This year I decided to do something totally different with my Easter table setting. Forget the traditional spring colors of pink and green, I chose the unexpected combination of blue and orange. It all started with my love affair with shades of indigo and the lovely eggs I dyed with red cabbage. (See how I did it.)
I haven’t use my pretty vintage china in a long time and since the plates have a dainty blue border, they’re perfect. I pulled out blue salad plates I picked up at Goodwill and set them on an orange table cloth.
In my Easter “box” I found a hand-crafted bunny made from wool. He’s adorable. I tucked a vintage blue hanky with a polka dot border in his lap and added a blue feather. The hanky takes the place of the usual napkin.
While I was on the “let’s do something different” path, blue martini glasses replace the expected basket. After all, I’m hosting a grown-up Easter brunch this year. A couple more feathers and it looks like the real bunny came to visit.
