Some of our favorite memories have been made around the dining table. Whether it’s creating a new seasonal tablescape with my mom, or just enjoying the comfort of a home-cooked meal, the table is always a special place for us to savor time with our family and friends. With Easter approaching, our team thought of a few simple and elegant ways to present the perfect table to host your loved ones. 

The first way to display a beautiful tablescape is by creating an eye-catching centerpiece. There is no need for special talents to enhance your table with this effortless arrangement. In a few short tasks you will have a centerpiece ready to impress all of your guests. 

Begin by choosing your favorite decorative bowl, like this Marie gold & gray bowl. Fill it with a few of your favorite fresh plants. An odd number of plants, 1, 3 or 5, is a good place to start depending on the size of your bowl. We recommend any medium sized fern or potted flower to create the foundation of your arrangement. In the remaining space, fill the holes with smaller green plants and moss to complete a fresh, live look. 

For a longer lasting option, you can use botanicals like our 21” orchid drop-ins, and preserved boxwood balls. Fill any extra space with baby green plants or Spanish moss, and your centerpiece is complete!

Another elegant way to present your table is through a classic place setting. It’s all about creating a layered look! Define each setting with a colorful placemat like this beautifully functional celedon and white pearls placemat. Add a decorative charger like our white washed rattan charger. It's a favorite of ours for the warmer months! Next, layer your dinner and salad plates. We love to bring out the china for special occasions, but these carmel plates are a wonderful option for spring. 

To finish, add silverware and napkins, and for a fun, creative touch add these decorative robin’s egg nests or moss bunnies atop each plate! More finishing touches include our rattan glassware and colorful taper candles. Try these few short tips for your table this spring, and share photos of your masterpiece!
