EASTER ELEGANCE TOUCHED WITH GOLD

For a simple & understated look for your Easter, Palm Sunday, or even Passover table, you can't go wrong with cream, green, and accents of gold. For Easter, another use for those hanging eggs: Paint them gold and use them as your napkin ring for folded or rolled napkins. Add a simple pattern to your place settings like these Wedgwood plates I found thrifting (set of 6 @ 3.79) or gold detailed glasses (vintage set of 20 @ $12) also found through thrift. Layer in lacy details like embroidered napkins or fluffy flowers like bunches of hydrangea.







 An embroidered runner from HomeGoods adds a lacy detail to a slipcovered dining bench - Later switched for chairs. Plant stands help add height to the live ferns, layering the greens for a refreshing Spring dining area...









As an alternative to flowers for Palm Sunday,
simply use fresh cut palm fronds. Here I replaced the bargain bunnies with a series of three frosted glass hurricane pillar holders as the containers for simple palms. They were silver - a simple coat of gold spray paint helped to refresh their look for the table...

  5. A beautifully elegant table setting. Love how the design in your glasses and hurricane candle holders mirror one another.

    Great tip about spraying the eggs to coordinate as napkin holders.

    You really scored with those Wedgewood plates, too!

  19. Another great table, Lynda! I love how the texture of the bamboo lends such character to the whole look! The glassware is heavenly!!! I like how it works so well with the floral stands. It has that 1960s modern meets the Orient feel to it....if that makes any sense at all! Beautiful!
