Set Your Table With Flair--Easter Rhapsody in Blues
When I was planning my table for this Sunday's gathering, I wanted to go a little more low-key than usual. We don't normally eat outdoors for Easter, but when I began this post, the weather was completely overcast. I wasn't getting much light indoors. Spring to me is all about light and sunshine, so I wanted as much light on my table as possible. By the time I was completely set, the sun decided to come out of hiding and grace me with its wonderful warmth.
I began with a bright white tablecloth.
Next, I placed a small fabric piece diagonally to bring in the initial blue, serving as a runner.
In the middle of my table, I placed a large Easter Basket arrangement using the technique I always use for basket arranging. If you would like to see the tutorial, visit the post on my other blog The Crafting Table by clicking here.
Next, I placed my blue fleur-de-lis plates,
their coordinating saucers,
and a simple salad plate to complete the stack.
I placed a navy napkin adorned with light blue ribbon next.
Followed by a small bunny ornament
and Easter topiary tree place setting.

The cobalt flutes came next,
followed by adorable bunny candleholders with blue tapers in them. The theme of my Easter décor this year definitely has been all about bunnies, bunnies, and more bunnies!
Here is a closeup of each candleholder. Aren't they sweet!?
You can't really tell from the photos, but these are really a very pale blue. Here is a pic indoors...don't know if there is much difference, lol.
Finally, I set a rabbit figurine,
Rabbit trifle dish, thrifted, Amscan of Taiwan
Rabbit candleholders, thrifted, Takahashi of Japan
White cloth, generic
Floral fabric, Joann Fabric Signature print
Basket, Big Lots (and painted by myself with Martha Stewart blue pearl paint)
Florals, all, Hobby Lobby
