Hey everyone!  The weekend is here and I couldn’t be happier!!!  How about you all?  We have had cooler weather lately but that doesn’t stop my Easter decorating mojo!

I have been blogging about spring centerpieces this past week and this will be my last one.  And of course, you guessed it, this particular post is detailing my Easter centerpiece/tablescape!  I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out and hope you like it along with my tips, details for achieving the look you are thriving towards.

A few days ago, I posted a picture of the focal point for my centerpiece on Instagram and then posted the completed tablescape today.  Taking you, step by step…here is what I started with.

I had a vision in my mind of what I wanted the outcome to look like and it was achieved!  I knew I wanted to use the silver platters in my tablescape and then realized they would look awesome as the focal point.    I always start with the focal point and go from there.  In order to add some softness to this display, I knew I would need to add florals and greenery.  I kind of always like to go with a theme when creating a display so that’s where the creativity comes into play!  Since my proposed theme was an elegant, simple Easter tablescape, I thought about the colors that would mix well with silver platters and galvanized candles.  Greenery and white florals instantly popped in my mind.  I did a little research on the colors of Easter and the meaning of green and white fit perfectly into my theme and what Easter represents to me.  The color green represents HOPE and the color white represents PURITY AND GRACE.  So, here comes the white florals, white and green baby’s breath and greenery.  I always try and make sure to elongate the elements as needed according to table length, width and size of décor used.  I used the white florals and greenery on each side of the centerpiece and spread them out accordingly and then used the white and green baby’s breath as fillers where needed.  After all the florals and greenery were in their correct spots, I added a white tall pillar candle on each end to top it off.  I used my placements, napkins and napkin rings that had silver gray hues to make it aesthetically pleasing…bringing it all together.  A fun little add was putting a sprig of greenery in each napkin ring to add a pop of color to the white plates they were sitting on!

The pictures below show the final display at different angles and different lighting.

Like I’ve said before, don’t be afraid to try different things especially if their items you already have. Keep mixing and matching till you get it right.  It will happen!  Sometimes, I even draw it out before hand and believe me, an artist I’m not!  I hope my tips and ideas have helped you with any of the centerpieces or tablescapes you are currently working on or looking to do in the future.  Please always feel free to comment for ideas, suggestions, etc.  I would love to hear from anyone who has taken their time to read this.
