Celebrate the Beauty of Spring with a Delightful Easter Table Setting
The dreary winter months are finally over, and what a cause for celebration—spring has arrived! The weather is getting warmer, beautiful trees and flowers are beginning to bloom, and Easter is just around the corner. Whether you’re hosting an elaborate affair or planning a simple meal for your immediate family, a delightful Easter table setting can give your dining room table an instant makeover that will help make the holiday even more joyous.
Decorative centerpieces consisting of baskets full of pastel eggs, fluffy yellow chicks and adorable chocolate bunnies are typical on Easter, but your choice of place settings can also make a huge impact. Forgo paper napkins and choose cloth napkins instead—they can be folded into miniature works of art that add a sophisticated touch to the entire meal. It’s a rather simple gesture, but your family and friends will be amazed at your knack for design.
Dinner napkins come in a variety of sizes that can be folded beautifully. White is a safe choice, but you may want to select napkins that coordinate with your tablecloth, plates and other table decorations. Many cloth napkins are even adorned with ribbons, rolled stitches or other simple embellishments. Add a corresponding place card in front of each table setting, and you’re good to go!
