Color it pale but pretty, this pastel Easter tablescape would be lovely for a chick-centric breakfast or lunch. The high testosterone types might not be attracted to the delicate tones, but variety is a beautiful thing and what floats one person’s visual boat might leave another’s high and dry. Come on chicks, this one’s for you.
We find lots of layers if we deconstruct our pastel Easter tablescape. Aqua linen placemats on bottom. Vintage white dinner plates. Brand new Easter egg plate on top of the dinner plate. Pastel (pink and green) flatware. A napkin that echoes all the colors in the egg plate, with a painted wooden egg napkin ring. More vintage pastel dishes for the cups and saucers and bread and butter plates. Pretty floral paper straws in the tall glasses. “Martini” glasses with stems in our Easter colors to fill with condiments.
You can see one of the martini glasses better on the right side of the photo above. I love the chicks, don’t you? Cute little rascals.
Our vase features bunnies hugging tulips. If I had it to do over again, I would have had pastel tulips in it, rather than boldly colored roses, but the roses were available at a great price and they looked so good with other tablescapes I created for the same week. It goes to show, however, that taking pictures and studying them to see what works and what doesn’t helps you gain a better sense of what you want to do the next time — and that’s part of the fun!
