Our Easter Brunch Table

Easter is observed on the 1st Sunday following spring's first full moon; hence the early date this year. The only thing looking somewhat Springy in my yard .......the green grass.  :)  Nothing blooming at all....but exactly two daffodils.  Even the forsythia isn't blooming or the ornamental trees.  What this means is, I had a hard time deciding on the theme for our Easter brunch table.  Family and neighbors are coming on Saturday.  Wish you were too! 
 Not wanting to buy flowers but using what I had, I decided to go with a woodsy garden theme. My plan was to use actual grass sod as a runner down the table, but my local garden store hadn't gotten any in yet, so I went with natural dried green moss.

I incorporated a beautiful vintage runner I found at a yard sale last summer.  It must have 8 inches of gorgeous hand made lace at each end.  This gave softness to the rustic theme.



Another yard sale find were these old wooden eggs.  I love them with the faded moss.

In keeping with the garden theme, I filled a flower pot "planted" with the utensils.  Carrots!  Green forks and spoons wrapped in orange napkins (left over from Halloween) and tied with green ribbon.  I did something a little different with my setting. With a large group coming and serving buffet style, I usually put the plates and utensils on the side table or at the end of the buffet table but this time I decided to incorporate them right into the table centerpiece, putting the plates on a pretty pedestal cake plate.

I said earlier, I was going to put the Easter bunny tail truffles I made for dessert right in the middle of the real grass but I changed my mind.  Instead using some of my altered eggs I made last year.  I like it! :)

Easter favors for my guests.  A sweet surprise in sweet bunny boxes.   
 
Spring ~ Easter

You don't need forsythia because this is gorgeous. The big bunny has it all in his good Easter Bunny paws. Have a blessed Easter, Olive

Your table is wonderful. I love every bit of it. I think putting the forks & knives in the orange napkins to look like carrots is a very clever idea. I hope everyone in your house has a wondeful Easter. :)

Everything look lovely! And I really like the little treat boxes for the guests.

We have snow on the ground! No fresh flowers here, either. ha.

Lynn! How cute and sweet is that!!!!?! I love that flower pot planted with the utensils...what a fun idea. I wish I lived closer I would pop by just for fun! xo Diana

You did an amazing job of creating Spring on your table when you couldn't use anything blooming outside! Such a cute bunny, love the cutlery tied in "carrot fashion" and the pretty lace on your linens does soften the rustic feel. Glad I stopped by from TT! Happy Easter!

This is wonderful, Lynn! I don't know whether to say cute or beautiful...a little of both, I guess! I think I am going to put my plates up like yours as we serve a buffet, too, it looks pretty. I may steal the flower pot/utensil idea, too! Now, is that real grass in the basket in one of your first pictures?

I just love everything if you can't tell! Have a happy, blessed Easter!

XO,
Jane

Hi, Lynn! That runner is "Cameron fabulous"!!! All that lace on the ends...so pretty!!! I love the way it works to bring softness to the tablescape. Great way to display the flatware & napkins! The colors go so well with the buffetscape! LOVE the favors! That is a really fresh idea in those cute boxes!!!

Happy, Happy Easter to you and yours! Relax, enjoy, and be blessed!

Lynn, your table is gorgeous. We had a few narcissus in bloom until the darned freeze took them all out this week. Same boat here. I ordered tulips from the wholesale florist. I'm just not as creative as you! Your centerpiece is a masterpiece. Love the look and the lace pieces are outstanding. Have a beautiful evening and a blessed Easter. xo marlis

I love your natural Easter table... with a little bling! Did you make an extra box. YUMMY!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Love it, Lynn! Your table looks so pretty. That adorable bunny is a perfect focal point of your centerpiece!

Rebecca said...

Just beautiful! I love the natural elements you used! Happy Easter to you!

Sarah said...

Lynn, your Easter table is sheer delight! I love the natural feel to your centerpiece. Darling idea to make the flatware into "carrots". Happy Easter Weekend! ~ Sarah

Beverly said...

Nothing blooming here other than a handful of daffodils either. I gave in and purchased a small bunch of white daisies for our table.

I adore what you have done for your table, Lynn. The flatware looks great. Very clever.

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Easter.

Happy Easter, my friend!

Thanks so much for you sweet comments, and no, I only have this IPAD that I swiped from the mister. Not giving it back till I get a new 'puter, either. ;-)

I love your cute decorations, and I agree with you about what a special holiday this is, and the resurrection is even more poignant to me this year than ever.

Sending you love across the miles. Believe it or not, we have bloomed out in terms of azaleas and such. Not much left on the bushes. Fred's cousin over near Richmond keeps sending me snow shots of her corgi in the snow. I know y'all must be sick of it by now. Praying for spring to come for you...

Happy Easter!

XO,

Sheila

This is a very pretty table and I really like the natural theme. My favorite part is the way you did the utensils. So cute! Hope you and your family have a wonderful Easter Sunday!

Jeanie said...

Oh, my! If I didn't already feel all Eastery, I would now! How absolutely beautiful. The naturals really are wonderful!

Happy Easter!
