Holiday Decor: Easter Day

I know Easter is a a little ways away. But as we walk the streets and enter shops across the city, it is clear that Easter is nearing! So, in the spirit of the upcoming season, I have put together some looks for Easter Brunch and Dinner which compliment the modern home and are simplistic designs you can do on your own.

First I have prepared for you a contemporary Easter Breakfast/Brunch. With faded tones and natural elements, good food and a unique but refreshing tablescape, waking up and greeting your family will be calming and delightful.

Shown above is a quirky "Bunny" napkin treatment for each place setting. See below for fold by fold directions on how to create this look yourself.

After Brunch and daily activities, guests are to join for dinner and you wonder how you can create a new look in the same space? Here is an elegant and sophisticated idea for the modern couple to easily replicate in your own home for guests to feel the essence of the holiday, but not be overwhelmed by the typical "child-like" feel it can have. Still playful, see below for a glimpse into the idea.

Above, I have taken some elements that were used as general decor pieces for breakfast and have refreshed the look to provide something exciting for dinner. Keeping simplicity and clean lines in mind, I brought together a bold black and white look, with pops of green and of course the "reclaimed, recycled" features of the reclaimed wood table, scraps of shredded newspaper for a nest to lay your chalkboard painted eggs and beautifully hand painted vintage dinner plates. This modern dinner table can sweep guests off their feet, all you need to add is farm to table comfort food and a wine to pair it with.
