This year I decided to forego all baby bunnies, pastels, candy accents, and eggs when planning my Easter tabletop design. Instead, I started with my favorite palette, blue and white, and decided to add a bright dose of lemons to give it a spring color pop of yellow.
My table designs always come together in my head before they hit the table and typically start with one new item I become obsessed with. This year it began with a beautiful Brazilian brand of napkin rings designed by Dani Pessoa whom I discovered on Instagram. Dani offers an incredible array of faux napkin ring designs which are so realistic looking, including: silk flowers, citrus, succulents, leaves, fruits, leaves, berries and more.
My charming melamine dinnerware is a floral/trellis pattern in a stunning color combination of green, blue and white by The Enchanted Home. The collection includes a dinner plate, salad plate, soup bowl, charger, serving tray, and serving bowl. Prices start at $22. The mini porcelain pagoda salt and pepper shakers are also from The Enchanted Home.
I discovered The Enchanted Home online store and blog on Instagram as well and not only has it has become one of my favorite resources for blue and white finds and design inspiration, founder Tina has become a friend. Hopefully, she may be putting together an Enchanted Home pop up shop in the Hamptons this summer. Fingers crossed!
For the floral arrangement this year I decided to use “forever flowers” designed by Erin Meaney at Topiaire Floral Boutique on Jobs Lane in Southampton. I have never used faux flowers before, but now that the quality has become so stunningly real I am actually open to the idea when my garden is not in season and my favorite hydrangea blooms are not so easy to get. Would you ever guess this arrangement is faux? I doubt it!
My embroidered linen Tangier Napkins in White, Gold & Silver are by Kim Seybert. I scored the set of cobalt blue glassware, and the lemon tablecloth at a recent estate sale on Gin Lane in Southampton. Check the listings on 27east.com each week to find out about upcoming weekend sales.
