Easter Sunday will be here before you know it and with hosting this holiday comes great responsibility. First there is easter egg decorating, which can be a monumental task in of itself, but then there is the organizing and the hunting for these said eggs paired with cooking, decorating and, of course, still coming out looking like the hostess with the mostest that you are! Take a look at some editorial inspiration for some table decorating ideas.
The walls in this dinning room are the perfect setting for a posh Easter gathering. The flowers are colorful and relatively simple, yet their abundance and height is where the statement is made.
A deconstructed Easter table. This modern interpretation of an Easter floral centerpiece is really unique and sets itself apart from the rest. It was a really inspired (and a quick, cheap fix) to use dollies as a table runner. Paired with the branch centerpiece, all white serving pieces and simple linens the dollies still look modern and not like your Grandma’s table of yesteryear.
The table cloth matches the china, which even matches the eggs in this traditional table setting. We love this china setting, it reminds us a great deal of our Pink Pastoral Toile Dinnerware set.
We love this setting because the picture alone makes us feel like we want to go to this party. The pastel bunny garland and cupcakes have that domestic diva feel. Going with yellow as the predominant theme is a nice touch as well, since normally pink and green dominate the Easter scene.

Kids arriving for the Easter egg hunt!
Even a rained out Easter egg hunt, as last year’s was, can still be fun! Hawks held hers in her basement and the kids still had a great time!

Easter egg hunting can get pretty intense, especially when you have hoards of kids coming over. Switch it up a little bit and have the kids participate in an Easter Roll instead.
The Easter Roll is an annual event held on the front lawn at the White House, originally started by Dolly Madison, the wife of President James Madison, in 1814.
The roll itself is actually a race where children push an egg with a long-handled spoon as you can see President Obama’s daughter Sasha doing last year. Once the table settings and activities are in place maybe you’ll have five seconds for yourself. Since Easter is a pious, yet festive, Holiday dressing appropriately and true to yourself can be tricky.
When putting together this look-book we choose pieces with just a little bit of metallic sheen or a fun pop that allows you to distinguish yourself from the rest, but still look church ready!
