Are you a fellow pink lover?
For Easter this year we hosted a couple of small gatherings at our home, which meant that I was able to create some creative new tablescapes. I love to challenge myself to achieve something new and different and absolutely love the creative process. Its even better when we get to share it with the people we love. This year I chose to year the back terrace for one of the gatherings.
I took some inspiration from some bud vases that I purchased from Petersham nurseries in Convent garden (actual new favourite shop and restaurant) and also some tree branches from the cork trees in our garden.
Whilst in New York last year we visited a restaurant called palma (I wrote about it here) which had hundreds of beautiful blooms in bud vases everywhere, so this was also a source of inspiration.
I wanted to create a fresh, delicate and spring like vibe. I also had the cutest maxi dress from Asos that would work perfectly with the theme (self confessed event dresser over here)
I arranged creamy ranunculus (the delicate layers of their petals made them perfect for my theme) along with their buds, bunny grass (perfect Easter foliage, even in name) and garden roses to bud vases along the table, along with hyacinths, daffodils and Jasmine from the garden. I kept the plates very clean and simple in white and clear glass stemware.
I was pleased that it came out completely different to very pink theme I created last and the pastel theme from the year before
Easter for me is the perfect excuses to pull together a pretty, spring-inspired, tablescape year after year. It is time for me when all I want to do is spend time with people I love, always feels like the perfect reason to pull out all the stops and throw our doors wide open to our family members and friends.
And whats even more perfect about this particular tables cape is that its totally budget friendly. Using items found foraging, and creating a delicate floral arrangement with bud vases really gives you more for your money without compromising on aesthetics
Happy Easter to you all
We celebrated Easter Sunday last year with an alfresco dinner in the Garden. The weather was so lovely despite Easter being 2 week earlier than usual, so we decided to make the most of it and enjoy our outdoor areas
If you have read my blog for a while, you'll know I love celebrating Easter, and last year was no exception. I like to decorate the house and create a beautiful tablescape for the celebrations. Its just so much fun and seeing a creative vision come to life gives me so much pleasure.
I set the table up at the front of the house which is actually my favourite area to entertain guests. When dinner is finished we can retire to the back terrace and enjoy totally new views of the house.
Surprise, surprise I went for a pink theme once again... I literally can't help myself, but it is my favourite colour. However, I do think it looks different to last years table, which is all that matters right?
I lined Square pink vases down the centre of the table and Filled them with various shades of white and Pink roses and Ranunculas (one of my favourite flowers). I also used a rose pink table cloth to make the look extra pretty and feminine. I wanted to grey shutters to add a contract to the pink, so I accentuated with a lilac/ grey colour plate.
Is there anything more enchanting than candles flickering in the warm evening as the sun comes down?
I hope my post gives you some Easter inspiration this year!
