Spring Tulips on a Colorful Easter Table

Have you thought about how you are setting your Easter table?  This year, I decided to start with pink tulips and build my table around them.  In fact, I tried two different combinations using tulips.


In my first setting, I tied a pink ribbon around a tulip and white napkin.  I have had these green and white place mats forever and I like the way they pick up the green from the tulip stem.


I also placed some white tulips in vases down the center of the table.


I used blue and white plates for the settings to tie into the blue and white accessories I have been using in the room lately.


For the centerpiece, I used this white bunny planter that I had on my deck.


I filled it with the Easter Eggs my kids and I decorated at my mom's house a couple weeks ago.  These are actually craft eggs so I don't have to worry about them rotting.


The centerpiece is low enough so it doesn't block the people across the table.


If you decide to use live tulips like I did, you might want to add them to the place setting right before your guests arrive since obviously they aren't getting any water.  Tulips don't last very long as it is.  Or, I guess you could use those water tubes on the ends.  Then the guests could take the tulip home.


Another option is to buy artificial tulips.




After trying the bunny and egg centerpiece, I tried using the tulips and eggs in a different way...


In my second setting, I used the pink tulips as the centerpiece.


I like the height they give the center of the table, yet they are not high enough to block anyone.


Then instead of using one tulip on each place setting, I used the eggs from the previous centerpiece.


All the eggs are different but I still used the pink ribbon to keep the settings from looking too busy.


We painted with paintbrushes on some of the eggs and used markers on the others.  Placing the egg below each bow kind of makes the bow look like bunny ears.


Obviously, I didn't change any of the other pieces on the table but I had fun trying the two options for the tulips and eggs.


It's always fun to experiment with different looks, isn't it?




It's also nice to see the sun shining again.  I am hoping this spring weather sticks around.


At least it's feeling like spring in my kitchen.  I hope I have given you some ideas to decorate your Easter table.  If you are like me and can't get enough tulips, stop by to read my post, Ways I Have Decorated with Tulips for more inspiration.  Happy Easter to you!

Sources:

Bunny Planter - I think I bought mine at Homegoods but this bunny planter is cute and this little bunny planter is adorable as well!
Craft Eggs - If you can't find them in a craft store, these craft eggs look similar to the ones I used and  these craft eggs come with paints and brushes.
Rattan Chargers - I bought mine at Pier One but these rattan chargers are very similar.
Blue and White Plates - These are the same Johnson Brothers Blue Willow Plates I have.
Floral Water Tubes - If you want to use these for live tulips, I found some floral water tubes that are clear and hopefully wont' be that noticeable.
Artificial Tulips - If you want to go artificial, check out your local craft store but if you can't find any, these artificial pink tulips have great reviews and are only around 13 inches high so they wouldn't hang over the plate too much.
Hope that helps!

Which of the two looks do you prefer?

I'd love for you to follow along so you don't miss a post!

  5. I am loving all the flower uses I’ve seen today and this is perfect! Simple yet springie. And the tulips against the blue/white tranferware plates just gives this a very Dutch feel. Love it!
