I've never been an over-the-top person when it comes to holiday decor - I think this applies to most aspects of my life. I believe that less is more - and that modest ideas can be subtle yet make a statement, simple yet sophisticated. I love to use what I already have in my home and in my backyard. And I believe in keeping things simple. The fewer the steps needed, the better, as most of us simply do not have time to be running all over the place. In fact you can find everything you'll need for your Easter table at the grocery store.
As you do your food shopping, in addition to picking up eggs and food coloring, think about picking up some Jelly Beans, pastel m&ms, mini pastel foil eggs, vegetables like radishes, carrots, artichokes, clementines, ribbon, twine, candles, flowers, from the florist or grocery store. A few basic items can add brighten up any table, Easter or otherwise. Additionally, bring some branches from outdoors, and mix up your teacups, plates, napkins and silverware to add some layers and variety to your table. Use what you have and give old items new use and meaning, whether you're repurposing old jam jars, (Bonne Maman are the best!) or vases, pitchers or terra cotta planters and combine them with vintage items that have been passed down. Whether your centerpiece is a lavish bouquet of flowers, or a simple chocolate Easter Bunny - your table can be so easily put together from a trip to the grocery store as well as things you already have at home. I love mixing old and new.
