Easter is tomorrow, which doesn’t hardly seem possible, so I’m coming in hot at the last second with some last minute inspiration for your Easter dinner table! (Or your Easter brunch table for that matter.) I teamed up with my friend Briana of Pretty Little Vintage Co. to blend pieces from her amazing collection of vintage finds with basics I already had to create a modern, elegant dinner table that feels really chic and celebratory, but didn’t take a huge budget to pull together. (Pro tip! Rentals aren’t just for weddings and formal events. You can and should absolutely consider rentals for things like holiday dinners and parties, too!) Pretty blue floral vintage dessert plates were paired with very inexpensive white dinnerware, layered with cloth napkins and gorgeous vintage gold flatware to create the sweetest mix. Crystal wine glasses (which my mom snagged me as a gift on super clearance a couple years ago) are matched with blue cut glass goblets, and a field of mismatched brass candlesticks serves as the simplest of centerpieces. All in all, it’s a look that skips Easter pastels in exchange for a touch of elegance that would also serve perfectly for any dinner party.
To add that touch of the decidedly Easter, I tucked these inexpensive white bunnies with gold ears along the table. I believe the one style was intended to hold Easter candy, but I tucked florist foam and white carnations in there instead which looks so cute. The prettiest bowl is piled high with hand painted Easter eggs created by Briana’s grandmother, which is such an incredible sentiment. I love the idea of having something special every year that you pull out to adorn the Easter table in tradition! Finally, little cabbages which I carved out and packed full of baby’s breath serve as that last element of spring and Easter that makes the table feel complete.
