Easter Elegant Place Setting Dining Table with Vase of Tulips

While there is something to be said for tradition, it can get a wee bit monotonous, but a tweak here or there preserves it while allowing some creativity. One way is by simply changing your tablescape. Envision your table as a blank canvas and use it to set the stage for your holiday meal i.e. mix and match dishes, vary patterns but stick to the coordinating colors, etc. Make a dramatic statement or keep it simple!

Create a tablescape with pastels and seasonal décor. A small Easter egg tree with hollowed out eggs or edible ornaments makes a great centerpiece while eggcups can be used as mini vases or placard holders. Small chocolate bunnies or eggs can be used decoratively as well, and then enjoyed as a special take-home treat.

A spring-inspired tablescape is another option that lends simple beauty.  A vase filled with fresh flowers brings a bit of the outdoors in. Lilies, daffodils, and my personal favorite tulips, are all wonderful harbingers of spring.
