Easter Naturals

Do you enjoy natural elements on the table?

My Easter tablescape features natural elements that remind me of a walk in the woods or along a garden path on a warm Spring day. Bring your basket in case you want to pick something!


I stopped in Pier 1 looking for a wreath for my daughter's Easter table and found the basket above and the nests below. I'll show you her wreath later. 


I couldn't resist the nests with their natural look. I continued the natural elements with the woven chargers under the Fiesta bowl and plate. 


The etched green stemware is a bit more elegant but works so well with the green eggs in the basket and nests. I used the same stemware on my Hoppy Easter tablescape seen here

Green and yellow eggs plus dainty yellow, purple and hot pink flowers fill the nests and basket. 

The three tumbling rabbits beneath the basket are Fitz and Floyd. The purple pansies they are holding bring a little more purple to the table.


The table is ready, now I'm just waiting for family to arrive. 


I like extra purple napkins beneath the Fiesta bowl. It really makes the purple flowers in the baskets pop. My flatware belonged to my Mom and is the Daffodil Pattern by 1847 Rogers.

Susan over at BNOTP mentioned decorated cookies from Big Lots. I liked the ones she was featuring so I stopped in Big Lots in my area and found these cute decorated Easter baskets. Thanks for the tip Susan!!



My Easter Naturals table is topped off with green cloth napkins and wooden napkin rings. Two napkin choices must be better than one.

I hope you are planning an Easter celebration with your family or friends - Judy.

I bought one of those nests with eggs at Pier 1 last year and now seeing how amazing your table looks with multiples, I wish I'd got more! Love the tones of purple with the green. Your green stemware is so pretty too.

Such a gorgeous springy table with the greens, yellows and purples, Judy...and the stemware...beautiful! I love all the natural elements, especially the centerpiece basket.

Two napkin choices are always better than one if you're a member of my messy family! :-) This is so pretty, Judy! You really outdid yourself! The natural baskets and and placemats are so pretty with the pastel colors. I know Pier 1 was glad to see you!!! I think the green goblets are the perfect choice, and the little rabbits bring Easter to the table in such a cute way! (That one is REALLY limber!!!) We have a new Big Lots here in LS that opened just about 2 months or so ago. I haven't been in there yet, but if I do go I will definitely be on the lookout for these cute cookies! (I wish I had a steady enough hand to just make the doggone decorated cookies myself. Stupid shoulders!)

This is gorgeous, and I know you will score big points with this table on Easter! Have a good week!

Oh Judy this is so well done! I love the natural elements you designed into your tablescape. I really liked a lot of things that Pier 1 has this year for Easter. I really like the green etched stemware- they add a perfect design to the table. Can you believe it- I sold my Fitz and Floyd pieces that were from the same grouping as your platter. We're going to be at my mother's for Easter so no real dining at my home. Have a great Easter!
