the cane back chairs were thrifted – they came from our local Salvation Army store. I painted them navy and recovered the seats.

No Easter Sunday dinner (and by dinner I mean lunch, which is hours before supper) would be complete without deviled eggs, and my hubby’s recipe is delish…not to mention his method of over-stuffing them! And what about this sweet egg dish I found at an antique store? It’s simply “eggcellent”!

Happy Easter!
