Covering the Table

Whether you use a long rectangular or table for 4, covering it with table cloth really helps set the color scheme for this tablescape. All the colors that make you think of Easter and Spring are in this table cloth. Pink, green, yellow, pale green, hot pink, to blue, every color gives a palate to decorate from.

Once you determine your table cover, next is the dinnerware, especially if you own bunny plates or would like to get some. I found these at Williams & Sonoma a few years ago, but has them, tap on link to go to page. My plates are salad plates, they give the impact I want with out a lot of expense, and they will not compete with the dinner menu. Meaning, I use white dinner plates for serving the food for this calms the eye and doesn’t compete with back ground colored plates.

So layer your dinner plate with the decorative salad bunny plate, add silverware and side napkin.

In addition to the cabbage vase and beautiful tulips, a single tulip is placed in a water pick and inserted into the fold of golden napkin at each place setting. As a take home gift and sweet reminder of the beauty of Easter and Spring.

Insert the glass jar inside the cabbage vase.  Be sure to hold the bottom of the cabbage if you are transferring the vase.  Arrange tulips as desired to create the free flowing look you desire.

You can make this vase one day ahead and cover with plastic wrap in refrigerator.  To help keep the inside of the cabbage from turning color, place a wet paper towel inside the opening, cover with plastic wrap and keep chilled until ready to assemble.

Sorry mom…I just had to have it!

She clipped it right in too. I wouldn’t let her eat it though.. since it came from a floral shop I was concerned about preservatives and the like. Funny she didn’t go after the cabbage leaves?

She is getting used to photo shoots, unlike JJ my beloved bunny who loved the camera and attention.
