I Easter is almost here so you better make some quick decisions about how you’re going to set your holiday table if you are hosting family or friends. I decided to use my basic silver formal tablesetting when I found these foil-wrapped chocolate rabbits which were perfect centerpiece choices. Check out my Easter table with chocolate rabbits to see how they worked together.I used a crisp white tablecloth as the base of my tablescape–white tablecloths are usually used on formal tables, and Easter seemed the perfect occasion for a formal table, Then I used my silver acrylic chargers underneath my white dinner plates with gray borders, Fitz and Floyd Rondolet. I completed the dinner settings with my Gorham Chantilly silverware and Cristal D’Arques Versailles crystal glasses.
To add color to the placesetting, I placed my napkins on top of the plates. I used a gray and pink cotton cloth napkin on each table, To get this napkin look, you lay out the gray outer napkin straight on your flat surface. Then you lay the pink inner napkin on the diagonal over the gray napkin and fold both in a triangle together. Then you hold the napkins at the center of the straight fold and pull that through a napkin ring. Once you lay it on the dinner plate, fluff the top of the napkins so they look pretty. Make sure your inner napkin shows so the color is visible.
Even with the pink inner napkins, this table doesn’t have much color without a brighter centerpiece. The foil-wrapped chocolate rabbits I found at the drugstore were unusual in that they were very realistic in their depiction and their color went with my gray dishes so well. But they still needed more color, and that’s where the hot pink azaleas in my yard came in as a perfect complement.I loved how this table turned out– you can do something similar with your own color scheme, china and available flowers. Enjoy your spring celebration with your family and friends.0
