I know that Spring is out there somewhere.
This Winter has been especially harsh and long and oh, so cold. I know many wonder “What are you going on about? You’re Canadian, it’s in your blood to do the cold.”
Well, I don’t DO winter and this year has been particularly draining. It’s made for ongoing chit-chat and angst amongst us, but I am done and more than ready to welcome Spring with open arms.
So, while I’m not getting much inspiration from the snow and soot outside, I can find inspiration in the colours and lightness of Spring.
So, it is with Springtime and pastels and everything pretty and lovely that I styled this Easter table setting.
Whenever I start with a design, I like to find my anchor piece (if you want to check out my video on that topic, go here). Usually it’s an item, or a specific colour and in this case, I was inspired by the purple cake stand and used that as my anchor piece.
Whenever you want to incorporate details and items into your design, check back in with your anchor to determine if it fits well; does it compliment your design or hinder it? Being able to ask that question will keep you on track for an awesome party.
Playing with the soft tones of Spring like pink, moss green and purple can make an Easter setting fun and whimsical and just pretty.
Spring is the season of the tulip and parrot tulips are so lovely. A great flower to work with, it can be used in many types of vessels.
I wove various touches of purple throughout, like in the candy and also the sequin eggs. Complimentary colours like the soft pink, yellow and green added the depth and interest that I was looking for.
Yes, I’m feeling better already. More positive, energized and ready to go.
Now as long as I don’t look out the window or go outside, everything should be just fine. Enjoy.
