Easter is on April 21st this year. It has always been one of my favorite holidays for many reasons, and I love the traditions that go along with it.
My family will enjoy a meal of baked ham, Austrian potato salad, green beans, rolls and coconut cake. They always ask, “Why do we only have this meal once a year? It’s too good to only have once.” I ask myself that sometimes too.
The theme of our Easter table this year is nature inspired with a touch of vintage charm. I have several sets of dishes that I like to mix and match. The different pieces represent two generations and I am happy to bring a little bit of my Mama’s style into the day with us.
The plates that I have are a mix of Old Country Roses by Royal Daulton and the pink Depression glass that belonged to my mother.
Even if you aren’t into DIY projects, I think you will find making a centerpiece like this doable. I like to go out and cut the ivy growing in my yard for a touch of green.
Wisteria is growing everywhere in our area right now and the fragrance is so sweet. The lavender color complements the look and feel of the table décor.
The white linen napkins are tied with a simple ribbon that matches the Wisteria. I love the look and feel of vintage linens. I have found most of mine at Estate sales or flea markets.
The final touch is setting out the Easter place cards
It takes a little time to make something look nice, but it is worth the effort for the ones you love.
