We’ve been having the warmest weather lately, which is so unusual for February, and it has been so nice! It’s gotten me in the mood for Spring and I’m loving it. Welcome to the Easter edition of the Styled+Set Holiday Entertaining tour, hosted by Lory of Designthusiasm! If you’re coming over from Anita’s beautiful table of Cedar Hill Farmhouse, welcome! If you’re new to CitrineLiving I’m so happy to have you here and I hope you enjoy your visit. As usual, if you’re a regular reader, you know I love to have you as well! Today I’m sharing my blue and white Easter tablescape accented with lavender details. I’ve taken a ‘Springtime’ approach to my theme this year, and I’ve decided to forego traditional Easter details with this concept. Come on in and have a look, I think you’ll love it. *Affiliate links are provided in this post for your shopping convenience – see my full disclosure policy here.Using my favorite blue and white as my jumping off point, I wanted to compliment it with lavender for a fresh Spring approach. I picked up some new blue and white floral dinner plates and layered them with my white fluted dinner plates. I found these beautiful lavender and white damask bowls with a gold edge and I love how beautifully they compliment the blue and white. The touch of gold on the rim picks up the gold flatware as well.
The base of my tablescape is layered with a basic white tablecloth and two scarves – a lavender pashmina as well as a blue and white printed one. I picked up two of these printed scarves in Chinatown last year (along with several of my chinoiserie pieces), and I love to use them to layer on a table for something unexpected.
I’m all about mixing pattern and mixing and matching, I always find it adds interest to a table.
My flowers are a combination of real and faux – the white roses and the hydrangeas are faux, and everything else is real. Again, I love to mix, and the faux are great for filling in and to help make an arrangement nice and full. I love faux flowers as well, and use the very often. You can see how I created a beautiful neutral table with only faux foliage here and here.
I really love the Spring theme to keep the table fresh and crisp looking. The layers of vibrant color in the flowers is picked up in my stemware – I’ve had these forever and still love them!
I think this is the most colourful tablescape I’ve created to date, and I’m really loving the energy colors of the centrepiece lend to the space. It’s fresh and fun and perfect for Easter and Spring entertaining.
