Spring pastel tablesetting


Yesterday I showed how to make the paper tulip centerpiece and I thought I'd provide an idea on how to display it in a beautiful setting for your spring celebration, whether it be your outdoor Easter dinner or Mother's Day brunch. Wouldn't pastels be so lovely? I used to cringe at pastels but now I find them so beautiful, especially when combined with some deeper tones like the colors in the flowers and the ombre candle holders I decorated. I'll show a few of the DIYs later in the day, but for now, here are some ways to celebrate the spring.
TIP: I picked up all of the tableware from Ikea. They have the loveliest colors right now. Mint plates and bowls, pink and white candle holders, a beautiful white pitcher. AND, they are so so cheap! I have a thing for plates so I kind of think you can never have too many!
TIP: For place settings, I bought these little wooden eggs and put each person's monogram on it. I'll be doing a DIY on it later today.
TIP: Melissa Esplin of I Still Love You created a beautiful "Happy Easter" sign that works perfectly in a basket. OR, you can make it mini and stick it in some Easter eggs (like she did here). OR print it off really huge and use it as a decoration. I love her work. Download the free template here.
TIP: I'll be providing a DIY later today on these candle votives, which I LOVE! I think they'd also be perfect for baby showers, bridal showers, and birthdays, doncha think?
Stay tuned for the DIYs on how to make this happen.
