planning easter lunch

It dawned on me this weekend that Easter is this upcoming Sunday.  While I am looking forward to hosting my family for Easter lunch, I also realized, I need to finalize my menu and décor!  Last night I sketched out my tablescape plan along with a draft of the menu.  I haven’t finalized the menu yet, but I will share it when I do {it will have a focus on seasonal items}.

As for the table, I’ve landed on a clean pink and white concept with subtle accents of green.  Below is a moodboard I put together to give you an idea of what I’ve selected.  I often put these types of moodboards together for clients to give them a visual for the event we are working on, and find myself using them just as often for my own creative projects. You will see that I’ve selected 2 different linen napkins, my plan is to alternate these two patterns along the table, balancing out cleanliness with subtle details of spring.

dessert | the cake in the middle is an image of the cake I served last Easter, made by Jocelyn at Mayflour Confections. I added a quail egg to the top for a subtle Easter detail and served it with macarons {speaking of – how adorable are these Easter chick macarons?}.  This year I plan to continue with a minimalistic aesthetic. {image 1, image 2, image 3}

flowers | to carry the ombre-esque effect of the plates through I am planning on using a variety of in season blooms in complimentary shades of pink with white mixed in.  When I was at the flower market last week shopping for flowers for a client’s event, I was inspired by the cherry blossoms as well as the tulips in varying shades of pink. I also have some vintage bunnies that I’ve borrowed from my mother to give the table the festivity it needs.  {image 1 via, image 2 &3 taken by me at the market}

It’s nice to see and use lighter, brighter colors this time of year.  It’s equally as nice to see that seasonal items such as cherry blossoms, ranunculus, peonies, tulips, fiddleheads and asparagus have arrived. Spring is officially here which is lovely to be able to say!  I will be back with my menu later today or tomorrow.

In the meantime, wishing you a great week ahead!
