Easter is one of my favorite Holidays that I have always loved. It is one of the holidays that holds so many special memories. Easter to me represents the beginning of Spring and a new beginning. Colorful flowers start to bloom, the green grass starts to sprout, the air is fresh and clean, and everyone starts to wear pastel colors. Although this year will be much different than past Easters, I wanted to share my Easter design with you! These times are stressful and unknown, so I hope this Easter room makes you feel; happy, positive, and removes you from reality, if even just for a moment! Please stay healthy, safe, and well. The best thing to look forward to right now, is knowing that Summer is right around the corner.
Setting up the hutch for Easter, with playful dishes and custom wooden Easter Bunnies. I painted the inside of this vintage hutch a beautiful pale mint green which lends to the perfect backdrop for a collection of new and old dishes. I had handmade pottery custom made in my colors with a mix of polka dots and stripes. Mint green and white striped pottery blend beautifully with white and cream French pitchers and platters. The little custom wood Easter Bunnies pose perfectly on the shelves. Hippity Hoppity…
Easter wouldn’t be Easter without beautiful little sweet treats. I made little meringue kisses, covered in sweet white sugar. I then layered them on a simple cottage style cake plate, lined with pretty bakers paper, which sits on a second cake plate full of delicate white on white petit fours, layered with white buttercream. White sugar cookies covered with fairy sugar and mint green fairy dots, are irresistible on a vintage Milk Glass lattice plate.
Looking through the white Apple Bloom Flowers, towards the mint green and white hutch full of beautiful dishes is so satisfying to me. Vintage criss cross glass doors sit wide open, inviting your eye in. I absolutely love love to layer for interest – so I extended the design outside the glass by adding hanging dishes on the wall.
Fresh tulips are a must for me, when it comes to Easter, as well as having them in my garden. I added the fresh blooms to my English vintage enamel pitcher. I love to mix and match fabrics, textures, and even flowers. Turquoise and white Polka Dot Dinner napkins are mixed with Striped Dinner Napkins in the same hues. Always have fun with whatever you do in your home.
This custom mint green linen table cloth is the perfect base layer to add white dishes, candy jars, and cake stands atop. Adding a touch of black and white to the table and hutch, as well as a touch of vintage, adds depth to the look. Little baby dishes with scolloped edges full of Easter Jelly Beans, is a sweet personal touch for each guest.
Final touches are just like the icing on the cake. Custom slipcovered cushions blend seamlessly on the white wicker dining chairs, topped with pretty throw blankets.
I hope by pulling this entire Easter room together, brings a little happiness to you, and to whoever you are able to share it with. The Easter Bunny will hop up the path with goodies in his basket for all! Happy Easter, from my family to yours! xo
