It might not be spring here in the Southern Highlands of NSW (we’re actually going into autumn now) but that doesn’t mean I can’t be inspired to create a pretty, spring-inspired Easter table setting. When Pottery Barn reached out about styling and shooting an Easter table for them, the answer was, of course, a huge “YES”!
You all know I love nothing more than creating a beautiful table setting. So, for our Easter table this year I really wanted to do something fun and whimsical, whilst also keeping it elegant and sophisticated.
I started with the PB classic napkins and PB classic table runner in soft rose as my “jumping off” point, as I knew these beautiful blush pink linen would look gorgeous with some of my existing copper pieces. I really love how the copper adds a subtle vintage element.
Next, I selected the adorable Floral Bunny Salad Plate set , the Bunny Basket Serving Bowl and the Bunny Basket Candy Dish. I knew I wanted those as soon as I saw them as they remind me of the Brambly Hedge book series I read as a child! To me, they add the perfect amount of fun and whimsy to the table. And let’s face it, a lot of Easter is centred around children, so I knew our kids would love them too!
It can be all too easy to go overboard on the bunny theme at Easter however, where things end up looking kitsch and like a ‘Peter Rabbit Collectors Convention’ is being displayed on your table. Which is why I kept the Emma Dinner Plates , Kissing Bunny Napkin rings and serveware, all in white. It adds consistency and lets the more colourful pieces come alive!
And what’s a table setting without some gorgeous flowers, beautiful candles (from my very good friend, ZOCO Candles), AND, of course, hot cross buns and chocolate eggs?! The pastel mini eggs are an absolute favourite of mine at Easter. Shame I ate the whole bowl of them not long after the shoot despite telling myself I wouldn’t touch them until Easter Sunday! Appalling levels of willpower (insert eye roll!).
The goblet glasses are existing (I got these from Barbara’s Storehouse in Bowral a few years ago), the small pink plate is from Harris Farm in Bowral, and the cutlery is Laguiole.
This was without doubt one of my favourite shoots I’ve ever done, and I honestly can’t wait to set the table again on Easter Sunday!
A big, BIG, thank you to Pottery Barn Australia for sponsoring this post, and always being such an incredible partner to collaborate with.
Happy Easter everyone!
