You all know I love nothing more than creating a beautiful table setting. So, when Pottery Barn reached out about creating an Easter table for them, the answer was, of course, a huge “YES”! For our Easter table this year I really wanted to do something fun and whimsical, whilst also keeping it feminine and sophisticated. You can also see my 2021 Easter table here.
I started with the PB classic napkins and PB classic table runner in soft rose as my “jumping off” point. These beautiful blush pink linen pair beautifully 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. As soon as I saw them, I knew I had to have 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 was certain 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’. 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 pop.
Of course, what’s a table setting without some gorgeous flowers, beautiful candles (from my very good friend, ZOCO Candles), AND, of course, hot cross buns?! The pastel mini eggs are another favourite of mine at Easter. Shame I ate the whole bowl of them not long after the shoot. 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. The cutlery is Laguiole.
This was without doubt one of my favourite shoots I’ve ever done. 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. They are always being such an incredible partner to collaborate with.
Happy Easter everyone!
