Tablescape: Vintage Easter Chicks Tablescape

posted in: Tablescapes | 0

 

If you love Victorian vintage postcards and figurines, you will love this vintage Easter chicks tablescape! The vintage reproduction  male and female chick figurines I found at the Christmas Tree Shop were so adorable that I couldn’t resist adding them to my collection of Easter decorations so I could tablescape with them.I began with a clean, pressed white cotton tablecloth against which all the bright Easter colors would stand out. I used lime green straw rectangular placemats as the base of the tablesetting for color. Then I added plain white china dinner plates and clear-glass pedestal goblets and pewter flatware. On each dinner plate, I added a china Easter cupcake favor with a knotted yellow and white polka dot cotton napkin for more color and fun. The top of each pastel cupcake, also found at the Christmas Tree Shop, features an Easter bunny or chick and several Easter eggs; the top lifts off to reveal space in the base for holiday treats. You could use Easter candy or small trinkets which each guest can take home as well as the china cupcake.

For my centerpiece, I had my two vintage Easter chick figurines, but of course they needed some colorful filler to help them. I used pink paper shreds I already had–these are sold with giftwrap and ribbons in many stores that carry party supplies. Colored Easter grass could easily be used in place of the shreds. Then I added some pastel natural-looking faux bird eggs of several sizes at the base of the figurines to add to the Easter flavor of the tablescape.

You could easily dress this tablescape up for a more formal look. You could use a dressy placemat or charger as well as a different china pattern and napkins. You could tuck in live flowers at the base of your figurines for a real springtime look. You could use Easter rabbit figures instead of the vintage checks for a pretty table. Let this tablescape inspire you to make your own adaptations for a lovely tablesetting of your own. Enjoy!
