So this year we had Easter for our extended family and I was in charge of the tables, flowers, and general ambiance. I went a little overboard with the flowers I got from the supermarket but I had so much fun arranging them.
It started out as a bit of a hot mess,
but in the end it all came together quite nicely.
I ended up making nine arrangements using hydrangea, roses, tea roses, wax flowers, tulips, snapdragons, hyacinths (which smell AMAZING), and some lilies.
The formal "adult" table I accented with nests I found at this adorable little boutique near us, which I filled with pears and Easter eggs. To keep the table from looking too formal and make it a little "sweeter" I left bunny butter cookies that I spruced up with a pink ribbon on each bread plate.
I also found these adorable beeswax votive candles in the shape of an Easter chick.
The other two tables were also decorated but primarily using pastels instead of the richer colors of the formal table.
A hyacinth bouquet for the powder room.
I was also in charge of the appetizers/antipasto but with all the running around I didn't take a moment to photograph it except for the hard boiled quail eggs that I prepared. They caught my eye in the supermarket and were so eye catching that I wanted to find a way to include them in the festivities.
I hope you had a wonderful holiday!
